If you’re sitting down in theaters to watch a superhero blockbuster, it’s a pretty safe assumption one should remain seated until the credits finishing rolling entirely. Post-credits scenes have become a must-have for any genre film, and Blue Beetle embraces the model faithfully. We caught up with Beetle helmer Angel Manuel Soto to break down one of the film’s massive post-credits stingers, and here’s what he had to say about the moment. Full spoilers up ahead for Blue Beetle from DC Studios, proceed with caution if you’ve yet to see the movie!

While one of the post-credits scenes featured George Lopez’s Rudy Reyes in a comedic scene, the other confirmed that Ted Kord is alive thanks to the hero using a computer to message his family.

“Ted Kord is alive. The whole movie, Ted Kord is in it without being in it. We have Jenny Kord who has this conflict with her sentiment about her father because he disappeared,” Soto tells us.

Though Blue Beetle has been confirmed to be a part of the new DC Universe, Soto isn’t quite sure where the DC icon could pop up next.

“We wanted to give some closure to her character. Obviously, that closure was a lot of doors to open and that closure comes with the fact that Ted Kord did not die, he disappeared,” the filmmaker adds. “While we don’t know  where he’s at or why he sent that message, we know that he’s going to be somewhere in the future whether it’s by himself or with Booster Gold. Everything is open.”
