While almost every Marvel Studios movie packs a post-credits scene, the streaming shows on Disney Plus have been less consistent on the inclusion of these last-minute teases.
With Loki episode six hitting Disney Plus today, many fans are wondering if it will contain a tease for one of the MCU’s upcoming projects, from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness to Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
As it turns out, the episode does have an added bonus, but it might not be quite what you’re expecting.
Read on for everything you need to know about Loki post-credits scenes but beware – spoilers lurk below the jump.
Loki episode 6: Is there a post-credits scene?
Well, kind of. While the jaw-dropping cliffhanger ending of Loki episode six certainly warrants a full-length post-credits scene, what we get is more of a stylish announcement than anything contributing to the narrative.
After the lavishly designed credits sequence, ends we cut to a close up shot of the TVA’s file on Loki Laufeyson, which is promptly stamped.
The bright red print reads: “Loki will return in season 2”.
From there, the credits continue and there is no second scene at the very end, meaning we have a long time to wait before finding answers to the questions left hanging in the Loki season one finale – including what’s next for Kang The Conquerer.
Loki episode 5: Is there a post-credits scene?
Alas, no – after the heights of last week’s amazing final twist, the latest (and penultimate) series episode has no post-credits scene to tease what’s coming next. Still, never fear – we’re almost certain the finale will feature some extra hints about what’s coming up. Surely something has to be teased about Kang the Conqueror or Kid Loki and the Young Avengers, anyway…
Loki episode 4: Is there a post-credits scene?
Yes! And it was massively plot-centric, so if you missed it, go back and watch it right now.
In the scene, after being “pruned” and apparently removed from existence, Tom Hiddleston’s Loki variant wakes up in a strange, desolate place. He wonders if he’s in Hel – but if he is, he has some company.
Specifically, that company is him. Well, new (or old) versions of him, played by Richard E Grant, Jack Veal and DeObia Oparei, who ask him to come with them if he wants to survive. Grant’s Loki variant is older, wearing the character’s classic comic-book costume, while Oparei’s looks more of a warrior, carrying a hammer a little like his brother Thor’s. Meanwhile, “Kid Loki” seems to be holding onto a giant lizard for some reason, who might… also be a Loki. He certainly has his own set of mini-horns.
So where are they exactly? Who are these Loki variants, how long have they been there and what are they planning? And are other “pruned” people secretly in this world as well?
So far, we have more questions than answers but hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to find out the truth.
Loki episode 3: Is there a post-credits scene?
Unfortunately on this occasion, there is no post-credits scene – meaning we’re still waiting for the first one of the series.
When the credits start rolling we do get a glimpse of some files about ‘apocalyptic events’ and some shots of Loki and Sylvie working together, but there is nothing more substantial than that.
Episode two similarly lacked a post-credits sting, though the first episode of Loki offered if not a full-blown scene then a little bonus for fans – in the final few seconds of the credits in the Loki premiere, Miss Minutes is heard repeating a comment from earlier in the episode: “Thanks for visiting the TVA. Don’t hesitate to let us know how we’re doing!”
Of course despite the lack of end-credits scenes so far, that hasn’t stopped fans from looking for clues after the episode has finished – and indeed this is what led to the original rumours about Sophia Di Martino’s character being named Sylvie, after the name was spotted in the Spanish credits of Loki’s second episode.
