The 13 Best Movie Post-Credits Scenes


The news came down this week, straight from the mouths of Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and director Joss Whedon: there will be no post-credits scenes at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Sure, there will still be a mid-credits teaser, but it just won’t be the same. Marvel Studios have been using post-credits scenes to tease future films and expand on the worlds of their movies since the very beginning, at the end of Iron Man in 2008.

While we still encourage audiences to watch all the credits anyway, if only as a gesture of respect to the hundreds if not thousands of artisans who help make every movie possible, the news is still probably going to disappoint many Marvel fans, some of whom will wait around for one reason only, and then leave the theater feeling pissed off. But they shouldn’t be. It’s not like Marvel Studios promised us post-credits scenes until the end of time. And besides there are plenty of great post-credits scenes from throughout movie history to keep us company until they make a rollicking return to the MCU.
