Captain America: Civil War, already expected to earn the distinction of being Marvel's longest movie ever, will reportedly complement that lengthiness with as many as three post-credits scenes. Directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo addressed their plans for some post-post-post action in a recent interview with Forbes, speaking in frustratingly vague terms while also successfully stoking the hype fire.
"We can’t say who is going to be in it but we can say that there certainly could be one, or two, maybe three," Joe Russo said on Wednesday. "We can confirm that you should stay sat in your seats when the movie is done." With Avengers: Infinity War set to kick off in 2018, stamina-prone audiences should surely expect a related tease. However, if the Russo brothers really do go for three post-credits scenes, the chance of Marvel managing a full-on surprise goes way up.
Infinity War, again according to the Russo brothers, will only feature a totally reasonable 67 different characters spread evenly across two films. "We have so many characters we’re dealing with," Joe Russo toldComic Book Movie in January after Anthony slipped up and used the wrong name when discussing a character. "We're breaking ground on Avengers: Infinity War. We have a board with 67 characters on it."
Captain America: Civil War, featuring the latest incarnation of Spider-Man, hits theaters on May 6.
