This post contains NO spoilers for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. We’re not talking about what may or may not be in the movie’s post-credits scenes at all. We only inform you if there is are any in the first place. So you are good.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever lasts 161 minutes. Not quite “forever”, but a fairly long blockbuster. You may need to use the facilities immediately after its conclusion. But of course, this is a Marvel movie we’re talking about, and Marvel movies almost always have a post-credits scene (or several) setting up future movies and TV series. And you don’t want to miss them.
So here’s the deal. At least at the press screenings Disney has been hosting in recent weeks, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever contains only one (1) post-credits scene. It takes place immediately after the main closing credits; just before the lengthy exploration of the names of the hundreds of cast and crew members who worked on the film. There is (again, at least in the version screened for reviewers) no second scene or teaser at the very end of the credits. The credits roll, the Marvel logo appears, and that’s it.
If you’re curious: Every Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to date has had at least one mid-credits or post-credits scene. The only exception: Avengers: Endgame, which was treated as a more definitive conclusion to the first three phases of the MCU. (Now known as “The Infinity Saga.”) Of the seven films in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (aka the first part of “The Multiverse Saga”), five titles had two credits scenes – Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Eternals, Spider-Man: No Coming Home, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnessand Thor: Love and Thunder – while wakanda forever and Black Widow each had one.
What does that mean? We have no idea. Marvel rarely explains the thinking behind these kinds of decisions. But now you’re ready to enjoy the last moments of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever with confidence and with minimal concern for your bladder.
