The Amazing Spider-Man 2 post-credits scene

News Simon Brew 17 Apr 2014 - 06:34

Yep, you read that right: Sony's new Spider-Man movie has a promo for a different movie franchise altogtether...

Well, this is a bit different. The press print of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that we saw last week didn't have a post-credits sting on it, so we popped back to see the film yesterday on its UK release. And whilst it had one on that, it turns out it wasn't for a future Spider-Man project. Instead, the sting at the end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is actually for X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

Whilst both Marvel properties, Spider-Man and X-Men films are under the stewardship of Sony and Fox respectively, and as such, this is something of a curious move.

The sting features Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Havok (Lucas Till), Toad (Evan Jonigkeit) and William Stryker (Josh Helman). It's not a mistake though: it turns out that the reason for its inclusion was a deal struck between Sony and Fox. Fox had director Marc Webb under contract, which could have prevented him taking the director's chair on The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Fox agreed to release Webb from his commitment though in exchange for the free X-Men publicity.

As such, this is strictly a one-off move, rather than Sony and Fox joining forces longer term. And Nick Fury, before you ask, definitely doesn't turn up as well...

Stop shouting.

Nah you're alright cocknose. You are literally wrong on every provable level regardless of 'cross promotion' or 'spoiler' or 'surprise'.

You haven't cited evidence, backed up with semantic meaning, or made any consistent logic other than 'your opinion' and in fact demonstrate a particularly vile attitude., so I must assume I'm debating with a 'Troll'.

Oh and the "Phuck you, you massive distended bubonic a$$hole" stuff is simply because DOG automatically quarantine properly spelt swear words.

KR: it's this because of *this* evidence, and because it's also *opinion*, AND DOG also reconsidered their position.;

You: No it's not.

KR: Oh yah, how?

You: Because I said so.

Therefore = Cocknose.

It's absolutely hilarious that you keep misunderstanding the phrase 'in a given media' and that 'Spoiler' is contextual, and that YOUR context is much more limited than mine (or the dictionary, or the wiki, or cogent debate)

OKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY

Cheers mate, appreciate the intelligent contribution

Watched the Imax version in Singapore and there wasnt any clip after the credits :(

Yeah I was fapping in ya mum's mouth, cocksucker! lol
She took it like a champ.

Oh yah she told me about that, she said you had to use tweezers.

kubrick's a prick. haha. what a spoiled brat. you know what, gwenn stacy died. yeah. I spoiled it for you.

If you don't want to get spoiled, why are you even in this site. how did you get here? how dumb are you to click on something you know you could get spoiled. such a dumb ass.

Did you get to borrow the family brain-cell for the day? A+ for effort but F- for content. Could do better.

pfff..

You need to capitalise the first letter of each sentence Mr Spoiler or you really won't get very far on job applications. There IS life after teenage masturbation and playing with toys you know? No, no don't thank me, I do a lot of work for charity.

Oh AHAHAHHA you don't know that the article title has been changed do you? AHAHahhaah I now understand why you are coming across like a moron (aside from the bad grammar etc...). Just so you know the actual title contained the spoiler originally so one could not make an informed choice about that spoiler. But by all means carry on, you're keeping me entertained at least.

I was thinking that it s heeding toward the avengers. At first you see that the peter's dad was speaking about dangerous weapons and at the after credits they steal some WMDs. Which there is x-man in it. Wolverine will be in it then i m sure of it. Avenger 2 coming!

true story...

Yes and No. It opened in the UK before America so my understanding of it was the early showings (as in the first week) didnt have it then it was added after the US release. I dont recall seeing it on opening day but when I saw it again a few weeks later it did have it

Impossible. They are owned by different studios, which is why Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch's backstories in Avengers are the result of experiments with Loki's spear, rather than the children of Magneto.

who cares about logan. they screwed up xmen. the series is worthless now.

meh. What we really need is a proper batman series, as well as batman. then green latern as well as a flash.. then they introduce others in their seires and justice league. avengers is lame compared to justice league

Can't argue tastes, man
