Ant-Man Post Credit Sequence

Now that Sony and Marvel Studios have made a deal to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there's an obvious way to tease fans - by making Spider-Man the centrepiece of Ant-Man's post-credits sequence. Rather than feature Spider-Man himself, though, I think there's a way to build anticipation while also introducing a surprise...

AFTER THE CREDITS...

INT. THE DAILY BUGLE.

City editor ROBBIE ROBERTSON enters an office, holding up the galleys of the morning edition of the DAILY BUGLE newspaper. "ANT-MAN SAVES CITY" screams the headline.

We see the back of a familiar head with a flattop haircut.

"Ant-Man? That's what we're calling him? Ant-Man?"

ROBBIE shrugs. Camera angle shifts to reveal JK Simmons as J. JONAH JAMESON.

"As if SPIDER-MAN weren't bad enough! Where are those photos of him fleeing the disaster like the coward he is? PARKER! PARRRRKERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!"


From offscreen, a WEB-LINE zips into frame and seals JAMESON'S mouth shut with webbing. CUT TO a rear view of Spider-Man swinging away from the DAILY BUGLE building.

The surprise, of course, would be casting Simmons in the Jameson role again. It might not be likely, but I'd sure love it.

Simmons IS Jameson. There's no other choice.

Even before yesterday's announcement, there had been talk about Simmons' triumphant return... Let's hope it's true!
