The first Marvel movie of the new year is finally upon us, and it’s quite a doozie. “Logan” has received rave reviews from critics, who have been describing it as one of the best comic book movies ever made. The film currently sports a 93 percent fresh rating on the review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes.
It’s also 20th Century Fox’s second attempt at an R-rated superhero movie in as many years, after “Deadpool” was a huge hit in 2016. “Logan” is the first “X-Men” movie to let Wolverine really cut loose with bloody violence and a whole lot of swearing.
So it’s a break from Marvel tradition in that way — as most of the past Marvel flicks have stuck with a more family-friendly PG-13. Does it break tradition in any other ways, like the Marvel staple of including some kind of treat hidden after the end credits?
Well, I have some good news and bad news. The good news is that should you really, really need to get out of the theater as soon as “Logan” ends you can do just that knowing you aren’t going to miss any extra scenes. Which is the bad news “Logan” does not feature a post-credits scene or easter egg.
That doesn’t mean “Logan” is skipping out on the bonus content, though — the film is just putting it in a different place.
Stop reading here if you don’t want to know anything about the extra bit before the movie.
The film will actually lead with an extra three-minute-long scene featuring Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) before the movie proper starts, kinda like the short films that play before Pixar movies. You can read about the Deadpool bit in detail here.
That Deadpool bonus is the only extra you’ll find at screenings of “Logan,” so there’s no need to wait for anything else once the credits roll. Though we do encourage all our readers to stick around for the credits anyway in appreciation for the hard work of the hundreds of people involved in the production you just enjoyed.
