I'm going to start out this article with a DEFCON 1 spoiler warning. This article discusses IN DETAIL the post-credit sequences of Thor: The Dark World. I know what you're thinking: "Oh, I bet it's the usual standard rumors and speculation from anonymous sources", but, nope, you're wrong. We've got solid proof of how Thor 2 will end. If you do not want to know, stop reading now!
OK, have they gone? Good. Now, although Thor: The Dark World is scheduled to open in the US on November 8th, it will be hitting theaters abroad a week earlier. This means several European outlets have already seen advanced screenings of the movie and they aren't exactly keeping the details to themselves. As well as the first reviews, we've also received news of Thor's two post-credit sequences. These both come courtesy of Belgian website Brainfreeze.be, although they are corroborated by other sources. Check out a rough translation of the scene descriptions below:
It appears the first scene occurs half-way through the credits and could be seen as setting up the forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Brainfeeze had this to say:
After the Aether is back in the hands of the Asgardians, Sif and Volstagg bring the item to the intergalactic museum of none other than The Collector, played by Benicio del Toro. The reason for this is that the Tesseract is already on Asgard and they should have no two Infinity Stones in their possession. When he is alone with the Aether, The Collector utters the phrase, 'One down, five to go'.
The second scene occurs after the conclusion of the credits and appears to be more comic in tone:
Thor returns to Earth and into the arms of Jane Foster, and they share a passionate kiss. The God of Thunder clearly chooses to be with her. In last scene, a beast from Jotunheim pops up in London, having previously passed through an interdimensional passage during the Convergence during the final battle.
What do you think? How will these post-credit scenes affect the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Give us your opinions below.
