As a Marvel fan, there is one thing that everyone knows: You sit through the credits. Over the years, it has become an unwritten rule that you stay until the credits end, and there''s a high chance that everybody around you is judging you for doing so. Go and see a Marvel film without sitting through the credits? Yes, that''s not how we do it here.
Marvel Studios has continued to use a teaser or two at the end of their projects, giving fans a glimpse into what''s going to come. From Iron Manto to the first glimpse of Thanos (Josh Brolin) in the first credit scene, this is one franchise that knows how to keep their fans hooked.
"I''m Here To Talk To You About The Avengers Initiative," says a ''Iron Man.
Ten words. The ten words that inspired this incredible journey fifteen years ago. The end credits scene that started it all. It paved the way for the remarkable journey that millions of people love today.
"I am Iron Man," Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) took an uninvited tour from the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to the world that Marvel Studios has erupted.
''''The Avengers'''' The Mad Titan!
"There was an idea. To bring together a group of fantastic people," said the author. The Avengers Initiative consisted of a group of people with abilities and abilities that could protect the planet from potential high-level threats.
The Titan, Thanos, was initially praised by Marvel''s uncredited Damion Poitier, who was once considered the big bad from the start. While only a glimpse, the menacing smile of his instilled fear and instilled hope into fans, eager to follow their directions.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier ''The Maximoff Twins''
Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) and Pietro Maximoff (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) were the first actors to be depicted as villains, working with Ultron to take revenge on Tony Stark for his involvement in their trappings and their parents'' deaths.
Before the twins'' abilities were explored in Avengers: Age of Ultron, we had a little snippet at the end of Captain America''s second solo film. This scene was the first time we saw the twins, and this short but disturbing moment certainly raised expectations.
''''Guardians of the Galaxy'''' Dancing Groot
Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) had already won the hearts of millions of people during Guardians of the Galaxy, but this Marvel film''s end credits scene gave fans an additional serotonin boost.
Groot was an instant favorite, but you couldn''t help but notice this adorable and big-hearted character as a baby. Who wouldn''t know that what we had to expect in the MCU was a baby tree dancing to the Jacksons'' "I Want You Back"?
"Fine, I''ll Do It Myself," says Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The second look of Thanos (Brolin) came in a mid-credits scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron. It was a much better look than the first one three years ago. Alongside getting a better look at Josh Brolin as Thanos, Marvel also revealed the MCU''s first clip of the infinity gauntlet.
Despite locking at least three or four vault-type locks, he opens the door with his hand, closing his fist, frighteningly dispeling those five words that stuttered havoc on the audience''s spines.
Welcome To Wakanda, the ''Captain America: Civil War''
Were you Team Cap or Team Iron Man? Captain America: Civil War was a different twist on the Avengers films, because the entire team was divided in two and was pitted against each other, supported either by Steve or Tony.
Bucky (Sebastian Stan) prepares to go under while they devise a strategy to remove his Winter Soldier trigger words. Steve thankes T''Challa (Chadwick Boseman) but warns him that people will come if Bucky discovers him. T''Challa says, "let them try," posing a camera around to see a panther statue. Wakanda Forever!
A New Spidey Adventure for Captain America: Civil War
While the credits roll, Marvel Studios will have more than one scene play, and Captain America: Civil War was one of those movies. While the first of the two teased a new story with Black Panther, the second one cleared the way for another to follow.
Tony invited Spider-Man (Tom Holland) to join his team against Cap (Chris Evans), resulting in the web-slinger''s highly anticipated debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Being on the brink of a brand new Spidey adventure was very exciting. Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man was soon to be back in action!
A Familiar Face Returns ''Spider-Man: Far From Home''
Whether you grew up with Sam Raimi''s Spider-Man series or became a fan later in life, your jaw became apparent with a thud when a grumpy but evidently affectionate news reporter walked up at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home.
J.K. Simmons''s stunning performance as J. Jonah Jameson in Tom Holland''s second solo film as our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man was a massive nostalgia kick, which was the first of many possible cameos and crossovers between the two.
"Venom: Let There Be Carnage" "That...Guy" "Venom: Let There Be Carnage" "Venom: Let There Be Carnage" "That...Guy"
While it isn''t an MCU film, Venom: Let There Be Carnage has created so many possibilities for tie-ins with future MCU Spider-Man projects. People were averse to the idea that Tom Hardy''s Venom might possibly appear in the MCU, but nothing was yet confirmed.
Venom will officially join Spider-Man: No Way Home during the end of the MCU, according to Doctor Strange. This confirms a possible partnership with Tom Holland''s Peter Parker, and that''s an offer some fans have wanted for a while.
Spider Worlds Collide in ''Spider-Man: No Way Home''
While Spider-Man: No Way Home was a fantastic film, some people were a little disappointed when it finally ended without Tom Hardy''s Venom.
Hardy''s Venom would have been super cool to play with Holland''s Spider-Man, but it was still fun to see him appear in the roles. Having Venom disappear when Strange cast the new spell seemed like an empty tease of what might''ve been. As he returned to his universe, a little bit of the Symbiote was left behind, leaving the possibility for future Venom/Spidey projects.
