In the post-credit scene of Ant-Man and The Wasp, Janet van Dyne tells Scott Lang:

"Don't get sucked into a time vortex. We won't be able to save you."

Sometimes filmmakers will put in little Easter eggs like Serenity in Battlestar Galactica and I was wondering if there was anything in books, comics, etc. that would explain this.

Is there a connection to the Doctor Who and the time vortex in that universe? Or are the words "time vortex" just a coincidence?

    You're putting a lot of weight into two words here.

  • @SZCZERZOKŁY That's the Doctor from Doctor Who Weekly, no longer owned or published by Marvel now though. Aug 11, 2020 at 10:00
  • @TheLethalCarrot When dealing with Time Lord and time vortex can we seriosuly treat "no longer" and "now"? ;) Aug 11, 2020 at 10:02
  • @SZCZERZOKŁY Maybe not. Aug 11, 2020 at 10:04

There is no connection between the MCU and Doctor Who that I am aware of. Several actors have played characters in both but that is about it. The only other connection is that Doctor Who Weekly was initially published by Marvel Comics from 1979 to 1995 but not anymore.

So, no there doesn't appear to be any connection between the two and you are reading a lot into two words, especially so when the MCU loves to throw techno-babble buzzwords at things to "explain" them.

  • I didn't think so but it was a thought that had popped in my head and for some reason couldn't shake it. Thanks.
