This weekend, a sequel to a movie series that you kind of like is trying to have it both ways. Terminator: Dark Fate is many things, but the easiest way to describe it a sequel to Terminator 2: Judgement Day and also the start of a new franchise of Terminator movies in a new timeline.
Right now, there are a ton of spoiler out there about the movie, but we’re not going to do that. (Though seriously, be careful, because there is some crazy stuff that happens in like the first few minutes.) The big question is right now, does Terminator: Dark Fate have a post-credits scene? And does that post-credits scene set-up a sequel? Here’s the non-spoiler answer.
No! Terminator: Dark Fate does not have a post-credits scene of any kind, though the ending of the film does strongly imply a sequel is coming. The director of Dark Fate, Tim Miller has gone on record saying that he thinks a post-credits scene is a “Marvel thing.”
According to Fandango, Miller said: ” “I love it, but I think it’s a uniquely Marvel thing. So, no.”
So there you have it. There is no after-credits moment with another shot of Arnold Schwarzenegger or Linda Hamilton. When the movie ends, the movie ends. That’s it.
