The makers of Avengers: Age of Ultron want you to know something about this film’s post-credits ending: It’s not there.

Ever since 2008’s Iron Man concluded with a surprise scene of Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury revealing to Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark that he has “become part of a bigger universe,” fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have known to stick around to the very end for a surprise.

But this time …

Writer-director Joss Whedon says there won’t be a post-credits scene in Ultron because he felt there was no way to top the post-battle shawarma scene from the last one. “We all came at it separately—we don’t want to chase that,” Whedon says. “That was a jewel and a weird little quirk. “

“There will be a tag,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige clarifies. That is, there will be a short, epilogue-like scene that pops up shortly after the credits start. “But there’s not a post-post-credit scene.”

“There is nothing at the very end. And that’s not a fake-out,” Whedon says. “We want people to know so they don’t sit there for 10 minutes and then go: ‘Son of a bitch! I’ll kill them!’”

Whedon says they tried to come up with something worthy of the end-credits shot but ultimately couldn’t top shawarma. “It didn’t seem to lend itself in the same way, and we wanted to be true to what felt right,” Whedon says. “The first rule of making a sequel is take the best moments and do something else. Don’t do the Indiana Jones gun trick again differently. Just go somewhere else. Don’t try to hit the same highs, because people will sense it.”

Also, the movie, out May 1, will include many other superpowered characters seen in previous films, including a few surprises, but rumors of Captain Marvel getting an introduction are false, Feige promises. There is a secret female character, but she may be familiar already. “It’s not a big deal. But it’s a good character,” he says.

E.R.’s Linda Cardellini and Before Sunset’s Julie Delpy have been confirmed as part of the cast, although the filmmakers don’t want to reveal who they are playing yet. One thing is for certain: Someone plays the instructor to a young Black Widow, and Feige and Whedon promise that will be a powerful moment in the history of Scarlett Johansson’s character.

For those who will miss the signature Marvel post-credit button, here’s a look back at the fascinating backstory of how that shawarma scene from the original Avengers film came together.

EW happened to be on set when the moment that gave birth to that idea took place, and we followed along throughout the last-minute filming of the shot, which actually happened after they screened the movie at its 2012 premiere.

“The evolution of the shawarma scene is one of the most fascinating things in my career,” Whedon says.

You might have thought that Chris Evans and Chris Pratt just played superheroes in the movies, but you would have been wrong. These guys really are superheroes.

After making the best Super Bowl bet ever, Captain America and Star-Lord decided that there would be no losers. In the original bet, Evans was supposed to visit Seattle Children’s Hospital if the Seattle Seahawks won, and Pratt was supposed to visit Christopher’s Haven in New England if the New England Patriots won.

After the Patriots won, Pratt quickly honored his portion of the bet and made a trip to Christopher’s Haven as Star-Lord with Chris Evans. And Evans announced that the duo would be visiting Seattle Children’s Hospital as well.

Earlier today, Evans dressed as Captain America visited Seattle Children’s Hospital with Pratt. We’ve embedded some photos below of Evans and Pratt at the hospital.

After helping take down a corrupted S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America now finds himself helping to keep the world safe with his fellow Avengers…and the Earth needs them now more than ever before.

With the rise of a new villain in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” May 1, Chris Evans leads the team once more as the Fighting Avenger. The malevolent artificial intelligence Ultron has designs for humanity—namely, wiping it off the face of the Earth—and in the absence of S.H.I.E.L.D., only the Avengers can step in to stop him.

In “Marvel’s The Avengers,” the team fell under the jurisdiction of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Nick Fury. Now, without Fury in the picture, Cap finds himself with even more responsibility as the team’s leader.
“The team doesn’t have anyone to report to now,” Evans points out. “There’s no more S.H.I.E.L.D., so we’re all kind of depending upon one another. But that gives him an opportunity to take more of a leadership role, since there’s no one else giving him orders, he doesn’t have to question the chain of command or anyone’s motives, but it does mean he needs to rely on his team a lot more. It’s added a little bit more tension to the actual dynamic of the Avengers.”

According to Evans, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes come together once more “out of necessity” as their latest adventure picks up.

“Once S.H.I.E.L.D. fell, [that] affected everybody,” the actor elaborates. “There is something that affects all of us that requires us to come back together and fight as a unit. Cap’s just more than willing to take a leadership role. He’s been in wars. He understands the dynamic of a team. He’s not doing it out of arrogance or ego, he’s doing it out of necessity and functionality.”

While some fans might expect friction between some of the Avengers over who should lead the team, Evans sees it as more about each character understanding their role within the whole.

“Certain people are moving on into different things,” explains Evans. “So for someone like Tony, maybe he may not want to be anything but the front man. But there are people like Thor, [who’s] a soldier. I mean he’s just a soldier in another world, so there’s an understanding between those two men, Captain America [and] Thor. Same with Hawkeye. These guys have all been in battle, so I think for the most part, there aren’t as many conflicting egos in terms of who’s leading this crew. It’s more personal conflicts and more personal questions about who they are as people and what they’re looking for and what makes sense, and what’s right and wrong.”

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” marks the fourth time Evans has picked up the shield as Captain America, and after so many times in Cap’s suit the actor has developed a deeper understanding of the character.

“You know, the first movie, you’re terrified,” recalls Evans. “The second [time] you’re just intimidated because there are so many great people [in ‘Marvel’s The Avengers’]. But by ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ is when you really start hitting your stride and feeling like you’re making some core progress with the character, and you get a little more comfortable speaking up when you have opinions. The Russo [brothers, directors of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’] are so great and I love that movie, and it all just kind of worked out in terms of the evolution of my personal connection with character.”
