Every MCU Disney+ Late Credit That Hasn't Been Payed Off (And When It Will)
MCU Disney+ shows have had their fair share of post-credits scenes, and it's one that still needs to be paid off for each one and when that will happen.
Every MCU Disney+ series has featured post-credits scenes at some point, but some of them haven't paid off yet. Post-credits scenes have been a staple of the MCU since the beginning, as they allow the studio to tease audiences by hinting at what's to come without compromising the main plot. Sometimes an end-credits scene is immediately resolved in the next film, but the suggested storyline often takes years to continue, as in the end-credits scenes of Avengers: Age of Ultron and Spider-Man: Far From Home, E.g.
In addition to the movie trailers, there are a number of MCU Disney+ shows that don't pay off immediately after the end credits. Based on what is currently known about the MCU movies and TV shows, there are clear clues as to when some end credits scenes will be established, as the way many upcoming projects are framed will be a logical continuation of where the show left off. However, it's not as obvious as when others might follow, so drawing conclusions for them will take a little more guesswork.
Monica Rambeau & The Skrull - Secret Invasion/The Marvels
The first post-credits scene to be discussed is WandaVision's, specifically A scene involving Teyonah Parris' Monica Rambeau. After Wanda removes Hex and SWORD begins to clean up Westview, a Skrull pulls Monica aside and tells her that one of her mother's friends, Captain Marvel Maria Rambeau (Lashana Lynch), wants to meet her in space. With Monica's next step in the MCU involving Skeletons, it would make sense for that scene to make a return in the Disney+ show "Secret Invasion," which will be adapted from the comic book story of Skeletons secretly infiltrating Earth and eventually taking over.
However, Monica will also appear in Marvel. The movie, due out next July, will undoubtedly take the titular Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) and Lady (Iman Villani) and Maria into space. This could also continue the arc started by Wandavision's end credits scene, which is further supported by the fact that there isn't any official confirmation of Monica's appearance in Marvel's Secret Invasion at this point.
Sharon Carter’s Release - Armor Wars/Captain America 4
Another post-credits scene that demands payback is Sharon Carter's MCU future after The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. In the show's post-credits scene, Sharon (Emily VanCamp) is revealed to be the Power Broker responsible For all the conflict in the Disney+ series, she was fully pardoned for her actions in Captain America: Civil War and rejoined the CIA. However, she plans to use her newfound CIA resources to expand the scope of her criminal activities.
The upcoming Captain America film, Captain America: The New World Order, will pick up where "The Falcon" and "The Winter Soldier" left off, so it makes the most sense for the post-credits scene to continue there. In the meantime, however, Marvel's Armored Warfare will tell the story of Tony Stark's technology being illegally sold to criminals. Since this fits with Sharon's new role as a power broker, it would also scan that the Falcon and Winter Soldier scene is set in Armored Warfare, and that Sharon is one of the film's main villains.
The Hydra Stomper In The Present - What If…? Season 2
In terms of animation, Marvel's What If...? has a post-credits scene that still needs to be paid off, revolving around Hydra Stomper appearing in the current MCU timeline. After teaming up with the Guardians of the Multiverse to defeat Ultron Infinity, Captain Carter returns to her universe to find her and her version of a pirate Black Widow keeps fighting and discovers that Hydra Stomper and Steve Rogers are alive and inside. What if...? Season 2 is already in the works, and this is reportedly the focus of the season 2 premiere (via Slash Film). So it just comes down to when...? Season 2 has finally premiered.
Jake Lockley Emerges - Moon Knight Season 2
Jack Rockley's (Oscar Isaacs) appearance in Moon Knight is a post-credits scene for a less obvious sequel route. While Marc Spector and Steven Grant seemed to brush shoulders with Khonshu at the end of the season, the opening credits scene reveals the existence of Lockley, a hidden third personality who is not only far more violent than Marc and Steven, but still willing to fight He cooperates with Queensland.
The existence of Jake Lockley will definitely be addressed the next time the Moon Knight character appears, but it's unclear when that will happen. There's no word yet on when or if he'll appear in any of the movies, and while a possible Moon Knight season 2 has been discussed, it's not a concrete project either.
Captain Marvel Swaps With Ms. Marvel - The Marvels
Most likely scene at the end of the credits The next fastest thing is that Captain Marvel and Miss Marvel in "Miss Surprise" swap places. At the end of Ms. Marvel, Kamala's bracelet suddenly starts to glow and she disappears out of nowhere, with Carol Danvers appearing in her place. 2023's The Marvels is when both characters will appear again, so it makes perfect sense to address the scene there. After seeing the D23 for the first time, this seems to have become a major part of the story.
Wong Busts Abomination Out Of Jail - Thunderbolts
The final post-credits scene is also recent. Wang frees Abomination (Tim Ross) from prison in She-Hulk: The Lawyer. In the She-Hulk series finale, Emil Blonsky was sent back to prison after being found violating his parole because he transformed into Abomination as a motivational speaker, but Benedict Wong's Wong showed up at Abomination's cell and took him to Kamar -Taj for unknown reasons.
This scene will definitely follow at some point, but as of now, it's unknown when Emil will reappear in the MCU. The most likely candidate is Thunderbolts. a movie about the former team A supervillain working for the government would be the perfect way for the Abomination to return to the MCU. There's no confirmed Abomination in Thunderbolts yet, but regardless, it's the most likely option.
