In the world of superhero movies, particularly those from Marvel Studios, the go-to method for building on a cinematic universe has been the post-credits scene. While they’ve also become a staple of Fox’s X-Men franchise, those scenes have been scarce within the DC Extended Universe, so far limited only to director David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. Audiences shouldn’t expect that to change with Wonder Woman.
Speaking with Cinema Blend, producer Charles Roven confirmed the film will not include a post-credits scene, but left open the possibility for upcoming DC releases.
“I’m not going to say we’d never do one. … There was one in Suicide Squad,” he said. “But I don’t think that we want to feel that we’re forced to do something just because we didn’t in the past.”
Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman tells the story of the Amazon princess who, after discovering the body of American fighter pilot Steve Trevor washed ashore on Themyscira, sets out to bring an early end to World War I.
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers … and her true destiny.
Opening June 2, the film stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui and David Thewlis.
