Marvel is notorious for not only great films from their Marel Cinematic Universe (MCU), but also for what happens after their films. We’re talking about their post-credits scenes – you know, the ones that come after the very end of every film, the ones that keep you waiting in your seat long after the movies have ended.
In fact, ever since 2008’s “Iron Man” concluded with a surprise scene of Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury revealing to Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark that he has “become part of a bigger universe”, fans of the MCU have known to cleverly stick around to the very end for a surprise.
Welp, it appears that the makers of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” want you to know something about this film’s post-credits ending – it’s not happening. The word came from “Avengers” writer-director Joss Whedon himself because he felt that there was no way to top the post-battle shawarma scene from the last one.
He also said that they tried to come up with something worthy of the end-credits shot but ultimately couldn’t top shawarma.
It didn’t seem to lend itself in the same way, and we wanted to be true to what felt right. The first rule of making a sequel is take the best moments and do something else. Don’t do the “Indiana Jones” gun trick again differently. Just go somewhere else. Don’t try to hit the same highs, because people will sense it. We all came at it separately—we don’t want to chase that. That was a jewel and a weird little quirk.
There is nothing at the very end. And that’s not a fake-out. We want people to know so they don’t sit there for 10 minutes and then go, “Son of a bitch! I’ll kill them!”
Lulz, fair enough.
More importantly, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige added that “there will be a tag” and that will come in the form of a short, epilogue-like scene that pops up shortly after the credits start.
So, no hints whatsoever for the future Marvel films, we guess? Bummer. We’ll just have to wait until for the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” release on 23rd April (in Malaysia) to see what’s actually in store (read: epilogue-like scene) for us then!
