Bumblebee, starring Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, and Jorge Lendeborg Jr., comes to theaters this Friday, hoping to breathe new life into the struggling franchise and focus a little less on boobs and explosion and a little more on character and story. And once you have enjoyed 113 minutes of Autobots protecting the earth against the villainous Decepticons, 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 Bumblebee 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 Bumblebee follows the recent blockbuster trend and does feature a scene in the middle of the credits. Although to be fair, the scene is brief and comes very early into the credits, so you only really need to stick around and watch the first minute of the credits before you can start making a beeline for the exit.
Post-credit scenes have become the norm over the past decade and while Bumblebee is already getting a ton of love from critics – many are calling it the best Transformers movie ever made – the newest entry into the battling robot canon, unfortunately, continues this annoying, completely unnecessary trend and doesn’t let the movie end when it’s supposed to.
