The Mortal Kombat reboot movie has bicycle-kicked its way into theaters and HBO Max, and many fans may be wondering, is there a post-credits scene? Has director Simon McQuoid stuck an additional Easter egg at the end, or is it safe to leave once the credits roll?
It certainly wouldn’t be a surprise to see an extra mid or post-credits scene given that we already know sequels are being discussed. In fact, Sub-Zero actor Joe Taslim is currently signed on for four (!) more Mortal Kombat movies, should Warner Bros. opt to continue this new incarnation of the franchise. Why not start teasing those sequels now?
Read on for the answer as to whether or not you need to stick around during the credits (unless of course you want to read the names of all the people who worked on the film, in which case you totally should stick around!).

Mortal Kombat Does Not Have a Post-Credits Scene
Sorry, but Mortal Kombat does not have any additional footage hidden during or after the credits.
Perhaps that’s not surprising, given that the movie itself is pretty direct about dropping hints as to what’s coming next. The ending directly sets the stage for a sequel, and more than one MK icon appears in cameo form, suggesting they’ll be playing bigger roles in Round 2. In fact, the final scene (and shot) of the film feels like it could’ve served as a post-credits scene, but McQuoid and the studio obviously decided to use it to end their film.
