We Need To Talk About The "Ant-Man" Post-Credits Scene

MAGNET OR VISE? Spoilers ahead!

Posted on

Spoilers ahead! While this post DOES NOT contain spoilers for any plot points of Ant-Man, we will be talking in unnecessarily exuberant detail about the post-credits scene at the end of Ant-Man. Not the mid-credits scene. The post-credits one. If you haven't seen it yet and don't want to know, this post will make you very sad if you continue reading.

So Ant-Man was very good, funny, and entertaining, and full of Rudds both tall and small, but I have a very important question about the end-credits scene. While leaked video of it has already been scrubbed from the internet, some very grainy GIFs remain.

Steve and Sam find Bucky (!!!!!) in what appears to be a very uncomfortable position in... a garage? A warehouse? A bar in Williamsburg?

And his arm is stuck in something. "Oh no what do we do oh no look at the baby" is roughly the approximation of what Steve says. And then all of us watching weep and clutch one another as Sam's like, "I know a guy." (Because we all needed to know why the heck small Rudd was going to be in Captain America: Civil War along with the rest of Western civilization.)

But y'all: WHAT IS THIS?

Not his face. I know what that is. WHAT IS HIS ARM STUCK ON/IN/TO?

  1. Now comes the great question of our generation. Is this a vise or a magnet?

    Vise. Obviously. It's squished, and also a magnet is too ridiculous and undignified to even consider.

    It's FOR SURE a magnet. Bucky would just be able to break out of a vise. Super soldier, remember?

    It's probably a vise but I desperately want it to be a magnet because Bucky getting stuck to a magnet literally happened in a fanfic I read once and I want it to be real. Just give me this, @God.

    We're all laughing but what if he was trying to REMOVE HIS OWN ARM out of GUILT, you guys? WHAT IF BUCKY WAS TRYING TO UNDO HIMSELF? You guys?! YOU GUYS???

    Reading #4 has made my soul scream as though plunged through the soul-heart with a sword made of my own feelings, and I need to go hug my Bucky Barnes action figure and/or read some fluff.

I encourage spirited vise vs. magnet debate in the comments.
