Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is less than two weeks from hitting theatres, so some of the hosts from ComicBook.com's Phase Zero podcast had the chance to chat with many of the people who made the movie happen. One such person is Nate Moore who has been a producer on multiple Marvel Cinematic Universe films, including both Black Panther movies. It's been confirmed that the sequel only has a mid-credits scene, and Moore explained why there was no end tag like in most of the films.
The fact that director Ryan Coogler originally wanted to introduce Namor (Tenoch Huerta) at the end of the first Black Panther came up, so we asked whether or not there was anyone they wanted to introduce at the end of the sequel. "Not this time, you know, obviously the way that this movie is a bit different and the tone of this movie is a bit different and it felt especially, once people see the film, we felt the ending was so kind of poetic, to then go back and say, 'Hey there's a tag at the end credits' felt a little disingenuous tonally from what we were doing," Moore explained. "Much like Endgame didn't have a tag, this didn't feel like a movie that needed it."
