Marvel Studios broke from tradition by not including any extra scenes after the credits of ‘Avengers: Endgame’, but considering that this picture was intended to provide closure to the first 21 movies of the “Infinity Saga” that was a fitting decision. But now, should you return for another screening and choose to sit through the credits, you’ll get more than the audible clanking throwback to ‘Iron Man’.
This week saw the release of the trailer for ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’, from Marvel Studios and Sony, but if you’ve seen it, you know that it deals directly with the aftermath of ‘Endgame’. In fact, star Tom Holland appears at the beginning of the clip warning viewers not to watch it until after they’d seen ‘Endgame’. (Hard to imagine, but there are some folks out there who still haven’t.) But theaters are supposed to run the ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ trailer before all major movies, and there are none more major at the moment than ‘Endgame’. But rather than play a trailer that spoils the movie that a viewer is about to watch, Sony has instructed theaters to hold the trailer for ‘Far From Home’ and play it after the credits of ‘Endgame’. This request was reported as having been sent by Sony via email to each theater.
To be honest, at this point, if someone still hasn’t seen ‘Endgame’ once, they can’t be all that concerned with spoilers.
But even after the news that ‘Endgame’ didn’t have any post-credits scenes, some diehards still sat through the credits just because it’s a tradition. At least this way, there is some reward after it’s all over.
‘Avengers: Endgame’, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, is now playing in theaters everywhere.
‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’, directed by Jon Watts, stars Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jacob Batalon, Remy Hii, Tony Revolori, Angourie Rice, Martin Starr, and Zendaya, with Jon Favreau, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, and Marisa Tomei. It opens on July 2, 2019.
