Patty Jenkins Confirms Wonder Woman 1984’s Post-Credits Scene
Director Patty Jenkins has long said that she has plans for Diana and her fellow Amazons after Wonder Woman 1984 premieres. Of course, It’s going to be a while before either Wonder Woman 3 or the Amazons spinoff gets underway. But we could be getting a small taste of what’s in store later this month. According to Jenkins herself, Wonder Woman 1984 will definitely include a post-credits scene.
Jenkins made the announcement while appearing on CinemaBlend’s ReelBlend podcast. The news might come as a surprise to some, since WW84 has already been screened for critics and early reactions haven’t mentioned anything happening after the credits. But Jenkins said the scene is intentionally being withheld until the movie debuts on Christmas Day.
“Let that be something to save for the audience,” said Jenkins. “Just because, God forbid, somebody writes about it, you’re like, ‘Well, then what fun was it? Now we should have just attached it to the end of the movie!’”
Post-credits scenes have generally been Marvel’s trademark for the last 12 years. However, DC has been known to occasionally include their own bonus scenes either midway through a film’s credits (including Suicide Squad, Aquaman, and Shazam!) or after they’ve stopped rolling entirely (Justice League). Because the DC Extended Universe’s crossovers are no longer a huge priority for Warner Bros., it doesn’t seem likely that WW84’s post-credits scene will tease any other characters’ upcoming films. Instead, it will probably set the stage for one of Jenkins’ other Amazon-themed projects currently in the works.
Wonder Woman 1984 hits theaters and HBO Max on December 25.
