The image of Ben Affleck’s Batman is from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, minutes before he’s set to launch his attack on Superman. If you take a look at the pillars on the left hand side, you can see that Zack Snyder has slyly put in the Rebel Alliance symbol where the Riddler’s question mark symbol would be. All in all, this is a pretty awesome tribute to one of the most historically and culturally relevant franchises to ever grace the silver screen and Snyder is all the more cooler for shouting them out.
