: What is the meaning of duck and weave in the future?

"Duck and weave in the future" is not an English phrase. As you haven't given any context it's impossible to know what it was supposed to mean. It may be relevant that "duck" as a verb means "to lower one's head quickly to avoid smething", and "weave" can mean "zigzag from side to side", either due to illness or drunkenness, or to avoid being hit by bullets or missiles. Perhaps this refers to someone who is going to have to take evasive action either literally or figuratively. But we can't be sure without context.
