One of the many things to love about Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman movie is the incredible the end credits sequence is. It has been a long time since a comic book film had such a visually remarkable credits sequence whether it opens and/or closes the film.
The animation for the film’s comic book-style credits sequence serves as a recap of the narrative that unfolded for the audience. In a way, it satisfies the viewer with its artistry. Also, put in the heart-pounding score in the background, and you’ve got yourself something really special that not many comic book films do anymore.
Fans who have been aching to see that incredible sequence again can now see it online in high definition. You can watch the sequence down below.
Jenkins recently spoke with Art of the Title about the role that this sequence played not only for the film itself, but also as a statement on Diana’s journey to becoming the Wonder Woman we all know and love:
“In our case the title sequence almost became the end of the movie in a beautiful way. You’re right at a moment when you wish you had more and it becomes more. It carries forward the story in a way. What the final moment of the film is best at is saying “Now there’s Wonder Woman, now Wonder Woman is born.
The movie is the journey all the way to Wonder Woman and it’s only at that final moment that she steps into the world and becomes our Wonder Woman. And so having that kind of comic book-style recap of the myth of Wonder Woman — you just saw the story but this is the myth of who she is — it felt like a really great way to be like “now she’s this and this is her backstory!”
Wonder Woman was a soaring success artistically, mainly due to the fact that Jenkins and company approached Diana’s origin story as a timeless love-letter to femininity and heroism. The end credits sequence adds to the epic scale and also showcases that old-fashioned storytelling and filmmaking still has its place – especially when it comes to the superhero genre.
Wonder Woman is in theaters now.
