Writer and director James Gunn has revealed that Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 will have five post-credits scenes.


Director James Gunn, who recently announced that he’ll be returning to the franchise to direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, confirmed on Twitter that there are not one, not four, but five post-credits scenes in the sequel to his 2014 hit. Four of these will play during the closing credits, with one final scene reserved for the very end. The scenes are said to be mostly fun, while a couple point toward future scenarios.

Details about what those post-credits scenes are will remain under embargo until reviews are released next week, but various critics did tweet out that fans of the series should pay close attention to each scene as it pertains to either what they just saw or the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As the Marvel universe inches closer to “Avengers: Infinity War,” which is set to bring many of the introduced superheroes together to battle big bad Thanos over the coveted Infinity Stones, we can expect more of the post-credits scenes to be devoted to expanding or filling in connections in the lead up to the battle.

Gunn's upcoming sequel will not only sport the most post-credit scenes of any Marvel movie to date, but, according to the director, will also boast the "biggest visual effect of all time". 

Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is written and directed by James Gunn and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, featuring Vin Diesel as Baby Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, Tommy Flanagan, Laura Haddock, with Sylvester Stallone, and Kurt Russell. Kevin Feige is producing, and Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jonathan Schwartz, Nikolas Korda and Stan Lee are the executive producers.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 blasts into theaters on May 5.
