Godzilla won’t stomp into theaters until the end of the week, but with Godzilla: King of the Monsters reviews already out in the wild, you’re probably wondering whether the new movie features a post-credits scenes (or scenes). After all this, is a cinematic “MonsterVerse” and the next movie is already confirmed, so there’s gotta be some sort of teaser, right?
Here’s everything you need to know about the Godzilla: King of the Monsters post-credits scene(s). And yes, this is a totally spoiler-free article.
Short answer: Yes. Godzilla: King of the Monsters does feature a post-credits scene. (It actually has two if you count the stylized credits, which you should.) However, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s worth sticking around to see everything. Here’s why you should feel free to leave once the regular credits start to roll.
Immediately after King of the Monsters ends, the movie transitions into a stylized credits sequence that explains what happens next in the MonsterVerse. Without spoiling anything, I’ll just say that it’s an extremely entertaining collage of fake news headlines and tweets from this fictional world where humans and giant monsters interact.
Once that’s over, King of the Monsters transitions into regular credits. You can stick around for one final scene, but you don’t really have to. While the official post-credits scene does provide some closure for two key characters in the movie, it’s more about tying up loose ends from this Godzilla film rather that teasing what’s coming immediately next.
If you’re hoping for a first look at the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong you might as well just leave. But if you’re totally sold on the world of King of the Monsters stick around for one more moment.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters stomps into theaters on May 31.
