Remember way back when we told you The Avengers cast and crew were shooting an additional scene? Well, it looks like that additional scene will be tacked on to the credit sequence. It’s being reported as a second credits sequence, meaning there was already one in place for the initial screenings and another one has been filmed for the very end of the credits. In other words, don’t leave your theater until the screen goes dark and the ushers threaten to call the police. We’ll keep this post spoiler-free (for you and for me), but we’ve got links to where you can find more information if you simply cannot wait until Thursday at midnight.
The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon and starring Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cobie Smulders and Clark Gregg opens May 4th. Hit the jump for details and a bonus new TV spot.
In spoiler-free news, here’s a bonus TV spot for The Avengers which heaps gratuitous accolades upon its deserving self. If you’re so inclined, look for the scene description (spoilers) below the poster.
“After the battle, the Avengers team sitting quietly with no dialogue eating shwarma. Stark was not in his suit. Banner wasn’t Hulked out.”
