Reminder: Don’t Bother Sitting Through All the Avengers Credits

1 minute read

A friendly reminder to all the fans who will stream in to see Avengers: Age of Ultron for its opening weekend: don’t sit through the credits waiting for a surprise scene at the end.

Marvel audiences have gotten used to the surprise extra scenes after the credits since 2008’s Iron Man. They’ll still get a little something this time, but not the true post-credits scene: Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told Entertainment Weekly that there will be a “tag,” an epilogue-like scene that occurs right after the credits start.

Writer and director Joss Whedon told EW that really, they’re not kidding about the lack of a post-credits scene. “That’s not a fake-out,” he said. “We want people to know so they don’t sit there for 10 minutes and then go: ‘Son of a b—h! I’ll kill them!’”

Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1.
