Post-credit sequences are an expected part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, often hinting at characters and storylines from the studio’s future releases. Now Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn has revealed that the upcoming space adventure will feature no fewer than five such scenes.
Gunn confirmed the post-credit scene tally on Twitter, where he frequently engages with writers and answers questions from fans. In response to Screen Rant’s assertion that the film had four scenes after the credits, Gunn stepped in to correct them:
The director provided no further details about what these scenes would contain, but the movie is out in less than a month, so we’ll find out soon.
In related news, Gunn also confirmed that he will be returning for a third movie in the series. “Yes, I’m returning to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” he posted on Facebook. “There is a history in Hollywood of haphazard endings to trilogies, and I didn’t want to become a part of that dishonorable tradition of pretending the third one doesn’t exist.
“In the end, my love for [the characters] goes deeper than you guys can possibly imagine, and I feel they have more adventures to go on and things to learn about themselves and the wonderful and sometimes terrifying universe we all inhabit. And, like in both Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, we will work on creating the story that goes beyond what you expect.”
