James Mangold Expands On Post-Credits Scene Hate, Disses Easter Eggs

Must've had a bad interaction with the Easter Bunny.

Last week, Logan director James Mangold told The 2018 Writers Guild Association Beyond Words Panel his thoughts on post-credits scenes in blockbuster films and didn't hold back. An excerpt of his thoughts includes this barb.

Like, that audiences are actually asking for scenes in end credits when those scenes were first developed for movies that suck, so they put something extra at the end to pick up the scores when the movie couldn't end right on its own fucking feet.

Mangold then took to Twitter to double-down on his comments. Comparing post-credits scenes to crack in that they both feel good.


He goes on to say that the expectation of these scenes cheapens the integrity of your movie-going experience.


Mangold continues knocking cinematic sequential storytelling, with a critique that's reminiscent with one of comic books themselves.


With his next tweet, it seems that Mangold isn't planning on directing another superhero blockbuster in his career.


Mangold then extends his rampage to Easter Eggs, saying the term is infantile and condescending.


He then ends with a mic drop against the argument that these scenes get people to watch the end credits.


Don't expect post-credits scenes or Easter Eggs in Mangold's next films The Force or Captain Nemo.
