The SAG-AFTRA strike has ended just in time for the premiere of The Marvels, the final MCU movie of the year. While there is no direct connection between the strike and the movie, it does allow Marvel to resume work on Deadpool 3 and future projects that will lead to the Avengers' Multiverse Saga. The post-credits scenes in The Marvels also provide exciting developments for the overarching story.
Linking to Avengers: Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars
The post-credits scenes in The Marvels help connect the movie to two important developments we can expect in the future: Avengers: Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. The following contains big spoilers, so proceed with caution.
Leaked Plot and Credit Scenes
Like many Phase 4 and 5 movies, the plot and credit scenes for The Marvels leaked before the film's premiere. Marvel even made changes to one of the credit scenes, but those changes were leaked as well. Social media users will have no trouble finding leaked footage.
Teasing the Young Avengers
The plot leak suggests that The Marvels will tease the formation of the Young Avengers, a team of superpowered teenagers. Various rumors in the past have hinted at a Young Avengers movie or TV show, and The Marvels continues to introduce and tease these young superheroes. Kamala Khan, one of the protagonists in the movie, might play a crucial role in assembling the team.
Ms. Marvel's Connection to Kate Bishop and Scott Lang
In the post-credits scene, Ms. Marvel visits Kate Bishop and asks if she knows that Scott Lang has a daughter named Cassie. This interaction suggests that Ms. Marvel has learned from Nick Fury and accessed his files on young superheroes. This scene sets up the Young Avengers team, but it's unclear when we'll see them in action.
The X-Men's Arrival in the MCU
The Marvels practically confirms that the X-Men are coming to the MCU in Phases 5 and 6. The movie has two amazing cameos in the credits scene, which was subject to last-minute changes. Monica Rambeau finds herself stranded in an alternate reality and wakes up in a medical facility that is part of the X-Men mansion. She encounters a version of Captain Marvel and Kelsey Grammer's Beast from Fox's X-Men movies. This suggests that the old X-Men will be joining the MCU.
The post-credits scenes in The Marvels provide exciting teases for the future of the MCU. While the Young Avengers and X-Men are on the horizon, fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Deadpool 3. With the SAG-AFTRA strike now over, Marvel can hopefully resume shooting soon.
