Since the inception of the MCU, Marvel and many other film universes have started incorporating post credit scenes as a way of teasing what's to come. Love them or hate them, they are a part of the film industry today.
That being said, they often times provide an interesting look at what Marvel has planned for the future. Because their universe becomes bigger by the month, giving audiences a taste of what's to come can actually benefit their product. If it's a more obscure concept, then we already have exposure to it and can accept it sooner. If it's something that fans aren't happy with, then they have time to change it.
Because of how many post credit scenes there are, it is difficult to remember which one belongs to which movie. This is the part where we test our readers to see who can name the Marvel movie by the post credits scene. Keep in mind, we'll be including FOX's and Sony's Marvel movies for this as well.
This scene was in which movie?
This post credit scene was a fairly short one. It involved the Mad Titan, Thanos, going to an undisclosed location where he discovers the Infinity Gauntlet. However, the Gauntlet itself doesn't have any gems, meaning that we still have yet to see him gather all of them for his conquest in Infinity War. Then, after years of people stating that he doesn't do anything, we finally get a statement from him saying, "Fine. I'll do it myself." Are you hyped yet?

It does give an insight as to how their relationship works, but other than that, it's a fairly skippable scene.
