Ever since 2008’s Iron Man, Marvel has put an end credits scene after every Marvel Cinematic Universe film. But with Marvel introducing their first Marvel Cinematic Universe television series, WandaVision, it’s likely that many fans watched all the way to the end of the credits through the first three episodes, just in case. Now, WandaVision creator Jac Schaeffer has revealed whether or not audiences should bother watching all the way to the end of the WandaVision credits.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Schaeffer discussed the WandaVision credits, dodging the question of whether or not they had considered putting post-credits scenes at the end of every episode. But even if these first few episodes didn’t have any extra scenes, when asked if people should watch until the end during the finale, Schaeffer stated, “I would say that in any Marvel property, you should watch the thing in its entirety, no matter what. That’s what I would say.”
Kevin Feige is said to have put scenes at the end credits of Marvel Cinematic Universe films as a way for audiences to stay through the credits and see everyone who worked hard on the film. Even though the WandaVision credits show that fewer people work on this series than the typical Marvel film, it’s still far more than most television shows, so one would imagine that at least the finale will probably have some end credits scene.
Schaeffer doesn’t confirm or deny that there will be anything at the end of any episode, but considering WandaVision seems to be one larger, nine-episode story, watching the WandaVision credits for the last episode might be a good idea. If you’re extremely lazy, you could always just scrub to the end of the credits and check, but why not watch through the credits and see everyone who made the show possible.
Most end credit scenes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe hint at what is to come, and with so many projects on the way from Marvel, there’s no telling what the WandaVision credits will reveal. Considering that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier premieres two weeks after WandaVision ends, it seems like that could be referenced in some way.
But Kevin Feige has also said that WandaVision is the first part of an unofficial trilogy within the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Four, which also includes the third Spider-Man movie and Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. With rumors that WandaVision might begin the multiverse craziness that looks to be happening in Phase Four, it also seems extremely likely we might see some of that in a WandaVision end credits scene.
With only six episodes left of WandaVision, and the show wrapping up on March 5, 2021, there are just a few more options for WandaVision to include an end credits scene. As WandaVision is now setting up Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, who knows what this end credits scene could set up in terms of the future of this world. At least in this new medium of television programming, it’s kind of cool that Marvel is keeping up the traditions held by the films.
