It wasn’t until the end of Avengers: Endgame that the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4 enigmas were finally solved by Marvel Comics character Ms. Marvel. There are numerous hints and references to the Avengers and their battle with Thanos in the sixth Marvel series to premiere on Disney+, Ms. Marvel, which follows the titular hero’s origin story.
The first-ever Avengers Con was a big deal for Kamala Khan (aka Ms. Marvel), the teen superhero because she is a huge fan of the Avengers (in particular Captain Marvel). Kamala and Bruno, her best friend from high school, attended the convention with a slew of other fans and had a blast. As a follow-up to Phase 4’s Avengers: Endgame, Ms. Marvel has already answered one of the most pressing questions about the future.
Everything that transpired in the film is now known to Kamala and everyone else in the series. Why wouldn’t everyone recognize the events if they weren’t present? Only the original Avengers and all of their allies who fought side by side to defeat Thanos had access to this information in the past. Even if the general public was aware of some of the superheroes’ exploits, most people were unaware of the vast majority.
To her credit, Kamala, her friends, and the rest of the world were all aware of what happened in Avengers: Endgame, including the fact that Iron Man and Black Widow gave their lives to save the day. We now know that Ant-Man himself Scott Lang has been talking about the events of the past week on a number of different podcasts.
It was Ant-Man who suggested to the Avengers that they travel back in time to collect the Infinity Stones in Endgame. As a means of keeping the populace informed, he would have shared the details of what had happened to the majority of the population. No one knows how much of the Avengers’ collective knowledge Ant-Man is dispersing to the public (or how many podcast interviews he’s given), but at least now the world knows what the Avengers were able to accomplish.
When Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania fans catch up with Scott Lang, it’s possible that these podcast interviews will be shown to them. To tie in with Ms. Marvel, it might be fun to see a superhero montage in which he talks about his knowledge of events. This could be a factor in the Avengers’ rise to prominence, as Ant-Man’s podcast interviews have made them more popular and merchandise-friendly than ever before.
Their heroics in Avengers: Endgame has elevated them to even greater fame than they were prior to their appearance in The Avengers. It’s impressive that the MCU’s popularity for superheroes is on par with their off-screen fame.
Overall, Ms. Marvel’s explanation that Ant-Man is to blame for the public’s knowledge of the battle against Thanos helps to clarify the post-Endgame world, especially as it expands beyond the Avengers. Even after Avengers: Endgame, the MCU will continue to reveal new information and solve mysteries. There will always be a record of that fateful mission if superheroes like Ant-Man are still around to ensure that it is properly documented.
