Will there be a post credit scene on Zack Snyder’s Justice League? The filmmaker has provided a definitive answer ahead of next year’s release on HBO Max. Snyder is finally starting to finalize his vision for the DC Comics adaptation more than three years after it originally hit theaters. It will include hours of new footage, but will anything happen during and / or after the credits?
Warning: Potential spoilers for Zack Snyder’s Justice League to follow. For those who want to be surprised by the recording, for lack thereof, when it comes to a post credit scene, return now. On the social networking site Vero, which Snyder frequently uses, a fan outright asked if the legendary Snyder Cut would feature a post-credit scene. Without digging into detail, Snyder replied with a simple but definitive “no.” That, it seems, is the end of that. So there’s really no need for fans to go through the credits unless they feel the need to move beyond the hope of some extra footage.
Post-credit scenes have been around for decades, but they were popularized in comic book movies by the Marvel Cinematic Universe in recent years. This is something that DC has also used. In fact, the theatrical release of Justice Leagueattributed largely to Joss Whedon’s rewrites and re-shoots, featured not one but two different post-credits scenes. One saw Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ezra Miller’s Flash race to see who is faster. The other saw the return of Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, with Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke also featured. It plagued the formation of the Injustice League, which ultimately never materialized.
Interestingly, when it was revealed that the Snyder Cut was coming to HBO Max, Joe Manganiello teased the recording of “the original final credit scene.” Manganiello was also featured in that reshoots Zack Snyder did for the extensive reduction of Justice League, which will be released as a four-part miniseries on HBO Max. It’s likely that the scene Manganiello was referring to will simply be included in the runtime, rather than being stitched in during the credits. Manganiello, at the time of the film’s first release in 2017, was attached to play the villain in Ben Affleck’s The batter. That version of the project fell apart when Affleck left.
The Snyder Cutl, which is expected to be R-rated, will contain nearly four hours of footage in total. Zack Snyder has stated that we’ve only seen about 25 percent of what’s in store. While much will remain as a surprise, we do know the villain Darkseid will finally make an appearance. Just like Superman’s iconic black suit. No release date for Zack Snyder’s Justice League has just been set, but it’s expected to arrive on HBO Max in the first quarter of 2021. Snyder also recently revealed that there is also talk of a theatrical release. This news comes to us through Comicbook.com.
