Don't stick around for a post-credit scene for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

AVENGERS-SHAWARMANo need to stick around through all of the credits for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ so folks (like me) won’t have to worry about missing this year’s shawrma, Bucky at the museum or Howard the Duck.

Avengers Age of Ultron - Scarlett Johansson and Joss WhedonIn an interview with EW, Director Joss Whedon confirmed there won’t be any special shawarma scene after the credits.

“We all came at it separately—we don’t want to chase that,” Whedon says. “That was a jewel and a weird little quirk. It didn’t seem to lend itself in the same way, and we wanted to be true to what felt right. The first rule of making a sequel is take the best moments and do something else. Don’t do the Indiana Jones gun trick again differently. Just go somewhere else. Don’t try to hit the same highs, because people will sense it.”

“There is nothing at the very end. 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 b#$%! I’ll kill them!’”

Thanos-AvengersDon’t worry though as there will be a teaser after the first set of credits a la the big reveal of Thanos in ‘The Avengers’ revealed Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.

“There will be a tag. That is, there will be a short, epilogue-like scene that pops up shortly after the credits start. But there’s not a post-post-credit scene.”

    This is no big deal to me, even though the now infamous Shawarma scene was funny and the Bucky scene at the Smithsonian museum was pretty cool, I can do with or without the after credits scene. Now if they would have said there would be no mid credits scenes after AOU I would have been bummed out about that because those are the scenes that always carry REAL weight and gives a little glimpse into what to look forward to in the future. I’m thinking the mid credits scene will involve Black Panther and possibly Doctor Strange and Spider-Man.

  • Me neither. I actually missed those scenes in theaters as I didn’t think there was a second post-credit scene.

    Spider-Man or Black Panther would be cool to see in the post-credit version. Almost time…..!

  • “Don’t do the Indiana Jones gun trick again differently.”

    Probably the funniest scene in TEMPLE OF DOOM was when they re-did that scene, only for Indy to realize he wasn’t carrying a gun at the time, so…not your best example, Joss.

    Good point. He’s always referencing 80s stuff like Indy and Empire Strikes Back. Wonder if I’d be like that if I was a director?
