Madame Web: how many post-credits scenes does it have?

If you’re coming into the weekend without any idea about who the title character of Madame Web is, then you’re not alone. For all of the barbs that The Marvels got – and we’ve fired a few ourselves – the three characters at the center of that movie at least had the benefit of having two headliners between them. Not one of the main characters in Madame Web has ever held down an ongoing comic book series, least of all Dakota Johnson’s Cassandra Web.

But for any comic book movie fans who just have to know about the future of Sony’s Spider-Man Universe – aka the movies that don’t actually feature Spider-Man – then we can tell you right now how many post-credits scenes that Madame Web has.

How many post-credits scenes does Madame Web have?

None. There’s nothing at the mid-credits or the post-credits, so you can run for the exit as soon as the credits roll. Although you may want to leave sooner than that. But consider this post as your clairvoyant vision of the future, which will allow you to stop yourself from losing 116 minutes of your life that you’ll never get back. Why should you pay money to see a film that will probably be on Netflix by this summer?

Why doesn’t Madame Web have any post-credits scenes?

Warning: There are spoilers ahead for Madame Web!

It’s probably because the entire movie is basically a pre-credits scene to some Spider-Woman movie we’ll never see. The film is set in 2003, and it features Cassandra as a young paramedic as opposed to the paralyzed, blind old woman that she is in the comics. After Cassandra gains her power to see the future, she uses her ability to protect Julia Cornwall (Sydney Sweeney), Mattie Franklin (Celeste O’Connor), and Anya Corazon (Isabela Merced) from a bad guy named Ezekiel Sims (Tahar Rahim), who wears a Spirit Halloween knockoff version of Spider-Man’s black costume.

Ezekiel has prophetic powers of his own, and he’s seen that these three young women will become Spider-heroes in the future and kill him. That’s why he’s trying to murder them in 2003. The only time that Julia, Mattie, and Anya appear in costume as Spider-Woman, Spider-Woman, and Araña is in brief flash-forward. If you’ve seen them suit up in the trailers, that’s all you’ll see of their alter egos in this film.

If that’s not enough Spider-Verse adjacent action for you, Adam Scott appears as Peter Parker’s beloved Uncle Ben Parker, one of Cassandra’s EMT co-workers. Ben’s sister-in-law and Peter’s mother, Mary Parker (Emma Roberts), is pregnant in this movie, but the film doesn’t actually say that her unborn son is Peter.

Is Madame Web connected to Tom Holland’s MCU Spider-Man?

Although Sony would love for fans to believe that the Peter Parker alluded to in this film is the one who grew up to be played by Tom Holland, it’s probably not going to happen. Sony has control over all of the Spider-Man supporting characters on the big screen. But as long as Sony and Marvel are sharing custody of Holland’s MCU Spider-Man, then it’s less likely that any of this will ever be referenced in a future Spider-Man movie.

If Madame Web‘s projected $20 million six-day opening projection holds, then it could bomb harder than Morbius. Just so we’re clear, that’s far below the mark where any sequel could possibly happen.

Madame Web is now playing in theaters, but probably not for long.

Does Blue Beetle have a post-credits scene?
Blue Beetle unleashes his wings in a still from Blue Beetle.

Since Iron Man arrived in 2008, superhero movies have usually featured a mid-credits scene, a post-credits scene, or both. It's become a tradition for superhero flicks, although there are still a few films that try to ignore that expectation. Without giving too much away, Blue Beetle does embrace that superhero tradition. And the scene in question sets up a potential sequel that could completely upend the life of the new Blue Beetle, Jaime Reyes (Xolo Maridueña), as well as the film's secondary protagonist, Jenny Kord  (Bruna Marquezine).

So the short answer is "yes," you should stick around when the credits roll on Blue Beetle. But you may not want to stay all the way to the very end of the credits, and we can explain why.

Does Gran Turismo have a post-credits scene?
The cast of Gran Turismo in an official poster for the film.

This week, moviegoers in select locations around the country have the opportunity to strap in for a video game movie that doubles as a sports bio pic: Gran Turismo. After eight years away from the big screen, District 9 director Neill Blomkamp made his cinematic return with the story of professional racer, Jann Mardenborough, a man who owes his career to the skills that he gained from playing the Gran Turismo video games. It wasn't an instantaneous journey for Mardenborough, and the film dramatizes the journey that he embarked on in order to take the wheel on some of the most prestigious race tracks in the world.

Archie Madekwe stars in the film as Jann Mardenborough, with Stranger Things' David Harbour as Jack Salter, Orlando Bloom as Danny Moore, Darren Barnet as Matty Davis, Djimon Hounsou as Steve Mardenborough, Geri Halliwell as Lesley Mardenborough, Takehiro Hira as Kazunori Yamauchi, Josha Stradowski as Nicholas Capa, Daniel Puig as Cai Mardenborough, Maeve Courtier-Lilley as Audrey, Richard Cambridge as Felix, and Emelia Hartford as Leah Vega.

Does The Flash movie have a post-credits scene?
Two Flashes stand on a battlefield with Supergirl in The Flash.

For better or worse, The Flash doesn’t hold back. Throughout its 144-minute runtime, the superhero blockbuster tosses out more alternate universes, cameos, character variants, and shoddy visual effects than audiences will be able to see coming. The Andy Muschietti-directed film fits so much into its core story, in fact, that there isn’t much left for it to do by the time it's reached its end credits.

That doesn’t mean The Flash doesn’t pack any extra surprises into its credits, though. Heading into the film’s long-awaited opening weekend, here’s what DCEU fans should know about The Flash -- namely, whether or not it has any post-credits scenes that they should stay in the theater to see.
