Zack Snyder on DC Extended Universe Having After Credit Scenes

When the deleted scene entitled “Communion” was released the Monday after Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was released in theaters, many fans were puzzled and some felt it was desperation, as what was the reason to release a deleted scene so quickly?

It was also announced recently on the set of Justice League that the scene in question was originally going to be an after credit scene that director Zack Snyder decided against doing. Now according to an interview with Comic Book Resources it may have been a new way of teasing the next film.

That deleted scene from “BvS” that was released the Monday after, did you deliberately put it out there to sow the seeds for “Justice League?” Most of us are used to getting deleted scenes on a Blu-ray.

I kind thought like, “Oh, that would be a cool after-credits sequence.” But then I was like, “I don’t know, can I do that?” Because Marvel does that. “Is that a thing?” So we were like, “Oh! Well, maybe there’s another way to do it.”

So it looks like we may still be getting those scenes that hint at the next film, but online. Is this something you want to see more of or would you rather them go with the norm and have an after credit scene?

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

    Please, avoid after-credits scenes, Snyder.

    Meh, I’d prefer it the post credit way. I love waiting after the credits and putting up online just feels like “this is a deleted scene so it’s not cannon to the overall story”.

    nah it feels rather forced when you get a clip after the credits plus its usually dissapointing

  • batman/superman fan

    How could this be an after credit scene when the film ended with Lex in prison and bald.

    • Yeah, it doesn’t make much sense as to why he would believe that would be a good end credit scene, when most end credit scenes are extra scenes that take place after the initial story has ended.

      I heard your mom was in prison and bald.
