Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Will Have A Post-Credits Scene

Be sure to stick around after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Director James Gunn confirmed Saturday that the film will have a post credits scene, and, according to him, it's going to be pretty epic. Gunn, responding to a question from a fan on Twitter, wrote, "All I'll say is, unless you have to rush out because your mother is dying, stay through the entire end credits."

The first Guardians of the Galaxy used its post-credits scene as a clever send-up to Marvel history, showing Howard the Duck, a character notably featured in Marvel's 1986 cult hit of the same name. However, with Vol. 2 being one of the films currently helping Marvel build towards Avengers: Infinity War, its possible that the post-credits scene could have to do with something more nefarious this time around. (Could this potentially be when big bad Thanos drops by?)

Here is the full synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: "Set to the backdrop of 'Awesome Mixtape #2,' Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team's adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill's true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes' aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand."

Vol. 2, set to be released on May 5, is said to be "deeper" and "funnier" than the original, while also giving complete story arcs to the film's supporting characters, who include Vin Diesel's Baby Groot and Pom Klementieff's newly introduced Mantis. The movie, which also stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, and Kurt Russell, is set to be released May 5.
