Sebastian Stan almost slipped an Avengers 4 details when he confirmed that a few characters will have their deaths reversed in the film.
While appearing at the ACE Comic Con in April, he revealed that he Filene a scene for Avengers movie with “everybody in it”, including Hank Pym, Nick Fury and Janet Van Dyne.
Ant-Man & The Wasp saw the deaths of Hank and Janet as a result of Thanos’ snap that wiped out half the universe, while Scott Lang was still trapped inside the Quantum Realm.
Just before the release of Infinity War, Stan gave off a slip with an assist from Winston Duke and Anthony Mackie.
“I don’t think I revealed anything crazy. Like, everyone’s gonna be in this movie.”
“Nobody crazy, that I mentioned, would not be in this film,” Stan added. “Michael Douglas could come in and pour a tea for one scene, for all you know.”
Stan confirmed that Douglas was also in the film.
“He is in the movie. At least the movie I was in,” he said. “It might not be in this movie, but it might be in the other one.”
Fans on Reddit pointed out that Stan accidentally confirmed that other dusted characters will also return in Avengers 4. Later, Douglas even revealed over “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” that Quantum Realm is the key to Avengers 4.
“The Quantum Realm plays an important part in all the next chapters, I think, of the Marvel films,”
“There are things that you see back there that [Ant-Man and the Wasp director] Peyton [Reed] has put in there,” Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige divulged during an Ant-Man and the Wasp press conference in July. “Where and how they pay off in the near term and the long term remains to be seen.”
A merchandise leak also seemed to have confirmed the journey into the Quantum Realm. This surfaced in October, featuring Thor, Rocket Raccoon and Captain America suited up in the same gear as worn by Pym when he ventured into the Quantum Realm looking for his wife.
