Marvel’s not the only one planting Easter eggs in superhero movies.
“His name is a throwaway. He’s on a cell,” Goyer says. “You don’t actually see him, just his name on a cell. It’s a real Easter Egg. That’s one cross-pollination we would stay away from [doing more with].”
The film, which has been referred to as Super Max, Supermax and, simply, Green Arrow, takes place in a penitentiary for supervillains in the DC Universe. That means on opportunity for Goyer to use a variety of DC bad guys. Also: Amanda Waller.
