A new behind-the-scenes image from Justice League director Zack Snyder may not offer up exactly what you’ve wanted to see (ie another look at the superhero team-up film teased in the trailer way back in July), but it does include some pretty interesting clues buried within it. On the surface, Snyder is clearly having a little fun by dressing up (partially) in Ben Affleck‘s Batman costume while working on the DCEU films. This is just the latest attempt to show the lighter side of production which has often produced dark and brooding material on-screen.
But if you look a little closer, the playful Snyder has also revealed some other tidbits about the interconnected DCEU. The first is that the scene he’s currently working on suggests that a recently revealed villain for the Batman standalone film might just be receiving a cameo in the Justice League movie after all. The second is a curious quote that might have more to do with Snyder’s creative side than anything tied into the DC Comics and Warner Bros. pictures, but it’s an interesting inclusion nonetheless.
Here’s a look at the full picture from Snyder. As you can see, he’s having a bit of fun while also staying hard at work. Who says you can’t wear Batman’s armored gauntlet while working on the movie?
