Next Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp It was a lighthearted affair that ended in a tragic but important setup of how the Avengers would save the universe from Thanos (Josh Brolin) and reverse his snap, which caused The Blip. The biggest clue in the movie was that Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) ventured into the quantum realm and found his wife, Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer).

In the 2015 movie, Ant Man, It was revealed that during a mission, Janet was forced to shrink between molecules to stop a ballistic missile. While its action saved lives, it also caused it to be lost for decades. Hank spent years believing she was dead while silently waiting for a chance to bring her back. Thanks to Scott Lang’s (Paul Rudd) accidental adventure in the Quantum Realm, it sparked hope in Hank that Janet might still be alive. That hope would carry on in the sequel, where Hank Pym was able to find his long-lost wife. A deleted scene helped explain one of the many ways Janet was able to survive for so many decades.
When Janet was lost in the Quantum Realm, she was left with only her outfit and her genius intellect. By the time Hank was finally able to reconnect with her, she had become a survivor in the Kingdom. He wore a cape, the mouthpiece of his wasp mask, and a staff made from his wings. However, when Hank and Janet traversed the Quantum Realm in the “Worlds Upon Worlds” scene, there was another device that helped her survive for several years.
At the scene, Janet explained to Hank how much vaster the Quantum Realm was than they had previously thought. As they walked, they were interrupted by a menacing and strange looking creature. When Hank got defensive, Janet pulled out a device and spoke for him, saying, “Come on in, we don’t make any claims.” The creature responded quickly saying “Go in peace” and gave them a safe step, much to Hank’s surprise.
While there were many civilizations within the Quantum Realm, there was also a social structure. Janet, who requests a safe passage, gives an idea of their society. He also showed his innovation and ingenuity while living in a foreign land. He was able to use the technology used in the helmet to talk to other creatures; crucial communication that prolonged their survival.
Even though she gained abilities that cured Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) from her endless pain due to her powers, it was Janet’s mind that last helped her in the microscopic realm until her husband found her. The deleted scene from “Worlds Upon Worlds” showed that there are still many aspects of the Quantum Realm that have yet to be discovered.
