Marvel Post-Credit Scenes
Here's one vote for ending this annoying practice.
As has become the custom, Marvel’s Black Panther movie featured not one but two post-credit scenes. There’s a brief one very shortly into the credits and then another, more significant set-up for the next MCU movie, at the end.
This was sort of cute the first couple go-rounds. Who can forget Samuel L. Jackson announcing the Avenger Initiative?
But it’s moved beyond stale to more than a bit annoying. The movie runs 2 hours, 15 minutes. That’s after at least 15 minutes of previews, probably more like 20. Why torture the paying customers for another 10 minutes or so watching lists of the thousands of people and entities who worked on the flick? It would be as if book publishers forced us to read the index before we could read the epilogue. Indeed, I’d hope the faux end sequence in Spiderman: Homecoming was a signal that we were done with the schtick.
