While we all know that Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy didn’t have any post-credit scenes that Marvel had made a stay point in their films as of late, it appears that he is also the reason that Zack Snyder’s ‘Man of Steel‘ didn’t have one either.
While Nolan was promoting ‘Interstellar,’ the topic of post-credit scenes was brought up and while he didn’t have a lot to say on the matter he did have one key point to make that fans of Marvel’s films might take offense to. It has to do with why ‘Man of Steel’ didn’t try to lead into a future film in its credits or include something a little more lighthearted after the curtains closed.
“A real movie wouldn’t do that.”
Ouch. Nice little dig at Marvel movies there Nolan.
While I get that we wouldn’t see Superman sitting around with Lois Lane eating Shawarma after the end credits rolled as it wasn’t that kind of a film, a lead into something else might have been nice. In an age where the comic book industry is banging out not just a ton of films but having the majority of them interconnected, this has become an ability to insert a bit of extra humor, fan tribute, and a teaser of things to come. Apparently real movies don’t try to entertain their fans in as many ways as possible according to Mr. Nolan.
While I personally love his films, I would say he is dead wrong on this one and think it is a great additional bonus for theater lovers out there who already are paying a premium for tickets alone not to mention if you want any food or beverage. Ideally with him probably no longer being involved in DC movies that is something we can see change when ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ is released.
What do you think folks. Do real movies have the ability to include extras for the audience at the end or is Nolan, who makes fantastic movies in their own right, out of touch with what many moviegoers enjoy? Share your thoughts below!
