Ant-Man 3 – aka Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania – is in cinemas now, which means it’s time for us to breakdown the movie’s TWO post-credits scenes.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is the third – and potentially final – Ant-Man movie. It’s also Scott Lang’s darkest adventure yet, if not his best, as stated in our review of the movie.

The Ant-Man 3 official synopsis is as follows: In the film, which officially kicks off Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, superhero partners Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne return to continue their adventures as Ant-Man and the Wasp. Together, with Hope’s parents Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, the family finds themselves exploring the Quantum Realm, interacting with strange new creatures, and embarking on an adventure that will push them beyond the limits of what they thought was possible. Jonathan Majors joins the adventure as Kang.

How many post-credits scenes are there in Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania

There are two post-credits scenes in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

The first involves a gang of Kangs, and sets up future movies, perhaps even leading up to Avengers: Kang Dynasty in 2025.

The second is a brief period piece that plays out on earth, sometime in the past, and seems to lay the groundwork for a Marvel sequel series on Disney+…

Ant-Man 3 mid-credits scene explained

Quantumania’s mid-credits scene revolves around the Council of Kangs. A group of characters – all played by Jonathan Majors – are standing in the wings of a huge stadium, arguing about Kang the Conqueror.

If you know comic book lore, it looks like their number includes Rama-Tut and Immortus, two of the first iterations of the character, and they are unhappy that Ant-Man and Wasp have murdered their conqueror variant.

“They’re beginning to touch the multiverse,” states one, in reference to the Marvel heroes. “And if we let them, they’ll take everything we built. So let’s stop wasting time!” He then calls upon all the Kangs, and we see that stadium fill with variants, both ready for battle, and wild with excitement.

Quantumania post-credits scene explained

Ant-Man 3’s post-credits scene is a more sedate affair. The sting plays out in a theater in what looks to be the early 1900s. A figure onstage starts talking about time, and more specifically how it shapes us, and how we can shape it.

There’s a sign next to him that states who the figure is – Victor Timely. Which prompts Loki (sitting in the audience) to say to Mobius (sitting in the next seat), “It’s him.”

Victory Timely is another Kang variant – whom you can learn about here – with the scene likely setting him up as the villain in Season 2 of Loki.
