Godzilla vs Kong spoilers follow.

Post-credits scenes have somewhat become the norm for blockbuster franchises these days.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe model has been used everywhere from Worlds of DC to the MonsterVerse, including 2019's Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

However, the latter film's sequel, Godzilla vs Kong – which is released this week – doesn't include one.

Opening up about why they decided to keep things simple, the movie's co-writer Max Borenstein revealed that there originally were plans for one, but in the end they felt the film was "wrapped up" enough not to warrant it.

"There was one at some point that everyone had been kind of toying around with… I think it makes sense [one wasn't included]," he explained to CinemaBlend.

"This is kind of the culmination of a particular chapter, and whatever may or may not come after it, it's cool that this feels wrapped up. We certainly toyed around with something."

Godzilla vs Kong has received fairly positive reviews on the whole, with Digital Spy awarding the movie three stars.

In our review, we said: "If you're tuning into Godzilla vs Kong to see the two massive titans beat the living hell out of each other (and why wouldn't you?), the answer is an absolute yes.

"The movie isn't without its issues, but in terms of delivering on the carnage promised, you'd be hard-pressed to find a fan that won't be satisfied."

Godzilla vs Kong will be available to rent at home from April 1 in the UK and is out in cinemas and on HBO Max in the US now.
