Avengers Endgame – What After Endgame? No Credit Scene in Endgame: This is the first Marvel Studios movie without a mid-credits scene teasing what’s next, but there’s still a clue to examine.
[This story contains spoilers for Avengers: Endgame]
Since 2008’s Iron Man, every Marvel Studios movie has featured at least one scene after the credits teasing what’s to come. That is, until now.
Avengers: Endgame, which concludes the stories of some of the characters fans have been following over a 22-film arc, does not feature a post-credits scene. But there is something there. After the credits end, the screen goes dark, only to reveal the Marvel Studios logo backed by a ringing, metallic sound — like someone hammering something.
Is Marvel is trying to tell audiences something in a subtle way?
Perhaps that sound is someone forging a new hammer. The last time that we saw Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) hammer Mjolnir, Captain America (Chris Evans) was disappearing into the past with it. When he returned as an old man, Thor’s iconic weapon was nowhere to be seen. Could someone have been using, making, or adapting the cosmic tool? Loki (Tom Hiddleston) escaped with the Space Stone and is about to get his own Disney+ series, so that’s one possibility.
Another is Beta Ray Bill, the alien equivalent of Thor — and former Champion of Sakaar — who was created by comics legend Walt Simonson. Perhaps Beta Ray Bill has noticed the lack of worthy heroes in the universe and is making a weapon to help him take Odinson’s place. Or perhaps after making Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) the king of Asgard, Thor decides that she needs an epic weapon and is making her a hammer of her own.
Another option is that rather than this sound being in the future, it could be a sound from the past. After all, where did Captain America get that new shield for Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie)? His own shield was destroyed by Thanos (Josh Brolin). It’s possible that the sound we hear is someone forging that very shield.
Or what about Iron Man?
With Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) no longer there to take on the role of Iron Man, that space is open and the comic books have offered up multiple options who could take his place. In Invincible Iron Man Vol. 2 #7, readers were introduced to Riri Williams, a young and brilliant engineer who would take on the mantle before becoming her own hero known as Ironheart. If Marvel wanted to seed the next series of heroes, there’s a chance that they could bring Riri to the forefront, and perhaps the hammering sound was her creating her first suit after learning of the death of Tony Stark.
There is, of course, already James Rhodes (Don Cheadle), who held the mantle of Iron Man in the comics for quite a long while and would be the likely choice to replace Tony. In that case, perhaps the hammering sound was someone was making a new suit for Rhodey. Leaning into the idea of a new league of heroes, though, the person hammering away on this hypothetical suit could possibly be the leader of the original Young Avengers, Nathaniel Richards. The young hero took on the name of Iron Lad when he formed the team in the eponymous 2005 series.
Nathaniel is the son of Fantastic Four leaders Reed Richards and Sue Storm, characters that have been off limits for Marvel Studios until recently.
Now that the Disney-Fox merger has been completed, this hammering could be a way to hint at the inclusion of some of the previously untouchable characters that the MCU will use in the future. With Thanos now dead, Marvel will need a new big bad, and there are barely any bigger and badder than Doctor Victor Von Doom. In case you’re not too familiar with the Latverian royal, he’s probably best known as the main villain of the Fantastic Four. He sports an iconic suit of armor with a badass metal mask.
What if after the fall of the Avengers and all of their time meddling, Doom found his way to the core reality of the MCU and decided that it was the perfect time to take over their measly world? In that case, what audiences heard might’ve been the villain crafting his famous mask. It might seem outrageous but it would open the door to the Fantastic Four, who deserve to play a big part in the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Whatever the sound — which does sound notably similar to Tony forging his armor from the first film — Marvel is keeping fans guessing. If there’s one thing that Marvel has proven over the last decade, it’s that the studio rarely makes a choice which isn’t intentional, so don’t be surprised if the strange and unusual noise has big ramifications in the years to come.
Iron Man gets sentimental on his birthday “When the time is right, I’ll pay proper homage to the fallen..”
Robert Downey Jr. turned 55 on Saturday, April 4 but his birthday was not a very joyous occasion as the star shared a pretty emotional message about the people lost to corona virus.
Downey shared a picture of himself wearing a protective mask and gloves with the caption, “First off, thanx for all the b-day wishes, much appreciated..Like so many, our family has lost friends and relatives over the last several weeks. The (well advised) inability to congregate , grieve , mourn, celebrate in a natural way has been less than ideal..When the time is right, I’ll pay proper homage to the fallen..Meanwhile, I feel driven to think of some new ways of communicating with y’all—Maybe give voice to YOUR struggles and insights during this unprecedented time? Maya Angelou would have turned 92 today, and I couldn’t agree more with her wisdom on the matter. ‘There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.’ I’ll check back soon Until then, stay Safe, Optimistic, Vigilant, And maybe most importantly-Connected, RDJ.”
Social media was full of fans as well as celebrities wishing the star a very happy birthday.
Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, shared a lovely picture of the two posing in front of the Avengers sign. “Happy birthday to one of my absolute favorites! Love you 3000,@RobertDowneyJr,” he wrote.
