DC's Batman v Superman may have featured brief glimpses of a whole lot of future #JusticeLeague members, but that hasn't dampened our collective enthusiasm for seeking out further, sneakier cameos in the movie. After all, the film was the #DCEU's first full dive into the world of the interconnected superhero movie universe, so the idea that there wouldn't be at least a handful of surreptitious nods and winks to the audience has always seemed a little implausible.
And, as it turns out, there really has been a cunningly hidden cameo hiding in plain sight this whole time — it just might not be quite what you're expecting. Y'see...
It Seems Zack Snyder Secretly Cameo-ed In 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'
Only, he didn't quite do it in the manner you might imagine. Where other directors might cunningly hide their silhouettes in the background, or turn up in a minor, scene-stealing role, #ZackSnyder instead opted for something a little more... subtle.
According to the film's cinematographer, Larry Fong, Snyder actually wound up playing #Batman in one key scene. Or, rather, playing Batman's hand:
Specifically, it seems that during #BruceWayne's visit to a certain underground fighting ring, it wasn't actually #BenAffleck who picked up his cell phone during a particular shot. Instead, it was Zack Snyder himself.
As it turns out, there was actually a very specific reason for the handy cameo. As Fong put it:
Which is... actually a pretty good explanation, to be honest.
That being said, it seems we're now going to have to pay a whole lot more attention to any unidentified hands, feet (and other appendages) that might appear in future #DCEU projects. After all, who knows who could be sneaking on to the big screen that way?
What do you reckon, though? Who - or what - would you have most liked to have seen cameo in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'? Let us know below!
