It’s not out in the US in cinemas or on HBO Max until tomorrow, Christmas Day, there are reports from other parts of the world that there’s a hidden end scene to Wonder Woman 1984, with clues to what may be in store next for Wonder Woman. If you aren’t in the market for spoilers, stop reading NOW.

Back on 16 December Wonder Woman 1984 was released in the UK, nine days ahead of its US and HBO Max release. The Express immediately revealed what is a spectacular and historical cameo. Once again, the rest of this article contains detailed SPOILERS.

In a podcast chat with Reelblend Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins revealed that the Wonder Woman sequel does have a post-credits scene, something the original 2017 film didn't have.

Before it’s British release, critics were able to review the film prior, but the end credits scene was deemed so secretive it was cut. The Wonder Woman 1984 end credits scene has been revealed and it hints at an exciting future for Wonder Woman 3. WARNING: HUGE SPOILERS AHEAD

Wonder Woman 1984 post-credit scene details

The Wonder Woman 1984 end-credits scene features a knowing cameo from none other than original Diana Prince herself, Lynda Carter.

The 69-year-old former Miss World USA played Wonder Woman, famously, from 1975 to 1979 in the ABC/CBS TV show.

In the end credits scene, she reveals her name is Asteria, an Amazon warrior of Themyscira who was the original wearer of the golden flight armour worn by Wonder Woman in the movie. Asteria in the hidden scene tells Diana and the audience: “I’ve been doing this all this time.”

This could well mean that Lynda Carter will feature prominently in Wonder Woman 3. According to USA Today, Carter said: “[Jenkins] asked me to do a cameo in this.”

Carter continued: “She was in England, and I was doing my concerts.” Unfortunately her singing engagements meant the original Wonder Woman was unavailable to cameo in the film, beyond the token scene at the end.

The 69-year-old added: “At that time we couldn't get our timing together. So, this next time, if she writes me a decent part, I might do it.

Now we can reveal, one day ahead of the release across the US and on HBO Max, that that’s exactly what happened, and that this means there will be a bigger role for her in Wonder Woman 3. Wonder Woman 1984 Director Patty Jenkins has already hinted that the third movie may have a contemporary feel and could even be set in the future.
