Kevin Feige Clarifies The 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' Credits Scene

Avengers: Age of Ultron exploded on the movie world this weekend and, after it was over, much of the talk was likely about the credits scene. We won't spoil it above the jump but, suffice to say, it's a big tease to what Phase Three has to hold. It does raise more questions than it answers, though, and we asked Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige about it. He clarified one of the biggest questions held within the scene and then offered an interesting tidbit about it too. Read about the Age of Ultron credit scene below, but beware of spoilers.

At the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, we see Thanos grab the Infinity Gauntlet and say that he's going to have to take care of things himself. Much like the character's appearance at the end of The Avengers, this was a tease of the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

However, where the heck is Thanos? Wasn't that Gauntlet in Odin's vault the last time we saw it?

We asked Feige about this.

Where is the Infinity Gauntlet when we see it in the credits? Wasn't it in Odin's Vault?Feige: Ah, well, I won't tell you too much but he is not grabbing it from Odin's Vault. That is not [Odin's Vault].So wherever that is has been thought out, is specific and will be answered?Yes.

Classic Feige, give an answer but provide more questions. Could this moment actually be a time jump into the future? Will we see Thanos steal the gauntlet in Thor: Ragnarok or Guardians of the Galaxy 2? That we don't know.

Speaking of Thanos, Feige offered up this story too:

I'll tell you something funny, which is great, working on all these movies and going from 'What's Ant-Man, is Ant-Man gonna work?' Cut to a year ago it was Guardians, 'What's Guardians again, hows that going to connect?' In some of the early screenings of Age of Ultron, when you see Thanos as the end of course, some of the comments we got back were great. Which was, 'Oh I love seeing that guy from Guardians at the end.' And 'I love the connection with Guardians' I was like, of course, more people know him from that . He did one turn of his head in The Avengers and he has a scene in Guardians. And I love that. I love that Guardians now has its place amongst the pantheon.
