Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Doesn't everyone know that there's always an after credits sequence at the end of Marvel Studios movies by now? Everyone left the screening room, the lights turned on bright as they could, the cleaning crew appeared to be waiting for me to leave (I explained to them why I was 'hanging around'). And lo and behold there wasn't only a mid-credits sequence. There was a short sequence after the entire credits had finished too. Admittedly the final after-credits sequence wasn't terribly impressive, but it was cool to see all the same. Even if you're the last one left, it's probably still worth the embarrassment.

To a certain extent this sequel to "Captain America: The First Avenger" is a bit of a retcon of the previous movie. Less of a retcon, it turns out, than I'd been inclined to believe at the time. There were two elements that I felt were particularly inconsistent. Firstly, the claim that the Howling Commandoes had fought many battles with Captain America. Secondly, the revelation that Bucky Barnes could have been retrieved by the scientist Zola (played by Toby Jones) after he fell off the train.
