There was a mention this week about the potential for THREE post-credit scenes coming at the end of the next Captain America film. During an interview with the Russo Brothers, they mentioned the possibility that the massive movie will possible include three glimpses once the end credits begin to roll. So what could we see in these scenes? Set-ups for Phase Three films are the likely outcome. I have been thinking about the three scenes and what I would like to see them involve. So I will give what I believe will be involved in these sequences and also the order in which I expect to see them. Remember, I have not seen the film nor do I hold any knowledge of its content with the exception of what Marvel Studios has released.
SCENE ONE: Spider-Man And The Symbiote Suit!
After the CIVIL WAR, I believe there will be a disillusioned Peter Parker really wanting to distance himself from the heroes…at least for the time being. He will be the most unexperienced, the most vulnerable and maybe the most frightened character at the end of Civil War as he has no idea what he has signed up for. While wanting to keep his distance from Tony Stark, I reckon that New York shall see a certain black substance finding its way around Parker’s neighbourhood and hopefully be a set-up for the almighty Venom. It has been said a standalone Venom movie is in production, but we really need to see him clash with Spider-Man before this happens.
We see Spider-Man heading back to Aunt May’s apartment, he can’t tell her he is this new powered being nor tell her what he has seen. His dark thoughts really start to collect after the big “loss”. It will be this inner darkness that calls the symbiote to Peter and then this may be what begins the origin to one of the most famous villains in comic book history (and won’t be played by Topher Grace!). Spider-Man goes out to do a heroic deed after seeing on the news about a guy flying around new York throwing bombs at people, meanwhile the screen then blacks out as we zoom out of Peter’s room as a black ooze covers his window.
SCENE TWO: Ulysses Klaue in Wakanda
We was introduced to the villain in AGE OF ULTRON, Andy Serkis will hopefully return and will be taking on T’Challa in the 2018 BLACK PANTHER film. What I would like to see is an angry Ulysses as he plans to take over the world and destroy those who have hurt him in the past. We will also see the lovely robotic arm of Ulysses, with his arm made of…Vibranium. With the most powerful arm in existence and a huge arsenal behind him, he will certainly prove a huge challenge to the Black Panther.
Ulysses should be seen talking about his plans to destroy certain places around the world after learning of the fracture in The Avengers. We also see his lovely new arm in full force as he punches through a wall of concrete in celebration that his plans can finally go ahead. He is warned that T’Challa is still alive, Ulysses Klaue laughs at this and states “He won’t stay that way for long, I will see you soon my old friend”.
SCENE THREE: Thanos Acquires His First Stone
You may remember from Thor: The Dark World, The Collector was given one of the “stones” to look after. My theory is that as Benecio Del Toro will apparently not be in Guardians Of The Galaxy 2, I would think it was because this stone is actually found by Thanos and then put into his Gauntlet. Thanos will remain fairly in the shadows until Infinity Wars, but this could be a good way to show his progression to being this power-wielding mad titan!
The Collector is currently hidden away in some dark location, the only item he still has is the Aether which was given to him by Volstagg and Sif. He hopes to sell it to get as far away from this sector of the Universe as possible and live the rest of his life in luxury. Unfortunately, it turns out the buyer is not who he first thought, and it actually is Thanos. Thanos demands the Aether from The Collector, who gives it willingly. Though, Thanos still kills him and places the stone in the gauntlet. Mirroring The Collector’s comment from when he acquired it, Thanos states “One Down, Five To Go”. The gauntlet then glows, and lets out a blast of red light!
Just a bit more to add to this, I reckon each film leading up to Infinity Wars part 1 (that is six films) could see a Post Credit Scene each with Thanos acquiring a stone in each one. With six films, that would complete his Gauntlet in time for Infinity Wars. Does that sound like a good plan? I think it does.
Captain America: Civil War is out 29th April 2016 in the UK and 6th May 2016 in the US. We will soon find out what is to happen…
