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.
Hanna Actress Esme Creed-Miles Would Hide In Her Locker Room, Here’s Why
Esme Creed-Miles feels it is fun to get into the skin of a character without relating to it on any level. The “Hanna” star says it is a privilege that actors enjoy, and she cherishes that escape.
“It is really fun as an actor to be someone who you don’t really relate to,” Esme told IANS when asked if she could relate to her character from the series “Hanna”.
“I mean, that’s what is wonderful about (acting). We have the privilege of doing (that). I don’t feel that I (relate to the character in a lot of ways), but that’s not really an issue for me. I really enjoy that escape and that ability to create things from out of nothing,” she added.
Esme is the daughter of actors Samantha Morton and Charlie Creed-Miles. She got her big break with the web series in 2019.
Looking back at getting the role, she said: “It was a fantastic opportunity for a young actress. I mean, it’s a real dream role. I never really thought I would get it. I was familiar with the film, I loved the film, and I just thought it would be such a cool opportunity. I just thought it would be fun. And that was the main attraction for me.”
The show spins a new world from the story of Joe Wright’s acclaimed 2011 film of the same name. British writer-producer David Farr, who co-wrote the original feature film, is driving the narrative of the show, which will be back with its second season on July 3.
With a cast led by Esme, Mireille Enos, and Joel Kinnaman, the first season of “Hanna” narrated the story of a young girl named Hanna, who has lived in a forest and has gained extraordinary physical abilities. It is about her experience with modern reality. It explored the dynamics of a father-daughter bond, emotional issues of a family while highlighting the dilemma of how teenagers grow in the modern world and do they ever fit in.
The eight-episode second season follows the journey of Hanna as she evades the pursuit of a “sinister government agency”, and embarks on a journey of self-discovery.
For Esme, her stint in the show and the physical challenge that came with it turned out to be empowering.
Reflecting on her past, she said: “Like growing up, I was like the kid who would hide in a locker room if sport was happening. I hated it. I was like, this tiny little weakling. And when I got this part, all my mates were like, ‘how are you gonna do that?’ And I ended up getting really strong. And I found that really empowering to actually like, ‘I can do push ups’… That’s crazy to me. And after doing season one, I really kept up with the training and was impressed. It has been really wonderful.”
The young actress is glad to get appreciated for her show.
“The reception has been fantastic and I’m very grateful for that. I tend not to, although I’m bad at this, but I try not to go on my social media… so I don’t really interact very much with (netizens), but I think the reception has been great and anyone who does enjoy the show and is a fan of it, I’m super grateful for them and their engagement with it.”
The second season, which also stars Yasmin Monet Prince, Dermot Mulroney and Anthony Welsh, will launch on July 3 on Amazon Prime Video.
