Following the first screenings of The Marvels, the new MCU film was confirmed to have a surprising number of post-credits scenes.

Critics have officially seen Marvel Studio's latest release via early screenings, giving The Marvels a wide array of reviews on both the positive and negative sides of the spectrum.

With only a 1 hour and 45 minutes of runtime, which marks the shortest runtime in the MCU's 15-year history, many are already wondering what's in store for the classic MCU post-credits moments that will drive the overarching story forward.

How Many Post-Credits Scenes Does The Marvels Have?

Marvel Studios held the world premiere event for The Marvels on Tuesday, November 7, with the screening confirming how many post-credits scenes are in the MCU sequel.

According to Matt Ramos via his X page, The Marvels only has one post-credits scene. Specifically, it takes place after the initial animated main-on-end title sequence but before the black-background full credits.

This comes as a surprising bit of news considering that seven of the first nine MCU films in the Multiverse Saga had two post-credits scenes, which was also the case throughout most of the Infinity Saga.

The last MCU film to use only one post-credits scene was 2022's Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which was in an unprecedented position due to Chadwick Boseman and T'Challa's deaths being honored during the end of the sequel.

How Important Will The Marvels' Post-Credits Scene Be?

Considering how pivotal Brie Larson's role as Captain Marvel is in the grand scheme of the Multiverse Saga, many are expecting The Marvels' post-credits scene to be fairly important to the MCU's future.

Rumors have also pointed to this film being a major stepping stone towards what will happen in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, further lending credence to the idea that this new post-credits moment will be a game-changing one.

For the time being, fans wait to find out how Carol Danvers and her two new co-stars, Monica Rambeau and Kamala Khan, will deal with their power entanglement problem and the threat that Zawe Ashton's Dar-Benn poses to the universe.

And with some unexpected MCU characters joining the fray as well, this sequel won't be short on thrills and excitement even with its shorter runtime and fewer post-credits scenes than usual for the franchise.

The Marvels debuts in theaters on Friday, November 10.
