Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom marks the end of Zack Snyder’s DC Extended Universe. However, Jason Momoa’s DCEU sequel still has a post-credits scene.
This week marks the end of an era for the DC Universe, with Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom being the final film before the reboot by James Gunn and Peter Safran begins with 2024’s Creature Commandos and 2025’s Superman: Legacy. While reports have suggested Jason Momoa is out as Arthur Curry in future projects, reliable sources seem to suggest Aquaman 2 will have one post-credits scene.
It’s still unclear exactly what the post-credits scene for Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom will entail. While it could certainly be a tease for a DC Universe project never meant to come, it may be safer to wager the scene is a final send-off to Jason Momoa’s time as Arthur Curry. Though given Aquaman 2 hits theaters in just a few days, DC fans won’t have to wait long to find out.
The future of the DC Universe
James Gunn and Peter Safran told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room, and a unified storyline across film, television, animation, and video game projects. The two explained that the DC Universe could bring back elements from previous DC regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods, The Flash, and Blue Beetle have all been released following the announcement of the new DC Universe, with Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom still slated to hit theaters in 2023. Will the characters from those movies make appearances in the new DCU? Only Gunn and Safran know.
