Ever since Samuel L. Jackson first bowed onto the big screen in the post-credits scene of Iron Man back in 2008, these scenes have been staples of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sure, films had used them in the past, but never before had they been used so extensively. Now, with every big blockbuster that hits — Marvel or not — the big question is usually not whether or not a film has a post-credits scene, but how MANY it has.

Such is the case for Avengers: Infinity War. As the big film of the entire universe, it’s pretty much guaranteed that it was going to have one. There has been some buzz about the Russos originally not wanting a post-credits scene (I’ve read that interview, and I think that headline is fabricated based on what little the director say), but we knew there would be one.

So how many does it have? Will it pull a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and have FIVE post-credits scenes, or go with the more standard two?

Based on the screenings that critics have had a chance to see, it looks like they’re sticking with one. There is something a bit poetic about it, as it mirrors Iron Man in its number, but it’s still unclear if that’s what audiences will be seeing in the actual theaters. In the past, studios have pulled back on some post-credits scenes for the press.

Luckily, the film is only a couple short days from release, with most hardcore fans already having their tickets ready to go for Thursday night, so it won’t be long before we’ll know if the press were indeed deprived of a scene or two. Will you be seeing it this Thursday? Let us know down below!
