Christopher Nolan

apparently isn't a big fan of leaving the audience waiting for more (a sequel) with an extra scene at the end of credits, a la Marvel movies. He has been quoted as having said that a 'real movie' would never do something like that.

According to a new profile by Tom Shone at the Guardian, Nolan was the one to make the decision to not have a post-credits scene on a potential sequel in Man of Steel.

However, Nolan has disputed The Guardian's report. He has released the following statement: "I would never say someone else's film isn't 'a real film.' The quote is inaccurate."

The reference is being made to Marvel and its big list of superhero movies like Avengers and Captain America that are known to leave an extra scene at the very end, after all the credits have rolled up. The viewers are left with no other option than to sit through the credits if they want to know what the next movie will offer.
