For Marvel Studios movies, mid and post-credits scenes have become a staple of the franchise, dating all the way back to 2008's Iron Man. In 2018, Avengers: Infinity War left fans on the edge of their seats with a scene teasing the arrival of Captain Marvel and when Carol's arrived, her movie's post-credits scene teased her first meeting with Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
However, as early reports for Avengers: Endgame begin to trickle in, rumor has it the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe film bucks the trend by not including any after-credits sequences.
After talking to a few people can now confirm - NO POST CREDITS SCENES in Endgame. Just so you know #Endgame— Daniel Richtman (@DanielRPK) April 23, 2019
For the past 10 years, it's become customary for viewers to remain in their seats as the credits roll; so much so that "never leave a Marvel movie before the credits" has become a bit of a catchphrase for moviegoers. With Endgame serving as the finale to the MCU's first big saga, the choice to refrain from this tradition could be an artistic choice to represent the end of the era.
Speculation also came forth that perhaps there is an end-credits scene, but Marvel cut it from early screenings to prevent spoilers before its worldwide release. However, reports from screenings after the premiere seem to confirm the absence of any stingers.
