AQUAMAN AND THE LOST KINGDOM's Post-Credits Scene Reportedly Leaks And It Doesn't Sound Worth Waiting For AQUAMAN AND THE LOST KINGDOM's Post-Credits Scene Reportedly Leaks And It Doesn't Sound Worth Waiting For

Warner Bros. held fan screenings for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom earlier this week, and that's led to some potential spoilers for the sequel surfacing, including a description of the post-credits scene.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has undergone multiple rounds of reshoots and even studio executives are thought to have got involved in the editing room. It's no wonder then that most fans don't have particularly high hopes for the final DC Extended Universe movie. 

Once upon a time, The Flash ended with Michael Keaton's Batman a permanent part of the DCEU. The actor later shot a cameo in the Aquaman sequel which, as far as we're aware, was going to see the Caped Crusader recruit the King of Atlantis as part of the build to a Crisis on Infinite Earths movie. 

When release dates shifted and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom was briefly set to arrive before the Scarlet Speedster's first solo outing, the scene was reshot with Ben Affleck to avoid confusing fans. Has either version survived? Apparently not. 

Following fan screenings earlier this week, we're hearing that the movie's sole post-credits scene features Orm (Patrick Wilson) eating a burger. He sees a cockroach nearby, picks it up and places it in his burger. He then eats it and smiles, a payoff to a gag from earlier in the story (a glimpse of that scene can be seen below).

None of this is overly surprising as Affleck was also cut from The Flash's post-credits scene because DC Studios doesn't want to tease stories which won't be picked up on in the new DCU. Still, we know many of you will be disappointed. 

We can't 100% confirm this is the stinger quite yet - we'll have full spoiler breakdowns for you soon - but have received the same description from at least a couple of different sources. 

Director James Wan and Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa - along with Patrick Wilson, Amber Heard, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Nicole Kidman - return in the sequel to the highest-grossing DC film of all time: Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

Having failed to defeat Aquaman the first time, Black Manta, still driven by the need to avenge his father’s death, will stop at nothing to take Aquaman down once and for all. This time Black Manta is more formidable than ever before, wielding the power of the mythic Black Trident, which unleashes an ancient and malevolent force. To defeat him, Aquaman will turn to his imprisoned brother Orm, the former King of Atlantis, to forge an unlikely alliance. Together, they must set aside their differences in order to protect their kingdom and save Aquaman’s family, and the world, from irreversible destruction.

All returning to the roles they originated, Jason Momoa plays Arthur Curry/Aquaman, now balancing his duties as both the King of Atlantis and a new father; Patrick Wilson is Orm, Aquaman’s half-brother and his nemesis, who must now step into a new role as his brother’s reluctant ally; Amber Heard is Mera, Atlantis’ Queen and mother of the heir to the throne; and ; and Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, a fierce leader and mother with the heart of a warrior.

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is Black Manta, committed more than ever to avenge his father’s death by destroying Aquaman, his family and Atlantis. Also reprising their roles are Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus and Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin.

The screenplay is by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, from a story by James Wan & David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and Jason Momoa & Thomas Pa'a Sibbett.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom splashes down into theaters on December 22.

This is actually very deep. Just like a cockroach, the DCEU overstayed its welcome.
MyCoolYoung - 12/19/2023, 4:56 PM
I'll have to rewatch aquaman. I don't remember how their relationship waa resolved
TheLobster - 12/19/2023, 5:08 PM
[frick]ing dumb. They should have included the Affleck scene.
Batmangina - 12/19/2023, 5:15 PM
It should have been Batfleck with GIANT TITS to setup the Crisis With Infinite Genders crossover.

@Batmangina - You and your giant t1ts mate, they're the key to saving any franchise.

That roach looks so real!

DocSpock - 12/19/2023, 5:21 PM

man eating a bug is exactly the correct final send off for the DCFU.

AnthonyVonGeek - 12/19/2023, 5:24 PM
I bet they thought that would be all artsy and edgy. 🙄🥱😴
WhatIfRickJames - 12/19/2023, 5:25 PM
The scene opens with Orm in the Amazon with my mom when she was researching spiders right before she died…
TiberiousOmega - 12/19/2023, 5:31 PM
I watch the end scene and movie when it gets released on the HBO app in a month.
ObserverIO - 12/20/2023, 4:58 AM
@TiberiousOmega - I might not even watch it then, tbh. I've said that about a few films and they're still just sat there on the app a year or so later.

I might watch this when it's already been on MAX for a year. Or sometime after they give it to Netflix.
TiberiousOmega - 12/21/2023, 5:49 PM
@ObserverIO - That’s kind of how I feel about Blue Beatle. It’s on Max now, and I do like the character, but I still can’t get myself to watch it.
KaptainKhaos - 12/19/2023, 5:33 PM
Crazy how the first made a Billy and this will barely make anything
BlackSpider - 12/19/2023, 5:48 PM
@KaptainKhaos - Hrm. I wonder other movie had similar issue.
KaptainKhaos - 12/19/2023, 5:51 PM
@BlackSpider - Wonder Woman 1984, when Patty Jenkins tried to Marvelize it
vectorsigma - 12/19/2023, 7:06 PM
@KaptainKhaos - like The Marvels, right?
KaptainKhaos - 12/19/2023, 8:16 PM
@vectorsigma - never saw it, so I have no opinion
vectorsigma - 12/19/2023, 9:29 PM
@KaptainKhaos - fair enough!
ObserverIO - 12/20/2023, 5:00 AM
@KaptainKhaos - Crazy how the first made a billy.

These DCEU movies were all truly flavors of the week
Batmangina - 12/19/2023, 10:23 PM
@JFerguson - WB shit and fell back in it - Aquaman and Shazam! and Wonder Woman accidentally outkicked their coverage in the midst of the CBM boom and they actually thought any CGI laden spectacle would generate big bucks even if it was the drizzling shits as all three of their sequels will bear out.

What a weird set of pointless post credit scenes in both Flash and this. Why even bother having them there?
WhateverItTakes - 12/19/2023, 6:23 PM
Ironically the cockroach was played by Jennifer Holland
bobevanz - 12/19/2023, 6:28 PM
After credit scenes aren't what they used to be. The ones with the second are always a one off joke that wasted 8 minutes of my time watching credits. Either make the stupid worthless one first, and just do one. Captain America with the PSA was the peak lol
bobevanz - 12/19/2023, 6:29 PM
*either do the stupid one first and the important one last, or just do one. Making theater crew wait for a dipshit to eat a cockroach.. god I hate these movies nowadays lol
Order66 - 12/19/2023, 6:28 PM
I will wait til it’s on HBO MAX since this is the last DCEU movie.

Dammit! I was hoping for a drunk Aquaman face down in a puddle. Respect.
vectorsigma - 12/19/2023, 7:10 PM
Will be watching today and marvel lotalists can hate on this all they want. Im already happy this year when their movie, The Marvels flopped 😂

@vectorsigma - misery loves company
