It seems that not a day goes by without a fresh batch of news about the once-mythical Snyder Cut — director Zack Snyder’s vision of 2017’s disappointing Justice League. Snyder famously left the director’s chair in the middle of the project to deal with the tragic death of his daughter, and Joss Whedon finished the film in his absence.
We now know that the long-awaited Snyder Cut will arrive on HBO Max as four hour-long episodes before being released as a single, super-long movie and that it will feature a reported two and a half hours of unseen footage.
In fact, it appears that the theatrical cut of Justice League only featured 30 minutes or so of Snyder scenes, so fans will be treated to all-new elements like Ray Porter’s Darkseid and even the inclusion of Jared Leto’s Joker in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
However, there’s still one important element of Snyder’s Justice League that has so far remained a mystery: Will there be a post-credits scene?
The Snyder Cut will not have a post-credits scene
As fans know, the theatrical version of Justice League features a post-credits scene, which shows Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) in a meeting with Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello), talking about a plan to counter the Justice League with a league of their own.
Since Mangianello has teased the existence of an “original end credit scene” and Snyder seems intent on tinkering with everything else in the film, it makes sense that fans want to find out whether there’s something cool in store once the credits stop rolling on Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
However, it appears that Snyder doesn’t much care for the post-credits fare. In a recent Q&A session Snyder held on his Vero account (via Reddit), user @zainxy asked whether the director plans to include an after-credits stinger in his cut of Justice League. The answer was short and definitive: “No,” Snyder replied.
So, there you have it. No post-credits surprises for the Snyder Cut. While the decision might seem strange for viewers who are used to expecting them in superhero movies, it doesn’t come completely out of the blue. After all, Snyder’s previous DCEU efforts, Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, also opted for precisely zero post-credit scenes.
