Almost every comic book movie out there holds a few “Easter eggs,” those little hidden treasures that give a wink and a nod to the storied history of the comics, and DC movies are definitely no exception. You’d think that Easter eggs have only been a recent phenomenon, but they’ve actually been popping up since the earliest comic book films.
So we're taking a look back at everything from Superman to the most recent additions in the DCEU to unearth the 10 Best DC Movie Easter Eggs!
Check out our video at the top of the article to see what we picked, and leave a comment here if you wanna talk about any that we didn't list!
Slide 1/10 – 10. Superman
Slide 2/10 – 9. Justice League
Our next pick comes from the end credits scene in Justice League. Not only do we get our first look at Deathstroke, which is awesome on its own, but Lex Luthor asks: “Shouldn’t we have a league of our own?” which everyone who reads the comics knows will inevitably lead to either the Legion of Doom or the Injustice League.
Slide 3/10 – 8. Superman Returns
Slide 4/10 – 7. The Dark Knight Rises
Slide 5/10 – 6. Batman V. Superman
Slide 6/10 – 5. Man of Steel
No. 5 is Man of Steel. While there were several easter eggs in this movie that referenced Lex Luthor and Booster Gold, the best ones foreshadowed the arrival of Batman, such as when we see the Wayne Enterprises logo on this satellite, or during this fight when we see a poster on the wall that says “Keep Calm and Call Batman,” which is what Warner Bros does anytime a DC movie bombs.
