Joss Whedon is just putting the finishing touches on his latest film, the blockbuster sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron. And while there are many questions waiting to be answered about this massive event movie, we're very sure about one thing - there won't be a scene at the very end of the credits.
2012s The Avenger was noted for having both a mid credit scene (where Thanos shows up and smiles in a scary fashion) and one at the very end of the credits - where the exhausted heroes are seen munching on some Shawarma in silence. That latter scene was a joke Whedon and co cooked up at the last minute, actually inserting it into prints after the official premiere as a nice surprise for those who sat through the credits.
Well now writer/director Whedon is being very clear - there will be no end credit scene in Age of Ultron. In his own words from Entertainment Weekly: "There is nothing at theveryend. 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’llkillthem!’"
Happily, this doesn't mean fans won't have anything to look forward to. Both Whedon and series producer Kevin Feige have confirmed that there will be a quick tag right after the first round of credits, which is usually a gorgeous CG animated sequence with the main cast names. We've got no idea what that scene might entail but there's lots to come in the major Marvel-verse, with wars both Civil and Infinite on the horizon, as well as the potential for cameos from Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy folks.
We can't wait to find out.
Avengers: Age of Ultron hits cinemas on the 23rd of April 2015.
