Ant-Man Was An Amazing Movie With Easter Eggs Galore.Similar Easter eggs have appeared at the end of every Marvel Cinematic movie. Sometimes they contain huge reveals that connect to future movies like Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver appearing in Captain America: The Winter Soldier or Thanos Appearing at the end of Avengers other times they serve as little love letters from Marvel to its fans and its history like Howard the Duck at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy. They're fun. They can be exciting. And if we're lucky, they offer something to help tide us over until the next big Marvel blockbuster.

Ant-Man features two extra scenes. One of them introduces the possibility of a new Marvel hero, while the other provides an answer to one of Ant-Man's big-picture questions. Here's what they are and what they mean.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR THE MOVIE AHEAD READERS BEWARE!

What happens: Hank Pym takes his daughter, Hope down to his lab, and shows her a suit with wings, an advanced prototype of the armor he and his wife, Janet, were working on. He tells Hope the suit is for her.

Why it matters: When Marvel chose to focus on the second incarnation of Ant-Man, Scott Lang, instead of Hank Pym, it did so knowing it would have to forgo huge, important chunks of Pym's storyline. Of particular note are Pym's creation of Ultron — something that haunts both Pym and Marvel's comic books to this day — and Pym's on-again, off-again relationship with the Wasp, a.k.a. Janet van Dyne.

In the comics, the Wasp was a founding member of the Avengers who gave the team its name. Pym and van Dyne's relationship defined their initial appearance, and van Dyne was written as the better half of this Avengers power couple. For large swaths of their history together, van Dyne was a voice of reason — and after they eventually divorced, she became a voice of reason and heart and soul of the Avengers.

Though she is a badass — even more badass than Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) — in the film, there is no Hope van Dyne/Hope Pym/Hank and Janet's daughter in the main Marvel comic book universe. Hope van Dyne in the comic books is a little-known supervillain living in an alternate universe. But there's no reason Marvel has to go in that direction, and it looks like the company is more interested in introducing a superheroine in the mold of the Wasp.

Post-Credit Scene: Will Ant-Man Return?

Your damn right he will. After Introducing a well know character in the marvel comic universe there was no way marvel studios was going to let this go .

What happens: Captain America and Falcon find the Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes in an undisclosed location, where he's stuck in a vise-like contraption.

"Should I call Stark?" Falcon asks.

"No," Cap replies.

"Stark Doesn't Need to Know about this"

Falcon says he knows a guy in reply, implying that helping Cap is a job for Ant-Man. (Remember: Falcon and Ant-Man met earlier when they fought at Avengers HQ.) The screen fades to black, promising an Ant-Man return.

This post-credits scene isn't as thrilling or as involved as the Wasp suit reveal. It serves as a bridge to introduce Ant-Man to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And it would have been a bigger surprise had we not already known that Paul Rudd will reprise the role of Scott Lang in 2016's Captain America: Civil War.
