Now, the world of superhero-themed cinema may now be filled to the point of bursting with post-credits teases, mid-credits nods and winks, and entire Blu-rays filled with additional content, but that doesn't mean that the industry is predestined to continue that trend. After all, there's always the possibility — however small it may be — that the likes of , and DC will suddenly decide to make their tent-pole pictures far more standalone and serious, and subsequently opt to eliminate the post-credits sequence entirely.

That, at any rate, appeared to be what Fox had decided to do with its soon to be released farewell to 's iconic on-screen , . After all, going by press screenings late last week, and advance fan screenings this past weekend, the movie very much didn't have a post or mid-credits sequence.

As it turns out, though:

'Logan' May Have A Secret Post-Credits Sequence That Critics Haven't Seen

That, at least, is the speculation that's currently making its way around the interweb, after Mike Sampson, the Senior Marketing and Promotions Director of the Alamo Drafthouse cinema chain, Tweeted that Fox has just extended the running time of Logan by a distinctly post-credits sequence-sized three minutes:

Which could, of course, mean absolutely nothing, but may well also indicate that Fox still has a tease or two up its sleeve. The studio did, after all, pull much the same trick when Deadpool hit theaters early last year, screening a version to critics that featured only one of the film's two post-credits sequences.

And, so, while Logan may not currently have a post-credits sequence (and, having sat through the entire credits, I can personally vouch for that), it seems that may well not be true come opening night. So, if you're planning on seeing Logan on March 3, you might want to psychologically prepare yourself for a lengthy wait once the film itself has come to a close.

But, then again, we should really all stay through the credits anyway, seeing as all of those people on screen tend to be the unsung heroes of the movie we just enjoyed. The only difference now is that there's a chance you might be rewarded for your support with a shiny post-credits sequence.

What do you think, though? Will you be sitting through Logan's credits sequence, just in case? Let us know below!
