As we learned before Captain Marvel hit theaters, the movie features two post-credits scenes, carrying on a fun tradition in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One of them ties directly to Avengers: Endgame, while the other is more inconsequential but fun nonetheless.


In the first scene, which happens midway through the credits, we find Black Widow, Captain America, War Machine, and Bruce Banner at the Avengers headquarters in upstate New York. The four of them watch on in horror as monitors show the death toll following the snap in Avengers: Infinity War.

The scene then reveals that they're in possession of Nick Fury's pager, which is hooked up to all kinds of gizmos in order to keep the signal active. But the pager soon falls silent, prompting even more panic among the remaining Avengers.

As the team tries to figure out how to get the pager back online, Black Widow remarks that she'd love to meet whoever Fury was calling. As the camera swings around, we soon find Captain Marvel standing in the Avengers headquarters.

"Where's Fury?" Captain Marvel asks.

Little does she know that Fury was turned to dust by Thanos, as has half of the universe, which may include some of Captain Marvel's Skrull friends, who she promised to help at the end of Captain Marvel.

It's unclear how much she knows about what happened in Avengers: Infinity War. Chances are, the mid-credits scene takes place early on in Avengers: Endgame and will bring her up to speed pretty quick.

The second scene happens after the credits are over, and focuses on Nick Fury's new "cat," Goose. Goose starts dry heaving after jumping onto Fury's desk, and just when we think he's going to cough up a hairball, out comes the Tesseract, which he swallowed earlier in the movie.

It's a fun scene, if a little gross, that doesn't have much impact on the MCU since we already know that Loki eventually gains possession of the Tesseract in 2012's The Avengers.

Captain Marvel

A solid, if predictable, balance of action and giggles.

Captain Marvel reaches out to every corner of the Cinematic Universe in an attempt to tie this new character into the whole series so far. But the movie struggles with classic prequel story mistakes while relying on a standard origin story format we've seen so many times already.
