Watchmen Showrunner 'Spoils' Eternals Post-Credits Scene

Let's get things clear: Eternals has a post-credits scene just like any Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. Amazingly, Damon Lindelof decided to "spoil" what happens in the sequence. The Watchmen showrunner revealed to his Instagram followers how the scene supposedly gave Dane Whitman what he has been asking for throughout the film.


In Eternals, Dane is blown away when he learns that his girlfriend Sersi has real superpowers. At one point, he asks the Eternal to turn him into a giraffe and this turns into a running joke for the couple.

Lindelof, who was one of the millions of people who watched Eternals over the weekend, decided that Dane deserves to have his wish come true. The Lost producer shared the details about the "post-credits scene" where Kit Harington's character gets turned into a giraffe. Lindelof notes that you only get to see this special scene after getting really drunk and eating some edibles.

Of course, that's not what happens in the post-credits scene. Although it is true that Dane finds a sword and almost touches it, he stops when a voice behind him asks if he is ready to do so. It has since been revealed that the voice belongs to Mahershala Ali, who will play Blade in the MCU reboot.

So it is unlikely that we'll get to see Dane turn into a giraffe anytime soon but the real Eternals post-credits scene did tease his future. The sword is believed to be Ebony Blade and there is a huge possibility that Dane will finally become Black Knight. However, Marvel Studios have not yet confirmed what will happen to the character so we will need to wait for an official update.

Eternals is directed by Chloe Zhao and also stars Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lia McHugh, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Barry Keoghan, Don Lee, Harish Patel, Salma Hayek, and Angelina Jolie. The movie is now screening in theaters.
