Following this summer’s announcement that we’ll be seeing Batman and Superman on the big screen together in 2015, many fans went back and pointed to the “Wayne Enterprises” satellite that can be seen briefly during Man of Steel as an indicator of the franchise’s future. That wasn’t the only Easter egg in the film though and in a new video (via CBM), star Henry Cavill says which of them is his favorite and how he’d like to see it play out in the future.
“On the extras on the Blu-ray, we’re going to get the opportunity to see Zack’s references to other aspects of the DC Universe. There’s one obvious one which is now particularly obvious because of our next installment, which is involving Batman as well. We see Bruce Wayne Enterprises on the satellite in space. We also see some references to LexCorp. I actually have no further knowledge of this next story, but there’s a good chance Lex is going to be introduced soon or at some stage. What really intrigued me was Dr. Emil Hamilton’s connection to S.T.A.R. Labs. Cyborg I think would make a wonderful character and an incredible bridge between both superhumans and humanity in a different way to Batman. So I don’t know where he’s going to come in or if he’s going to come in, but that’s one I’m particularly excited about. Other references I’m not too sure on, but we’ll see where those lead. Those with keen eyes will see them.”
Cavill will reprise his role of Clark Kent/Superman in the upcoming Man of Steel follow-up where he will face off against Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Also starring Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne, the Zack Snyder directed Batman vs. Superman hits theaters on July 17, 2015.
