Ranking the Marvel Movies’ Post-Credits Scene

Disney bought Fox, which means we are in for one monopolistic entertainment making Hell. Let’s not even deal with Marvel’s TV output and just take a look at all of their famous ~POST CREDIT SEQUENCES~ because that’s the kind of thing we do around here.

 

DEAD LAST: Thor Ragnorok’s sequences

They lose by default for not being available on YouTube yet.

 

Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange sucks.

 

Guardians of the Galaxy

Howard the Duck is a funny cameo, but not a lot else here to offer.

 

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Okay, here’s a brief appearance by Thanos where he’s being vague about his plans. You need to moderately deep knowledge of ’90s Marvel to get what the hell is going on here in any way.

 

Captain America: Civil War

Maybe I’m stupid, but I still don’t get the significance of the Spider-watch thing. Did he ever use it again? BUT the shot of Wakanda is cool, and we probably need to know where Bucky ends up, so this isn’t a total loss.

 

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Great to see The Vulture, one of Marvel’s only good villains (his character motivations make sense!) still alive and clearly still important to future installments. (I hope he becomes a quasi-Norman Osborne.) Also, we get a fun tag to the great Captain America-does-instructional-school-videos bit.

 

Ant-Man

Maybe I’m a nerd, but I’m hyped as hell for Ant-Man & The Wasp. The other scene is just a mini trailer, and those are boring.

 

Iron Man 2

Sure, the peek at Thor’s hammer was cool, but also we already knew he’d be around, so it was also kind of “who cares”.

 

Thor: The Dark World

The collector stuff is important. The Jane and Thor stuff is not.

 

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I genuinely didn’t know who the “twins” were supposed to be the first time I saw this, but I’m always on board for sad Bucky.

 

Thor

This is weirdly important info to just have after the credits. They’re really confident we’ll hang around at this point.

 

Captain America: The First Avenger

The mirror of Iron Man’s first proposal for joining the Avengers is a nice callback, then we got a callback for a movie we were all very hyped on. Excellent hype building use of post-credits scenes.

 

Iron Man 3

Funny stuff!

 

The Avengers

The Schawarma scene is obviously a nice joke, but the confirmation of the MAD TITAN as an upcoming villain was very exciting for… a lot of people.

 

Iron Man

Oh hell yes, confirm that Avengers movie for me Daddy.

 

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Wow, unlike the underwhelming post-credits sequence from the first movie, Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 offers up no less than five different short scenes, each with new characters, important plot details, and, well, mostly jokes. Which is great. Really good work with this one.
