One thing film critics who have already seen Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” have complained about is the lack of a post-credits scene. There’s a good reason for this though, it’s still being finalised.
James Gunn tells Total Film that the scene has been shot just recently and will first be seen with the film’s release next Friday on August 1st. Gunn confirms he directed the scene himself and it won’t “setup” the next film, but will add a ‘new element’ to the Marvel Cinematic Universe:
“Oh we have a post-credit sequence for you! Oh, do we ever! Yes, well we are connected, first of all we are connected… because of certain characters… but we have a post-credit sequence that’s all our own! That in all honestly we have just been doing the past few days so I think it’s going to be a great deal of fun for people. You don’t even want to know what it is! Pure joy, pure joy, that’s two words!”
