Whenever it’s a superhero movie, the audience can always expect to stay until the end for a mid-credits scene or post-credits scene. So, is there a post-credits scene in The Flash movie?

In The Flash movie, Barry Allen/The Flash goes back in time to prevent his mother’s death. But in doing so, he creates an alternate timeline.

He finds out that in that world, General Zod invades Earth to make it a new Krypton, just like the events that occurred in Man of Steel (2013). He asks for the help of that world’s Batman, which turned out to be Michael Keaton’s Batman.

Barry also looks for Clark Kent/Kal-El/Superman to defeat Zod, but he finds Kara Zor-El/Supergirl instead.

Just like other superhero movies, The Flash has one post-credits scene. So, it’s best to stay until the end of the credits.

While there is no mid-credits scene, there is a post-credits scene at the end that’s worth waiting for.

In The Flash movie’s post-credits scene, Barry Allen tells a drunk Arthur Curry/Aquaman about his experience with the multiverse.

In the scene, Barry helps a drunk Arthur out of a bar and explains that there are many versions of Batman and that they are all Bruce Wayne, but each of them was a completely different person.

However, as for Aquaman, they are all "pretty much" the same guy, “lovable” and “furry”. Barry then tries to explain what happened in his timeline, but Arthur falls into a puddle.

Barry tells Arthur to get up, but the latter demands more beer. Arthur then gives Barry his ring, which is some Atlantean treasure, so that he could get more beer.

While the post-credits scene may not have a big reveal about the DC Universe (DCU) or a Flash sequel, it does explain some things.

Unlike Batman (whose versions are different persons), Aquaman is "pretty much" the same person. This explains why Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (Aquaman 2) will not really be affected by changes in the timeline. It also suggests that Jason Momoa will continue to play Aquaman in the DCU.

So, the post-credits scene of The Flash movie is a funny scene that gives some information at the same time. It also makes us look forward to Aquaman 2.

The Flash is now playing in theaters.
