Black Widow end-credits scene: Florence Pugh on what that post-credits scene means

WARNING: This article contains full spoilers for Black Widow.

The final moments of Black Widow were a little emotional. Natasha (Scarlett Johansson) jetted off to find Captain America (Chris Evans) and save her fellow Avengers, bridging the gap between Civil War and the events of Avengers Infinity War – but that was the final adventure the hero ever went on. Fast-forward to the post-credits scene of Black Widow – which takes place long after Avengers Endgame – and Yelena (Pugh) was shown visiting Natasha’s grave.

The headstone – which read Daughter, Sister, Avenger – soon became a little crowded when Yelena was joined by her new employer, Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus).

Valentina started speaking about business and revealed that Yelena’s next target would be Hawkeye / Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner). 

This bombshell essentially teases the plot of the Disney Plus TV show Hawkeye.

Yelena actor Pugh recently spoke out about this dramatic ending, first saying she “didn’t know” she was going to be involved in a post-credits scene.

She went on to confirm: “[Yelena] is going to continue what she’s good at, and despite her sister not being there, she’s back working.”

Pugh continued: “If you look at her costume, and you look at the way that she’s dressed herself, it shows someone that’s flourishing.

“So to me, it was just really wonderful to kind of jump ahead and see she has been surviving.”

However, the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s newest addition added: “But, of course, it sets up a whole different challenge – which is Natasha’s fighting partner [Hawkeye].”

The upcoming Disney series will presumably pit Yelena up against Hawkeye over the death of Natasha.

Pugh also spoke about filming the post-credits scene – which came as quite a shock to her.

She recalled: “I was doing scenes again with Scarlett, and being strapped to her on various machines, and us giggling again

“And then the following week, I was at her grave! It was quite shocking to fast-forward that quickly.

“But wonderful to have only seen Scarlett the week previous. I think it would have been sadder if it had been many, many months later.”

Black Widow has already been deemed a huge success by Disney.

The Marvel film reportedly took home a staggering $ 158 million over the first weekend globally.

This is great news for Yelena, who will most likely continue her time on the big screen.

Black Widow is in cinemas now and available on Disney Plus with Premier Access.

The Suicide Squad post-credits: Is there a scene after the credits? James Gunn speaks out

In July this year, The Suicide Squad is going to continue the journey began by David Ayer in 2016. This time around, however, the franchise is receiving a soft reboot with James Gunn at the helm and a collection of new characters – as well as a handful of returning ones.

Is there a scene after the credits in The Suicide Squad?

WARNING: The Suicide Squad spoilers ahead.

The Guardians of the Galaxy creator has been very vocal about his upcoming film on Twitter and most recently revealed some details about the scene which takes place after the credits have rolled.

Gunn wrote to his 900k Twitter followers: “I find it disconcerting at times that many folks seem more interested in crossovers, cameos, references and post-credit scenes than they do the actual story & characters of a specific film!

“When making a film I spend 99.9 percent of my time thinking about story and character and .1 percent the rest.”

In response to this, a fan asked: “Is this an implicit confirmation that Suicide Squad won’t have a post-credit scene, or am I thinking too much?”

To which, Gunn replied: “It DOES have a post-credit scene. I love them. I think they give the audience a reason to sit through all the folks who worked so hard on the show.”

Gunn went on to add: “But they’re always an afterthought, a snack, not the main course.”

The director then summed up his thoughts by saying: “You can have good characters without a good story but there’s no such thing as a good story without good characters. It’s not possible.”

This will not be the first time the creative has indulged in post-credits scenes, after utilising them in his Marvel movies previously.

The final moments after the credits rolled in Guardians of the Galaxy introduced Howard the Duck after Knowhere was destroyed.

Gunn also included a post-credits scene in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.

In this sequel, the director included five post-credits scenes, all of which had their own parts in the universe.

On top of some fun inclusions with teenage Groot and Miley Cyrus, the scene with the biggest impact was the reveal of the next potential Guardians of the Galaxy foe.

In the scene, Elizabeth Debicki’s Ayesha creates a new figurehead of the Sovereign race.

Ayesha concludes the scene by announcing: “I think I will call him Adam.”

This is most likely Adam Warlock, one of the legendary Marvel Comics villains who is renowned for taking on the Guardians.

The Suicide Squad hits cinemas on July 30, 2021.

The Guardians of the Galaxy films are available on Disney Plus now.

In The Heights post-credits scene: Does In The Heights have an after credit song?

Today marks the release day of In the Heights, a musical based on a Broadway show which was originally penned and composed by Lin-Manuel Miranda. The star is best known for creating Hamilton, the other hit Broadway show, which saw a release on Disney Plus in 2020. The film tells the compelling story of Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), his goals and the tight-nit community around him that supports him at every turn.

Is there a scene after the credits in In the Heights?

WARNING: In the Heights spoilers ahead.

Yes, there is a post-credits scene during In the Heights.

The film’s post-credit scene continues the rivalry between Miranda’s character Piraguero and Christopher Jackson’s character Mr Softee.

Earlier in the film, Piraguero became frustrated when the youth of Washington Heights opted to buy ice cream rather than his delectable piragua.

A sense of gentrification was felt throughout the film, as the residents of the Heights were priced out of their own neighbourhood. This theme was exemplified with the arrival of ice cream over piragua.

But Piraguero got the last laugh in the post-credits scene,

During the extra scene, Mr Softee’s ice cream truck is shown broken down leaving his business in disarray.

The added scene at the end of In the Heights acts as a reprise for the character, and the song.

Miranda executive produced the film after creating every aspect of the stage show in the early 2000s.

Speaking about why he wrote the show in the first place, the artist revealed: “I wrote [the first draft of In the Heights] on a winter break [from college]. I didn’t sleep. My long-term girlfriend went abroad.

“So suddenly, I had all this time, and all this angst, which are two of the ingredients you need the most when you’re 19 years old.”

Miranda went on: “I think that was a big part of me being able to access more of myself in my writing.

“Everything I’d written prior to then kind of sounded like [Rent creator] Jonathan Larson, kind of musical theater-ish, rock-ish stuff.”

The singer and songwriter added: “But I didn’t bring any of my culture to it or any of my heritage to it.”

In the Heights is out now in cinemas.
