Ant-Man is one of the comic reliefs in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he still knows how to survive when the chips are down. Being able to shrink down is beneficial in many ways, but one that might escape the casual viewer has to do with mass.
An object with more mass is going to have more momentum, but if that object can shrink after being hit, it’s going to take less damage. Or something like that. After a surprise attack in “Avengers: Endgame,” Scott Lang shrinks down to survive a wave of destructive energy from Thanos’s forces.
Using the Soul Stone
The power of the Infinity Stones is never fully explained, and that's okay. We don't need everything to be laid out for us exactly – that just makes everything so boring. Surprise us! Keep the action moving, don't give us boring explanations! That also means if there aren't any hard and fast rules, there are plenty of fun things that can be done, like during the fight between Thanos and Dr. Strange.
The sorcerer has plenty of power, but when Thanos hits him with a punch from the soul stone, Strange's soul is separated from his body, indicated by a ghostly form.
He Still Remembers
The scripts of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are tightly wound around each other, often written or assisted by the same people, meaning there are plenty of details that go from one to the next. At one point in “Avengers: Infinity War,” Thanos gives a little speech about knowing what it's like to lose.
He says it “turns the legs to jelly.” He proves this to be the case in “Avengers: Endgame” when, after all the action, he loses. Immediately, he sits. Jelly legs strike. This is our favorite kind of detail. It's obvious on repeated viewings, and it isn't thrust into the viewer's faces.
Like the Very First Film
The climactic finale to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (at least, at the time) has Thanos and Iron Man meet face-to-face. It all seems to point to Thanos winning once more, but Iron Man gets the better of him. Some people have noticed that the framing of the shots is just like those of the scene where Obadiah Stane betrays Tony Stark from the very first movie in the Universe.
They aren't exact copies, but they're pretty close, and they end the same way, too – Tony Stark uses his wits to earn a victory, even if they come at a cost.
A Long Friendship
Through the trials of World War II, being frozen in ice, military brainwashing, and all the other stuff that happened between these two, the friendship of Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes survived. They'd known each other since they were kids. At the end of “Avengers: Endgame,” Captain America realizes he finally had a way to be with his beloved Peggy Carter, and Bucky knew what was happening.
The other members of the team thought that Cap was just going to take a quick trip, but he was really planning to stay a while. A long while. Bucky knew this was it.
