SPOILER Alert! Obviously! Spoilers for the mid and post-credits scenes to Captain America: Civil War follow!
Marvel Studios did something production companies have tried for decades and been unsuccessful at: made the credits at the end of a movie into an experience, an event unto itself. Since Iron Man debuted in 2008 with a post-credits scene that introduced Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and teasing something called "The Avengers Initiative."
Since, they've sometimes added two scenes once the credits begin to roll. After a, outro credits sequence designed, there's one scene, usually directly epilogue to the film you just watched, then after the actual credits roll, a final scene, usually humorous, and sometimes with a future peek at something coming down the road. We got both for Captain America: Civil War. Last chance to bounce before major spoilers!
The mid-credits sequence starts with a shot of the Winter Soldier, Bucky Barnes. He's in a pod of some type. There are scientists in the lab, as Steve Rogers talks to Bucky. He asks him if he's sure he wants to do this, then promises him they'll fix things. They're going to freeze Bucky again, as it's the only way to keep him from being used thanks to all that brainwashing. T'Challa aka Black Panther is there - ah, so it seems we're in Wakanda. T'Challa and Cap have a talk, as the King promises Steve that they'll find a way to save Bucky and keep him from ever being taken over by evil again. Steve warns him, though, that when people find out Bucky's being kept there, they'll come for him. "Let them try," T'Challa says in the most baller line possible. A giant Panther statue is the final shot as Wakanda is seen in all its glory.
The credits roll, and it's time for the other standout new character, Spider-Man to get the focus. Peter Parker sits in his bedroom, and is checking out his suit (thanks Iron Man!) and his webshooter. It clicks and projects some light - just as Aunt May comes into his room. He hides it, and after she asks about his black eye, which he blames on a guy from Brooklyn named Steve (yeah, that's Cap), she leaves. He takes out the webshooter and it reveals a Spider-signal, his symbol projected in light Batman style.
"Spider-Man will return," it says, borrowing from James Bond there. He will, in fact, return, on July 7, 2017 in Spider-Man: Homecoming, the first joint production by Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures.
