SPOILERS: Alan Taylor Explains The After Credits Scene In THOR: THE DARK WORLD

WARNING! MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD! Alan Taylor discusses the "agonizing" process of picking where to place the scene that eventually ended up after the credits of Thor: The Dark World. Read on for more....

“It’s funny. We agonized for a long time,” said Taylor. “We thought the movie was about whether they got together or not. I think it came down shockingly late in the process that it felt sort of implicit that they were going to be together. So I think that point the reveal of… this is also a spoiler…”

Taylor continued, “Who you have on the throne… was such a jarring thing that you couldn’t follow anything else. So just that process, the finishing of Jane and Thor, wound up being a feel-good moment, but not a big story moment. The feeling was that instead of explaining why they were together, we just left them be together and then the final, final shot was one of my favorites. It was very late in the game, too.”

What do you guys think? Would it have been better to include the after credits scene at the end of the movie, or did it work fine where it was placed? Sound of below

Good God! I f*cking hate romance!

Most moviegoers don't even know this happened. I saw so many get up and leave once the credits started, it's ridiculous. Haven't these people learned by now?

it's the after credits scene.

Would be funny if the AoS fight the Jotun creature in episode 8.

I knew it happened, I just didn't see the point in waiting 5 minutes just to see Thor and Jane kiss.

@Aztlan: Are you talking to me? I saw the scene.

@Lozzy94: It was more than a kiss in that scene.

@Luminus: No, I've put it for all who haven't seen it yet.

I think part of the reason why the last scene was put in was so it would be much easier to explain how Thor got back with the Avengers.

I was really disappointed by the movie. Did not reach the epicness the trailers showed. 6/10 for me.

They should have saved the kissed until the post credit scene. The Jotun beast was hilarious. 4.25 out 5 stars for me.

Hmmm, what if Loki was left for the after credit scene????

But then again, there are still massive amounts of people who does not stay til the very end. Even after knowing there are always stuff at the end.

This movie could have been so much more than this utter crap, wasted opportunity, again. In the most movies the villains are only there to get their asses kicked, but we need more of the guys, who do shit with better reasoning. At least give us something better than this darkness bullshit and a faceless villain. Seriously, only worth watching because loki scenes, the rest boring as hell.

But I really liked the scene, where everybody warned loki not to betray him over and over again or the one with thor in the subway LOL!

I actually couldn't be bothered to wait for the scene, so I just watched it online.
wcwpoet - 11/15/2013, 6:38 AM
Yeah I fine with them not showing that after the reveal that Loki was on the throne.

This was an alright movie, nothing special. It has the same formula almost all the Marvel movies follow.
anthonyEstark - 11/15/2013, 7:07 AM
Yeah, I went with some friends for the premiere, and after the first credits scene, they wanted to leave. I made them stay, of course.
bbman182 - 11/15/2013, 7:37 AM
Lol I like how 10 idiots just jump in here to say the movie was shit... and not even comment about the after credits scene.

Movie was great... Marvel hasn't had a bad movie yet. Quit whining.

One Does Not Simply Leave A Marvel Movie Before The End Of The Credits

Why wasn't this pic in the movie? In the after-credit scene, Thor was in his standard Thor outfit and hair, not this black t-shirt and ponytail. I hope a lot of these unused scenes are included on the Blu-ray.

The film was great...in parts. The motivation for Malekith and coincidental plot points really brought it down a notch.
