To stay back long after a movie is over has always been considered Marvel Cinematic Universe's (MCU) trial by fire for its fans.
It all started as a secret post-credit scene in Iron Man featuring the first appearance of Samuel L Jackson's Nick Fury informing Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark that he's not the only superhero in the world, then came the hilarious shawarma scene in the first Avengers, and later on it became MCU tradition to include a mid-credits scene and a post-credit scene. But this isn't the case for Avengers: Endgame, the latest installment which just premiered in Malaysia today.
According to those who've watched an early screening of the film, aside from a beautiful homage shown as part of the earlier half of the credits, there are no bonus scenes found throughout the rest. The movie itself is already a bladder-blasting 3 hours long feature to begin with, and is supposedly ending the Infinity Stone storyline which has been built up for the past seven years of MCU - so not prolonging the audiences' stay may not be a bad thing. However, for those who are expecting a tease of what else is in store for Marvel's successful film franchise will be left sorely disappointed.
But there's a catch. A very vague catch though. Should you consider sitting through the credits anyway (you masochist), early viewers did mention that there is some kind of audio teaser at the end which left a lot of fans guessing to what it means.
So there you go. No post-credit scenes for Avengers: Endgame (visually at least) ; so pack up, clean up any rubbish, and you're free to go. Stay tuned for our review of the film soon, and remember: if you've watched the movie already, be a sport and don't spoil it.
