If part of your excitement leading up the the release of Avengers: Age Of Ultron is to witness some more post-battle shawarma chomping (you know, the best bit of the whole movie, right at the end of the film’s painfully long credits sequence) you are out of luck friends.
According to the film’s writer-director Joss Whedon, there aren’t going to be any extra special bonus scenes worth enduring the credits for this time around.
“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!'”
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige also confirmed the news about the film having no extra-extra bonus scenes. But, there will be a bonus sequence that serves some quick gratification.
“There will be a tag. That is, there will be a short, epilogue-like scene that pops up shortly after the credits start. But there’s not a post-post-credit scene.”
Whedon says the reason for excluding an after-credits bonus was that there was no way of topping the famous shawarma scene from the first movie. “We all came at it separately, we don’t want to chase that. That was a jewel and a weird little quirk…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.”
