During an interview with Forbes, ‘Captain America: Civil War’ directors Joe and Anthony Russo confirmed that the film will be getting a post-credits scene… as if we had any doubts.
“We can’t say who is going to be in it but we can say that there certainly could be one, or two, maybe three,” said Joe Russo. “We can confirm that you should stay sat in your seats when the movie is done.”
Of course, that’s not exactly mind-blowing news – after all, every film in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe has included at least one post-credits scene. And the ‘Captain America’ films are no exception.
Captain America: The First Avenger
The original ‘Captain America’ movie featured on of Samuel L. Jackson’s numerous appearances as Nick Fury – Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Steve Rogers is hanging out at a gym in New York City when he is approached by Fury… and he has an important message.
“You think you’re the only hero in the world?” he asks, foreshadowing the coming together of The Avengers. And as we now know, Captain America was more than capable of helping to form the iconic superhero group.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
This time around, ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ features two extra scenes at the end of the movie – the first of which introduced not-mutants, Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch.
This would be the first time we saw the Sokovian ‘miracles’ on the big screen… and with Baron Von Strucker holding their leash, it introduced us to one of the lesser villains of the Avengers movie, ‘Age of Ultron’.
The second post-credits scene gave us a brief glimpse at The Winter Soldier as he found out more about his own past. Brainwashed by the Russians and given a secret identity, Captain Bucky Barnes was turned against his own country, even his own friends.
And this poignant glimpse of Bucky looking into his own past may even foreshadow the events of ‘Civil War’ to some extent… given how the character is seen in the trailers.
But what will the ‘Civil War’ post-credits scenes include?
There’s already been some speculation that we may get our first glimpse at Doctor Strange… and that would certainly be an excellent way to build buzz for Benedict Cumberbatch’s first outing as Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme.
But for now, we’ll have to wait and see.
‘Captain America: Civil War’ heads to cinemas on 29 April 2016.
