The MCU is kicking off Phase 5 with its latest movie release, but how many post-credits scenes does Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania have?
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is kicking off Phase 5 with its latest movie release, but how many post-credits scenes does Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania have? The MCU has a long-standing tradition of including post-credits scenes, though the exact number ranges. A common number of MCU movie post-credits scenes is two in a movie, but sometimes a film only has one, or in the case of Avengers: Endgame, none. On the flip side, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law hold the record for most MCU post-credits scenes with five each.
Since Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is the first movie in the MCU’s Phase 5, which continues the Multiverse Saga, it’s a key release as part of Marvel Studios overarching story. As such, it’s a no-brainer to expect the movie to have at least one post-credits scene. But given there’s no guarantee how many post-credits scenes Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has, it may be unclear the exact number to be expected.
Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania Has 2 Post-Credits Scenes
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania falls in line with what has seemingly become MCU standard and includes two post-credits scenes at the end of the film. The first credits scene is at the mid-credits point, after the main creatives and cast involved in the film are spotlighted, before the full credits start to roll. The second credits scene is then featured at the very end of the credits. Those wanting to watch both will need to stay till the very end of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
How Important Are Quantumania’s Post-Credits Scenes?
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is important to the MCU story going forward according to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, and its post-credits scenes are evidence of that fact. To avoid spoilers, what exactly happens in the credits scenes won’t be mentioned here, but it should be noted they set up at least two MCU projects directly – one movie and one Disney+ TV show. They set up a key element of the MCU that’s been alluded to in previous releases and within Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania itself, as well as revealing the storyline of an upcoming TV show season.
Further, both credits scenes tie into the larger, overarching story of the MCU’s Multiverse Saga, so there may be additional Marvel movies and shows that are set up more loosely in Quantumania’s post-credits stingers. The MCU multiverse, introduced in Endgame and further explored in Phase 4 projects like Loki and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, is the focal point of Marvel Studios’ latest saga and more light is shed upon it in the credits scenes. Phase 5 and 6 are poised to dive even deeper into the multiverse, as well as the next Thanos-level villain that is Kang, and both scenes are important to understanding where the story is heading. As a result, the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania post-credits scenes are incredibly important to the story of the franchise going forward.
