Paul Rudd, who plays the superhero Ant-Man in Marvel movies, has finally addressed the fan theory saying his character could shrink to enter Thanos' butt and then expand to finally kill the villain.

The 53-year-old actor gave his reaction to the rather wild theory when he appeared in a clip featured on the Disney Wish cruise ship. "I've heard a lot of chatter out there asking why I didn't shrink down, go in, and uh … kill Thanos in a really creative way," he said in the video, which was shared by a Twitter user Thursday.

"First of all: gross. Secondly, it's much more complicated than that. Allow me to explain," Rudd said further.

However, before he could give his explanation, his co-star Evangeline Lilly stepped in and said, "If only we had the time!"

His response to the theory caught a lot of fans' attention, and many of them didn't miss the opportunity to share their thoughts on social media.

Responding to the video, a fan tweeted a screenshot from the TV series "The Boys," where a superhero does something similar to another character. In the caption, they wrote, "Meanwhile The Boys..."

Another person alluded to said show in their comment, noting, "The boys has conditioned me to imagine scenarios like this. Scott would've been crushed and squeezed out of Thanos' ass like play-doh."

"The Boys" follows a bunch of superheroes abusing their abilities. It's a contrast to what Marvel is known for, which is highlighting superheroes who use their superpowers to make the world a better place.

Rudd will be seen next in "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania," which is coming out on Feb. 17, 2023. A couple of months ago, Samuel L. Jackson revealed that he will also appear in the highly anticipated movie.

Besides the new "Ant-Man" film, Marvel is also dropping "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3" and "The Marvels" next year.

While awaiting these titles' release, fans will be treated to "Thor: Love and Thunder" and "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever," which are set to premiere on July 8 and Nov. 11, 2022, respectively.
