Bad Boys: Ride Or Die does not have a post-credit scene

In contrast to the other films in the franchise, Bad Boys: Ride Or Die does not have a scene the audiences would have to wait for after the end credits. This has a faction of the audience worried, who are theorizing about the multitude of possibilities concerning the small change.

Some people have been quick to think that this means the end of the Bad Boys franchise. However, some think there is still hope for future installments of the movie. Fuelling the rumors of the second faction of the audience is Bad Boys: Ride Or Die star Martin Lawrence, who plays Detective Lieutenant Marcus Miles Burnett.

In an exclusive interview with Empire magazine, Lawrence expressed his interest in continuing with the franchise as long as he can. With fellow actor Will Smith as a witness, the actor said:

"I’m going to carry on as long as my brother carries on. It’ll be very hard to get rid of me."

So, do Lawrence's comments mean that there is more in line for the Bad Boys franchise? Only time will tell.
