Anyone who’s seen a Marvel movie knows you have to stay behind to watch the end scene after the credits. It’s basically an unspoken rule that you have to do it. Keeping with tradition, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 did not disappoint with it’s credit scene. Usually, the end scenes relate to the movie in some way; connecting characters or plot lines, tying loose ends or foreshadowing future events. But, this one was a little different.
According to sources at Variety, the only reason that this scene took place after the movie is because:
Spider-Man director Marc Webb had an existing contract with Fox Searchlight to helm another film following 2009′s 500 (Days) of Summer. After The Amazing Spider-Man in 2012, Webb’s negotiations briefly stalled with Sony as he was caught in a tug-of-war with Fox. Eventually, Fox agreed to allow Webb to direct Sony’s Spider-Man sequel, but only if Sony would promote its X-Men film for free. (…) That said, some U.K. fans who saw The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on opening day were confused, wondering if it meant a single X-Men and Spider-Man movie is being planned. That’s not happening.
So, I guess that’s that! Whether the crossover ever happens or not, the scene is cool nonetheless! The scene is based in the 1970’s and features Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) kicking ass and taking names while she’s accompanied by Havok (Lucas Till) and Toad (Evan Jonigkeit).
