Chalk this one up to a weekend rumour: but we’re hearing a few things about Aquaman‘s post credit scene.
It’s important to say take this with a pinch of salt. There’s no confirmation that the film will even have a post credit scene. But if it does we’re telling you now this might be what happens.
READ ON AT YOUR OWN PERIL!
We’re hearing it will show Randall Park’s Dr. Stephen Shin and Yahya Abdul Mateen II’s Black Manta plotting against Arthur Curry, setting up a considerably larger role for the latter in a possible follow-up.
Director James Wan has pointed out on a number of occasions that the first film will act as an origin for both Arthur AND Black Manta setting him up for a larger role down the line.
Thanks to Discussing Film and ComicBookMovie for pointing this one out.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an acition-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
Aquaman stars Jason Momoa in the title role of Arthur Curry/Aquaman. The film also stars Amber Heard as Mera; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe as Vulko; Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry; Dolph Lundgren as Nereus; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta; with Patrick Wilson as Orm/Ocean Master; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman as Atlanna.
The film is being produced by Peter Safran, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Rob Cowan, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
