‘Suicide Squad Will Include A Mid-Credits Scene


Unlike every Marvel Studios movie, DC has not forced audiences to stick around beyond the credits for their DCEU movies. Man of Steel nor Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had any kind of extra scene or tag to tease a future movie which has now become expected with Marvel movies since 2008’s Iron Man. However it appears that this will change with the release of Suicide Squad that will feature an important scene dropped into the middle of the credits. WB have also released the first track from the the Suicide Squad score, check out “Task Force X” by Steven Price below.

It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

Suicide Squad is the next film in the DC Extended Universe following Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Written and directed by David Ayer and the film stars Viola Davis, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz , Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne, Adam Beach, and Karen Fukuhara in her feature film debut.

Suicide Squad opens worldwide in 3D, and in 2D, and in select IMAX 3D theaters on August 5, 2016.

  • Marvel has never forced me to watch the credits of a movie. In fact, nobody has ever forced me to do that. Some poor wording there, dude.

    • Daniel

      The quality of the writing on this site is extremely weak.

      • Marquis de Sade

        Awww man, it don’t be that bad.

        • It all depends on the writer, really. One or two of them are actually good writers, and the others are hit or miss.

    • Axxell

      You mean I’m the only fan whose theater attendant points a gun to my head to force me to watch the after credit scenes?!

      Sho you right. We be stayin’ under our own free will cuz it be a moral imperative to wait for them mid and after credit tags.

    • Joey Wabi-Sabi

      Oh please, stop taking everything so literal. It’s an expression. Having post-credit scenes FORCES you to sit through the credits IF you want to see the extra scene. Is that better for you? The word FORCE is still completely valid in the sentence. It’s not as though you have an option to fast forward through the credits do you? NO. You’re only option is to sit through the credits and wait. When you only have ONE option to achieve a goal, the correct word to use is FORCED. You are forced to do something, in order to get what you want (which in this case is to watch the post credit scene). So yes, Marvel does FORCE their fans to sit through 6 minutes of endless credits in order to watch a 45 second extra scene.

      • I mean, someone who thinks constantly typing words in CAPITAL LETTERS is a good way to make a point might also feel forced to do things while watching movies. Is everything a conflict with you?

        It’s not that writing always has to be literal. It’s more that the sentence reads as an incomplete thought. No, it’s not forcing us, but someone being less than charitable could say they’re forced to watch the credits if they want to see bonus scenes.

        It’s a childish complaint for the most part, though if someone wanted to bring up the few occasions that an actual piece of the film’s story got stuck in the credits, that’d at least be worthy of discussion.

        • Joey Wabi-Sabi

          “It’s a childish complaint”.
          This is the only part of your response that makes any sense at all, and the only part I agree with.

          Tell me something – do you enjoy watching the full credits at the end of movies? Do you know anyone who likes watching movie credits for 5+ minutes just for fun? Can you try to guess how many people around the world enjoy watching movie credits? Before Marvel started making movies 8 years ago, can you tell me how many times you went to the movies and actually sat through the entire end credits?
          I can guarantee the answer to all of these questions is NO/NO/ZERO/NONE. You know why? Because people do not enjoy watching movie credits. And yet now, millions of people sit through 7+ minutes of tortuous movie credits that they do not enjoy, just to get to that end credits scene. You know what its called when someone does something they do not enjoy doing? FORCED. Marvel fans are forced to sit through credits now. Unless you’re the only person in the world who actually enjoys the end credits, then the only word to describe it is “forced”. Marvel’s post-credit ritual for 8 years has now forced fans to sit through the credits of all their movies. There is no other word to describe it.
          I’m sorry if you don’t like feeling forced to do things you don’t enjoy, but that’s the hard truth. Marvel has forced you and millions of fans to do something that no one in the world has ever enjoyed doing for generations – to sit through ending movie credits. What am I missing here?

          • I mean, your opinions aren’t unreasonable, but you express them like a tool. And yes, I often sat through credits before marvel started making movies. Even now, if I did not feel like sitting through the credits, I would get up and leave. Nobody would even try to stop me.

          • Joey Wabi-Sabi

            Express them like a tool? Because I used a few caps to put extra emphasis on key words in my argument? Sorry if the caps scared you. At least my comments are easy to read and understand. I’m still trying to decipher your first reply. Your 1st and 3rd paragraphs went completely over my head lol.
            And yeah, you could walk out of the theater early during the credits if you wanted to. But this article was specifically talking about people who DO sit through the credits. Watching credits is not enjoyable…so if you do sit through them, you are basically forcing yourself to sit through torturous endless credits in order to see that extra scene. That’s my point. I can’t think of any other word the author could have used.

          • I can try to use smaller words if you want, but that shouldn’t be necessary.

            There’s dozens of different ways he could have expressed the same idea. We could brainstorm them all day, but come on. This is already more effort than I felt like expending on the subject.

            Here’s a couple though:

            “Unlike Marvel movies, the DCEU movies have not had mid-credit scenes so far.”

            “Unlike Marvel movies, the DCEU movies haven’t featured bonus scenes during their credits – until now.”

          • Joey Wabi-Sabi

            Don’t flatter yourself. Nothing you’ve said on this site would qualify as big intelligent words. Your original reply just doesn’t make any sense. You said that because I used capital words that I
            “might also feel forced to do things while watching movies.” What does that even mean? What does caps have to do with feeling forced to do something? I assumed that was just a really really bad attempt at humor, so I ignored it. But now I’m curious. Can you explain the joke you were trying to say there?

            And while you’re at it, go ahead and explain that 3rd paragraph about “the few occasions that an actual piece of the film’s story got stuck in the credits”. This seems completely off topic to me and I’m not sure what you’re even referring to. You’re saying there are only a few movies where the post credit scene was relevant to the actual movie? I can name a bunch. But still, what does that even have to do with the word “force” being used in this article?

            So no, there’s no need to use smaller words with me. But you will need to learn how to start expressing your points a lot more clearer next time.

          • The credit scene continuing the plot of the actual movie is an actual legitimate criticism of the practice, and the author’s sentence implies a criticism.

            I’ve been writing professionally for many years, and I can express myself just fine. Sometimes the fault is with the reader, not the author. Not the case with this article, but whateva. 😛

    More Squad sounds good to me!
