Christmas just got even better. Not only will Wonder Woman 1984 hit theaters (and HBO Max) on Dec. 25, but it’s also going to have an extra scene after the credits, according to director Patty Jenkins.
In a podcast chat with Reelblend this week, Jenkins revealed simply, “Yes,” the Wonder Woman sequel will have a post-credits scene, something thedidn’t have. We didn’t hear about it earlier, because the scene wasn’t included in for reviews.
“Let that be something to save for the audience,” Jenkins said, elaborating on why the scene was deliberately excluded from the early press version. “Just because, God forbid, somebody writes about it — you’re like, ‘Well, then what fun was it? Now we should have just attached it to the end of the movie!'”
If you’re watching the HBO Max stream (at no extra cost), you’ll be able to see the scene too. “It will be on streaming, as well,” Jenkins confirmed.
Jenkins isn’t giving any hints on what that post-credits scene will involve. But based on her stance when it comes to DC Comics crossovers, and her plans for a third Wonder Woman film and a spinoff focused on hidden island Themyscira’s Amazon warriors, it’ll stick to the Jenkins Wonder Woman-specific story (it probably won’t link to upcoming DC movies like, or even , for example).
“I think that there are people out there doing great mash-up movies,” Jenkins said at CCXP last weekend. “That’s not my cup of tea. I love a very powerful singular story. You never know if something will come along that will make us feel like that would be intrinsic to the story, but I would never do it for any other reason.”
