In the last scene of Now You See Me, when the Four Horsemen go to the park, Henley Reeves asks whether they have the cards.

Edit

I'm asking about this scene. Does it mean that Dylan Rhodes isn't the one giving them the cards? What's the point of that scene? it's confusing

That scene is from the extended cut on the DVD, and according to the director: "...the beginning of the sequel" - The locked crates probably contain the stuff the they need for their next job, and to open them they need cards. –  Oliver_C Sep 16 '13 at 12:06
    
@Oliver_C so that scene doesn't mean anything right? at least not yet –  Fischer Sep 16 '13 at 13:28
    
@Oliver_C Do I sense an answer there? –  Napoleon Wilson Sep 17 '13 at 12:10

At the beginning of the movie each of the Four Horsemen gets a tarot card as an invitation to the place where they all meet and are presented with the plan. He's referring to those four tarot cards.

These are actually the cards you're asking about - if you note in this scene each of the flight cases have the associated eye from the tarot card set given out at the start of the movie. –  Flyk Oct 27 '13 at 21:44

The final instructions the Horsemen receive are to go to the park. There they find the card-tree of Lionel Shrike, featuring the King of Spades/Swords.

You need five cards for a Tarot reading. The five cards are in order of appearance: King of Spades/Swords, Lovers, Hermit, High Preistess [sic], Death. - TVTropes

So when they saw the fifth card (they had the four cards delivered to them a year back), they knew the reading was complete. To read, they now needed all five cards together. That's what they were referring to.

The King of Spades/Swords is the card referring to the man with the "idea" - their benefactor. Who taught them magic and made them into the Four Horsemen.
