Thor Ragnarok – End Credit Scenes Explained

As with any new movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we fans look forward to the end credit scenes, with this comes lots of speculation about what they mean and where they could lead! Thor Ragnarok is no different.
I’ve written up details of the Thor Ragnarok end credits scenes, together with what they mean below (obviously this includes spoilers so do not read unless you’ve seen Thor Ragnarok!) If you haven't seen Thor Ragnarok yet, you can still read my full non-spoiler review of Thor Ragnarok here or my spoiler-filled thoughts of Thor Ragnarok here.

THOR RAGNAROK MID-CREDITS SCENE
The scene starts with Thor and Loki aboard the space-ship carrying the surviving Asgardians. Loki and Thor are looking out over the galaxy and are debating whether going to Earth is the right decision, well more specifically, Loki questions whether he returning to Earth is the right decision.

Thor is confident and reassuringly says “Brother I think we’re going to be ok.” As Thor finishes his sentence, a shadow ominously rises over them and a huge spaceship is revealed to be rising in front of them. Cut to black…

This is a relatively short scene, but it gets me super excited! This is most definitely an early scene from Avengers: Infinity War and that ship belongs to none other than Thanos.

We know based on the preview footage of Avengers: Infinity War, Thor is floating through space when he meets the Guardians of the Galaxy. I’d suggest this early encounter with Thanos doesn’t end well for the God of Thunder and results in him being stranded in space.

What happens to Loki, Hulk, Valkyrie and rest of the Asgardian is yet to be known…

THOR RAGNAROK END-CREDITS SCENE
 As usual, the final stinger scene is less story focused and more comedic. It focuses on the Grandmaster crawling out of a crashed spaceship in one of the junkyards of Sakaar and coming face to face with the scavengers Thor met earlier. The Grandmaster tries to negotiate with the scavengers poorly (but comedically).

It doesn’t really serve much purpose other than to leave a smile on your face.

Well that’s the details of the Thor Ragnarok end credit scenes, what did you think?

  1. In the scenes showed to guests at San Diego Comic Con this year, Loki was seen handing the Tesseract to Thanos, which he obviously pilfered while down in the vaults of Asguard. You forgot to also mention as well as Hulk/Banner the fate of Valkyrie as she is confirmed to appear in Infinity War also. I'd hedge my bets she survives the initial meeting with Thanos as Marvel will be keen to retain another strong female lead.

    As for the comedy scene with Grandmaster and the Scavengers it was revealed that Goldblum ad libbed alot of that.
