'Shazam!' Post-Credits Scene: Does It Have One? Here's a Spoiler-Free Guide
Here’s a question you’re probably asking yourself, right now, without wanting to actually get spoiled: Does Shazam! have a post-credits scene? Unlike the powers of Zachary Levi, the answer will not shock you.
Surprise: No spoilers for Shazam! ahead.
On April 5, Warner Bros. and DC will unleash Shazam! starring Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, and Jack Dylan Grazer. Based on the popular Fawcett Comics superhero from way back when (he was introduced in 1940), the film is set in the “DCEU” and shows the origin of Shazam, the powerful alter-ego of a teenaged orphan named Billy Batson (Angel) who is gifted incredible superpowers from a dying wizard (Djimon Honsou).
Because it’s a superhero movie in 2019, one has to ask: Does Shazam! have a post-credits scene? The answer is yes. Two of them.
The film has one mid-credits scene, which teases the arrival of a new, if hilariously cartoonish villain from Shazam’s comic book history. It also closely mirrors the ending seen in Geoff Johns’ Shazam, the New 52 reboot of the character that serves as a massive inspiration for the movie. If you want to spoil yourself ahead of time, feel free to pick up the trade paperback volume and thumb towards the last page. (Or, you know, you can read it, instead.)
The film also has a post-credits scene that plays just before the lights in your theater come on. Thankfully, there’s no serious explanation needed. With this movie arriving in theaters a few months after Aquaman, Billy and Freddy take a moment to take a friendly jab at the aquatic Justice Leaguer.
We won’t explain to you what you’ll see in the post-credits scene until after you’ve seen the film hits theaters. But we can tell you that it is a doozy that requires you to accept that the Golden Age of comic books was a weird, weird, and very beautiful time. And yes, it does set up a sequel, but Warner Bros. has not yet confirmed if Shazam! is green lit yet for another movie.
But by the powers of Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury, maybe Billy can prove his strength as a new franchise superhero.
Shazam! hits theaters on April 5.
