Spider-Man Post-Credit Scenes
In most superhero movies, there is at least one post-credits scene. But in the case of Spider-Man, there have been a whopping six post-credits scenes! Let’s take a look at each of them.
In total, there are five post-credit scenes in Spider-Man (2002). The first four are quick scenes that show what various characters are doing after the events of the film. The fifth and final scene is a teaser for the sequel, Spider-Man 2 (2004).
The first post-credit scene shows Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) returning home to his Aunt May (Rosemary Harris). He gives her a big hug and tells her that he’s sorry for everything that happened.
The second post-credit scene shows J. Jonah Jameson (J.K. Simmons) ranting about Spider-Man on his radio show. He says that he’s going to put a bounty on Spider-Man’s head, and anyone who brings him in will get a big reward.
The third post-credit scene shows Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst) at her audition for the lead role in a Broadway musical. She gets the part and celebrates with Peter Parker.
The fourth post-credit scene shows Harry Osborn (James Franco) vowing to find out who killed his father. He says that he will never rest until he finds the culprit and makes them pay.
The fifth and final post-credit scene is a teaser for the sequel, Spider-Man 2 (2004). It shows Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina) robbing a bank. When he’s confronted by the police, he tells them that they’re “dealing with four arms now.”
Spider-Man 2 (2004)
In the Spider-Man 2 post-credits scene, we see J. Jonah Jameson on the steps of a courthouse being swarmed by reporters. He’s just been cleared of all charges in the case involving the Daily Bugle’s publication of Doctor Octopus’s rampage. As he’s fielding questions from the press, a black SUV pulls up and an arm extends from it, holding a card with the number “212” written on it. Cut to black.
Confused? We were too. But here’s what it means: that’s the number for Doctor Octopus’s prison in Riker’s Island (seen earlier in the movie). So, it looks like JJJ is going to pay a visit to Doc Ock to gloat… or maybe try to recruit him for some diabolical scheme? We never find out, because this post-credits scene was apparently meant to be a set-up for Spider-Man 3… which sadly never happened.
Spider-Man 3 (2007)
In Spider-Man 3, Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) finally has his hands full after Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst) tells him she needs some space. Parker’s conflicting emotions are made worse when he’s forced to wear an alien costume that amplifies all of his dark impulses.
In the post-credits scene, we see that Parker has finally come to terms with his dark side, and he’s now able to control the costume. He destruction of a tall building in New York City is also shown in the scene, which could foreshadow the events of The Avengers: Infinity War.
The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
After Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) defeats the Lizard (Rhys Ifans), he is seen volunteering at a soup kitchen with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). However, what fans didn’t know is that there was originally supposed to be a post-credits scene. In it, we would have seen Parker’s parents Richard (Campbell Scott) and Mary (Embeth Davidtz) alive and working for S.H.I.E.L.D. This scene was eventually cut from the film, but it can be found in the deleted scenes on the Blu-ray release.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) is the second instalment in the Amazing Spider-Man film series, and it features two post-credit scenes. The first scene shows Harry Osborn (played by Dane DeHaan) being visited by his father Norman (played by Chris Cooper), who is revealed to be the Green Goblin. The second scene features Aunt May (played by Sally Field) finding Peter Parker (played by Andrew Garfield) in his bedroom, and she tells him that she knows he is Spider-Man.
Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
Spider-Man: Homecoming features two post-credits scenes. The first shows Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) meeting with Mac Gargan (Michael Mando) in prison. Gargan asks Toomes about Spider-Man, and Toomes says he wants revenge.
The second scene shows Peter Parker (Tom Holland) meeting with Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) and Betty Brant (Angourie Rice). They discuss the events of the film and how they can tell others about Spider-Man. Betty suggests that they keep it a secret, and Ned agrees.
Why Are There So Many Post-Credit Scenes?
There are a lot of post-credit scenes in Spider-Man movies. Some people might think that this is because the movies are trying to be like Marvel comics, which often have post-credit scenes. However, there are other reasons why post-credit scenes are popular in Spider-Man movies.
To Set Up Future Movies
The most common reason for a post-credits scene is to set up a future movie. In the case of Spider-Man: Far From Home, the post-credits scenes both serve that function. The first shows Peter Parker (Tom Holland) uncovering a secret message from Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) that was hidden in his new Spider-Man suit. The second features Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio, who was apparently not killed at the end of the movie as we were led to believe, revealing his plan to frame Parker for his own crimes.
Both of these scenes tease what’s to come in future Spider-Man movies, and they also establish potential villains for those films. By including these scenes, the filmmakers are letting us know that there are more stories to be told in this franchise, and that they have big plans for the characters moving forward.
To Give Fans What They Want
Post-credit scenes are becoming increasingly commonplace in Hollywood blockbusters. There was a time not so long ago when you could safely leave your cinema seat as soon as the credits started to roll, safe in the knowledge that you had seen everything the film had to offer. Nowadays, however, it seems that more and more films are choosing to include bonus scenes during or after the credits, often teasing forthcoming sequels or providing additional character development.
So why have post-credit scenes become so popular? There are a number of reasons, but perhaps the most significant is that they offer filmmakers a chance to give fans exactly what they want. In an age of social media and online fandom, it has never been easier for audiences to voice their opinion on the movies they love (and hate). And what do fans always want more of? Their favorite characters, of course.
