‘Man Of Steel’ Included Nods To Lex Luthor, Batman

If you’ve already seen Man of Steel, you have plenty of reasons to go back for another round with the “Last Kryptonian.” First and foremost are a number or clever easter eggs sprinkled throughout the movie, which included references to both Lex Luthor and Bruce Wayne (aka Batman).

Most of you probably noticed the “LexCorp” logo on the fuel tanker during Superman’s climactic final battle with General Zod. But there were tons of other little in-universe nods, both to Superman mythology and branching over into Batman territory.

Also during the final battle with General Zod, the two fight in space briefly and crash into a satellite… a satellite that has the Wayne Enterprises logo on it. Fanboys have been going crazy over this easter egg, and have wondered about its implications.

Does it mean that a Justice League movie is actually imminent? Does it mean that Zack Snyder’s Superman and Christopher Nolan’s Batman share the same universe after all?

In an interview with MTV News, Snyder revealed that he just threw stuff from the comic books into Man of Steel to hint at a larger DC Universe, but without explicitly suggesting any implications.

“There’s no conference I had with DC where they said, ‘is there any way we can get Lexcorp in there? Or Wayne Enterprises’,” Snyder said. “I’m just like, this is cool stuff — we need to put it in the movie. Because I feel like it shows that there’s a big DC Universe is out there.”
