Ant-Man could have gone inside Thanos and immediately killed him by cardiac arrest.

Why didn’t the Avengers consider this plan in Avengers: Endgame? The plan looks incredible simple instead of all this drama.

    What would that solve? The issue was to undo the snap not kill Thanos, he wasn't even supposed to be there. – Paulie_D Apr 26 '19 at 15:22
  • Of course it will solve the problem, once Thanos is dead in the past anyone from the avengers could have undo the snap – sij Apr 26 '19 at 15:34

    No, they've already established they can't change the past only the present – Paulie_D Apr 26 '19 at 15:52
  • You misunderstood when I said past it’s actually present. – sij Apr 26 '19 at 17:22

Ant-Man never needed to fight Thanos and in fact he was more useful to get the mini quantum tunnel in the van working again per their plan. He wasn't involved in the majority of the fight really and certainly not with any means of fighting Thanos.

It likely wouldn't have worked. Dr. Strange had foreseen over 14 million possible outcomes of the battle and the only one that ended with an Avengers victory was the one we saw. Granted, Strange wasn't giving out any hints as to what the winning strategy was or wasn't until the very last moment but I think it's safe to say that if Ant-Man had attempted anything that wasn't part of the winning strategy, Strange would have stepped in to stop him.

  • These are just scripts I finally understand that they can fudge up any story they like – sij May 3 '19 at 15:54

    Obviously, the real answer to any plot-related question is "because that's how the writers wanted to write it". However, it's generally assumed that these questions are looking for in-universe explanations for why things happen a certain way, which is what my answer is. If you want to know why the writers chose this particular option instead of something else, you need to specifically mention that in your question. – aleppke May 3 '19 at 18:16
