Zack Snyder just revealed that one of Justice League's deleted scenes contained a Watchmen Easter egg. Posting on the social media platform Vero, Snyder -- who directed part of the film before stepping down -- uploaded a photo from a cut scene that shows Ezra Miller's Barry Allen wearing a Watchmen-inspired t-shirt. The shirt boasts the logo for Tales of the Black Freighter, a magazine read by two minor Watchmen characters.
Tales of the Black Freighter never made it into the theatrical version of Watchmen, which was also directed by Snyder, but it was included in the Ultimate Cut of the movie that was later released. The director is known for lacing his comic book adaptations with Easter eggs for eagle-eyed viewers to discover, and this is just another to add onto the long list.
Available now on digital HD and on Blu-ray and DVD beginning March 13, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
