Early in the film, we see Thomas Harewood drop the said ring into a glass of water which reacts violenty and creates a massive explosion.

What made the ring into a bomb?

This post on reddit includes a suggestion:

...it was a TINY amount of antimatter suspended in a TINY magnetic field in the ring. When the ring dissolved in the water, the containment failed and the small amount of antimatter reacted with the water/ring remains/etc.

Is there any evidence to support this?

  • The same reddit also posited that the ring might have been made of a fictional reactive metal. I can't recall anything in the interviews that confirmed or denied either theory. – Valorum Jul 16 '16 at 19:22
