Guardians of the Galaxy comes out this weekend and according to director James Gunn, audiences who see it opening night will be the first to glimpse the post-credits tease at the end of the film, whatever it may be. Logic suggests it will have something to do with Avengers: Age of Ultron, the next Marvel movie, but perhaps it will look even further ahead, much as the last Avengers movie did in setting up the villain Thanos (who then wasn’t even cast for two years). The fan reaction was so positive, Marvel included a new teaser at the end of every movie’s credit sequence, but it’s never come close to replicating the excitement and surprise that came with seeing Samuel L. Jackson, in an eyepatch, talking about the “Avengers Initiative.” Iron Man 2 ended with a wink at the upcoming Thor. Next, Thor had a scene teasing The Avengers—that scene was directed by Joss Whedon and informed the plot of his movie much more than the one we’d just watched (which was directed by Kenneth Branagh).
