The highly anticipated ‘Justice League’ film will make history upon its debut as being only the second DC film to feature a post-credits scene. Most of the DC films we have seen so far have decided against previewing future films in a post-credits scene or sequence, in an effort to set themselves apart from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
As the DCEU continues to take shape and course-correct from what have been regarding as lukewarm projects, it appears that Warner Bros. is no longer afraid of Marvel comparisons. Not only does ‘Justice League’ promise a more colorful and hopeful tone like fans of Marvel are used to, but Aquaman actor Jason Momoa recently revealed that there will be a ‘Justice League’ after-credits scene at the end of the film. Momoa said:
“They do [have to watch right through the end]. You gotta sit through the whole thing, go through the credits.”
‘Justice League’ director Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. considered the idea of including a comedic after-credits scene at the end of ‘Man of Steel,’ but it was reportedly vetoed by producer Christopher Nolan who replied “a real movie wouldn’t do that.” Tell that to Marvel and its fake movies!
Whether the after-credits scene following ‘Justice League’ is comedic or dramatic is unclear at this point.
DC has two films in the works at the moment, ‘Aquaman,’ which just finished filming, and ‘Wonder Woman 2,’ which is still in development. ‘Shazam’ is set to start production early next year, but it is likely that if ‘Justice League’ will preview a future film, it would be ‘Aquaman’ given that James Wan was directing that film while ‘Justice League’ was in post-production and reshoots.
