Note: The article does reveal Justice League Snyder Cut content.
Rarely does a superhero film director like to install easter eggs and comic universe-related details like Zack Snyder. And this was once again shown in the 4-hour blockbuster Justice League, which just came out on March 18. The easter eggs he introduced are also varied, represented in the form of character lines, images, actions that may have to be reviewed many times before we can “see” all.
Below are easter eggs related to the DC universe, works Zack Snyder has produced, and more broadly popular culture, that have appeared in Justice League Snyder Cut.
Atom is officially present in the DCEU
Martian Manhunter is not the only superhero, aside from the main cast, introduced in Justice League Snyder Cut. DC comic fans certainly recognized the director’s intentions when he let Ryan Choi appear as Silas Stone’s assistant, because he is Atom – who has the ability to shrink the basic body. close whenever you want.
Gardner Fox – The true “father” of Justice League
DC wouldn’t be able to own its most famous team of superheroes without Gardner Fox. In 1940, he and his editor Sheldon Mayer came up with the idea that could be said to be a breakthrough in the comics world at that time: Putting the most popular heroes in the same work, and so Justice Society of America was born in All-Star Comics # 3, starring Flash, Green Lantern, Hawkman, and Dr. Fate, The Sandman, Hour-Man, the Specter and Atom. By the 50s, Fox was working on a similar project and helped create Justice League with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Martian Manhunter, which debuted in The Brave and the Bold # 28.
The name 6-1982 of Mother Box and the story of Cyborg
Justice League Snyder Cut has a glimpse of the history of Mother Boxes and what they can do with it. Another name that the researchers temporarily gave it is 6-1982, but this is not the number randomly devised by Snyder, but closely related to Cyborg. In June 1982, DC Comics published the first chapter of Tales of the New Teen Titans – the super-hit series at the time of its release. This chapter focuses entirely on the half-human, half-mechanical guy: He becomes a disabled person caused by an entity in another dimension; the supernatural intelligence he possessed was the result of experiments his parents had carried out on his body; and there is no Mother Box appearance.
Granny Goodness, Darkseid’s great assistant
Granny Goodness finally appeared on the silver screen at Snyder Cut’s climax, even without saying a word. In the story of New Gods, this is the one who raised children on the planet Apokolips to become elite warriors by the most brutal methods of torture and brainwashing. She is also the commander of the Female Furies, the all-female army of Apokolips, and the greatest enemy of the couple Mister Miracle and Big Barda.
Wildcat sports team
Wildcat (wild cat) is the mascot of the Gotham City University football team, where Victor Stone has gone through some of the most bloody matches before encountering a catastrophic car accident. In the book Manhunter # 17 (1989), Gotham City Wildcats is a professional sports team by Tom Melcher, with the brightest star named Victor Gover. Gover is also the bearer of the genetic mutation, thanks to which he possesses extraordinary physicality and is found guilty of using doping while competing. Melcher was forced to get Gover out of the squad, driving him insane and starting to hunt for both his coach and his former boss under the name Sportsmaster. Gover later became a member of the Suicide Squad.
Despite previous rumors, Hal Jordan and Ryan Reynolds were not featured in the Snyder Cut as the Green Lantern. Instead, we have Yalan Gur, one of Sector 2814’s former protectors. In Green Lantern # 19 (1991), Gur appears as a professional member of the Green Lantern Corps. This guy’s weakness is wood, which is also the reason why he died in the comic version. On the screen, Gur has a slightly more heroic death, while fighting the Darkseid with other tribes.
Justice League and the Avengers never had the opportunity to cooperate / confront each other on the silver screen, but that did not prevent Snyder Cut from installing easter eggs related to rival universes in his blockbuster. First, when Bruce Wayne gets off the plane, the audience can see that the company that made this helicopter is Kvikasilfur (in Icelandic), which means Quicksilver – an overly famous character of X-Men and Marvel. Generally speaking.
The second detail is in the scene where Superman “kills” for other superheroes when they return from the dead. During the confrontation with Flash, audiences can see the names of Zod’s attack victims engraved on nearby headstones, including Ben Parker. Could it be that in the DCEU, Spider-Man’s uncle can’t escape the same fate as in Marvel?
Arkham Hospital / Asylum was established in 1974
This detail has been mentioned in the Snyder Cut, and it is directly related to the DC universe. Arkham Hospital, or Arkham Asylum, first appeared in Batman # 258 – a 100-page booklet published in October 1974 by Dennis O’Neil and artist Irv Novick.
Ace chemical plant
In the scene where Bruce, Barry, and Diana look towards the Bat-signal lights in the sky, the audience gets a glimpse of the Ace chemical factory in the background. This is where the Joker turned his psychiatrist, Harleen Quinzel, into Harley Quinn. Then, it was she who blew up this place in Birds of Prey, the film released in early 2020. That detail may partly explain the Justice League timeline in the DCEU.
Zack Snyder also appears in Justice League
This information was shared by Snyder on Vero before his Cut came out, but the audience may still have to be very focused to recognize this director in Justice League. A little suggestion is that he appeared very early, right in the first few minutes of the movie, he was present to drink coffee and watch the street.
Wonder Woman’s first scene in Justice League Snyder Cut was when she stood on the arm of a giant statue and watched below, before plunging down to crush the plot of a suicide bomb. This statue is the goddess Themis in ancient Greek mythology, described as a “justice lawyer”, representing natural order, superior law. Themis even appeared before Zeus – Diana’s father according to the plot that the DCEU built.
Gorilla Grodd, Flash fan favorite
During his meeting with Bruce Wayne at his residence, Barry blurted out that he had many talents, including gorilla sign language. DC comic fans may immediately refer to Gorilla Grodd, one of the oldest, and most beloved, contenders in the Flash series. It is not known that this character will appear in the movie for the super-fast guy, which is expected to be released in 2022.
The anti-life equation
Compared to the 2017 release, one of the biggest differences Zack Snyder brings is the appearance of Darkseid and the equation of rebellion – which made him decide to go to Earth again. You can learn more about this here.
Any Batman still likes to step on the statue’s head
One of the most famous details related to Batman is the image of him coldly reigning over the gargoyles, quietly observing Gotham below. This image first appeared in Detective Comics # 682, and was included in the film by Zack Snyder in an extremely “nicer” way (it actually appeared in theaters in 2017 – but still is a shot taken by Snyder).
“The S but not the S” on Superman’s chest
Justice League Snyder Cut not only gave Martha Kent and Lois Lane more land, but also changed part of the script. First, it was the push needed for Lane to “return to real life” after Superman’s death. Second, this is also how Snyder introduced Martian Manhunter and his famous transformation ability in the DCEU. However, there is one detail that fans may have missed, is when Martha (fake) said she still saw “that S” everywhere – a small mistake that Lois Lane made when she was new. get to know Superman in Man of Steel.
