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. But the post-credit scene surprises with one very special appearance.
Wonder Woman 1984: This is what happens in the post-credit scene
In the post-credit scene of Wonder Woman 1984, we follow one mysterious figurerescuing a child from a falling power pole. At first glance, it appears to be Wonder Woman. Shortly afterwards, the figure, which we have only seen with its back so far, turns around and reveals its name: Asteria.
- Who is Asteria? Diana Prince explains earlier in the film that Asteria is a legendary Amazon warrior who sacrificed herself in battle so that her Amazon sisters could survive. She wore the golden armor that Diana protected in the 1984 finale of Wonder Woman.
The post-credit scene thus picks up on a side note from the previous story with a little twist.

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, the first actress to bring Wonder Woman to life in a live-action guise – namely in the eponymous TV series from the 1970s.

Will we see more of Lynda Carter in the DC Universe?
The post-credit scene of Wonder Woman 1984 is primarily a beautiful gesture. It would still be conceivable that Lynda Carter would appear in the previously announced Wonder Woman 3 again when Asteria shows upFor example, to give Gal Gado’s Wonder Woman some wise advice – from one brave warrior to another.
The Flash movie opens that up Gateway 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?
