Three More Easter Eggs Confirmed In ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’

For all of you eagle eyed fans out there who love their easter eggs, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice did not disappoint. Chalk full of Latin Watchmen references, Riddler question marks, and even some glass that was shaped like Ontario, it seems like we will never get through the full list of all the extra goodies hidden in the movie. And now, we can add even more confirmed eggs to the list.

Clay Enos, the photographer for Dawn of Justice and friend of Zack Snyder, took to Twitter to confirm not one, not two, but three more easter eggs hidden throughout the epic DC film.

The first egg can be seen on Anatoli Knyavez’s janitorial shirt. The name on the shirt and the logo are both actually names of the movie’s crew, which Enos confirmed were legally cleared for the film. Enos also notes these are “half easter eggs”.

Next up, Enos confirms that the canisters of Kryptonite that Batman arms himself with that read Pb, actually stands for Lead. For those of you who haven’t gotten to high school chemistry yet, Pb is the symbol for lead on the periodic table of elements. According to Enos, “nothing happens by accident in Zack’s movies”.

Lastly, the third easter egg is a reference to Cyborg. In the film, the Mother Box that created the hero had a government ID tag of 61982. Now, let’s ignore for a second the fact that June 19th is my birthday (I’m guessing that probably isn’t what Snyder was referring to), and focus on the fact that Cyborg appeared in Tales of New Teen Titans #1, which was released in June of 1982. Below is the confirmation from Enos.

Well, there you have it. Six months later and we’re still discovering new easter eggs from Dawn of Justice. Now the real question is – does the movie contain an easter egg that Snyder will continue hiding from fans, like James Gunn and his infamous final easter egg in Guardians of the Galaxy that nobody has found yet? Chances are, more will be discovered as time goes on.

Make sure to go back and rewatch Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on DVD and Blu-Ray, since it’s out and you can do that now! And make sure to comment below if you find any other cool little gems hiding throughout the movie.

Jack of some trades, master of some others. That saying never really made a lot of sense to me.

    Here’s a better Easter egg question, does the movie secretly contain a hidden competent movie?

    • Maximillian Pegasus

      Yes, on VOD, the Ultimate Edition.

        The UC was excellent. Just rewatched it the other day.

    • flavortang

      The problem largely was an incompetent audience that got frustrated like babies when every little detail wasn’t explained to them so they could understand. Gotta use them pea brains sometimes, folks.

        Yeah you know the mark of great filmmaking? When you have to release another version of the movie for home video release to fix the turd you dumped in theaters. You know what else is the mark of a well received movie? When the CEO of your parent company comes out and apologizes for their track record.

    Cyborg’s first appearance was in “DC Comics Presents” #26 (I think?) in 1980 when the rest of the New Teen Titans were introduced.

    “Tales of New Teen Titans” #1 was the first issue of a four-issue mini-series from two years later (after NTT became DC’s best selling book) that retold the origins (one per issue) of the four non-founding members of the Titans (Cyborg, Changeling, Starfire, and Raven).

    That’s not to say the Easter egg was unintentional, just that calling it Cyborg’s first appearance was wrong.

    • Thanks for the correction, Daniel! We’ve noted it in the article.

    • SAMURAI36

      61982 refers to the first time he appeared on a cover on his own, which was the book you mentioned.

  • SAMURAI36

    I loved the lead easter egg. Quite apropos.

    • Peter James

      It makes no sense.

      I’ve explained below why.

      • SAMURAI36

        And I rebutted, as to why it does.

  • Peter James

    Um…..

    The Lead cannisters make ZERO sense.

    Kryptonite radiation has been shown in all iterations of Superman (comics and movies) prior to this to have no harmful effect on human beings unlike what it does to Kryptonians.

    So why would Bruce Wayne need to encase them in Lead cannisters?
    The only person they would be protecting in that case would be Superman – and yet at that point he was creating them to destroy Superman.

    Unless the argument was that he did that to hide the Kryptonite from Superman’s X-ray vision (like LEx did with the bomb in the wheelchair at the Congress building), but, again…… at that point Superman had had no experience or exposure to Kryptonite, so it’s not exactly like he would know what it was when he saw it or if he saw it through regular metal.

    • SAMURAI36

      Ummm….

      If you recall during the fight, Batman used a lead canister spray a lead-lined mist to confuse Superman’s X-ray vision.

      Also, it could be argued that Batman didn’t know what Superman’s experience to Kryptonite was. OR, we can surmise from MOS, that the World Engine’s effects on Superman might have been recorded by Batman, or possibly even on the data drive that Batman retrieved from Lex.

      EDIT: Thus, I could see Batman not wanting to take the chance on the “surprise” effect that the K-grenades would have had on Superman.

      Also, we see Batman throwing out the same lead canisters, when he was trying to evade Doomsday during that part of the fight as well.

        You need to be on twitter with like minded folks. We’re working in a project that you’d like

        • SAMURAI36

          I’m on Twitter. What’s your name on there?

      • Axxell

        He found out Superman was weak to Kryptonite…He freaking found out he had x-ray vision and that he couldn’t see through it….

        But he couldn’t find out his mom’s name was Martha…

      Actually, Lex getting cancer and losing his hand (and eventually his whole body) from Kryptonite radiation was a major ongoing storyline in the post-Crisis Superman comics of the late 80’s and Early 90’s. The Lex seen in the Death of Superman storyline is a clone with Luthor’s brain that has taken the identity of Luthor’s son.

      Actually prolonged exposure will give a human cancer.
