FYI, You'll Want to Watch 'Aquaman' Until After the Credits

By Anna Quintana

Even the staunchest of Marvel fans can't say they aren't at least a little bit excited about the release of the standalone Aquaman movie, starring real-life Hawaiian god Jason Momoa. 

In case you need a recap before heading to the theaters, Aquaman, aka Arthur Curry, is the son of the princess of Atlantis, Atlanna (Nicole Kidman), and a lighthouse keeper, Thomas Curry. Initially, Arthur is rejected by Atlanteans because he is a "half-breed" and leaves Atlantis — and his half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson) becomes king. 

When Orm declares war on the surface, his soon-to-be-bride Mera (Amber Heard) refuses to help and instead goes to Arthur for help — and joins Aquaman on his journey to find the Trident of Atlan, so he can reclaim his rightful place as king. Fast forward, and you know there is going to be major showdown between the aquatic brothers. You can guess who will probably win that battle... 

But does Aquaman have an end credit scene? 

Yes. Obviously. You'll want to stay in your seats until the end of the credits (and most likely until Pitbull's "Ocean to Ocean" stops playing) to watch the very short — but very important — scene.
