At a whopping 153 minutes, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice packs in numerous Easter Eggs, cameos, references and nods. Some people are actually belittling Zack Snyder’s movie as being nothing more than a two-and-a-half-hour Justice League Easter Egg (but there’s certainly more to it than that).
There’s so much to uncover but luckily, YouTuber Mr Sunday Movies has unveiled every single hidden secret in Batman v Superman for us all to enjoy. Snyder’s movie heavily references a number of famous Batman and Superman stories; the armoured Batsuit from Dark Knight Returns, The Death of Superman, A Death in the Family, and The Flashpoint Paradox. Watch in the video below:
Snyder wasn’t lying when he said that Dawn of Justice would plant clues and hints about Dc’s upcoming slate of movies. For example, the Robin suit clearly hints that he was killed by Jared Leto’s Joker (we’re expecting this to play out in Suicide Squad).
In addition, we caught a glimpse of a Mother Box during the introduction of Cyborg, which is linked to the deleted scene featuring Lex Luthor that was released this week. Of course, these Mother Boxes belong to the most formidable DC villain of them all; Darkseid. Speaking of, Darkseid’s Parademons (flying monkey things) were glimpsed during Batman’s terrifying Knightmare sequence.
There’s also a host of cameos, as covered by Mr Sunday Movies, including Jimmy Olsen, Vicki Vale (played by Kim Basinger in Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman). Oh yeah, Snyder also managed to subtly include a nod to Jack Nicholson’s Joker from Burton’s Batman.
