The third and final film of 2023 for Marvel Studios is now playing in theaters worldwide, but is it more self-contained or does it tease something exciting for the future of the MCU? Coming in with a runtime of only one hour and 45 minutes, is it possible that a The Marvels post credits scene does the heavy lifting in the world-building category?
The lack of connective tissue has been a common complaint in the post-Endgame era of the MCU. With many Marvel movies feeling more independent, fans are clamoring for a classic Marvel post credits scene teasing something exciting that pays off sooner rather than later. Does The Marvels deliver an exciting stinger worth sticking around for, or are you clear to level as soon as the credits roll?
Does ‘The Marvels’ Have a Post Credits Scene?
Yes, there is a surprise waiting about halfway through the credits you will most definitely want to hang around for. Marvel movies often have two end-credits sequences, one being a serious tease for an upcoming project and another serving as a fun Easter egg. The Marvels sticks to the former, offering something to be very excited about for the future of the MCU.
With upcoming projects like Deadpool 3 and Captain America: Brave New World built around established and beloved characters, Marvel should begin to win back some general audience favor. The recent news of a Daredevil: Born Again reboot paired with Blade as an R-rated project proves Kevin Feige and co. are willing to break out of their standard mold to give people what they want.
‘The Marvels’ Only Has One Post Credits Scene, Not Two
Although it’s been something of a down year for Marvel with poor reception of projects like Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Secret Invasion, they have a chance to close out the year strong with The Marvels. The film currently sits at 61% on Rotten Tomatoes, but its always smart to see the movie for yourself and form your own opinion.
