Christopher Nolan on Post Credits Scenes: “A real movie wouldn’t do that.” UPDATED: Snyder disputes quote

November 4th, 2014 by Todd Black Comments

When it comes to superhero movies, a post-credits sequence is almost a given. Iron Man kicked it off, and other movies have added a scene to show where things were going.

Yet one superhero movie that didn’t have the post-credits sequence was Man of Steel. Many were surprised at this, but the answer for why it didn’t have one is simple: Christopher Nolan.

During an interview with the Guardian, it was revealed that Warner Bros asked director Zack Snyder to put in a post credits scene at the end of Man of Steel. Nolan shot it down however stating “A real movie wouldn’t do that.”

And thus there wasn’t one. However, it’s important to note that (as of this moment) Nolan is no longer part of the DCU. Movies or otherwise. So while he might not want one, it’s possible we could get some post-credits sequences after movies like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, or any of the others on DC’s slate.


EW are now saying that Zack Snyder has issued the following statementt: “I would never say someone else’s film isn’t ‘a real film.’ The quote is inaccurate.” So, The Guardian, it seems you need to show us the tape!”
