Wonder Woman 1984 saves a very special moment for the credits - we explain the scene

Wonder Woman 1984 finally made it to Germany. Around two months after its US launch, the DC blockbuster is now available as a stream on Sky Ticket. Gal Gadot slips once again into the role of the iconic Suerpheldin, who was last seen in the cinema alongside Batman, Superman and Co. in Justice League.

In contrast to the first part, Wonder Woman 1984 comes up with a small encore after or during the credits. This is a teaser for a future DC project, as is the case with most comic book adaptations. In return, the post-credit scene surprises with a very special appearance.

Warning, spoilers!

Wonder Woman 1984: This is what happens in the post-credit scene

In the post-credit scene of Wonder Woman 1984 we follow a mysterious character who saves a child from a falling power pole. At first glance, it appears to be Wonder Woman. Shortly afterwards, the figure that we have only seen with its back so far turns around and reveals its name: Asteria.

As it turns out, Asteria didn't die. Instead, she tells the mother of the rescued child that she has been helping people on earth for a while. Whether she ever ran into Diana remains unclear. The post-credit scene thus picks up on a side note from the previous story with a little twist.

Wonder Woman 1984 brings back Lynda Carter

The special thing about the scene, however, is less the unexpected return of Asteria than the cast of the character. It is played by none other than Lynda Carter, her character the first actress to bring Wonder Woman to life in a live-action guise - namely in the television series of the same name from the 1970s.

Wonder Woman 1984 bows to the actress and shows impressively that her legacy has not been forgotten for a long time. Quite the FMOVIES thanks to Asteria, it now lives on in the DC Universe. It's not the first time Lynda Carter has returned to the comic book world for a little cameo.

Will we see more of Lynda Carter in the DC Universe?

Probably not. The post-credit scene of Wonder Woman 1984 is primarily a beautiful gesture. It would still be conceivable that Lynda Carter would appear again as Asteria in the previously announced Wonder Woman 3, for example to give Gal Gado's Wonder Woman some wise advice - from one brave warrior to another.

If we spin around a bit, Lynda Carter could even slip into the Amazon's armor again. After all, the upcoming The Flash film opens the door to the multiverse. This brings Michael Keaton's Batman into the DC timeline, in which Ben Affleck's dark knight moves. So why not Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman too?
