Does The Flash movie have a post-credits scene?

For better or worse, The Flash doesn’t hold back. Throughout its 144-minute runtime, the superhero blockbuster tosses out more alternate universes, cameos, character variants, and shoddy visual effects than audiences will be able to see coming. The Andy Muschietti-directed film fits so much into its core story, in fact, that there isn’t much left for it to do by the time it’s reached its end credits.

That doesn’t mean The Flash doesn’t pack any extra surprises into its credits, though. Heading into the film’s long-awaited opening weekend, here’s what DCEU fans should know about The Flash — namely, whether or not it has any post-credits scenes that they should stay in the theater to see.

How many post-credits scenes are there in The Flash?

There is only one post-credits scene at the end of The Flash. However, as disappointing as that may be to some viewers, it’s worth noting that the film ends with such an unexpected, tongue-in-cheek twist that it doesn’t need to immediately follow it up with another Easter egg or surprise.

That means fans will have to sit through the entirety of The Flash’s end credits if they want to see the film’s only surprise scene. If they do, they’ll find themselves treated to a lighthearted moment between two of the DCEU’s core heroes.

The Flash’s ending may reveal that Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne has been seemingly replaced, once and for all, by George Clooney’s older version of Batman, but the film’s sole post-credits scene informs viewers that not all of the Snyderverse’s heroes have been erased from existence. As a matter of fact, the film’s final scene follows Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) and Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) as they stumble out of a bar together.

Earlier in the film, Barry tried contacting Momoa’s Aquaman only to discover that his first-act decision to save his mother’s life had unintentionally prevented his fellow Justice League member from ever being born. Their reunion in The Flash’s post-credits scene, therefore, assures viewers that Barry did succeed in correcting most of his past mistakes when he went back in time again in the film’s third act.

As for the scene itself, it all takes place on the same city block and ends with Barry leaving a blackout-drunk Arthur alone to sleep face down in a sidewalk puddle. Some fans will likely feel cheated by the scene’s unimportance, but given how much uncertainty surrounds some of the DCEU’s Snyderverse characters, it’s somewhat sweet that The Flash ultimately ends with two of the franchise’s heroes simply enjoying a night out on the town together.

The Flash is now playing in theaters.

This week, moviegoers in select locations around the country have the opportunity to strap in for a video game movie that doubles as a sports bio pic: Gran Turismo. After eight years away from the big screen, District 9 director Neill Blomkamp made his cinematic return with the story of professional racer, Jann Mardenborough, a man who owes his career to the skills that he gained from playing the Gran Turismo video games. It wasn't an instantaneous journey for Mardenborough, and the film dramatizes the journey that he embarked on in order to take the wheel on some of the most prestigious race tracks in the world.

Archie Madekwe stars in the film as Jann Mardenborough, with Stranger Things' David Harbour as Jack Salter, Orlando Bloom as Danny Moore, Darren Barnet as Matty Davis, Djimon Hounsou as Steve Mardenborough, Geri Halliwell as Lesley Mardenborough, Takehiro Hira as Kazunori Yamauchi, Josha Stradowski as Nicholas Capa, Daniel Puig as Cai Mardenborough, Maeve Courtier-Lilley as Audrey, Richard Cambridge as Felix, and Emelia Hartford as Leah Vega.

10 cool things to know about Ben Affleck’s canceled Batman movie

Before director Matt Reeves introduced a new vision of Gotham City in The Batman, Ben Affleck was set to helm the film based on a script he wrote centered around his version of Bruce Wayne in the DC Extended Universe. But as Affleck dealt with health issues and lost interest in directing the project and playing Batman, Reeves, and Warner Bros. continued steering in a different direction until an entirely new cinematic universe came to fruition with Robert Pattinson playing the Dark Knight.

Though the final cut of The Batman is arguably one of the best films about the Caped Crusader, many "Snyderverse" fans can't stop wanting to see what could've been. And while Affleck seems happy and healthy, having hung up his cape and cowl, one can't help but want to see his canceled film based on the many cool things that have been revealed over the years.
