Captain America: Civil War doesn’t officially open in North America until Friday, and Thursday in some places, but last week, it opened overseas. Since it’s now in theaters and already tearing up the box office, information is now making the internet rounds. Some spoilers have hit the net, and that includes the mid and post-credits scenes that take place once the main movie is over, and here are the little extras you may see in theaters when it opens.
Please let it be known that there are spoilers ahead for Captain America: Civil War and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you haven’t seen it yet and don’t want to know what happens, then it is recommended that you stop reading now.
Anyone that has ever seen a movie in the MCU knows there will be something during or after the credits which leads to the next film or something in the future. It should come as no surprise that Captain America: Civil War does have them, but it may not be what the domestic audience sees.
The Russos spoke with Forbes recently and didn’t hint that extra scenes were there, but Joe guaranteed it.
“We can confirm that you should stay sat in your seats when the movie is done.”
Sometimes, there are different scenes shown in the international theaters as opposed to what is shown in domestic theaters. By the looks of things, it would not be surprising for both sides of the world end up with the same mid and post-credits scenes, as they’re pretty good.
According to the Wrap, the mid-credits scene is the one that has been shown to critics at press screenings and is expected to remain exactly as it is for the release on Thursday and Friday.
In the scene shown after the credits begin to roll, it tells a bit about the future of Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier. He is shown in Wakanda with Black Panther (T’Challa) and Captain America (Steve Rogers). Bucky believes he can’t keep control of himself and needs to be frozen once again.
T’Challa says he will keep watch over him and protect him while he’s frozen. Captain America said that if their enemies know of Bucky’s location, they will go after him. T’Challa simply responds with “Let them try” before the jungle, and a big Black Panther statue is shown.
The after-credits scene is a bit more on the fun side of things, and it includes the newest member of the MCU.
Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is shown back in his room in Queens after everything goes down and he’s fiddling with some technological gadgets that Tony Stark gave him. A red light beams out of his right wrist and Aunt May comes into his room, which quickly causes him to hide everything.
Aunt May questions Peter’s black eye and he blames somebody named Steve, who she doesn’t know, and he’s from Brooklyn. This is an obvious nod to Captain America and it’s funny, but it’s not the best part.
Once Aunt May finally leaves the room, Peter begins playing around with things again and beams the light onto his ceiling which ends up being the “Spider Signal.” A card lands on the screen and says “Spider-Man will return,” which references Spider-Man: Homecoming, and it hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
So, there you have it. The mid and post credits scenes that international audiences are seeing attached to Captain America: Civil War. It is extremely possible that the Russos or Marvel could change them for the domestic release, but that isn’t yet known. All of that information will become fully known this weekend as the studio officially goes through Phase 3 toward Phase 4.
