On the Friday of the long weekend, I went to the movies and saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
I’m a big fan of the Marvel universe, I love all the movies – Thor, Iron Man and of course The Avengers. Plus the X-Men movies (still waiting on a stand alone Deadpool movie!!) Even if you aren’t necessarily a fan of the Marvel movies, you would know one thing to be true:
YOU NEED TO STAY UNTIL THE END OF THE CREDITS
Here’s an example (minor spoilers), at the end of Iron Man, you meet Nick Fury for the first time. At the end of Incredible Hulk, you see Tony Stark hinting at the Avengers. At the end of Iron Man 2, you see Agent Coulson (WOO HOO AGENT COULSON) arriving at the site in New Mexico where Mjölnir has hit after Odin banished Thor from Asgard.
It’s all linked people! Every single one of these movies is linked. Obviously because Iron Man, Hulk and Thor make up part of the Avengers, but even Thor the Dark World is linked to the Guardians of the Galaxy movie (due out in August 2014).
So when the movie itself was 5 minutes from ending and people were starting to get up, I was shaking my head and questioning their sanity. I mean the movie hadn’t even finished yet, and they missed TWO EXTRA BITS!
Then when the movie had ended, more people started to get up.
Then after the first surprise scene MORE people started to get up.
Why come to a Marvel movie if you aren’t prepared to stay until the very end? You missed a really lovely bit which I’m not going to mention BECAUSE YOU SHOULD HAVE STAYED. End rant.
Am I the only one that thinks people are silly for leaving before the credits have finished in a Marvel movie?
