Does ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?
Thursday, 25 April 2019 With the long-awaited “Avengers: Endgame’ finally hitting theaters, fans will finally get to see how the remaining Avengers come together and assemble to fight Thanos and undo the terrible snap from “Avengers: Infinity War” that killed half of all life in the universe.
It’s a big moment for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the culmination of the first 11 years of movies and the ending of a plot that began way back in the first “Avengers” movie back in 2012. But the MCU will go on after this, first with “Spider-Man: Far From Home” this July and then with two more films next year and on and on. So after “Endgame” finally ends, one of the biggest questions for fans will be, simply, “What’s next?”
It’s a tradition for MCU films to include some kind of bonus scene during and/or after the credits to tease what’s coming or at least to punctuate whatever just happened somehow. Every single entry in the franchise has had something along those lines, an incentive to wait through the credits for something extra.

So does “Avengers: Endgame” follow in that tradition and provide us with a tease for what’s next in this whole crazy thing?
The answer is *no, “Avengers: Endgame” does not include any kind of stinger, either of the mid-credits or post-credits variety. *If you need to bail for the bathroom after the film’s lengthy running time or just need to get out of there, you can do so knowing that you aren’t going to miss any new content.
There is, however, a sort of small Easter egg for fans who do stay to the end of the credits. As the scroll reaches its conclusion you’ll be able to hear the sound of a hammer banging on metal. This is a nod back to the original “Iron Man” movie — it’s the sound of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) forging his original suit of armor while being held captive in the very first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With more than 50 reviews in, The Russo Brothers fourth Marvel blockbuster has a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. In his review for TheWrap, Alonso Duralde writes that ” ‘Avengers: Endgame’ has almost nothing on its mind but crossing the Ts and dotting the Is of a far-flung superhero saga, but to anyone with even a minor emotional stake in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it has all the fleeting satisfaction of a shot of whipped cream delivered directly from the spray can. And that’s not a bad thing.”
