‘Justice League’ Post-Credits Scene Explained

Justice League post-credits scene explained

The DC cinematic universe has avoided post-credits scenes thus far. The closest they’ve come is a mid-credits scene in last year’s Suicide Squad. But Justice League, WB’s biggest superhero movie yet, is taking a page out of the Marvel playbook: it features a mid-credits scene and a post-credits scene. Since the movie is in theaters now, let’s talk about what those scenes entail and how they set up things to come.

Warning: spoilers for Justice League and both of its credits scenes lie ahead.

Martian Manhunter movie

When Justice League hits theaters this weekend, one traditional member of the team will be absent: the Martian Manhunter. But fret not, Manhunter fans: Justice League producer Charles Roven is totally down for a Martian Manhunter movie. Just when that might happen, however, is anyone’s guess.

Each movie in the DCEU can be parsed by its sound. Man of Steel remains — to me, at least — the best of the DC films so far; the theme at its core is simplistic, but it aches and it soars, and speaking on a broader level, it also comes closest to synthesizing the superhero with the present climate in the way that Christopher Nolan’s Batman films did. The score for Batman v. Superman is operatic, almost gothic (“The Red Capes Are Coming” is remarkable in this regard, baroque in style and an inverse to the Man of Steel theme), impressive in its ambition even if doesn’t necessarily manage to pull it all together. Wonder Woman is bright, more “classic” in terms of the film scores it evokes, in line with its less dreary tone and how it hews closer to the usual superhero movie template.

All this is a way of saying that Justice League falls somewhere in the middle of the pack. Danny Elfman gives us notes of insanity reminiscent of his work on the Burton Batman movies, but what glimpses we get of a unique film are lost in trying to incorporate bits and pieces of the previous films, not to mention the incessant noise that comprises the fight sequences. This isn’t to say that it isn’t good. On the contrary, Zack Snyder’s latest film is fine; it’s just perhaps a little lesser than its predecessors due to how much it tries to scale back its ambitions and play by the rules.

If the proliferation of Olaf merchandise wasn’t a sign that Josh Gad is fast becoming one of the most powerful figures in Hollywood, then the Netflix superhero comedy that he’s producing could be.

I exaggerate, but Josh Gad has certainly become one of the hardest-working people in Hollywood in the past few years since he broke into mainstream success with Frozen, quickly accumulating movie credits like Beauty and the Beast and Murder on the Orient Express. But a padded IMDB page isn’t the only thing he got out of this — it seems that Gad has formed strong bonds with co-stars Luke Evans and Daisy Ridley, so much so that the two of them have signed onto his Netflix comedy Super-Normal.

Superman in Justice League

Justice League, the latest adventure in the muddled DC Extended Universe, has problems. But, surprisingly enough, Superman isn’t one of them. After two movies that misunderstood what makes the Man of Steel tick, Justice League finds fun new ways to let Superman be Superman again. All it took was a brutal death and a sudden resurrection.

Spoilers for Justice League follow.

The Punisher is finally here to punish those who escaped justice. After crossing paths with Daredevil, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) now has his own series. He’s trying to keep a low profile, growing a bushy beard and working construction, but he can’t seem to stay away from violence.

Steve Lightfoot created Punisher series, but his career includes producing gigs on Hannibal, Narcos and The Crimson Petal and the White. Lightfoot spoke with /Film by phone this week about the latest Marvel Netflix show, which arrives on November 17, 2017.

Justice League Batman featurette

We’re only a few hours from the official release of Justice League, but some attention has jumped ahead to director Matt Reeves’ planned take on The Dark Knight with his solo movie The Batman. Ben Affleck, the most recent actor to don the cape and cowl, just said he’s looking for “a graceful and cool way to segue out of” the role. And now a new rumor has surfaced that claims Reeves has someone in mind to take over the role of the Caped Crusader if Affleck decides to step down – and the new contender was actually a candidate for the role before Christian Bale was cast in Batman Begins.

Who is rumored to be the replacement choice for The Batman actor? Find out after the jump.
