‘Batman V Superman’ Lex Luthor Theme Easter Egg Confirmed

Lex Luthor Batman V Superman

More Easter eggs from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice are being found and confirmed as Junkie XL has finally spoken on one fan discovery. In February, even before the release of the film, DCEU facts had pointed out Lex Luthor’s theme music from the film sounded very similar to Superman’s.

The theory was that Lex Luthor, being the opposite of the Man of Steel in many ways, had music representative of that nature. His theme appeared to be a distorted and backward version of Superman’s theme from Man of Steel. Junkie XL has just recently found and retweeted the theory to confirm its accuracy.

Regardless of your opinion of the film, Zack Snyder and Co. have clearly put a lot of thought into various intricacies of the film. Lex Luthor’s theme is a really cool finding despite being something most would overlook. More and more Easter eggs, allusions, and symbols keep being found within the film providing grounds for plenty of rewatch-ability.

Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs.  And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and the Ultimate Edition are now on Blu-ray and DVD.
