Now James Mangold Bashes Easter Eggs, Calls Fans Who Watch Post-Credits Scenes “Dogs Waiting for Milk Bones”

Posted by February 4, 2018 Comment

Logan director James Mangold has taken to Twitter to double down on his controversial statements about post-credits scenes and movies, as well as to broaden his attack to include another fan-favorite component of superhero flicks: easter eggs.

Bleeding Cool reported earlier this week on Mangold’s profanity-laden comments at an Audi-sponsored WGA event.

The idea of making a movie that would fucking embarrass me, that’s part of the anesthetizing of this country or the world. That’s further confirming what they already know and tying in with other fucking products and selling them the next movie while you’re making this movie, and kind of all that shit that I find really fucking embarrassing. Like, that audiences are actually asking for scenes in end credits when those scenes were first developed for movies that suck, so they put something extra at the end to pick up the scores when the movie couldn’t end right on its own fucking feet.

Now we’ve actually gotten audiences addicted to a fucking bonus in the credits. It’s fucking embarrassing. It means you couldn’t land your fucking movie is what it means.

Even if you got 100,000 Twitter addicts who are gambling on what fucking scene is going to happen after the fucking credits it’s still cheating. It’s just cheating, but there’s all sorts of bad habits like that that fucking horrify me, man, that have become de rigueur in the way we make movies and I think the fear of being one of them that did that end then everyone’s patting me on the back and I feel like shit inside because I know I cheated, is probably the greatest thing that scares the shit out of me.

Not satisfied with that, Mangold took to Twitter this morning to post:

Mangold also took questions from his Twitter followers, revealing his thoughts on the post-credits scene in his own movie, The Wolverine:

And he’s apparently not a very big fan of sequels either:

He also said he wasn’t pleased with the inclusion of a Deadpool short in theatrical airings of Logan:

Is there anything else about the movie business he works in that James Mangold hates? We’ll be keeping an eye on it and we’ll let you know.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
