If you’ve been online today, you probably noticed that some select genre sites have posted their reviews of Marvel Studios’ “Thor”, which isn’t scheduled to open until May 6, 2011. For some reason, our invitation got lost in the mail. No worries, Marvel, we’ll make up when you send us the “Avengers” invite.
Anyways, because not everyone can keep their mouths shut, we now know the post-credit Easter Egg scene that has been tacked onto the end of “Thor”. (Unless, of course, this is all made-up, ahem.) Marvel loves doing this, and we love that they love doing it. The ending for “Thor” would seem to lead into Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers”, though I’m not sure how, exactly.
[spoiler]In the scene Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) travels to New Mexico to meet with Dr. Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard). He is there to discuss recent discoveries Selvig has made regarding alternate universes. He is also there to get Selvig’s advice about a large metal case, which contains the Tesseract/Cosmic Cube. When Selvig asks what it is, Fury responds that it is a source of immense power. The camera than pans back to Selvig, and a reflection reveals that Selvig is now being possessed by Loki (Tom Hiddleston), who says: “That’s very interesting”.[/spoiler]
So there you have, kids, your “Thor” post-credit surprise spoiled. If you clicked on the SPOILER link to read it, that is.
