Comic books have inspired the marvelous golden age of comic book movies that we are now living in. Occasionally, things come full circle and the comic book movies will influence the comic books themselves. Well, now it looks as if Ben Affleck and his interpretation of Batman from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice have influenced Tom King’s current run in the comics.
Eagle-eyed Reddit user JoshTHS spotted a small but interesting detail in Batman issue #62. If you look closely, it appears that Batman is utilizing the Batarangs typically sported by the Ben Affleck Batman in both Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.
Take a look for yourself below:
So what do you think? Is this the same iconic Batarang from films such as Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice? Or do you think that there are enough differences between the two that this could be considered its own thing? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Directed by Zack Snyder, with post-production duties handled by Joss Whedon, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, and Julian Lewis Jones.
Justice League is available now on Digital HD, 4K, Blu-Ray, and DVD. Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
