A major Avengers fan theory was debunked at the on-going San Diego Comic-Con International festival, when writers of Avengers: Endgame revealed that Ant-Man's survival after the event of Thanos' snap at the end of Avengers: Infinity War was mere stroke of luck as the quantum realm didn't do anything to increase his odds of survival.
Many, till now, have believed that Ant-Man aka Scott Lang, portrayed by Paul Rudd, survived Thanos' snap because he was trapped in the quantum realm at the time of the event, as is revealed in Ant-Man and The Wasp's post credit scene. However, the writers claimed that it is mere chance that Ant-Man survived "because the Stones do not differentiate between realms," they said.
Responding to a question, Endgame writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely addressed Ant-Man's survival during a panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego 2019. "I think [Ant-Man] was coin-flip lucky, because the Stones do not differentiate between realms," he said (via cbr.com).
