“Wonder Woman,” one of the best-reviewed superhero movies in recent memories, is the latest edition in DC Films’ onscreen universe.
But as proven last year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” Warner Bros. seems oddly reluctant to tease future movies at the end of its movies or to reward fans who stay to the bitter end of the credits scroll.
“I’m not going to say we’d never do one,” producer Chuck Roven told Cinemablend in a recent interview. “There was one in ‘Suicide Squad.’ But I don’t think that we want to feel that we’re forced to do something just because we didn’t in the past.”
And “Wonder Woman” has continued the tradition of ending without bonus scenes after the credits.
Not that that should hurt the film — especially given all the early raves for director Patty Jenkins’ take on beloved female superhero played by Gal Gadot.
There’s a lot riding on the success of the film, not least of all because it’s the first superhero film of this size, budget and scope starring, and directed by, women.
According to scores posted Tuesday morning on Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a rating of 96 percent, putting it ahead of popular super hero movies “The Avengers” (92 percent), “Iron Man” (94 percent) and even “Guardians of the Galaxy” (91 percent).
The highest rated super hero movie doesn’t take place in the DC or Marvel Cinematic Universe, though. Pixar’s 2004 animated feature “The Incredibles” has a 97 percent rating.
“Wonder Woman” opens in theaters on June 2.
