SPOILER ALERT: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Post-Credits Scenes and Easter Eggs Explained

All of the important “Guardians of the Galaxy” Easter eggs and post-credits scenes explained.

The new “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie post-credits scene raised a lot of questions for fans and provided not a lot of answers.

“They were funny tidbits.” said sophomore Shannon Price. “They probably had great connections to other future, movies.”

In one of the post-credits scenes, fans saw Sylvester Stallone’s character, Stakar Ogord, assembling the original Ravagers. Stakar is actually a famous Marvel anti-hero known as Starhawk and a member of one of the original Guardians of the Galaxy teams, an alternate future incarnation from the 31st century. The other members that fans saw were Martinex (Michael Rosenbaum), Charlie-27 (Ving Rhames), Mainframe (voiced by Miley Cyrus), Krugarr (a CG character), and Aleta (Michelle Yeoh). This original group, along with Yondu, worked together before Yondu’s betrayal. His betrayal, trading in children, causes him to be kicked off the Guardian’s team. Given that the newly re-assembled Guardians are no stranger to time travel in the comics, it wouldn’t be a stretch for this newly assembled team to go back and save Yondu. However, nothing has been confirmed by director James Gunn.

Another post-credits scene depicts the Ravager Kraglin, played by Sean Gunn, practicing with Yondu’s telepathic arrow and subsequently turning Drax into a pincushion. Fans have speculated that Kraglin will become the new Ravager captain, taking Yondu’s place as the leader.

The final and possibly most important of the end-credits scene is the introduction of Adam Warlock. Two of Marvel’s most-storied characters, both Adam and his creator, the Sovereign Ayesha, have complicated backstories. Basically, Adam and Ayesha are genetic twins who go on to become very important players in Marvel’s space universe. Adam in particular was extremely important for defeating Thanos in the Infinity Gauntlet comics, and has strong ties to both the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Avengers. At one point, Adam even had an Infinity Gem affixed to his forehead in the comics.

According to ign.com, “for the MCU, Gunn told IGN that he’ll be sitting out Avengers: Infinity War and will instead be a big character in the future alongside the returning Ayesha, which we’re assuming means they’ll be a brother/sister villain duo in “Guardians of the Galaxy” Vol. 3. And in case you were wondering, Gunn said he made a mistake by including Adam’s signature cocoon as an Easter egg in the first Guardians movie (as glimpsed inside the Collector’s museum), which is why we see a new, tech-based cocoon this time around.”

In another post-credits scene, we see Peter scolding an angry teenage Groot, and while that scene is important for laughs, it tells fans that Groot is growing like a weed and will likely be back to his original size for “Avengers: Infinity War.”

Finally, while not a post-credits scene, fans were given a glimpse of Stan Lee conversing with the Watchers. All-seeing cosmic beings who have a code to observe intelligent life throughout the universe, the Watchers don’t particularly do much in this movie besides simply watch.
