Does “Alita: Battle Angel” have a post-credits scene? We stayed behind long after the credits have started rolling so you won’t have to.

Robert Rodriguez’ “Alita: Battle Angel” is an experience made up of masterful CGI, immersive world-building, and gripping action. Most notable is the hyper-realistic visual effects that tread along uncanny valley territory. But the film is not all visual spectacle. It also offers a heart that beats with family drama, romance, and a bit of vengeance. The film stretches long but ends rather abruptly, so I can’t blame you if you decide to stay a bit longer to see if there’s anything else after the credits start rolling. So is there any after-credits scene?

Is there an “Alita: Battle Angel” Post Credits-Scene?

The short answer is no. “Alita: Battle Angel” does not have a post-credits scene, but it does leave you with a cliffhanger ending that teases a possible sequel. I won’t be giving any spoilers, but just when you think that things are starting to get even more intense, the screen goes black and the credits start rolling. No need to sit through that because there aren’t any additional scenes to expect.

“Alita: Battle Angel” is an adaptation of the 1990 manga “Battle Angel Alita” by Yukito Kishiro, which has also been turned into original video animations. See the film’s synopsis below straight from the press release:

“When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognize, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate cyberphysician who realizes that somewhere in this abandoned cyborg core is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo (Keean Johnson) offers instead to help trigger her memories. But it is only when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city, headed by Vector (Mahershala Ali), come after Ido and Alita that she discovers a clue to her past – she has unique fighting abilities ingrained in her that those in power will stop at nothing to control. If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family and the world she’s grown to love.”

“Alita: Battle Angel” opens February 6 in cinemas nationwide.
