Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 is just days away from release, which means writer-director James Gunn is posting GOTG information all over the place. Including news of the film’s post-credits scenes.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 is the third and final chapter in James Gunn’s acclaimed and hugely successful GOTG saga.

The film’s official synopsis is as follows: “Our beloved band of misfits are settling into life on Knowhere, but it isn’t long before their lives are upended by the echoes of Rocket’s turbulent past. Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him on a dangerous mission to save Rocket’s life – a mission that, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them.”

How many post-credits scenes do the Guardians of the Galaxy movies have?

The Guardians of the Galaxy movies typically have both mid and post-credits scenes.

The first movie featured an early credits scene in which Baby Groot dances to the Jackson Five just after the words “The Guardians of the Galaxy will return” appear onscreen. Then Cosmo and Howard the Duck make a cameo in an end-credits scene.

The second movie contained a bunch of them. After “The Guardians of the Galaxy will return”, we see Kraglin using Yondu’s arrow. Followed by: Stakar Ogord getting his team back together; Ayesha creating Adam Warlock to destroy the Guardians; Groot turning into a messy teen; and Stan Lee asking the Watchers for a lift home.
