So we all know their was a post credit scene at the end of Spiderman 2 to promote Days of Futures Past coming in a matter of weeks! Personally I am extremely excited to see the big bad Sentinals on the big screen! But that is not what this article is about. I am writing with an idea of what we may see at the end of the film during the credits. Now post credit scenes are all the rage in the superhero genre so it would not surprise me if X-Men Days of Futures Past did the same trick. So here are some possibilities of what we could see after the credits have rolled.
Seeing as they have already announce the next film will be X-Men Apocalypse, having the character himself appear is a pretty obvious choice. I can not wait to see him waging war against those 'genetically inferior' and trying to set a world with the rule of the strongest rule. They could play it out many ways to show him in a post credit scene but 1 way that I think would be amazing is if we saw him creating Archangel! This way the film would explode with excitement from the fans as he is pretty much the most famous horseman Apocalypse has ever used.
Again keeping with the same idea to showcase the sequel they could even show the Age of Apocalypse future. Above is Scott Summer who we all know as Cyclops and he is the poster boy for all the is good about the X-Men...WRONG! In the Age of Apocalypse universe he is the adopted son of Mr Sinister the head genetecist and one of Apocalypse's most trusted generals. In this universe Cyclops is evil! Now this is not to say all the X-Men are evil but it would be cool to see the completely different counterparts of this twisted universe. r
Mr Sinister has worked with Apocalypse many times in the comics so it would be a shock for him not to be in the sequel. So they could feature a scene showing him genetically testing someone and Apocalypse asking for a progress report. This simple scene could set up the premise for the next instalment which would create a buzz with the fans. Another really exciting thing they could even do is have Warring Worthington III being the test subject ready for his transformation from Angel to Archangel. This would then surprise everyone by another member from the first three films appearing in the movie even if it is right at the end.
Wolverine 3 has been announced and is scheduled for a March 3 2017 release. So even with it having a release date after the next instalment of the X-Men franchise it does not discount them having a clever way to connect the 3rd Wolverine film to the two new X-Men films. If they play the Age of Apocalypse card and have Wolverine go back in time again to change the future his 3rd film could involve him having to deal with the memories of futures that never happened while still missing parts of his past. The scene could simply have Wolverine showing a sign of personal trouble while he is completely alone. Almost like this Wolverine in the scene is one trapped in another nightmare future knowing he is going to have to do it all over again.
Now we have only heard about this film is that they have a writer and the team will consist of 5 members. Now just because this is all we have heard does not mean the whole process is further down the line than we think. If they have decided on the 5 characters of the team they could simply do a scene where the 5 collect in the same location and simply agree they are going to do what the X-Men will not, kill those that need to be killed for the safety of all mutants. Even if that is it and we had to wait until after X-Men Apocalypse for the solo film does not mean the team could not feature in the X-Men Apocalypse film before their own film.
They could even use the film's post credit scene as a chance to promote the studios other upcoming superhero team. With some people torn over the change to some of the characters it could allow them the chance to give those people a sneak peak and try to convince them to give it a chance. How the scene could play out is varied, it could feature all of them meeting and Reed showing them his data on an upcoming cosmic storm he wishes to study. It would also show that the studio has learnt from Marvel and that using your own movies to advertise you next few upcoming films works!
All of these options are plausable I believe but who knows what they will do. They could shock us all and use the post credits to do nothing, we will have to wait and see. Which would you like to see happen? Do you have you own ideas and thoughts on what they could do?
