AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Has NO Post-Credits Tag Or 'Captain Marvel' Cameo, Says Kevin Feige

It seems Avengers: Age of Ultron will not continue Marvel's post-credits scene tradition, per Joss Whedon and Kevin Feige, who also debunk Captain Marvel and tease another secret female character

With just under two weeks remaining before Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in theaters worldwide, Entertainment Weekly spoke recently with Joss Whedon about the latest rumors. Surprisingly, the writer/director revealed that Age of Ultron will not continue Marvel's post-credits tradition because he couldn't top the shawarma scene. "We all came at it separately—we don’t want to chase that," said Whedon. "That was a jewel and a weird little quirk. There is nothing at the very end. And that’s not a fake-out. We want people to know so they don’t sit there for 10 minutes and then go: 'Son of a bitch! I’ll kill them!'" Even though there won't be a post-credits scene, Whedon says he and Marvel did try to come up with something. "It didn’t seem to lend itself in the same way, and we wanted to be true to what felt right," Joss Whedon says. "The first rule of making a sequel is take the best moments and do something else. Don’t do the Indiana Jones gun trick again differently. Just go somewhere else. Don’t try to hit the same highs, because people will sense it."

Marvel Studios president of production Kevin Feige also spoke with Entertainment Weekly, echoing Joss Whedon's comments that there will not be a post-credits scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, "There will be a [mid-credits] tag," he said, "but there’s not a post-post-credit scene."  Therefore, we can expect something right after the movie ends and just before credits begin a la The Avengers' Thanos introductory scene. Whether or not the Avengers: Age of Ultron mid-credits scene will tease Ant-Man, or one of the many upcoming "Phase 3" movies remains to be seen.

Kevin Feige was then pressed about the never-ending rumor that Carol Danvers will be introduced in Avengers: Age of Ultron before she flies solo in the 2018 Captain Marvel movie, to which the producer confirmed is completely untrue. However, Feige did tease that there is a "secret female character" in the upcoming Marvel sequel: "It’s not a big deal, but it’s a good character," he said. Furthermore, neither Joss Whedon nor Kevin Feige would reveal exactly who the recently revealed cast members Linda Cardellini and Julie Delpy are playing in Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, EW reckons one of them will play Black Widow's (Scarlett Johansson) instructor in a flachback, which both filmmakers hint will be a "powerful moment" for the Russian spy. What do you think?



Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure. Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision. Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” published in 1963. Get set for an action-packed thrill ride when The Avengers return in Avengers: Age of Ultron May 1, 2015.
