Marvel has conditioned fans to stay after the ending credits roll for special surprise scenes since 2008’s Iron Man. But not this time say Avengers: Age of Ultron creators.
“There is nothing at the very end. And that’s not a fake-out,” writer and director Joss Whedon says. “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!’”
But why not?
It's because they can't top the post-credit shawarma scene from the last one.
“We all came at it separately—we don’t want to chase that,” Whedon says. “That was a jewel and a weird little quirk." She adds, “The first rule of making a sequel is take the best moments and do something else. Don’t do the Indiana Jones gun trick again differently. Just go somewhere else. Don’t try to hit the same highs, because people will sense it.”
“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!’”
However, fans wanting more after the movie is over won't be too disappointed. “There will be a tag,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says. “But there’s not a post-post-credit scene.”
Fans may be in for another let down. Rumors of Captain Marvel getting an introduction in the movie are just that. She will not make an appearance, Feige says.
Avengers: Age of Ultron hits the big screen May 1.
