'Thor 4' post-credits scene reveals new Marvel hero

Since its inception, Marvel Studios has been known to use post-credits scenes as bonus teasers for their upcoming films. Occasionally, scenes indicated a direct continuation or a transfer between characters. These scenes were both interesting twists and important threads that tie the Marvel Cinematic Universe together. Audiences wait until the end to see them, to get a feel for what's to come, and this ritual has been critical in cementing the MCU as the greatest storytelling force in Hollywood history.

<p>Last year, Marvel Studios began changing its strategy for post-credits scenes for its feature films, using them not as previews for previously announced films, but as a de facto announcement of brand new characters whose future in the MCU is still unknown. This was the case with the “Eternals”, where Harry Styles appeared as Starfox, aka Thanos' brother Eros. Such was the case with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, where Charlize Theron appeared as Clea.</p>
<p>Recently, you would expect the post-credits scene of Thor: Love and Thunder to hint that will be next May in Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Instead, we're introduced to Hercules – the mythical Greek demigod and mainstay of Marvel Comics since 1965 – played by “Ted Lasso” star Brett Goldstein.</p>

<p>Maybe Marvel Studios has outgrown the need for post-credits scenes – we don't have to tease us anymore when we already know everything is interconnected. However, rituals are hard to break, even if they are in vain.</p>
<p>Recall that The Dark Knight star and Oscar winner Christian Bale played Gorr the Godslayer in the new film Thor: Love and Grimm, although before that didn't know anything about the Marvel Cinematic Universe.</p>
