In director Taika Waititi’s sequel to 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok there’s two post-credits scenes in complete. The primary seems halfway by means of the credit, whereas a second is proven on the finish as soon as they’ve rolled.
Within the first scene it’s revealed that Zeus (Russell Crowe) survived Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) lightning bolt assault on the movie’s climax. Within the scene set in Omnipotence Metropolis, Zeus vows to hunt revenge towards Thor to somebody off digicam.
“It appears to me that being a God used to imply one thing,” Zeus says. “Now individuals simply need superheroes, when did we grow to be the joke?”
Because the digicam turns, we see Zeus is chatting with new character Hercules, performed by Ted Lasso star Brett Goldstein.

Within the scene she’s proven on the gates of Valhalla, earlier than the afterlife, the place she’s greeted by gatekeeper Heimdall (Idris Elba), who was killed by Thanos (Josh Brolin) firstly of Avengers: Infinity Struggle.
It’s unclear if that is the final we’ll see of Jane Foster.
