It has been confirmed that Marvel and Sony's highly-anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming has two post-credits scenes. The film - which is set to be the second of three new feature films hitting theaters from Marvel Studios this year - gives Tom Holland's Peter Parker/Spider-Man his first real chance at getting to shine on the big screen. After his brief, but memorable introduction in last year's Captain America: Civil War, the film follows Peter as he struggles to prove himself worthy of being an official new member of the Avengers, by stopping crime throughout his beloved New York City a fairly daily basis, in the hopes of impressing his mentor, Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).
And while he might not expect it, Peter's actions eventually lead him into confrontations with foes the likes of which he's never quite encountered before, including Bokeem Woodbine's Shocker, Michael Chernus' The Tinkerer, and Michael Keaton's villainous Adrian Toomes/Vulture. But in keeping with standard Marvel Studios tradition, the film won't waste its chance to set up the future MCU films to come either.
Following the first official press screenings of the film last night, Comicbook.com's Brandon Davis confirmed on Twitter that Spider-Man: Homecoming has not just one, but two official post-credits scenes that fans can look forward to seeing next month:

Spider-Man: Homecoming is just the latest Marvel film to have multiple post-credits tags attached to it, as the studio finds itself having more and more to set up with each new addition to its universe, though, Homecoming still falls shy of Guardians of the Galaxy 2's record of five post-credits scenes, which accompanied its theatrical release back in May of this year. It's also worth noting that while the existence of the two scenes has now been confirmed, there's no word yet on what they may be, who they may feature, or what future films they may be setting up - so it's hard to know at this point if they're actually anything substantial, or more like the quick jokes/gags that most of Guardians' post-credits sequences were.
So for the moment, the actual context and nature of the post-credits scenes will have to remain a mystery. But just in case anticipation for the film wasn't already high enough, the first reactions to Spider-Man: Homecoming are praising it as being one of the best MCU films to date. All of this just further cements Holland's place in the MCU as already one of its strongest key players. That isn't too bad, considering it was just a few years ago that the chance of seeing Spider-Man and The Avengers on the big screen together felt like nothing more than a faraway dream.
