Oh, I can explain it....the gimmick is stale. It was novel in the first Iron Man, still had some life in it by the second movie. But by the time Thor rolled around people were getting tired of having to sit all the way through long credit sequences. And why should they when they can just watch it on YouTube. I know I did.
While Green Lantern was a clusterfuck, the one thing they did right was showing their stinger about a quarter of the way into the final credits.....as did Avengers with the Thanos reveal. I figured that even Marvel understood that as time passed, the willingness to sit through the entire credits just to see 30 seconds, would decrease with even the hard core audience.
They need to just go the GL and Avengers route in the future.
My father was a set designer for TV, and he would take me to the Director's Guild screenings, where they don't allow refreshments and everybody
stays through the credits.
To this day, I don't get up to leave until the curtains close and the lights come up. Hell, even when watching a DVD, I sit through the whole credits.
