‘Iron Man 3’ Post Credits Cameo Revealed
By now we all know to sit through the credits of a Marvel movie. The post credit scene is one (or two) of the great joys of visiting the Marvel cinematic universe (besides all the other stuff). So who is turning up at the end of ‘Iron Man 3?’
BIG SPOILER AFTER THE BREAK.
But the end credits… I could NOT believe the studio signed off on tacking something like this to the end of a comedy. If this had been at the end of Oliver Stone’s upcoming Wall Street 2 I wouldn’t have batted an eye, and it would have been very appropriate. But you’d think with a comedy they want people to walk out laughing and happy to recommend it to others – this will leave people walking out most likely angry, regardless of whether one is on the Left or the Right (for different reasons, I would think).
Oh, they try to salvage a final laugh with an after the credits scene with Wahlberg and Ferrell, but the joke isn’t funny – even less so with the mood that what came before puts people in.
It’s one of the most bizarre and illogical choices in a film that I’ve ever seen.
I could not agree more. I basically enjoyed The Other Guys, but the ending credits were just straight up weird.
I spoke a little bit about this in my review. Put very succinctly here.
You know how sometimes when the credits roll for a show
The actors names will be listed and then a random actor who is in the regular cast gets credited as “so and so” as “this character,” like what is that even about. Why are they so special that they need a specific shout out. For example I just watched Party Down and at the end of the episode the credits ran and then the very last name was “Lizzy Caplan as Casey,” why did they need to do that. They didn’t say anyone elses character name. I just want to know why.
It has to do with notoriety and contracts. The “and this person” at the end of the credits is a special position given by the producers that the actor negotiates for in their contract. It’s just a little ego boost really to give a nod to someone.
