Every Single Easter Egg and Reference in Batman v Superman
Batman v Superman may not have done so hot with critics, but there was plenty of fan service in DC's latest entry, with Easter eggs and comic book references showing up left and right. Here's a video explaining all (or virtually all) of the allusions in the newly released introduction to the Justice League (and for those of you who haven't seen the film, spoiler alert!):



Possible spoilers ahead! (Click to reveal)


The video, from trusty Easter egg hunter Mr. Sunday Movies, starts with the obvious references that we've known since the first trailer came out: the many allusions to The Dark Knight Returns, the obvious references to the Joker, the graffiti-covered Robin suit that indicates a Death in the Family connection, etc. There's also the explicit introduction to the future of the DC universe, starting with Wonder Woman, of course, and extending to those little vignettes featuring The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg, which included hints at Darkseid's origin for the Justice League movie (and which, incidentally, would have made a perfect post-credits scene). 

But there were also some references that may have gone over many fans' heads. First, there were the superfluous DC cameos that were pretty ballsy on Snyder's part: well-known characters from the DC universe like Mercy Graves and Jimmy Olsen were brought in only to be promptly killed off (the latter before we even knew his name). But on a more positive note, there were also fun little references to classic films like Terminator and Star Wars, because why not.
