Later, Feige addressed the gathering and expressed his gratitude to his peers at Marvel Studios, The Walt Disney Company and numerous others.
In his acceptance speech, he revealed the real reason behind the much talked about post-credit scenes of Marvel movies. Feige said, “Movies bring people together, but they also bring people together behind the scenes and in Marvel Studios, we’ve been putting a scene after the end credits in all of our films since the very beginning. The fans love it, it’s a tease of something to come.”
He went on to say that the real bonus behind the much loved post-credit scenes was that the audience would sit back and look at the credits that come before the teaser.
“The audience is going to sit there and look at all the names of the hundreds of thousands of people who work so hard to bring these movies to life. That really inspired me as a kid, to see all those names and I hope it inspires people today,” Feige continued.
Feige then told the audiences a story of how it was the Iron Man in 2008 which influenced Ryan Coogler to give the world Black Panther after 10 years. This story also recently came up during the Director’s Roundtable discussion among The Russo Brothers, Jon Favreau, Joss Whedon, James Gunn, Ryan Coogler, Peyton Reed, and Taika Waititi. The roundtable discussion was included as a bonus with the Avengers: Infinity War digital release.
