There's only one mid-credits stinger at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron
. Once you see that, you don't need to sit through another half hour of credits just to see "The Avengers will return" at the end.

|A-TEAM Grenade Vodka
Q saw this the other day and picked it up for me. It’s small (a fifth, or 200ml) and cheap (under $10), but it’s in a cool container. Unfortunately, the coolest bottles always contain the harshest vodka (see also Crystal Skull Vodka); but fortunately, you can always re-fill and re-use the bottle with decent vodka.

|I Was Watching For a Kid Who’d Lost His Pets
The frame above is from the very beginning of the new Netflix Daredevil
series (not to be confused with the Affleck movie
) where a young Matt Murdock is blinded after being hit by a truck and exposed to toxic chemicals that were being transported on it. Note the open manhole cover in the background, with the toxic chemicals spilling down into it. In the original (non-Marvel, BTW) Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles
comic books, the Turtles received their powers during the same incident as Daredevil, from the same chemicals.

|William Shatner Steals Space Shuttle to Search for Reborn Leonard Nimoy
— An arrest warrant has been issued for Star Trek actor William Shatner, who is reported to have stolen the space shuttle Enterprise.
It is believed that Shatner carried out the audacious theft with a group of friends after claiming they just wanted to “look the old bird over” before she was broken up.
NASA are reported to be incredulous about the crime, as the Enterprise was retired from service in 2012. A spokesperson said, “We just don’t understand how they got her going. She’s a relic on a one-way trip to the scrap heap.”
“Quite simply, the engines cannae take it.”
“The only way they could get that old tub going again would be to steal parts from a nuclear vessel, and who has the ability to do that?”
Shatner and his crew – reported to comprise Nichelle Nichols, George Takei and Walter Koenig – are understood to believe that Leonard Nimoy will have been reborn on a new, Edenic alien world as suggested in a 1984 documentary.
When asked their course, shortly before passing out of radio range, Shatner is reported to have replied “Second star on the left, and straight on ’til morning.”

People still go to Marvel-based movies and leave during the credits?

Mr. Nibbles the cat did not appreciate being dressed up as a giraffe. We didn’t expect him to, to be honest. Anyway, the costume was too small for him; the velcro bands were long enough to wrap around him and hold the costume on, but there was no way his forelegs were fitting through the provided holes. (The costume was designed for annoying little yappy dogs.) Anyway, we took a few pictures while he expressed his displeasure, and then the costume was given to Storvik’s sehlat (a Vulcan teddy bear). The pointed ears actually lined up with the foreleg holes. In the background you can see Cthulhu also sporting a partial giraffe disguise; my stuffed creatures are infiltrating Richard’s large (over forty) collection of stuffed giraffes for various nefarious purposes.
I love the teaser for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and I think the usage of “I’ve Got No Strings” really works. For you young ’uns, that song is originally from Pinocchio; so its appearance in a Marvel trailer can also be interpreted as Disney marking its territory…
However, the way they made it sound ominous and creepy in the Ultron trailer also reminds me of how they used “Stay Awake” in this fake recut trailer for Mary Poppins. Take a happy, cheerful Disney song, make it slower and deeper with a touch of reverb, and you end up with something frightening…

– which shows you the spoilers from the end of a random movie or television series. Keep clicking, and it keeps giving you another. Of course, if you don’t have Netflix, you can still watch this:
