‘Man of Steel’: Watchmen Easter Egg Spotted With Henry Cavill’s Superman

Watchmen Man of Steel Superman Henry CavillEven though Man of Steel was released six years ago it appears fans keep spotting easter eggs in the film, in this case one involving Watchmen and Henry Cavill’s Superman.

Man of Steel soared into theaters in 2013 and was directed by Zack Snyder who also helmed the Watchmen film adaptation in 2009. What some thought could never be adapted into film, Zack Snyder took on that challenge and some fans have declared the Ultimate Cut of the film as a great adaptation of the incredible graphic novel. Zack Snyder seemed to care about the source material and he carried that with him for Man of Steel. Recently, a Reddit user shared a shot of a scene during Henry Cavill’s Superman debut that references Watchmen. You can view the post below.

As you can see during the battle at Metropolis as Zod and Superman begin to battle there is a scene in which Zod pushes a LexCorp fuel tanker towards Superman and right at the moment he flies over the fuel tanker to avoid it there is some graffiti art referencing the famous yellow smile pin with a blood stain from Watchmen. Zack Snyder is a director that seems to be well involved in his projects and hold much importance to referencing some of his previous work.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
