‘Wonder Woman,’ Unlike ‘Suicide Squad,’ Won’t Have a Post-Credits Scene
Nowadays, watching a superhero movie without a post-credits scene or two feels almost incomplete. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 gave us an unprecedented four mid-credits scenes, and a few MCU movies before that had had at least two. But the DCEU is different, with both Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman eschewing the post-credits scene rule in favor of letting the movie end at the credits and allowing audience members to go the heck home. However, Suicide Squad did have one — which featured Amanda Waller handing over her files to Bruce Wayne. No doubt that was meant to connect Suicide Squad to the Justice League, but does that mean the upcoming Wonder Woman will also have a scene after the credits have rolled?
Nope, it doesn’t — not according to producer Charles Roven. Suring a Wonder Woman press day over the weekend, Cinemablend asked Roven about the possibility of a Wonder Woman post post-credits stinger, and he said the movie would not have one.
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.
That’s probably for the best, as Suicide Squad might have needed the scene to connect the film to the larger DCEU, while everyone knows Wonder Woman is part of the Justice League. And it’s also good that Warner Bros. doesn’t feel like it needs to cater to some expectation set up by Marvel’s movies, or that it needs to use every one of its films to set up the next one in the series.
