Justice League featured a number of nods to the DC Comics universe and now a sharp-eyed fan has discovered a new easter egg that references a notable character with a connection to The Flash.
Justice League‘s final act features a scene where Barry Allen reveals that he has been given a job in Central City’s forensic crime lab, bringing his acceptance letter to prison to confirm the news to his wrongfully imprisoned father. Now, Reddit user “MurdockAtLaw” has noted that the letter was signed by a character named Gregory Wolfe, whom comic book fans may recognize as the warden of Iron Heights Prison who has dedicated himself to making the lives of his prisoners miserable, including antagonists who have been defeated by The Flash.

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.
Directed by Zack Snyder, 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, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League will be available on Digital HD February 13th and will be released on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, and DVD on March 13th.
10 DC Storylines We Want To See Adapted In The DC Extended Universe
The DC Extended Universe has drawn inspiration from plenty of iconic storylines from DC Comics. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice drew inspiration from both The Dark Knight Returns and Death of Superman, while Suicide Squad adapted the popular lineup from the New 52 launch and the stage is set for Flashpoint.
DC Comics is filled with great iconic storylines that could inspire a film slate for decades and still barely scratch the surface of the rich mythology. DC would be wise to not make a straight adaptation of any of these classic storylines, but draw inspiration from them. They can still remain true to the original intent of the work without being a straight adaptation. If you need proof take a look at how Captain America: Civil War pretty much only uses the broad concept of a superhero registration but creates essentially an original storyline that makes sense within that universe based off the comic. Or how Batman Begins draws elements from The Man Who Falls, Batman: Year One and Batman: The Long Halloween without making a page to page adaptation.
The storylines chosen are not just because of how great they were as original comics (which they were) but also the storytelling possibilities they open up. Basically how different they would be from other superhero projects or just ways they could grow the universe.
