Wonder Woman might not have had a post-credit scene, but the upcoming Justice League certainly does. Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman in the feature film debut of DC’s finest superhero team, confirmed the existence of at least one on Tuesday, but now that the first early reviews are out on social media.
According to Joblo’s Paul Shirey, who saw an advance press screening of the film, there are actually two post-credit scenes, though he understandably did not spill any additional details about what they might entail. In fact, he suggested fans try to avoid spoiling themselves.
“And yes, stay in your seats to the post and end credits. (Yes, there are two) Don’t let anyone spoil them for you beforehand,” he wrote on Friday when the first press embargo broke at noon.
Unlike Marvel movies, which have post-credit scenes down to a science (tie-up a loose end in a funny way, tease Infinity War, etc), the DCEU has been much less consistent on this front. Suicide Squad had a post-credits scene featuring Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne, but Wonder Woman didn’t have anything.
“I don’t think that we want to feel that we’re forced to do something just because we didn’t in the past,” Wonder Woman producer Charles Roven explained in June.
Given that Justice League is introducing three new heroes who are supposed to have solo movies (the Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg), bringing Superman back to life, and the villain is really just a lackey for a much bigger threat, the movie has a lot it needs to set up. Post-credit scenes are an easy way to do this.
But, on the other hand, maybe they’re not that important since Momoa said he straight-up forgot they were in the script and almost walked out of a screening before the scenes happened.
Here’s Shirey’s tweet below.
Justice League hits theaters on November 17. The early reviews are, uh, not all bad?
