Etta Candy returns in Wonder Woman Blu-ray epilogue — does it set up Justice League?

If there's one thing we learned about superhero movies over the summer, it's that people just can't get enough Wonder Woman. Diana of Themyscira's first solo adventure on the big screen has grossed over $800 million worldwide, made Gal Gadot a superstar, and established Diana as the standard-bearer for the DC Extended Universe. Now we're primed to get just a little more of the film.

Yahoo! Movies revealed a sneak peek at an "epilogue" set to appear on the film's Blu-ray release next month. Described in a press release as a scene in which Etta Candy (Lucy Davis in a fan-favorite role) "gets the boys back together for a secret mission," the epilogue seems poised to deliver more fun for the film's supporting characters while also possibly creating a stronger connection between Wonder Woman and Justice League.

In the clip, Etta meets up with Sameer (Said Taghmaoui), Charlie (Ewen Bremner), and Chief (Eugene Brave Rock) to tell them that the Allies have "found something" uncovered by bombings in Belgium.

"It's very old, it's very powerful, and they want us to recover the artifact and deliver it to the Americans."

The clip is brief, and there's no indication just how long the full epilogue will be, but it's certainly gotten fans to think about old, powerful artifacts already established to exist in the DCEU. There are Amazonian weapons, but those are mostly kept on Themyscira. There are Kryptonian artifacts, but it seems unlikely they'd go back to that well again.

Then there are Mother Boxes, the supercomputers of Apokolips first established to exist on Earth in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Trailers for Justice League have already established that the objects have a role to play in that film as well, which makes sense because the New God Steppenwolf is primed to invade Earth. Apparently Etta and the gang will have some part to play in how the world begins to learn what these weird, ultra-powerful artifacts are and what they can do. 

Check out the clip from the epilogue below. You'll be able to see the full thing when Wonder Woman drops on Blu-ray Sept. 19.
