The newest – and largest – Marvel film is now in theaters and has already established itself as a significant release. Avengers: Endgame not only broke box office records, but Marvel's 22nd film Cinematic Universe is preparing to shut down everything on the MCU to this day. Although Spider-Man: Far From Home is technically the end of Phase 3, Endgame marks the culmination of many stories. But the film sets itself apart from the old MCU films not only for its long runtime of three hours, but also for its approach to credit. All MCU films, including Iron Man in 2008, had a credit and / or post-credit sequence. It has become a tradition for viewers to stick around and anticipate what they might expect. With Endgame, however, there is not a scene attached to the end of the credits – but there is a brief audio stinger waiting for you.
Do not worry, there are no endgame spoilers here, but there is a description for the audio stinger below. For more on the film, check out our review of Avengers: Endgame or Easter Egg Compilation.
Avengers: Endgame marks the 22nd movie on the MCU and the first time in the universe of shared movies that will not have a visual sequence at the end, causing what comes next for Marvel (or making some kind of joke). However, there are two things that stubborn fans may want to see – or hear – for themselves. Most importantly, there is an audio stinger at the end of the credits when the Marvel logo appears. The sound of metal hitting metal is open to interpretation, but it has been suggested that it sounds like Tony Stark forging his first Iron Man armor.
As the credits begin to roll, the choice is yours. You can either leave the theater or get the credits to hear a noise that may or may not mean anything to Phase 4. Another noteworthy thing comes early in the credits, as each of the original Avengers gets a brief moment under the Searchlights. where his signature is drawn on the screen as the theme of the Avengers. It's a good time, but again, it's not the kind of credit sequence we're used to seeing from Marvel. Infinity War, for example, concluded with the entry of Captain Marvel, paving the way for its stand-alone film and its subsequent appearance in Endgame.
Endgame is effectively the end of Stage 3 of the MCU, and as we learned last month, these movies will be known as The Infinity Saga. In terms of average credits and post-credit sequences, Infinity War ended with Nick L. Fury of Samuel L. Jackson in contact with Captain Marvel on a pager, Ant-Man and Wasp left Scott Lang of Paul Rudd trapped in Quantum Realm with her friends burst into dust, and Captain Marvel showed us Brie Larson's Carol Danvers, attending the pager's call in the present, meeting the Avengers. In addition, there have also been some post-credit comedic moments.
Some of these sequences give the audience a hint about what comes next on the MCU. But with Endgame being the end of the 22-movie journey, there's nothing to provoke before Phase 4 begins – although Marvel boss Kevin Feige has clarified that Spider-Man: Away from Home, Not the End of Game, it's technically the end of Phase 3 So maybe some clue as to what's to come will be delivered there once the movie is released in July. Whatever happens at Endgame, and when Far From Home is done, we know the movie will feature both Nick Fury and Tom Holland's Peter Parker along with a variety of characters coming back from Homecoming. We know that Mysterio will appear in this movie, but in terms of what the next great Marvel villain is post-Thanos, we have some ideas.
In Endgame's analysis, GameSpot's Mike Rougeau wrote, "Endgame is truly a love letter for the entire MCU – the whole thing. It's confusing and confusing, and there will be a lot of discussion about whether the ending even makes sense – this basically breaks the rules laid out throughout the film that leads to it. But hell, it's an emotional and rewarding ride. I have no doubt that we'll spend the next weeks choosing and separating until we're done. "He analyzed every conceivable aspect. But now, at the end of the game, the Avengers Endgame looks like a win. "
