Every Easter Egg You Might Have Missed in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Plus, a Message from Gal Gadot!)
Spoilers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
A lot of the Easter Eggs in Dawn of Justice were pretty hard to miss, but, as this Mr. Sunday Movies video proves, DoJ actually had a few moments of subtlety amidst all the sturm und drang—for instance, I did not catch the Star Wars reference at the end of the film. The more you know!
The video also addresses Mr. Sunday Movies’ “Batman Movie Kill Count Supercut,” which might have been the YouTube video Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder mentioned in a recent interview as one of the inspirations behind Batman’s cavalier attitude towards pubic safety in this film.
In other Dawn of Justice news, Gal Gadot and Henry Cavill have both taken to social media to thank fans for turning out to see the film. More than any other movie in recent memory, the conversation surrounding Dawn of Justice has presented fans and critics as two very separate and distinct entities, with some people going so far as to claim Disney bribed critics to give the movie unfavorable reviews. That narrative bothers me because it implies that being a fan and a critic is mutually exclusive, which A. carries the insulting implication that fans have no critical faculties, and B. ignores the fact that, in this day and age of mainstream geek media, there are plenty of critics who are also comic book fans.
Cavill and Gadot’s messages below remind me of that false dichotomy, but not because of anything specific to their thank-you notes, which I think are awesome. This is one of the very few movies where, because popular discussion of the film has presented critics and fans as opposing voices, I hear “and not the critics!” when someone thanks their fans. In reality, though, lots of critics wanted to be fans of Dawn of Justice! Lots of fans were also critical of it!
Anyway, I’ll dismount my soapbox. Here’s Gal Gadot and Henry Cavill being very gracious and getting us hype for what’s to come:
