“Avengers: Endgame” Non-Spoiler: First of Marvel’s 23 Movies to Not Have Post-Credits Scene


Here’s a non spoiler for Marvel fans chomping at the bit for “Avengers: Endgame.”

I may be wrong, but this is the first Marvel movie with no post- credits scene.

At the press screening yesterday, everyone waited faithfully through the long end credits for some kind of sign of life Marvel. Usually there’d be a funny or mysterious scene indicating something in the future.

We waited and waited through Alan Silvestri’s score. And then, nada. Nothing. Just the Marvel logo.

Some people claimed to hear an audio snippet, like a clanging. But it was pretty clear from Marvel. This was the end.

Is it the end, though? There are “Spider Man” movies coming. And Scarlett Johansson might get her own movie, although it seems doubtful. There’s certainly going to be two sequels to “Black Panther” and “Captain Marvel.” Also, one Avenger gets a promotion at the end of “Endgame” that could lead to movies for him/her (not saying gender so as not to spoil it).

But for now, it’s dead silence. End of an era.
