‘Justice League’ Trailer’s Clark Kent Scene Parallels ‘Superman: The Movie’

Superman Justice LeagueThe presumably final Justice League trailer dropped early Sunday morning and fans are still picking it apart to find as many Easter eggs as they can.

The trailer begins with Clark Kent in the fields surrounding his home, where he speaks to Lois Lane, asking her if she’ll marry him. The scene is more than likely a dream sequence of sorts, but it is quite a significant scene as it gives us our first look at Henry Cavill in the film’s marketing.

Fans were quick to point out that the scene in the trailer mimics a key scene from Superman: The Movie.

In both scenes, Clark is seen wearing a red plaid shirt, which is clearly an homage to the original Superman film. Regarding the scene itself, both scenes depict Clark returning home after a while. Clark’s female counterparts in the respective films then join him outside the house to have a conversation.

In Superman, Ma Kent comes to the conclusion that Clark needs to find himself. While it’s doubtful that Clark Kent will be going through an existential crisis in Justice League, it’ll be interesting to see which way they push his character. After all, we also don’t have full context regarding Clark and Lois’ conversation.

In Justice League, 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.

Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder with post-production duties handled by Joss Whedon. The film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons and Jesse Eisenberg.

Justice League hits theaters on November 11, 2017.

Henry Cavill Superman Man of SteelSuperman is a pop culture icon. The character was introduced to the masses in 1938. Eventually after radio shows, serials and animated adaptations, Superman became a movie icon following the release 1978’s Superman: The Movie. The seminal superhero film, directed by Richard Donner and starring Christopher Reeve, was followed by three sequels and one spin-off. In 2006, Bryan Singer brought Superman back to the silver screen with Superman Returns. The movie was divisive so it was back to the drawing board for Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Eventually, Zack Snyder was brought on board for the next iteration of Superman: Man of Steel.

Man of Steel was released in 2013 to decent reviews. The movie was a financial hit, but instead of doing a direct sequel, Warner Bros. went with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. That movie has come and gone and Justice League is on the horizon. Last year, it was also announced that a sequel to Man of Steel was coming along. There has been no word on that movie other than a few rumors here and there. This may be due to the situation that Superman was left in at the end of Batman v Superman, which will be resolved in Justice League.

There are many reasons why Man of Steel deserves a sequel. Here are a few reasons Warner Bros. needs to fast-track the project. Click Next to get started!
