Top 9 BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Easter Egg Wants

Batman v SupermanWith the highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film only ten days away from release, we here at Biff Bam Pop! thought it was high time to ask some of our most interested (and often affected) DC Universe enthusiasts what they might want to see as Easter Eggs in the film.

You know. Easter Eggs: those hidden gems of story or nods to characters, situations, etc., from the winding canon of comic book history that only the most hard-core of hard-core fans would ever recognize – and probably appreciate.

We know that the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film will be the hoped-for inciting point for everything that will come afterwards in the DC Cinematic Universe. Can the filmmakers make links to what comes next in an altogether intuitive, interesting and non-obtrusive way?

Here, then, are 9 Eater Eggs that three Biff Bam Pop writers want to see in the blockbuster film. Give them a read, and then tell us what yours might be, fan-boy and fan-girl!
