“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” may not be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but with a 99 percent Fresh rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, we’re pretty much all in agreement that it’s worth your time even so.
The question, however, for this particular post is not whether you should go see this crazy thing, but whether you need to stick around after the movie is over for some kind of bonus post-credits scene. Bonus scenes after the credits have been a staple of the MCU since the beginning, but not so for big-screen “Spider-Man” movies — which have often eschewed the practice.
But at this point the post-credits scene concept is so ubiquitous in comic book movies that even DC is doing it after thumbing its nose at Marvel over this for so long. And Sony even got in on the post-credits scene fun with its recent standalone “Venom” movie.
So what’s the answer? Does “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” have a post-credits scene?
Yes, there is extra content after the credits start to roll. There is one minor bit, a nod to the late Stan Lee, midway through the credits — and at the very end of the credits we get a bonus scene that serves to introduce us to yet another Spider-Man. A Spider-Man that could very well end up in a future “Spider-Verse” film — and since Sony has already greenlit a sequel, you can start getting your hopes up now.
