Upsetting the status quo when it comes to superhero cinema, the post-credits scenes for Shazam! Fury of the Gods aren't being included in advanced screenings of the sequel. Though some might think they've been delayed because of the recent change in structure at DC Studios, David F. Sandberg recently revealed that's not the case. Instead, the director says they aren't being included to keep some things a surprise for the film's release in theaters.
"I mean, they exist. I think it's more like wanting to save something for the fans on opening day and all that stuff so it doesn't get ou there," Sandberg said in a chat with UPROXX. "They're mostly just fun little scenes. It's not like, 'Here's the new Superman.' I can't spoil too much, but you get to see some characters that are fun to see."
The news of the post-credits withholding comes days after a new trailer for the movie revealed Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman is set to make an appearance the flick, something that was previously unconfirmed.
