The Marvel Cinematic Universe came to the end of the Infinity Saga with Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. As those record-breaking blockbusters arrived in theaters, there were countless theories about how the heroes might defeat Josh Brolin’s villainous Thanos. And now some hilarious Marvel fan art has imagined the infamous Ant-Man theory involving Thanos’ butt.
Prior to the fall of the Mad Titan, some Marvel fans thought that Ant-Man might be able to defeat Thanos by himself during Avengers: Endgame. Namely by entering an orifice like his butt or ears, and then expanding and ripping apart the villain. And with the multiverse becoming increasingly present throughout Phase Four, hilarious fan art involving Ant-Man and Thanos’ butt have arrived online. Check it out below,
And now we’ll never unsee this. Ant-Man saved the world in Avengers: Endgame, helping to conceive of the Time Heist after being released from the Quantum Realm. But he never met Thanos in combat… and certainly did go with the booty approach in battle.
The above image comes to us from Twitter, and quickly went viral. The fan poster uses the new Disney+ series What If…? as the entry point (lol), and hilariously brings the Ant-Man/ Thanos theory back to the MCU discourse. We’ll just have to see if this particular story findd its way to small screens for Season 2.

The theories and memes about Ant-Man and Thanos began when Paul Rudd’s superhero was noticeably missing in Avengers: Infinity War. Fans were eager to see how Scott Lang would factor into the story, joking about how he could have been the key to defeating the Mad Titan all along. Although like Thor, he wouldn’t be aiming for the head.
In the end, Ant-Man did have a major role to play in Avengers: Endgame. He came up with the Time Heist, while also providing the much-needed Pym Particles. He also single-handedly saved War Machine, Hulk, and Rocket ahead of the epic final battle. Unfortunately, Scott never actually fought Thanos in the theatrical cut.
It should be interesting to see how Paul Rudd’s character is used in the MCU moving forward. The upcoming threequel Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is gearing up to begin filming, including a new actress as Cassie Lang. And following the events of Loki, Jonathan Majors will also be portraying Kang the Conqueror. That villain has been teased as an overarching nemesis for the shared universe, so the stakes were high.
The next installment in the MCU is Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on September 3rd. In the meantime, check out the 2021 movie release dates to plan your next movie experience.
