With the first “The Avengers” film, audiences were treated to a scene midway through the final credits that introduced Thanos. Then there was a post-credits scene which was essentially a joke about ‘shawarma’.
Since then people have come to expect at least one and often two credits scenes from their Marvel films. Today though, director Joss Whedon says his upcoming “Avengers: Age of Ultron” will NOT feature one after the credits – only the mid-credits stinger.
Talking about the beauty of the shawarma scene in the first film with EW, he says that moment won’t be replicated with the sequel:
“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 [of Ultron]. 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!'”
To re-iterate the point, Marvel’s Kevin Feige says: “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.”
Feige also denies rumors of a Captain Marvel introduction, but did talk about the minor introduction of a different character which he says: “It’s not a big deal, but it’s a good character.”
