So, what is the after credits scene with The Wolverine? MASSIVE SPOILERS LIE WITHIN

July 19th, 2013 by Marc Comments

We’d heard from Hugh Jackman last week that there would be a link to Days of Future Past at the end of The Wolverine for those who wanted to stay after the credits…

Well, here, courtesy of Darkhorizons, is the breakdown of what the scene is.

Beware MASSIVE spoilers

You’re warned


Ok then…

Two years after the events in “The Wolverine”, Logan is walking through an airport waiting in line for the metal detector. A Trask Industries promo (can’t recall if it’s either a news report or commercial) is playing on the TV screens in the airport.

Just as he gets to the detector, coins and other metal bits around him start levitating. He realizes someone is behind him and spins around. A man in a black trench and hat slowly lifts his head – it’s Ian McKellen as Magneto. A Magneto who seems to have his power back.

Magneto then tells him that something is coming that could destroy all mutant kind and wants him to join the fight. Logan turns him down, saying why should he join him. It’s then he realises all the noise and people around him have stopped moving.

Patrick Stewart’s Professor X in his wheelchair rolls through the airport around the frozen people and up to Logan. A disbelieving Logan asks him “how is this possible?”. Xavier replies with a reference back to the first film – “Like I told you before, you’re not the only one with gifts”. Cut to black.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
