Wonder Woman producer Charles Roven has confirmed that there will be no end-credits scene in the film. A lot of people have a tendency to compare the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the DC Extended Universe, and when it comes to involving several films which exist in the same universe, the MCU has had a string of end-credits scenes to unite their universe. That hasn’t been the case with the DCEU. Except for Suicide Squad, the remainder of their films have yet to have a post-credits scene. But there’s a reason why, according to Roven.
Speaking with CinemaBlend, Roven says that they didn’t want to force the end-credits scene.
“I’m not going to say we’d never do one. … There was one in Suicide Squad. 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.”
And it’s true, they shouldn’t feel forced to do one just because so many other films in its genre have done it. At least fans will know in advance and they won’t have to wait around until the very end for a scene that won’t come.
Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, and David Thewlis.
Wonder Woman will be in theaters on June 2, 2017.
Reasons To Be Optimistic About ‘Wonder Woman’
There’s a fair amount riding on Wonder Woman, DC’s summer blockbuster, for more reasons than just being the first major female superhero movie made. It follows up two divisive entries in the universe, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. While successful, the performances of both at the box office and with critics merited re-evaluation by the filmmakers in the form of corporate restructuring and written mea culpas.
Despite these stumbles, there’s many reasons to be optimistic about Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot was well-received as Diana Prince in Batman v Superman, it’s set in the past, focusing on one character after two ensemble pictures, and both Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns add directorial and comic credibility, respectively. Plus, it’s no small thing that DC Films will beat Marvel Studios to the first female superhero movie, despite the latter having made over a dozen movies to former’s four. It’s important milestone for representation in pop culture.
