10 Justice League Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed

The Death Of Superman

Justice League‘s worst kept secret was the fact that Superman would be returning from the dead, following his sacrifice in stopping Doomsday in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. One of the big questions fans had about this was whether or not Henry Cavill would don the black and silver suit worn by Supes once he was resurrected in the comics. As it turns out, he doesn’t. But there is a reference to it in the movie all the same.

Justice League begins with the world at large mourning Superman’s loss, with the House of El symbol displayed on famous landmarks across the globe. For instance, a giant flag of the ‘S’ emblem is seen draped over Westminster Bridge in London in one scene. As they’re a sombre memorial, the banners are in black with a silver ‘S’, harking back to the black suit.

Speaking of Superman’s death, the beginning of the film attempts a weird tie-in to real-world events. We see a newspaper comparing Superman to late eccentric musicians David Bowie and Prince, with the headline asking whether they all went back to their home planet.
