I didn't know there were MCU comics! Any others than the one Christopher mentioned above?
I'm sure they planned to put that scene at the end of the credits, but they realized they needed a better hook for audiences so they put it in just before the credits. They even showed the guy's apperance in all the commercals which I thought was very dumb.
The movie should have ended with Banner. Keep the easer egg after the credits where it belongs.
I was at the premiere event here in Austin with Louis Letterier, the director, in attendance, and he said then (and it may be on the commentary track, too) that he doesn't like post-credit scenes, which is why TIH doesn't have one.
And, yeah, Christopher, lashin' out. My keyboard didn't stutter.
Christopher SMASH PUNY HUMANS with his long and in depth paragraph replies!
And I didn't lash. I mildly teased.
"Right! This calls for immediate discussion!"
... And Christopher is right. It did feel like a post-credits scene.
Concerning canon MCU comics:
- I am Iron Man 1-2
Movie adaptation of Iron Man.
- Iron Man 2 : Public Identity 1-3
Originally solicited as Iron Man 1.5, it is set between Iron Man 1 & 2, goes a little into the Anton/Howard partnership & how Stark met General Ross.
- Iron Man 2 : Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Collects three short stories published as digital comics. Set before Iron Man 2, it shows Nick Fury keeping an eye on Stark, how Black Widow infiltrated Stark Industries & Coulson between the movies.
-- Nick Fury, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. 1
-- Phil Coulson, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. 1
-- Black Widow, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. 1
- Captain America : First Vengeance 1-8 (digital) or 1-4 (printed)
A series of short stories focusing on CA's characters before the movie.
- Marvel's The Avengers Prelude: Fury's Big Week 1-8 (digital) or 1-4 (printed).
Set before the Avengers, it shows the events of Iron Man 2, Thor, Incredible Hulk & Captain America (opening & closing scenes) from the viewpoint of S.H.I.E.L.D. It ties up some loose ends.
First comic to feature the Marvel Cinematic Universe Official Tie-In Logo.
- Marvel's The Avengers: Black Widow Strikes 1-3
A three issue miniseries focusing on Natasha in a mission in Russia tracking down some stolen Stark Tech.
- Announced for November, Marvel's Iron Man 2 Adaptation 1-2 .

- Iron Man 2 : Public Identity TPB - collects Iron Man 2 : Public Identity & Iron Man 2 : Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
- Captain America : First Vengeance TPB - collects Captain America : First Vengeance.

First TPB to feature the Marvel Cinematic Universe Official Tie-In Logo.
- Marvel's The Avengers : Fury's Big Week TPB - collects Fury's Big Week.
- Marvel's The Avengers: Black Widow Strikes TPB - collects Black Widow Strikes.
- Iron Man 2 : Public Identity & Fury's Big Week are referenced in the timeline included in Art of The Avengers.
- There have been other comics set in the MCU, but they are considered to be "inspired by the MCU" and not canon by Marvel Studios. For example, the Iron Man//Hulk/Nick Fury one-shot, the Iron Man Security Measures comic, the Inc. Hulk Walmart comic, the Thor/Captain America: Avengers one-shot & the Avengers Initiative one-shot. The last two listed will be collected in a digest size tpb marked All Ages.
So basically, if you got the last three TPBs on your list, you'd have all the MCU-canonical comics?
Lol, one could say the same thing about how they find that Borg corpse at the end of Blood Fever! It's a post credits scene, but they moved it to before the credits!
^Obviously that's not true, because they never intended it to come after the credits. The Hulk scene originally was meant to be post-credits, as has already been explained.
Oh, thank goodness. I thought when Christopher lashed out against you, he might have broken your "g" key and prevented your keyboard from typing "ou" at the same time, but it turns out it's just an overly affected accent inexplicably carried over into text.
Stop ruining my fun. :P
Christopher is right though - you guys are making a giant, steaming OCD shit-pile mountain out of a teeny molehill with this "post-credits" nonsense. Can we go back to talking about the content of the scene and films now?
No, this stuff is important, Dammit. A post credit scene that they moved to the start of the credits is no longer post. Therefore we need to post about whether the post is appropriate in this post and many other posts.
Wait...what? I'm catchin' crap about "ou" now?
We should probably get back on topic posthaste.
I want to post a post about to the Post-post post I posted.
(I think the silliness in this thread has reached critical mass.)
I'd take the blame for that, but I think it was already pretty silly.
I think the real issue is that putting the Stark scene before the credits it took away from Banner.
