Mondo Dictionary: The Nick Fury Moment

This one has been a long time coming, but a recent Film inspired me to finally talk about it.

In a Post-Credits bit from Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, the defeated villain- Ocean Master- is visited in his Cell... Lex Luthor, who appears to be setting up stuff for a future Animated Film.
So...that brings us to the official Definition...

Nick Fury Moment (noun): When Films add a Post-Credits Scene to set up big moments for future Films or introduce new Characters.

Examples: Well, this one...
1) Nick Fury appears and talks about the Avengers Initiative. (Iron Man)
2) Coulson goes out and finds Thor's Hammer (Iron Man 2)
3) A young Apocalypse seems to appear in the Egyptian Desert (X-Men: Days of Future Past)

Want to know how prevalent this has become in the last 8 years?  It even appears in a Fast & Furious Film!
Seriously, Eva Mendes appears and tells The Rock about how Michele Rodriguez is alive (Fast Five).

Will this stay cool (like in Captain America: The Winter Soldier), stay fun (The Avengers) or just piss  some fans off (Guardians of the Galaxy).

Only time will tell...
