Physicist Talks About The ‘Quantum Realm’ In ‘Avengers: Endgame’




  • Physicist analyzes the science behind Quantum Realm in “Avengers: Endgame”
  • Raphaël Lebrun says the idea of the Quantum Realm in the movie is impossible.
  • He did say there’s one accurate reference to quantum physics in the film.

With our favorite Avengers looking for a way to undo Thanos’ snap in “Avengers: Endgame,” the mysterious Quantum Realm, first introduced to the MCU in “Ant-Man,” and its time vortexes was their best bet. But what is the Quantum Realm?

We know that none of the characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are real, including most of the concepts in the film. But it would be interesting to know how theoretically plausible the “quantum realm” is.

Raphaël Lebrun, a quantum physics doctoral researcher at the University of Sussex, said:

I’m sorry to say this, but atoms experience time the same way as we do, so I don’t think there is quite a way to navigate yourself back in the past… There’s a lot of exciting bullsh*t, but I think it’s good because it’s attracting a lot of interest into what quantum physics is and it has been picked up a lot in the news.”

So, there you have it, folks. The quantum realm may be cool and all, but it’s totally impossible to happen in the real world. Just like all of these Marvel characters, the quantum realm is just too good to be true.

While Mr. Lebrun made it clear that the quantum realm in the film is just a made-up thing, he did say that there’s one accurate reference to quantum physics in “Avengers: Endgame.”

He said:

“I think the only thing that is really truly accurate is probably when Tony Stark is building the time machine. He starts making calculations and finds that in theory, it is not possible, but that in practice it is, which is very odd – usually, you find that the theory is possible but in practice, it is very hard to make.”
