Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, and Willem Dafoe, comes to theaters later this month, hoping to breathe new life into the struggling DC cinematic universe and hopefully gain some ground on the almighty Marvel. And once you have enjoyed 143 minutes of the Prince of Atlantis rounding up his faithful fish followers to take on the forces of evil, you will likely find yourself faced with one question: Is there a scene after the credits? After all, sitting around watching the credits roll can be a bore but it might be worth the wait if the movie ends up giving fans an Easter egg or hints at what the sequel might be about. So does Aquaman have a post-credits scene you should stick around for?
Without giving away any plot details or spoiling anything about the movie, we will say that, according to Express, Aquaman follows the recent blockbuster trend and does feature a scene in the middle of the credits. So if you want to have an idea of what may be coming in Aquaman 2, you’re going to want to stick around and watch the credits while everyone else is making a beeline for the exit.
Post-credit scenes have become the norm over the past decade and while Aquaman is already getting a ton of love from critics – it currently has a 75 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes – the newest entry into the DC canon, unfortunately, continues this annoying, completely unnecessary trend and doesn’t let the movie end when it’s supposed to.
Aquaman opens in theaters nationwide December 21.
