Contains spoilers for Zack Snyder's Justice League

With Zack Snyder's Justice League seemingly being the director's last foray into the DC Extended Universe (for now), it's completely understandable why he crammed Easter eggs and references to the wider continuity into the recently released movie. The Knightmare sequences in particular teased his grand plan for future Justice League movies as the heroes would persevere to save the world even after it had been turned into an apocalyptic hellscape by Darkseid.

The four-hour cut of the film was much more coherent in the way Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince assembled their team, but after Steppenwolf had been defeated, it was clear they weren't going to stop there. Batman sure loves his preparation time, doesn't he? Well, his next step in keeping the planet safe is remodeling Wayne Manor into the Justice League headquarters, so the next wave of heroes will have a base to work from.

We even saw a version of the iconic DC Comics location in an earlier scene, when Cyborg foresaw its destruction during his interaction with the Kryptonian ship in Metropolis. And thanks to the ending of the film, it seems like Bruce isn't wasting any time in getting started on the renovations.

Extreme makeover: DC edition

The ending of Zack Snyder's Justice League obviously sees Bruce talking with Martian Manhunter about the coming battle, but the other hero's arrival isn't the Easter egg we're talking about here. When J'onn J'onzz ascends into the sky in typical heroic fashion, cape billowing behind him, Snyder manages to squeeze one last Easter egg into his exit from the DC universe. Just before the film cuts to black for the credits, there's a wider shot of Martian Manhunter in the sky against the backdrop of Bruce's land. And further in the distance it's clear that Wayne Manor is under construction, clearly the renovations have already begun on turning it into the Hall of Justice.

For those that didn't spot the reference on their first watch, Zack Snyder revealed the Easter egg when speaking to the folks of the ReelBlend podcast, explaining that it looks a lot better in IMAX. "If you look at Wayne Manor, it's still under construction," he said. "They're basically turning it into Justice League headquarters. In IMAX, you can really see it."

During the podcast, Snyder also confirmed that the main Knightmare sequence takes place five years after the events of Justice League, so at least Batman has a few years to make the Hall of Justice look all grand before Darkseid and Superman tear it down brick by brick. Unsurprisingly, DCEU fans are keen to see more from Snyder's story, but Warner Bros. is staying quiet on any potential for a Justice League 2 at the moment.
