Black Panther is about to hit the theaters pretty soon. And sources say the movie will have not just one but two whole post-credits scene. But the question on everyone’s mind is that – Are the Black Panther Post Credits scene be worth waiting for? Will the button scene be worth the fans’ sticking along for the extra minute in the theaters?? QuirkyByte offers a spoiler-free answer to the question on everyone’s mind right now.
Including a Post Credits scene at the end of the movie is a staple of all Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. The trend was first started by Iron Man in 208, Marvel Studios’ first superhero movie. The scene included Robert Downy Jr.’s Iron Man and Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury coming together in a single frame, thus setting the MCU’s plans in motion for the eventual coming together of the Avengers in 2012. Black Panther won’t have just one but two Post Credits scene. One will be a Mid-Credits scene while the other button scene will be included after the credits roll, in the Post-Credits slot. But are they worth sticking around for? Recently, the Post Credits scenes of the MCU movies have started becoming boring. The one in Spiderman: Homecoming was a good example. Will Black Panther change the norm??
The answer is a resounding YES!!! The two pot credits scene of the Black Panther movie won’t just be there for the heck of it. The MCU is going to build a world that is bigger and greater than the current cinematic universe of the Marvel Studios’. Just like the post-credits of Iron Man paved the way for the Avengers, the Black Panther scenes will also make way for something far greater. The post-credits scenes are important building blocks for the Marvel Cinematic Universe for what’s to come. Not only will the scenes help escalate the world to a cosmic level for the sake of Avengers: Infinity War, but also provide Easter eggs for the potential Black Panther sequel.
Marvel fans always stick around for the post-credits scene, always. The last 10 years have taught them a simple rule about the Marvel movies – there will always be more, even after the credits roll. The show ain’t over yet is the mantra of the MCU movies. But like we said, the Post Credits scenes of Marvel movies have been somewhat of a downer recently. Spiderman: Homecoming I a prime example. The post-credits scene of Spiderman: Homecoming included Captain America teaching the fans that they shouldn’t always stick around after the credits end up rolling. That was a thinly veiled attempt to mock the Marvel fans who like to sit their butts on the theater seat even after the movie ends. While fans did appreciate the subtle humor, many were disappointed by the lack of world building that the MCU post-credits scenes almost always tease and represent.
Marvel has taken a different route with the after movie button scenes. They include a Mid Credits scene that teases the world building and a post-credits scene that shows us a humorous scene to get the audience cracking. Thor: Ragnarok included a Mid-Credits scene that showed Thor and the Asgardians finally encountering Thanos’ ship, setting up the events to Infinity War. The Post Credits scene included Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster returning to Sakaar and a hilarious encounter between him and his formerly enslaved subjects.
But that won’t most certainly be the case for Black Panther. The movie is the final MCU installment before Avenger: Infinity War hits the theaters on May 4th. So don’t expect the Post credits scenes to include funny bone tickling one-liners. Both the post-credits scenes will tease extreme world building events that will have major repercussions for the MCU in the future. Both the button scenes will show the fans what direction the MCU will be heading to after phase 3. So if I were you, I would stick around until the movie ends. Will it be worth it? Most definitely!!!
