If you’re a movie fan, then you know that modern American cinema is all about the franchise. The more movies and stars you can fit, the better. But every sequel means more story and more characters for audiences to remember. That’s why movies should have pre-credits scrolls. The device might be most closely associated with the Star Wars universe, but maybe the makers of The Fast and the Furious or the Marvel movies should start thinking about incorporating that nifty trick themselves. These are all films that require a recap, and what better way to do that then with a pre-credit scroll?

By the time you get to the third film in a franchise, no one knows what’s going on in the series anymore. And if you do, you don’t want to answer everyone else's questions. It’s better for fans' collective sanity if every movie that’s part of a franchise opens with some kind of pre-credit scroll that reminds viewers of any pertinent information. When it comes to movies that need a pre-credit scroll, exposition is welcome.
