In another interview with Entertainment Weekly both Joss Whedon (Director of Avengers: Age of Ultron) and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige have both confirmed that there will not be a post-credits scene like the infamous shawarma scene from the first movie. “There will be a tag” says Kevin Feige, “but there’s not a post-post-credit scene”. Whedon continues by saying “There’s nothing at the very end. And that’s not a fake out… We want people to know so they don’t sit there for 10 minutes and then go: ‘Son of a bitch! I’ll kill them!'”
Kevin Feige also confirmed that Captain Marvel will NOT be in the movie and would not comment on who both Julie Delpy and Linda Cardellini will be playing. Feige did say that there is a secret female character but “It’s not a big deal. But it’s a good character”
