Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man Acknowledges Thanos’ Butt Theory
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the name The ant Man? Of course, there’s the fact that he’s played by the incredibly versatile Paul Rudd. Perhaps it’s the fact that he was an active member of the time theft in which the Avengers stole the Infinity Stones from Thanos. Or maybe you’re thinking about the gigantic plot hole between Infinity War and End of Game.
When Infinity War had finished, and the whole world watched some of their favorite Avengers turn to dust, people went into a frenzy. The internet has been searching for a potential way for the remaining Avengers to defeat Thanos and bring their friends (and half the population) back. That’s until a brave person points out the obvious. Why doesn’t Ant-Man really shrink really small, crawl on Thanos’ back, and then return to his normal size? Thanos would be wiped out in the process.
While this is an unlikely solution to the problem, it may also be the simplest. It has been said by great men that the best solution to any problem is the simplest. Apparently, the MCU writers didn’t get the memo. But, it looks like Scott Lang, Ant-Man himself, did.
In a video released on a new Disney cruise ship, Paul Rudd – as Scott Lang – addresses theories as to why he didn’t just deal with Thanos on his own. He says he would like to address the elephant in the room and explain himself, but unfortunately The Wasp cuts him off before he can really get inside. We never quite get the explanation we were hoping for, instead we’re told they ran out of time.
Watch the video below:
While this acknowledges the meme, it doesn’t clarify whether or not it would have actually worked. So the internet is free to speculate what would have happened if Ant-Man had tried to blow Thanos up.
