If you've been pumped and excited to death about [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035)'s mid-credits scene for months and been speculating about all the possibilities they could have in store to tease future films like I was, you're set for disappointment. While the post credits scene to Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron is very cool, and very important to future plot, it's not what most people would've hoped.

Warning, spoilers ahead. I can completely confirm this as the mid-credits scene, having seen the film myself.

The credits stop rolling. Up from the bottom of the screen rises a golden gauntlet out of the dark: none other than the infinity gauntlet. Suddenly the presumed Asgardian vault around the weapon begins to open, letting in an extraordinarily bright light. As the vault fully opens a purple hand reaches in and grabs it, and slips it onto his hand. Thanos' face comes into view, and he mutters "I guess I’ll have to do it myself". The end.

Now you're probably thinking to yourself... really? Is that SERIOUSLY all there is? YES. That is seriously ALL there is. Frustrating a bit, but the scene actually leaves us with so many more questions than answers. How did Thanos get into the vault? Personally, I have a theory of my own.

Remember when at the end of [Thor: The Dark World](movie:206462), it was revealed that the conversation between Odin and Thor was really between Thor and Loki in disguise as the All-father? It was definitely apparent that Loki is free in Asgard to cause mischief, including the opportunity to let his former partner in crime into the heavenly city to take the most dangerous weapon in the universe.

What do you think about the post credits scene? Did Loki let Thanos in, or do you have your own theory. Write a response post HERE!
