Have you sat through end of credits hook Conclusion To see what’s next for our heroes, Only to be a little stunned by what was shown? you’re not the only one. The episode director felt the same way.
End credits scenes It has become an important part of Marvel Studios DNA. With each movie, fans sit through the credits expecting to see what’s to come for the future of the franchise. It’s a tradition that has continued even at Disney+’s live Marvel shows, with WandaVisionAnd The hawk and the winter soldier, And loki It all provides a little extra for their respective finals. So everyone expected the same hook Well, what we got was a little funky.
End credits hook Boycotted by Marvel Studios, they wished their fans “Happy Holidays”, followed by The entire production of “Save the City” by Musical Rogers, which was highlighted in parts during the first episode of the program. Here though we get the full song from start to finish—aAnd the decision to make it into the show’s end scene has left the episode’s director, Rhys Thomas, baffled.
“I didn’t know,” Thomas Collider said When asked about the scene. ‘It wasn’t planned that this was how the show was going to end. I was actually a bit in the dark too. I was curious, like, ‘Is this slot going to be reserved for doing something else,’ In the tradition that Marvel is famous for? I was waiting for what that would be. Yeah, they made the decision to finally put the musical there, and frankly, I was a bit conflicted because like a fan, I’m like, “People, they want to see something, they want to know what’s going to happen next. Is that going to disappoint?”
So Thomas, like the fans, was expecting something narrative-driven, but explained why it didn’t.
“In all fairness again, for the team, it’s like, ‘No, no, no, it’s Christmas, it’s light. We have a lot of blood in this episode, it’s just fun. It’s a fun release at the end, and it’s a nice way to kick people out. “That’s how it happened and in terms of what it was, it was part of…obviously, when we filmed it for ethe first episode, We shot everything, but it’s clear in the mailthe first episodeThe focus was Jeremy [Renner] and less performance. she was [an] evolution of it. “
It’s important to note that Marvel credits scenes aren’t always amazingly revealing. One of my personal favorites is the last one in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is just Captain America teasing you for sitting through the credits. So, there is certainly precedent for something fun and funny, but with so many questions still unanswered about Kingpin, Clint, and Kate, The rest, it was a slightly surprising decision, but it wasn’t unwelcome.
Head to the Collider To read more from Thomas on the ending. It’s a great interview that delves into the amount of action actually filmed at Rockefeller Center, the secrecy behind Kingpin, the banter between Kate and Yelena, and more.
