Marvel releases every post-credits scene from movies within the Marvel Cinematic Universe in anticipation of the premiere of Avengers: Endgame. Post-credits scenes have become an MCU staple, the thing that keeps moviegoers in their seats long after the credits roll. Some post-credits scenes have led to significant reveals, while others have teased future movies.
Avengers: Endgame will see the end of the massive story that has been a large part of Phase 3 of the MCU. In Avengers: Infinity War, the Avengers saw half of the universe's population get decimated at the hands of the Mad Titan Thanos. In Endgame, the Avengers will deal with the aftermath of that destruction, as well as come together to figure out exactly how they can fix the world, or at least stop Thanos from doing more damage. Marvel recently released a series of posters highlighting those Avengers who were among the fallen, as well as champion the current team of Avengers moving forward into the new film. However, the plot for Endgame is so secretive that only one actor, Robert Downey Jr., was allowed to read the entire Endgame script.
In anticipation of the release of Endgame on April 27, Marvel took to Twitter and released the post-credits scenes from each of its movies, from 2008's Iron-Man through 2019's Captain Marvel.

Although we're less than a week away from Endgame, no one knows how the film will play out and how the Avengers will finally defeat Thanos. However, Downey recently promised that the last eight minutes of the movie are the best in the entire MCU. As the film helps wrap up the end of the MCU's Phase 3, which ends with Spider-Man: Far From Home, it's likely that some Avengers will die, or at least retire, with new team members taking up the helm, including Captain Marvel. In an Audi short film, it was revealed how Captain Marvel learned about the Avengers; that short film also confirmed that Goose, the Flerken disguised as a cat, survived Thanos' snap.
Marvel has pulled out all the stops in promoting Endgame, spending a record-breaking $200 million on marketing. In comparison, the company only spent $150 million on Infinity War. It's betting big on the finale to the story set up in Infinity War. It's also likely that Endgame will become one of the biggest movies in box office history since the film has already substantially outsold Infinity War in pre-purchased tickets.
