What Happens in the Post-Credits Scenes of ‘Thor: The Dark World’? [Movie Spoilers]
Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World opens today (Nov. 8), and moviegoers will definitely want to stay through the credits for not one, but two post-credit scenes that hint at future movies, including ‘Avengers 2: The Age of Ultron.’
According to the Hypable, one of Thor 2’s after-the-credits scenes come halfway through the credits, with the other playing when the credits have finished rolling.
Just in case you wanted to save the surprise for movie night, we’ll say this one time:
In the mid-credits scene, Lady Sif and Volstagg visit The Collector (Benicio del Toro) to drop off the infinity stone Aether that villain Malekith used in his bid to destroy the world. But what they don’t know is that the being is working for Thanos, the baddie you may remember from the post-credit scene of ‘The Avengers.’
So basically, they hand over one of the six infinity stones Thanos is collecting for his own nefarious plans.
Hypable speculates that we won’t actually see Thanos and his power gauntlet in action until ‘The Avengers 3,’ which makes sense since the villain in the Avengers sequel due out in 2014 is Ultron.
The second, and last, post-credits scene features some gripping moments between Thor, Jane (Natalie Portman), Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston).
Thor tells Odin that he’s leaving Asgard to remain on Earth with Jane. The twist is, it’s not actually Odin, but Loki masquerading as the king. The following glimpse at earth features a frost giant who was somehow transported to the planet during the final battle between Thor and Malekith.
It looks like Thor will be very busy in Thor 3.
