Yesterday MCU Cosmic revealed that the rumored title for Avengers 4 is Avengers: Annihilation, and now someone has discovered that we see the literal annihilation of the MCU when you sync up The Snap between Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and The Wasp.
One of the definitions of Annihilation in the dictionary is:
“the conversion of matter into energy, especially the mutual conversion of a particle and an antiparticle into electromagnetic radiation.”
A user on Reddit was watching Ant-Man and The Wasp and he discovered that after Scott Lang absorbs the Quantum Particles into the device, more orange energy orbs appear around him…right when the people outside turn to dust. Syncing up that scene with the scenes of The Snap in Avengers: Infinity War showed that when people began turning to dust, more Quantum Particles appeared in the Quantum Realm:
People have also pointed out that the energy and the color of the Soul Stone are both orange. And given the definition of “annihilation” is the conversion of matter into energy, this is a huge clue that the title for Avengers 4 is actually Annihilation. We see it happening right there on screen, if this speculation is correct.
What this means for the plot of Avengers: Annihilation isn’t known. If the dusted people are converted into energy in the Quantum Realm, is that an avenue to bring people back to life? We know the Quantum Realm is going to be a huge part of the MCU going forward, so time will tell if this has a big role in the conclusion to what happened in Avengers: Infinity War.
