Have you ever sat through the credits of a Marvel movie, waiting for that post-credit scene, only to be surprised by another one? Well, you’re not alone.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is known for its post-credit scenes that tease upcoming movies or provide closure to the current one. But have any of these movies had two post-credit scenes? Let’s find out.
The First Post-Credit Scene
In most cases, Marvel movies only have one post-credit scene. This scene usually appears after all the credits have rolled and gives a glimpse into what’s coming next in the MCU. However, there are a few exceptions where Marvel has included two post-credit scenes.
The first time this happened was in “Iron Man 3,” which was released in 2013. The first post-credit scene shows Tony Stark talking to Bruce Banner about his experience fighting the Mandarin and how it affected him. However, there’s more to come.
The Second Post-Credit Scene
After the first post-credit scene ends, there’s another scene that follows it. This time we see a bunch of people working in a lab trying to revive an injured figure lying on a table. As they zoom out, we see that it’s actually the villainous Mandarin who has been captured and is being held captive.
This second post-credit scene was a surprise for fans who were already satisfied with the first one. It was revealed later that this scene was supposed to set up a potential sequel for Iron Man 3 that would feature the real Mandarin as the main villain.
Other Movies with Two Post-Credit Scenes
After “Iron Man 3,” several other Marvel movies also started including two post-credit scenes as a way to keep fans engaged and excited about what’s coming next.
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” (2017) had five post-credit scenes, two of which were mid-credits, and three were at the end of the credits. The scenes feature various characters like Kraglin and Groot, teasing their potential role in the upcoming movies.
Other movies that have had two post-credit scenes include “Ant-Man and The Wasp” (2018) and “Captain Marvel” (2019), both of which featured one scene that teased their respective sequels and another that set up a connection to “Avengers: Endgame.”
So, there you have it. Although most Marvel movies only have one post-credit scene, some have included two to tease upcoming movies or provide closure to the current movie. If you’re a fan of the MCU, it’s always worth sticking around until the very end of the credits to see if there’s anything extra waiting for you.
- Iron Man 3 was the first Marvel movie with two post-credit scenes.
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had five post-credit scenes.
- Ant-Man and The Wasp and Captain Marvel both had two post-credit scenes each.
So, next time you watch a Marvel movie, make sure to stick around until the very end!
