Candyman post-credits scene: Is there a post-credits scene in Candyman?
CANDYMAN is in theaters today, but will there be an end credits scene in the horror sequel?
Universal Pictures has published a direct sequel to the original Candyman film that retcons the other sequels and has the same name as the first picture, following in the footsteps of 2018’s Halloween. Three decades after the initial horror, Candyman (2021) follows Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s painter Anthony McCoy. Is there, however, a post-credits scene in Candyman?
In the Marvel sense, there isn’t a post-credits sequence. After Candyman, though, there is further content.
The credits roll with further shadow puppetry after Tony Todd’s cameo as Daniel Robitaille nicknamed Candyman.
However, before explaining what occurred to Anthony, the visuals tell the various Candyman origins that were discussed during the film.
After that, there’s a message with a link to candymanmovie.com/impact, which links to more information on racial injustice and supporting Black artists.
This page contains a link to The Impact of Black Horror, a 20-minute YouTube video that can be viewed below.
It’s a filmed debate on “how Candyman goes beyond trauma to honor the residency and inventiveness of Black culture,” moderated by William Burke star Colman Domingo.
Dr. Wendy Ashley, Tananarive Due, Lorenzo Lewis, and Yolo Akili Robinson are among the roundtable specialists.
Nia DaCosta directed Candyman and co-wrote the screenplay with Jordan Peele and Win Rosenfeld.
Oscar-winner Peele is best recognized for his work on the horror films Get Out and Us, which he wrote, directed, and produced.
He’s now working on Nope, a Monkeypaw Productions film in which he reunites with his Get Out co-star Daniel Kaluuya.
Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, Barbie Ferreira, Brandon Perea, and Michael Wincott feature in the new film.
Jesse Plemons had joined the cast of Nope before declining a part in Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon.
Plemons will play alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro in the American Western criminal drama.
In addition, Nope began production in Los Angeles in June of this year, with only the poster shown so far.
