Zack Snyder Tweets ‘Justice League’ Set Photo Filled With Easter Eggs, so Grab Your Magnifying Glass and Speculating Hat

This week, it was revealed that Justice League will begin filming on April 11, 2016, which is a big, huge, crazy deal for two reasons. First of all, it’s a major step forward for the DC movie universe and will represent the first time this iconic superhero team has appeared in live action on the big screen. But more importantly, it represents Warner Bros.’ commitment to their plan and their faith in director Zack Snyder. Since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens a little over two weeks before cameras roll on Justice League, they’re doubling down on him being the chief architect of their new movie universe. No matter what happens, it’s all steam ahead at this point.
To drive this point home, Snyder tweeted a picture from straight from the film’s set. Or rather, straight from Warner Bros. studios in Leavesden, England, where a whole bunch of technicians and artists are deep in pre-production . Although the chief subjects of the photo are the director and Jason Momoa, a.k.a. Aquaman, the real objects of interest are linger in the background.
Look past Momoa, whose enthusiasm for playing Aquaman has never been less than apparent. And look past Snyder, who looks about as tired and frail as you’d expect for guy who is finishing one gigantic superhero movie and immediately leaping on to another. Seriously. Is he okay? Can someone please check on him?
Look to the far left side of the frame and take a fuzzy first look at the costume Ezra Miller will wear as The Flash in Justice League. Yes, Snyder knew exactly what he was doing when he shared this image.

It’s hard to be critical from this distance, but we can all safely agree that it looks like the Flash, right? It really is a hard costume to screw up. Then again, this is the same DC universe where Superman doesn’t have his iconic underwear.
There are other costumes in the shot but they aren’t quite as clear. Working our way from left to right from the Flash costume, there’s one outfit that some have already suspected may be a new version of Nightwing (but take that with as much salt as you can possible gather because who the hell knows?), a black costume that looks like it could be one green paint job away from being strapped on Green Lantern, a mostly obscured uniform that includes a scarf wrapped over the mouth, and, on the far right, something that looks like it could be the start of Cyborg’s bulky get-up. Eagle-eyed viewers will also note some concept art directly underneath the Flash, which could represent Wonder Woman or Meera, Aquaman’s right-hand lady.
With Justice League shooting in just a month and a half, we should start learning who will fill out the rest of these costumes soon enough. The epic team-up, which is just one of a two-film plan, is set to open on November 17, 2017.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
