Hey Movie Talkers, so I don’t mean to be the bearer of bad news, but Spider-Man will not be featured in the mid credits teaser for Avengers: Age of Ultron. I know, I know I was hoping for Spidey’s introduction into the M.C.U to be teased as well. I mean for Marvel Studios to announce to their biggest general audience in attendance across thousands of theaters, that Spider-Man will finally appear along side Ironman and Captain America through a teaser would be so epic. Unfortunately, the boss behind all things Marvel films, Kevin Feige confirmed this in an interview himself.
I would post the video on here but its literally so short and to the point. He gets asked the question and immediately shakes his head and replies, “No”.
Now, the film/Marvel geek in me is thinking “Oh of course he’s going to deny it and surprise us when we watch Age of Ultron“. The fact is that Feige is known to play his cards against fans expectations. Remember when you sat through all the credits for Guardians of the Galaxy and were hoping (expecting?) for that one character to appear? Instead we got a Howard the Duck cameo. If a non Spider-Man related tease is in fact the case, then the mid credits teaser come down to three possibilities.
- A teaser for the Black Panther character, since he will be making his introduction in next year’s Civil War film.
- A clip of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang (pre Ant-Man) breaking into a shop somewhere. (A marketing tactic for Marvel’s next film).
- An appearance from Thanos, either in possession of the Infinity Gauntlet or an Infinity stone.
Honestly, there’s a lot of directions they could go with this. Maybe they have yet to cast Peter Parker, and that’s why we aren’t getting anything Spider-Man yet. I read somewhere that Marvel could save a Spider-Man teaser for Ant-Man’s post credits, which is still a possibility given the film is still a couple months away. Either way I appreciate that Marvel does these mid/post credits teases, they’re so fun.
