The final scene or teaser for the next film has become a staple of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is that extra little moment that has been driving fans crazy since Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) appeared at the end of the first Iron Man. Well Bleeding Cool’s Brendon Connelly got an exclusive tip on Thor: The Dark World's end credit scene. The bad part is that Thor’s director, Alan Taylor, is not happy with it. Marvel uber producer Kevin Feige spoke about the scene as well. 

Moviefone has also posted an exclusive clip from the up coming film. Check that out below. 

Here is the interview from Bleeding (read the piece here).

BC: So, while we’re talking about this film’s connections to the rest of the Marvel universe I have to ask, did you shoot the tag at the end?
AT: By tag do you mean the middle thing, the one in the middle of the credits?
BC: I mean the one in the middle.
AT: I absolutely did not. I am very happy to not take responsibility.
BC: So was that James Gunn?
AT: I wouldn’t blame it on James Gunn.
BC: Blame?
AT: Er… I wouldn’t attribute it to James Gunn… it’s clearly his sets and his characters…
BC: So you’re not quite comfortable with it?
AT: I am very happy not to take responsibility for that…
BC: It’s a different tone for sure, huh?
AT: It’s a different tone. I would have shot it differently. But I think it’s cool that it reaches out and touches that other universe. That universe is coming. The Guardians universe is really cool and wacky… but that sequence in the credits, I would say, is the only part of the movie where I’m happy to give the credit away…
Connelly then spoke with Feige:
A little surprised by this reaction, and definitely unclear as to who exactly had directed the scene, for sure, I spoke to Kevin Feige about it afterwards. Here’s another chat excerpt, this time between Feige and myself.
BC: I spoke to Alan a little bit about the mid-credit sequence and he said he didn’t shoot it but he wouldn’t say who did.
KF: James Gunn.
BC: And very recently, or..?
KF: Relatively recently. Within the last three or four weeks.

 no I will not watch any more clips, I will try hard not to and just wait for the movie.

I understand directors being very protective of their works but this is just an after credit scene. He should've just said it wasn't his and left it at that.

Anyway no big deal IMO but that GOTG tease has me excited

I don't get it why director's get pissed at this kind of stuff. When they sign up with Marvel Studios, I'm sure this should expect this.

Favreau. Branagh, etc... None were pleased of tying in with Avengers or post credits.

This is phase 2. You would think Taylor would have expected this.

I'm not even going to read this article because I'm at my saturation point. I don't want to know anymore about the movie until I see it.

Higgy 10/24/2013 11:17:24 AM

I don't get it.  First Alan Taylor says he wouldn't blame it on James Gunn.  Then Feige says that it WAS James Gunn.  So wtf...?

WarCry 10/25/2013 10:52:29 AM

 I think Mr. Taylor may have just found out what it takes to be taken off the list of future projects.

You simply don't badmouth stuff that your employer is doing, not even in a backhanded fashion like this.


Higgy, the point is that Feige is happy with the post-credits scene, and he's happy with the work Gunn did for it and thinks Gunn SHOULD be recognized for it. Taylor threw a bit of a temper tantrum then tried to back-pedal so it didn't look like he was putting the blame on Gunn.

He probably thought it was way out of place to have in his movie, and the fact he probably had no say in it's placement is what has him a little annoyed by it.  It's pretty obvious now that it's a GoTG clip, which is cool, and he sorta acknowledges the coolness of connecting the universes but he seems to think the style is lacking or way out there or something, he doesn't approve, oh well, he probably won't be invited back to direct any more marvel films is he's gonna be like that and then talk about it to the press!

wish 10/25/2013 10:59:30 AM

But he should revise his statements regarding where he's comfortable giving credit away, afterall if the film is a hit he'll have to give a huge amount of credit to Joss Whedon for flying in and re-writing at least 3 key scenes, and according to some inside sources, those re-writes may have saved the film!
