Does Black Adam Have A Post-Credits Scene? A Spoiler-Free Guide

The hierarchy of power in the DC universe is about to change, or so says The Rock. That's because "Black Adam" is finally hitting theaters after being stuck in development for years (and years). Dwayne Johnson has been attached to the role for a very long time, but through persistence and a lot of shifts behind the scenes at DC Films, this one finally came to fruition, with director Jaume Collet-Serra ("Jungle Cruise") behind the camera. But now for the ever-important question: do moviegoers have to sit through the credits?

Well, dear reader, we are here to answer that question and let you know in spoiler-free fashion whether or not the movie has a post-credits scene, or scenes, of any kind. That way, you can plan those bathroom breaks accordingly. Again, we will not spoil anything here so read on with ease. Let's get into it.

Does Black Adam have a post-credits scene?

First and foremost, yes, "Black Adam" does have a post-credits scene. Those who are interested in seeing every bit this movie has to offer will have to stay in their seats. To help out a little further on that front, we can tell you that the scene in question comes about halfway through the credits. This is pretty commonplace these days for big superhero movies and Warner Bros. is not breaking tradition with the much-hyped debut of DC's powerful, nearly R-rated anti-hero. So sit back, relax, and don't make a run for the bathroom for just a few extra minutes.

How important is this scene?

Now, for those who would like a little more insight, let's discuss (vaguely and still spoiler-free, we promise!) just how important this scene is. Without giving anything away, we can say with confidence that this scene is very much something that fans of DC superhero movies are going to want to stick around for. While it doesn't necessarily have any bearing on the main movie that unfolds before the credits, it tees up some stuff for the future that will be of great interest. And we'll leave it at that.

The cast of "Black Adam" includes Aldis Hodge ("One Night in Miami") as Hawkman, Noah Centineo ("To All the Boys I've Loved Before") as Atom Smasher, Sarah Shahi ("Rush Hour 3"), Marwan Kenzari ("Murder on the Orient Express"), Quintessa Swindell ("Voyagers") as Cyclone, Mo Amber ("Ramy"), Bodhi Sabongui ("A Million Little Things"), and Pierce Brosnan ("GoldenEye") as Dr. Fate. Collet-Serra directed from a script by Adam Sztykiel, Rory Haines, and Sohrab Noshirvani.

"Black Adam" arrives in theaters on October 21.

In ancient Kahndaq, Teth Adam was bestowed the almighty powers of the gods. After using these powers for vengeance, he was imprisoned, becoming Black Adam. Nearly 5,000 years have passed and Black Adam has gone from man, to myth, to legend. Now released, his unique form of justice, born out of rage, is challenged by modern day heroes who form the Justice Society: Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher and Cyclone.
