In the third act of Zack Snyder's Justice League, the director confirmed a fan theory that has been circulating online since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and introduced the DC Films origin for the team's Hall of Justice.

The Hall of Justice, which first appeared in the '70s animated series Super Friends and was later adopted into the comics on which Super Friends was based, will be constructed within the disused Wayne Manor in the movies.

In Batman v Superman, fans saw that Bruce Wayne was living in a smaller, more modern building on the grounds of Wayne Manor's property, with the Batcave entrance no longer in his house but rather through a pond.

The large building with a giant, open room seemed even then like an ideal setting for the Hall of Justice, and in Justice League, that was confirmed, with Batman, Wonder Woman, and Alfred planning to set up a room with a giant roundtable with room for the current teammates and more to be added later.

The Hall of Justice in the comics was a successor to the Justice League's satellite headquarters, constructed on Earth after the destruction of the satellite.

On The CW's "Arrowverse" shows, the Hall of Justice -- never called such -- appeared last year in the "Invasion!" crossover, where it served as a staging area for the superheroes' counterattack against the Dominators. On TV, the Hall of Justice was actually a disused STAR Labs facility.

(STAR Labs exists in the world of Justice League, too, and have control over the crashed Kryptonian scout ship in Metropolis.)

The status of a Justice League sequel remains up in the air after a disappointing opening weekend and persistent rumors of a reworking of DC's film universe, but when or if one comes, we know where the team will be spending their time.

Justice League is in theaters now.
