Edgar Wright Suggested Saving The Iron Man Credits Scene For The Very End – /Film

20 years (!) before the Ant-Family journeyed into the Quantum Realm, a then little-known filmmaker named Edgar Wright and his writing partner Joe Cornish began crafting an “Ant-Man” movie pitch featuring Scott Lang as a burglar in the vein of an Elmore Leonard character. (Think George Clooney in “Out of Sight.”) Wright, as you very likely recall, notoriously stepped down as the film’s director right before production began at long last in 2014, after which his original ideas for the MCU’s size-altering superhero were overhauled.

Despite the scrapping of Wright’s vision (he and Kevin Feige have since buried the hatchet), the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy maestro still managed to leave his mark on the MCU. Not wanting the Nick Fury tag to be “intrusive or disruptive” to moviegoers with no idea why Samuel L. Jackson would be chilling in Tony Stark’s living room, Feige said the decision was made to move the scene to part-way through the credits of “Iron Man.” However, Jon Favreau noted it was Wright who suggested shifting it to the very end of the credits.

“Remember when we showed it to him [Edgar Wright] at Skywalker [Ranch]? It was just after the first few credits. He’s like, ‘Nah, you gotta put it all the way [at the end],'” Favreau recalled, with Feige comparing it to the iconic post-credits scene from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” 

It was a great call on Wright’s part, giving rise to the MCU’s famous credits scene tradition in the process. However, 15 years later, that “very tricky” balance of servicing multiple audiences has only increased tenfold for the MCU, to the point where even its tried-and-true traditions like the credits scenes can do more harm than good for the franchise’s storytelling. Such is the price of success.
