Avengers Infinity War is now in theaters, giving fans all over the world exactly what they’ve been waiting for: an extra scene at the end of the movie.
Yes, forget about Thanos, about the Infinity Stones, about Thor meeting the Guardians of the Galaxy, about Iron Man meeting Doctor Strange … it’s all about that post-credits scene.
Avengers Infinity War has an understandably subdued credits sequence. There are no fancy animations, no cute jokes. And it only has one credits-adjacent scene, at the very end.
Infinity War itself has shown us how our heroes react to Thanos’ ultimate victory: the instantaneous murder of half of all sentient beings in the universe, randomly chosen. They watch their closest compatriots crumble into dust, expressions of shock and fear on their faces even as they fade away. Infinity War’s post-credits scene shows us the effect of Thanos’ actions on the rest of Earth.
As Hill starts to fade as well, Fury dashes to his bag in the back seat of their car, grabbing a strangely modified beeper. And just before he himself crumbles into flakes of dust, he manages to activate it.
About: Avengers Infinity War
Avengers Infinity War. If you’re looking for a spoiler-free, risk-free review, you can find it here. But if you’re about to wander into the article below it either means you have already seen the latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or you really, truly don’t mind knowing what’s to come. We’re going to give you once last chance to bail out but after this GIF, the gauntlets are coming off.
Almost everyone paying attention headed into Avengers Infinity War knew some people were going to die. After all, the contracts are soon up on some major franchise stars. Plus you can’t tease a big bad villain like Josh Brolin’s Thanos for 13 movies without some kind of sacrifice from Earth’s mightiest heroes. Some comic-book aficionados with a passing familiarity with Thanos even suspected that his quest for the Infinity Gauntlet might end with him snapping his fingers and wiping out half of all existence. By the time Zoë Saldana’s Gamora mentioned it as a possibility a few times in the movie, hopefully the rest of you were prepared as well. Who died? Who survived? Who will probably return? We’ll get there.
