Captain Marvel has conquered the box office like many a Marvel Studios blockbuster before it, and fans are leaving theaters happy – especially after watching the movie’s two end-credits scenes.

The first, set in our current time, (SPOILER WARNING: Stop reading now if you haven’t seen the movie!) shows Carol arriving at Avengers HQ post-Snap after being paged by Nick Fury and the second, set earlier, features Goose the Cat coughing up the Tesseract on Nick Fury’s ’90s-era desk. That last tag, however, was this close to being something related to Thor: Raganok that would have made fans LOL for days.

In an interview with EmpireCaptain Marvel directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck shared that one of their early ideas for the second post-credits scene involved Yon-Rogg (Jude Law) making an accidental visit to the junk planet of Sakaar and home to Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster.

“There was an idea on the table about having Jude Law […] emerge from his pod on Sakaar,” revealed Fleck, “and then have him look around and see the Devil’s Anus behind him and wonder, ‘Where the hell am I?’”

The filmmakers did not share why or how this idea was ultimately discarded in favor of a space cat coughing up an Infinity Stone like a hairball, but we’re happy with the scene we got – especially since it ties in well with the movie’s story and explains (finally) how Fury first got his hands on Loki’s most prized possession.
