Despite the fifth Pirates movie being billed as “the final adventure” in trailers, a post-credits scene in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales hints at a sixth Pirates movie.

Post-credits scenes (or stingers) are becoming more and more common in tentpole feature films. The most famous use are the Marvel Studios films, which uses mid-credits and post-credits scenes to set up the next films in the franchise.

Now there’s word that Pirates 5 has a post-credits scene that could set up a potential sequel.

Do not scroll down if you have not seen the film and do not want to be spoiled.

Last warning…

Alright, then.

The post-credit scene sees Will Turner (apparently no longer the captain of the Dutchmen) sleeping with Elizabeth Swann (apparently not dead.) There’s a storm outside, and the door creaks open to reveal a familiar visage…

Davy Jones (Bill Nighy) became encrusted with sea life when he turned to “the dark side.”

Apparently Will Turner is visited by Davy Jones, back from the dead… the locker… or wherever he’s been hiding for the past few films.

But.. is it just a dream?

Should a Pirates 6 be greenlit, then it’s very likely it will see the return of one of the series most popular villains.

What do you think? Would you like to see Davy Jones return, or was the character played out already? Personally, he was my favorite villain in the entire Pirates franchise, even if At World’s End was a bit of a mess.

I've loved Disney as long as I can remember. As a former newspaper editor, web developer, and Disney comics freelancer, I'm able to combine that experience into writing about Disney online. I'm also the co-host of a Disney fan podcast called 'Pirates & Princesses.' Opinions mine.


  1. I loved Davy too. I adored him. He was awesome, cool in appearance, etc. That being said, I don’t want him to return; he was played out already. Time for new things. And best of all just end the franchise; good things must come to an end.

  2. I say leave him dead. The scene just seemed an episode of PSTD to me. Will and Elizabeth have been through enough crap already. I would just end the franchise there.

  3. The stinger from At World’s End lists the boy as Young Will Turner, and at that point, Captain Will is still uncursed and very much in control of the Dutchman. By the time we get to the opening of Tales, the boy is Henry Turner and Will and the Dutchman are now re-cursed, and Will seems to have lost some control. As established in Dead Man’s Chest and At World’s End, the ship and the crew and Davey were tasked with ferrying souls across and were only cursed when they refused to do their duty. Most are saying these are plot holes, but my theory is this: Young Will Turner died at sea, Captain Will refused to ferry him, thus recursing the ship and the crew, and lending urgency to his plea to Henry to let him go. With all curses broken at the end of Tales, Magic is king again. Davey is not Davey, we do not see his face, we see his shadow and his claw. Magically affected by not being ferryed, not-cursed Young Will is the new captain of the Dutchman, taking up the visage of Davey Jones, and seeks his father out for vengeance. Seeing his mother, he flees into the night, startling Will awake.

  4. Davy Jones is the best CGI character I’ve ever seen. Love him to death, but he is done. Move on. POTC5 is a good film, just isn’t funny. Babosa’s daughter and Henry were cute. Henry chanelled a lot of Will. I would have liked to see more of him and Jack really. POTC 1-3 made it clear that Jack does have feelings, he likes Will and Liz. POTC5 makes no reference to the fact that Jack is with his friend’s son. The film lacks heart (except from the island on). The fun of the POTC franchise went out the widow with each film.

  5. Will and Elizabeth would never know Jack is alive when he was watching them Will thinks Jack is dead but no it was only Barbossa who died and got sacrifice. if Will and Elizabeth ever sees Jack Sparrow again for what they did to him 10 years ago Jack is gonna get really Pi$$ed off from them for playing more dumb tricky games on him again.

  6. When will the last Pirates of the Caribbean 6 be coming out? either May 17, 2019 or May 25, 2020 can’t tell, but we Johnny Depp has already signed without seeing the script.
