Is There an End-Credit Scene in The Suicide Squad?
DC and Marvel have a tradition of including post-credit scenes in the movies to set up a sequel or some other superhero movie. So, it’s obvious for fans to expect an end-credit scene in The Suicide Squad. Well, you should know that the movie has not one but two post-credit scenes.
Both post-credits scenes are integral to the story, so you should very well stick your screens if you don’t want to miss anything.
Now, if you’ve already watched the movie and want to learn what the post-credit scenes actually mean, keep reading the rest of the article. However, if you’re about the watch The Suicide Squad, here’s a fair warning: SPOILERS AHEAD.
Post-credit Scenes Explained
We see Weasel drowning during the beach landing in the movie’s first sequence, making everyone believe that the character is dead. However, in the first post-credit scene, we find out that Weasel actually survives the landing.
The second post-credit, on the other hand, is more interesting.
In the movie’s final act, we see Bloodsport (Idris Elba) shooting Peacemaker (John Cena) in the throat. Apparently, Peacemaker was secretly working for Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), and Bloodsport couldn’t accept the betrayal and ends up shooting the anti-hero.
Well, in the second post-credit scene, we see Amanda Waller getting Peacemaker pulled out of the rubble to treat his injuries. So, it very much clears up that John Cena’s character in TSS isn’t dead. That makes sense because John Cena confirmed that he would be returning in the Peacemaker TV series, scheduled to come out on HBO Max in 2022.
So, the second post-credit scene sets up the storyline for the upcoming TV series. There’s a chance that the show will pick up directly where the movie left off. However, but we can’t be sure until show creators reveal more information about it.
