Post-credits scenes Thor Love and Thunder: what just happened?

We’ve just seen the post-credits scenes of Thor: Love and Thunder, and if you’re a bit confused about what just happened, we’re here to go over all the details. Below we have spoiler-free information about how many scenes are after the credits, as well as a spoiler-filled explanation of what actually happens in them.

Longtime MCU fans won’t be surprised to learn that both scenes are pretty standard. They’re all about teasing for the future and giving fans a little reward for sitting in the credits and watching these names go by. Luckily, unlike The Eternals or Doctor Strange 2, these scenes have something for everyone – no matter how much you know about Marvel comics.

So, here are all the details about the post-credits scenes of Thor: Love and Thunder with the spoiler-free and spoiler-filled versions.

How many scenes after the credits of Thor: Love and Thunder?

There are two post-credits scenes in Thor: Love and Thunder.

The opening scene comes right after the very opening credits, complete with all the colorful art style and fonts that wouldn’t look out of place on an ’80s metal album. Which is fitting given the heavy Guns N’ Roses soundtrack.

The second post-credits scene of Thor: Love and Thunder starts right at the very end of the credits. You have to go through all the cast, crew, filming locations, and studio logos, which takes about four extra minutes. Once the scene is over, you can leave knowing that the movie is really over.

And now we move on to the content of both of these scenes.

What happens in the post-credits scenes of Thor: Love and Thunder?

In the first scene: We return to the Almighty City, the city of the gods with a not-so-subtle name, where it turns out that Zeus is still alive. While recovering from a wound inflicted by Thor earlier in the film, Zeus laments the fact that humans are far more interested in worshiping superheroes than gods.

So he sends his son Hercules (Brett Goldstein) into the universe to kill Thor. That’s right, Roy Kent is now part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and he’s out for blood – setting the stage for a possible showdown in Thor 5.

In the second scene: we see the aftermath of Jane Foster’s sacrifice, which resulted in her dying in Thor’s arms. Since she was actually a Space Viking and died in battle, the Mighty Thor was sent to Asgard, where she was reunited with Heimdall (Idris Elba).

While this could easily be the end of Jane’s MCU adventures, this scene could hint that another comic book arc is ripe for adaptation – one in which she shed her Thor mantle and eventually became the new Valkyrie. Though Jane didn’t die in the comics, so this point might complicate things.