He was also wished by Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He shared a cute black-and-white photo of him giving Downey a tight hug. “Sending you all the virtual hugs for your birthday, @RobertDowneyJr I love you to life, 3000. It’s an honor knowing such a generous and complex man,” he wrote.
Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye, shared a video of confetti flying across a room and wrote, “Happy birthday @robertdowneyjr big squeeze brother ! Love you.”
Downey also shared a picture of one of author Maya Angelou’s book on Instagram, with whom he shares his birthday. “If u don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude…” #mayaangelou #happybirthday #Poet #Activist 1928-2014 It’s an honor to share a birthday with this great #woman, and a necessity to express my #gratitude to the following— #Healthcare workers, Personal care and home health aides, First responders, Anyone in an active service job, As well as law enforcement, the National Guard,all Armed Services,etc… Anyone braving exposure in the #service of others— Proudly, RDJ,” he wrote.
Downey’s last outing as Iron Man was 2019’s Avengers: Endgame but there are rumours that he will be seen as Tony Stark again i n upcoming Scarlett Johansson-starrer Black Widow.

Priyanka Chopra says, “loves to do more action movies”
WHEN IT COMES TO TAKING UP NEW CHALLENGES NOTHING IS HOLDING PIGGY CHOPS BACK!
OUR DESI GIRL IS AN INSPIRATION FOR MANY YOUNGSTERS AS SHE IS FIERCE AND BELIEVES IN “MAKING WINE OUT OF LEMONS!” ( TURNING DIFFICULT SITUATIONS IN YOUR FAVOUR)
RECENTLY IN AN INTERVIEW P.C GAVE US ANOTHER REASON FOR BEING HAILED AS A “BOSS LADY”
SHE DOES HER OWN STUNTS AND HER FANS HAVE SEEN HER FLAWLESS ACTION IN QUANTICO (SEASON 1 & 2) AND DON FRANCHISE!
CHOPRA ARTICULATED HER VIEWS ABOUT HOW FASCINATING SHE FINDS THE ACTION GENRE, AS SHE WENT ON TO SAY: “I have always done my own stunts. I trust my body immensely. I am as athletic as a person. I just really enjoy action movies. I have done them in ”Don” and ”Quantico”. I hope to do more of them,”
NOT JUST THIS BUT FORMER MISS WORLD GAVE AN IMPRESSIVE REALITY CHECK IN CONJUNCTION WITH HER STIRRING GENDER NEUTRAL VIEWS:
The genre is generally seen as a hero”s domain.
“I am someone who believes in a gender-neutral world. I hope in my lifetime we reach a place where we say movies instead of female-centric movies, we say directors instead of female directors, we say athletes instead of female athletes,” said the former Miss World.
“I hope my children don’t have to worry about the fact that ”this is an Indian female cricket team or Indian female movie”. We don’t say ”it is a male-centric movie, so let”s go and watch it”. So why do we have to say that it”s a female (centric movie)? I hope that happens and I am seeing it more and more as the conversation… where girls are coming out of their shells, and parents are supporting in finding their own feet. My parents supported me in all my dreams and ambitions,” said Priyanka.
She has many projects in her kitty, including a superhero movie titled “We Can Be Heroes”. Will the audience get to see her as a superhero?
“I can’t tell you that but it”s a kid’s superhero movie by Robert Rodriguez. Do you know ”Spy Kids”? This (”We Can Be Heroes”) is in that world a little bit, and a lot of amazing actors have come together to tell the story. It will be really fun,”
WE ARE IN AWE WITH HER EFFORTLESSLY BEAUTIFUL YET STRONG OPINIONS AND ACTIONS! SHE IS DEFINITELY ONE OF THOSE CELEBRITIES WHO HAS STURDY PRINCIPLES WHICH IS ULTIMATELY REFLECTEDDD IN THEIR WORK. WE ARE EAGERLY WAITING FOR HER UPCOMING MOVIES AND ANYTHING THAT P.C HAS TO OFFER!
Good News: The return of Robert Downey Jr. is now confirmed!
Yep, you read that right; rumors revolving around the possible cameo of Robert Downey Jr. in the upcoming Black Widow movie have got all of our hopes up.
Just remembering the scenes of Avengers: End game, that snap, that ending, and Tony’s last words still bring fresh tears to all Marvel fans’ eyes. But now it seems that our beloved might just grace us with his scene in Scarlett Johnson’s starrer Black widow.
For those wondering, if this is an indication of a kind of rebirth of Iron Man, then I am sorry to douse your hopes because it isn’t. Technically, the movie is set in times before the End game, hence before all the painful and heartbreaking deaths and drifting apart of the Avengers. Tony Stark, is thus alive, humorous and rich as ever and may just be seen on the screens again, after the final goodbyes he bade in Avengers: End game.
So sit tight (indoors!), wait (it’s not like any of us is too busy these days) and hope that we see our hero in action again.
