As a meme so eloquently states, “One does not simply leave a Marvel film before the credits are over”. And in Captain America: Civil War, there were two scenes that came once the credits rolled.
WARNING: Spoilers ahead!
At the end of the film, we got a tease of Wakanda, as Black Panther did a huge favor for Captain America. Then, we got one last look at Spider-Man as he got some new tech via Tony Stark. Now while one is clearly heading towards the path of the Black Panther movie, the other felt a little more isolated. The directors of Civil War explained why they did this approach to ComicBook.com:
“That’s the one thing that I’ve always really respected at Marvel,” Anthony Russo tells ComicBook.com of post credits scenes. “They don’t get you hung up on the future. Every movie has to be what it wants to be and if you don’t get that right there is no future. The cool thing about it is there’s a lot of pressure on just, ‘What do you want to do with the character? What do you need him for? How is he functioning in this story?’ And then, ‘How does that dictate all the choices you’re gonna make about the character from after to costume to storyline to everything.’ It all flows from specific needs. So, yes, while it is sort of linked in conceptually to future ideas about where it’s gonna go, the emphasis is really much on this story with those choices.”
