'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Has Two Post-Credits Scenes
Marvel has gotten in the habit of teasing its legions of fans with post-credits scenes that often reveal something about films to come. Spider-Man: Homecoming is no exception.
The critically acclaimed reboot of the webbed wonder boasts two post-credits scenes; well, one is technically mid-credits, while the other one comes at the very end.
Warning, spoilers are ahead.
The first scene is pretty standard post-film fare. We get a glimpse of a character from the movie, the purposeful introduction of someone new, and a hint about things to come. In this case, it’s Adrian Toomes — aka the Vulture, played by Micheal Keaton — in prison. He’s approached by a fellow prisoner, who has a scorpion tattoo. This could be a pointed hint that the ambiguous figure is in fact Scorpion, potentially a future Spidey-verse baddie. The man asks Toomes to reveal Spider-Man’s identity, which he refuses to do.
This probably sets up a scenario in which we will see more of Toomes down the road. Is he doing Peter Parker a favor? Or does he want to just take on Spider-Man himself? Who knows, for now.
The second scene is much less speculative and is basically a fourth wall-breaking poke at the audience. We get some quality time with Captain America, now a classroom video staple in the Spidey-verse, as he addresses the audience directly about end credits scenes! After doling out some wholesome wisdom on the virtues of patience, a title card flashes across the screen to let us know that Spider-Man will be back in 2019. Thanks, guys.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is in theaters now.
