When Joe and Anthony Russo Avengers: Infinity War In 2018, it instantly inspired Marvel fans around the world to start thinking about the ways Earth’s heroes can fight back after their devastating loss to Thanos. The Internet has flooded with these ideas…but few have gained as much traction as the idea that Paul Rudd, Scott Lang’s aka Ant-Man can shrink, enter Thanos’ rectum, and then grow back to normal size or the size of a giant man. It’s called Thanos’ theory.
The blue comedy side of the idea caused it to go viral, and not only did it get responses from Paul Rudd, but Josh Brolin, the actor who plays Thanos, made some great content on social media. What we haven’t seen is that Ant-Man himself addresses the idea of crawling into Thanos’ ass… but today that’s no longer the case, as you can see by watching the video below:
I sat down to dinner at Marvel’s at Disney Wish and the first thing that happened was Ant-Man explaining why he couldn’t blow Thanos by climbing inside his ass. This is the best thing Disney has ever done, 100,000/10 pic.twitter.com/XOS1S0v6m930 June 2022
Amusement park reporter Carlye Wisel posted the video on Twitter On board the Disney Wish cruise – specifically from the Marvel restaurant on the boat. It’s apparently part of a video that plays while customers sit down to dinner, featuring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly as Ant-Man and Hope van Dyne aka The Wasp.
While the full context of the video is unclear from the less than 30-second clip, this part appears to be from the beginning, and while any graphic language is avoided, it’s pretty clear to know what he’s talking about. ant man says,
Wasp Ant-Man forbids going into details before he can explain anything else, but that’s probably the best since the video plays before people are about to eat and digest the meal.
To complement the superhero idea, it turns out that it might be impossible for Ant-Man to kill Thanos by crawling inside the Mad Titan’s anus. After the release of Avengers: Endgame (which doesn’t feature the youngest Avenger going this route), screenwriter Christopher Marcus posited that the villain could withstand the assassination attempt due to the fact that he’s strong enough to take a punch from The Hulk.
Whether or not this video is considered canon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a complex matter (James Gunn previously said that Guardians of the Galaxy Amusement park rides there is something special, so this could be from an alternate time. Regardless, it’s just too funny to be recognized this way.
