The Marvel Cinematic Universe has given us and continues to give us some of the best cinematic experiences. This is due to the amount of attention to detail present in these movies in order to keep the audience thinking. Often nods to sequels and other essential details are given in plain sight by some of the movies. Fans enjoy this as they give the movie multiple viewings in order to catch all these details. Another way to give nods and hints about future projects is by having post-credit scenes. Ever since the beginning of MCU, almost every movie has had post-credit scenes that provided us some important details or quite simply give us something more than the movie did. Fans often wait for the end-credit scenes more than the movie itself as it could include a massive cameo by some future hero. Let’s take a look at some of the most crucial post-credit scenes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
We are given our first glance at Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in the prisons of Hydra. This was rather important considering Wanda ends up being one of the major characters in the future of MCU. She might be responsible for the way the future of the MCU works out.
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2
This post-credits scene gave us a glance at something and it was completely left unexplored in future projects. We get to see Ayesha talking about creating “Him” and it was a clear indication towards Adam Warlock based on the speculations by fans. It was based on the idea that this being was in a cocoon-like structure which is quite similar to the origin story of Adam Warlock.
It is yet not clear what the post-credits scene from Black Widow might mean going ahead in the MCU. We see Contessa hiring Yelena Belova and sending her on a hunt for Hawkeye. She says that the latter is responsible for the death of her sister. This is something that we will definitely get to explore in a lot more detail in the upcoming Hawkeye series.
Iron Man 2
This scene gave us the tease of the God of Thunder himself. Thor featured in his solo venture movies following the events of this post-credits scene. It was made rather clear with this post-credits scene that something exciting is coming up soon in the MCU. This was a rather fun introduction to Thor without giving us many details about him.
MCU’s very first movie had the most important post-credits scene of all time. We see Nick Fury meeting up with Tony Stark at his apartment and he talks about the Avengers Initiative. This is the very first strike that led to the chain of events for the Avengers Initiative. This is the very backbone of the entire franchise.
T’Challa reveals the truth about Wakanda’s resources to the world and it is rather clear that this will have major implications in the world. This was something that was hinted at from the very starting of the movie. The clear implications that it ended up having will probably get explored in the upcoming sequel to the movie as well as the Disney Plus series World Of Wakanda.
Spider-Man: Far From Home
This has to be one of the major cliffhangers we have seen in the MCU movies. In this particular post-credits scene we see Spider-Man’s identity being revealed to the whole world by J. K. Simmons as a version of J. Jonah Jameson. He also claimed that Spider-Man is responsible for the death of Electro.
This post-credits scene gave us a look at the prime antagonist of the entirety of the Infinity Saga. Fans got to see him and it was rather unexpected considering the Avengers had just formed and the MCU was still laying its bricks. This tease kept us excited and hopeful about all that’s yet to come in this franchise.
Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings
Other than having appearances by two major characters from the MCU it also featured a hint at the future implications the events of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings might have on MCU. Wong discovers that the Ten Rings are trying to send a beacon to its original owner and this very well might indicate what we might get to witness in the next big MCU event.
This year we got to see the very first series from MCU that showed us the aftermath of Vision’s death and the implications it had on the character of Wanda. The post-credits scene in this series gives us a glance at Wanda in her Scarlet Witch form expanding her powers by learning the secrets of The Darkhold. But around the end, we hear the voices of her children which is awry considering the latter characters were mere projections she had build using her magical ability. There is a chance that this is a hint to the events of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
So these were the most crucial Post-Credits scenes of MCU so far. Which of them is your favorite? Let us know.
