Ever since we saw Samuel L. Jackson strut into Tony Stark’s house at the end of the original ‘Iron Man’ revealing himself as the MCU’s Nick Fury and hint at the idea of a team of heroes called ‘The Avengers,” fans have eagerly sat in their seats at the end of every superhero movie to see if the studio is going to offer a hint at what to expect next when the credits stopped rolling. Marvel has had so much fun with the idea that in recent years they have had multiple teases that take place during and after the credits, with ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2’ actually having 5 post-credits scenes. And other studios have gotten in on the fun as well, including 20th Century Fox with their ‘X-Men’ films, Universal with their Monsterverse films, and even Warner Bros with a tease at the end of ‘Suicide Squad.’
However, it seems that ‘Suicide Squad’ will be the exception and not the rule for the DCEU, as recent comments have made it clear the DCEU filmmakers are not looking to tease every new production at the end of the current film.
According to ‘Wonder Woman’ producer Charles Roven on the subject:
“I’m not going to say we’d never do one. … There was one in Suicide Squad. But I don’t think that we want to feel that we’re forced to do something just because we didn’t in the past.”
In a business way this makes sense, especially since Warner Bros has had so much recent scheduling turmoil with their DCEU. They would be tying their hands if they were to tease a movie like ‘Batman’ or ‘The Flash’ and lose more directors or have to push it back again, and then all the work that went into teasing that film would seem rather pointless if audiences were going to have to wait 3 or 4 years to see the end product. Plus, it makes sense to differentiate themselves from Marvel and their MCU, who are well know for those post-credit scenes. So sadly friends, there is nothing at the end of ‘Wonder Woman’ teasing ‘Justice League,’ so while I still encourage you to sit through the credits (those people worked damn hard on the movie), do not expect anything fun at the very end.