By including a post-credit scene, filmmakers can ensure that fans leave the cinema with a smile on their face, even if the film itself wasn’t quite what they were hoping for. It’s a way of saying “thank you” to the audience for their support, and it’s also a clever marketing strategy for drumming up excitement for future installments.
With all that said, not all post-credit scenes are created equal. Some are genuinely cool and unexpected, while others feel like little more than an afterthought. Here are just a few examples of post-credit scenes that have left audiences divided:
To Reward Loyal Fans
There are a number of reasons why filmmakers might choose to include a post-credit scene. In some cases, it may be a way to reward loyal fans who stick around until the very end of the credits. In other cases, it may be a way to tease a future installment in the franchise or to set up a spin-off film. Whatever the reason, post-credit scenes have become increasingly common in recent years.
Spider-Man is a good example of a franchise that makes use of post-credit scenes. To date, there have been six Spider-Man films released, and each one has included at least one post-credit scene. In some cases, these scenes have been used to tease future installments in the franchise (such as Spider-Man: Far From Home), while in other cases they have simply been fun little easter eggs for fans to enjoy (such as the scenes featuring Stan Lee).
So why are post-credit scenes so popular? There are a few potential reasons. For one thing, they can help to keep fans engaged with the franchise even after the credits have rolled. Additionally, they can generate buzz and excitement for future films or TV shows. And finally, they can simply be a fun way for filmmakers to interact with fans and give them something extra to enjoy.
What Do The Post-Credit Scenes Mean?
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, there are two scenes during the credits. The first shows Peter Parker (Tom Holland) home in his Queens apartment, eating a bowl of cereal as he watches a news report about the events of the film. The second scene is set in an undisclosed location, where a man (Michael Keaton) is seen meeting with somebody, discussing the potential of Spider-Man and what he could mean for the future.
They Hint at Future Storylines
Post-credit scenes are a pretty common thing in superhero movies these days. They usually take the form of a scene that takes place after the credits have started rolling, and they often hint at future storylines or tease upcoming movies in a franchise. In the case of Spider-Man: Homecoming, there are two post-credit scenes. The first one is a scene that takes place during the credits, and the second one is a traditional post-credit scene that comes after the credits have finished rolling.
The first post-credit scene in Spider-Man: Homecoming takes place during the credits, and it shows Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and his classmates on a field trip to the Avengers facility. While at the facility, they run into Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau), who tells them that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is busy and can’t see them. However, he does give them a tour of the facility. This scene is important because it sets up the events of Avengers: Infinity War, which is released next year.
The second post-credit scene in Spider-Man: Homecoming takes place after the credits have finished rolling, and it shows Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) AKA The Vulture, in prison. He is approached by Mac Gargan (Michael Mando), who asks him about Spider-Man’s identity. Toomes then tells Gargan to ask Tony Stark about it, which hints at the fact that Gargan will become The Scorpion in future movies.
They Introduce New Characters
The post-credit scene is a now-common movie tradition in which extra scenes are shown during or after the credits. These scenes can provide closure for the film, introduce new characters, or set up future films in a franchise. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is famous for its use of post-credit scenes, with almost every MCU movie featuring one (or sometimes even two) scenes during or after the credits.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is no different, with two post-credit scenes that both tease future movies in the MCU. The first scene takes place during the credits, and features Spider-Man (Tom Holland) stopping a convenience store robbery. The second scene, which takes place after the credits have finished rolling, features Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) talking to General “Thunderbolt” Ross (William Hurt) about bringing the Avengers back together.
These post-credit scenes are important because they introduce new characters and set up future movies. The first post-credit scene introducesSpider-Man’s adversary Shocker (Bokeem Woodbine), who will likely be a major antagonist in future Spider-Man movies. The second post-credit scene sets up The Avengers: Infinity War, which is due to be released in 2018.
They Tease Future Plot Points
Post-credit scenes are a staple in superhero movies. They almost always tease future plot points, whether it’s a sequel or something else entirely. Spider-Man: Homecoming has not one, not two, but FIVE post-credit scenes. That’s unprecedented for a Spider-Man movie, or any superhero movie for that matter.
The first post-credit scene shows Adrian Toomes (aka the Vulture) in prison. He’s contacted by Mac Gargan, who wants to know how Toomes was able to steal equipment from the Department of Damage Control. Toomes refuses to talk, but Gargan is undeterred. He says he’s going to ask around and see if anyone else knows anything.
The second post-credit scene is set in Thanos’ kingdom on Titan. Thanos is talking to his daughter Gamora about the Infinity Stones. He says that if he gets all six stones, he will be able to “balance the universe.”
The third post-credit scene is set in Wakanda. T’Challa and Shuri are discussing what they should do with the Winter Soldier (aka Bucky Barnes). Shuri says she can fix him, but T’Challa is hesitant because Barnes has killed people in the past. Ultimately, T’Challa decides to let Shuri try and help Barnes.
The fourth post-credit scene is set in an unknown location. A man is talking on the phone about how someone wants to meet with “the boss.” The boss turns out to be Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin, who is currently in prison. The man on the phone says the meeting will take place “soon.”
The fifth and final post-credit scene is set in New York City. A man named Ned Leeds walks into an alley and meets with Nick Fury. Fury asks Leeds if he wants to “come aboard” and help him with something called Slinger (which may be a reference to the Spider-Man character of the same name). Leeds agrees and the two shake hands before walking off into the night.
