Sticking Around After the Movie: 12 Notable Post-Credit Sequences

Iron Man (2008)

Comic book nerds (this one included) let out a collective, giddy “EEEEEEEE” when Jon Favreau fan-serviced them in the back of a movie theater with a cherry-on-top scene at the end of Iron Man. Very kinky.

Marvel solidified their plans to create an intertwined cinematic universe like no other by tying in Nick “Sam “Bad Ass Mother” Jackson” Fury’s grander plan: The Avengers Initiative. Heck, he could have been recruiting Tony Stark to kill snakes on planes – a Jackson cameo alone is guaranteed to prompt enthusiastic hooting and hollering.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

X-Men Origins: Wolverine wins back a few points for having twice the post-credit action. Audiences were treated to one of two alternate stingers, either a scene revealing that headless Deadpool (aka Weapon XI) is still alive or a scene in which Wolverine drinks at a bar in Japan, hinting at a possible sequel. A third scene in which Hugh Jackman apologized for people spending money to see the movie was filmed, but never released.

What’s your favorite post-credits scene?
