Now, moviegoers expect to linger past the end credits for superhero movies, knowing there will be one or two (or in some cases more) “stingers” teasing the endless sequels and cinematic universes that dominate the pop landscape the culture. Just last month, Marvel Studios stuck two end credits at the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Maniawhich teased the growing threat of Jonathan Major’s villain Kang and the second season of the Disney+ series Loki.
DC are also no strangers to ending scenes with credits and so with the release of their latest film, Shazam! Wrath of the Gods, fans must be wondering if this movie has a post-credits scene or two. Is the future of the DCEU being teased? Do other characters like Batman, Black Adam or The Flash appear? To find out what happens, keep reading!
There’s Shazam! Does Fury of the Gods have subtitled scenes?
SHAZAM! WRATH OF THE GODS – Official Trailer 1
Yes Shazam! Wrath of the Gods there are two end credits that are worth sticking around for after the movie is over.
Shazam! Wrath of the Gods end credits scene #1
The first ending scene occurs after the main credits roll in animated illustrations across the screen. The scene opens with two fan-favorite characters from the HBO Max show A peacemaker, Agent Emilia Harcourt (Jennifer Holland) and John Economos (Steve Agee) walking down a dirt road in a secluded forest. The two exchange dialogue about Amanda Walker (Viola Davis, who does not appear) sending them there to hire someone. The two eventually find who they’re looking for: Shazam.
Shazam is busy exercising his electrical powers, clicking a sign with glee when Emilia and John interrupt him. They have an offer for the young hero: they want him to join a certain team. Emilia says “We want you to join the justice…”
Billy interrupts. “League of Justice? I’m in!” Shazam then proceeds as he always envisioned this moment, only with Wonder Woman offering a spot on the team for them.
Emilia stops him. “No, not the Justice League. We want you to join the Justice Society. She’s referring to the Justice Society of America, a DC Comics superhero team that’s even older than the Justice League and includes Doctor Fate, Sandman (no, not that one) and Wildcat as some of its members. They appeared as supporting characters in 2022 Black Adamwith Fate, Atom Smasher, Hawkman and Cyclone as the core team.
Shazam looks confused at first, then happily accepts. He tells them that it’s a little confusing to have two super teams with “Justice” in their name and searches theasaurus.com on his cell phone to suggest alternate names like Enforcer Society. Finally, he lands in the Avengers Society. “The Avengers Society… I like the sound of that!”
Shazam! Wrath of the Gods end credits scene #2
The second and final captioned scene arrives at the very end of the film after all the captions have been pulled. The scene opens with the camera focusing on a rough sketch on a dirty wall of Shazam hanging from a noose. The camera then cuts to a man sitting on a bed in a cramped prison cell. The man is quickly revealed to be none other than Dr. Sivana, the villain played by Mark Strong in the first Shazam! movie. The villain is still bald, but now has a beard, indicating that some time has passed.
Dr. Sivana’s solitude is interrupted by Mr. Mind, the telepathic green worm who appeared in the credits scene in the first Shazam! movie. Comic book fans know that Mister Mind is one of Shazam’s main antagonists. Sivana pleads with Mr. Uma to get him out of his cell. Mr. Um replies that he can’t, but he’s working on a master plan. There’s just one more thing he needs to do before he applies it. With that, he escapes through a hole in the window of Sivana’s prison, and the film ends.
What plan is Mister Mind up to? And will DC fans finally see an iteration of the Justice Society of America on the big screen? We may never know since the DCEU is pretty much dead and Shazam’s future is up in the air.
