How about that teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?! If you’re like me, you’ve probably lost count as to how many times you’ve watched it since it was officially released last night. Fans have quickly pointed out the obvious Easter eggs, such as the Riddler’s question mark logo graffitied to a pillar, or what appears to be the costume of a dead Robin behind the scene with Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne. But there’s one major Easter that you may have missed.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice cinematographer Larry Fong put a challenge out to fans on Twitter. “I don’t think anyone’s found the best easter egg yet,” he said. When people brought up the obvious Easter eggs that I just mentioned, Fong replied “Nope. Not graffiti. Not a suit.”.
So I put the word out on Twitter, and almost immediately a clever Batman News reader spotted the Easter egg that can be seen in the photo above.

Superman can be seen holding what appears to be a rocketship, with 003 on it. Or, 300 backwards. The movie 300 was Zack Snyder’s first blockbuster hit. It helped pave the way for him to be the face of huge comic book movies like Watchmen, Man of Steel, and now Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
