Joss Whedon famously shot the post-credits “shawarma” scene for The Avengers was shot after the film premiered, and in general the post-credits scene has become a mainstay of the Marvel movie experience. We’ve heard that no post-credits scene had yet been shot for Age of Ultron, and assumed that it might come about as the shawarma scene did, very late in the game.
Now Whedon says there’s no Age of Ultron post-credits scene at all. There will still be something during the credits, but if you’re not the type to enjoy sitting around until after the union logos and copyright notice scroll by, you can go home early this time.
EW spoke to Whedon, who said the shawarma scene was a unique thing that can’t be replicated, and so won’t be.
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!’
So, yeah, let’s take a moment to clarify. The practice has evolved so that many Marvel films (and some movies from other studios, too) feature a credits tag that is placed right after the first major animated credits sequence at the end of the film, but before the full credit roll takes place. That will be present in Age of Ultron. But there’s no final post-credits shot or scene.
Kevin Feige said,
There will be a tag [a short, epilogue-like scene that pops up shortly after the credits start], but there’s not a post-post-credit scene.
Got it? Good.
While we’re talking about details for Age of Ultron, Feige says rumors of a Captain Marvel introduction are false. There’s talk of a minor introduction of a different character (“It’s not a big deal,” Feige says, “But it’s a good character.”) but we’ll have to wait a short while longer to learn more about that.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
