If there is one thing common to all Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, it is that you can enjoy a little something extra once the main story is over. To date, all MCU films have a sequence of average credits or post-credits, and many times, movies have both. That changes everything with Avengers: Endgame, which comes out this week.
Do not worry, there are no endgame spoilers here. To learn more about the movie, check out our review Avengers: Endgame or read some industry reviews.
Avengers: Endgame marks the 22nd film of the MCU and the first time in the world of shared film no visual sequence was set at the end, revealing the next step for Marvel. However, there may be a reason to stay because there is an audio stinger at the end, when the Marvel logo appears. The sound that hits the metal is subject to interpretation, but it has been suggested that it sounds like Tony Stark forging his first Iron Man armor. So as soon as the credits begin to roll, it's up to you to choose. You can leave the theater or stay in the credits to hear a noise that may not mean anything.
The final phase is the end of phase 3 of the MCU and, as we learned last month, these 22 films will be known as The Infinity Saga. Infinity War ended with Nick Fury contacting Captain Marvel on a pager, Ant-Man and the Wasp left Scott Lang trapped in the quantum realm, his friends having fallen to dust, and Captain Marvel told us showed Carol Danvers answering the pager's call in the present, meeting the Avengers. In addition, there were some funny moments after the credit.
Some of these sequences give the audience a clue as to what happens next. But with Endgame as the end of the 22-film journey, there's nothing left to tease before the start of Phase 4 – although Marvel's director, Kevin Feige, said that Spider-Man: Away from home, not Endgame, is technically the end of phase 3. So maybe some clues about what will happen will be delivered there, once the movie came out in July.
Mike Rougeau of GameSpot wrote in his article on Endgame: "Endgame is really a love letter addressed to the entire MCU – all of it."
