Why Was [SPOILER] Shown In The Credits Of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2?

guardiansbwThere are a lot of Easter eggs in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and not all of them are in the actual movie or in those five mid-credit scenes. However, there is a brief cameo in the credits of a character from Thor: Ragnarok that appears.

It has no bearing on the plot, but it is a fun little tidbit that is best left unspoiled, if possible. That being said, you aren't losing anything from the plot of any Marvel movie if you know about this little cameo — so it isn't anything that important.

Thor: Ragarok

The credits for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 are not just text over a black background; they have little pictures on the sides and jokes. At one point the various cast members are all dancing and the Grandmaster, played by Jeff Goldblum, appeared on doing a little dance. Cinemablend asked Kevin Feige about this straight up and he gave a direct response:

"We had footage of just Goldblum dancing and thought it would be fun to put it in there. And as you know from the comics, he's The Collector's brother. Keep an eye out at a particular theme park attraction opening soon, you'll get to see a little crossover… It's just a fun thing. I don't even know — you're the first person to even mention that!"

So it was just a fun little thing, because Goldblum likes to dance. That's cool, but the second part of that response is interesting. The Grandmaster and the Collector (Benicio Del Toro) are both Elders of the Universe and considered siblings. It sounds like there could be some sort of interaction on the upcoming ride at Disneyland.

The Collector has an Infinity Stone now, so he must have some role to play in the upcoming Avengers movies. We can only hope we get to see these two on screen at some point, even if we don't know what kind of role the Grandmaster is ultimately going to play in Thor: Ragnarok.
