(Warning: the following could theoretically contain SPOILERS for future episodes of DC and the CW's brand spanking new Legends of Tomorrow - but most likely only in the form of background Easter Eggs. Proceed with whatever level of caution that suggests is prudent...)

Now, with Legends of Tomorrow now mere hours from hitting our screens (or, depending on when you're reading this, already here), we can finally allow ourselves to get completely and utterly over-excited about the prospect of its arrival, without fear of the wait completely destroying our reserves of patience.

What's more, the show's imminent start has, it seems, directly contributed to a glistening flood of awesome behind-the-scenes looks at the show. The latest to hit the Interweb?

This Official On-Set Photo is FULL Of Easter Eggs

That's right - it seems that the Waverider is set to be pretty much full to bursting with subtle DC references.

My personal favorites?

What Looks an Awful Lot Like Orion's Helmet

It's not quite the design we know and love, but the posture of whoever is donning that silver headgear on the right of the image sure does suggest Orion's Astro-Harness. Could we be set to see The New Gods at some point?

An Alternate Pied Piper's Flute

It's a lot less advanced than the version we saw the villain utilize in The Flash, of course - but that's hardly an issue for the Waverider...

What May Well Be Sgt. Rock's Helmet

Caity Lotz might just be wearing the iconic helmet traditionally worn by DC's Sgt. Rock - but could we eventually see the war-time hero, too?

A Possible Green Lantern Lantern

Up on the shelf on the top left, there's what might just possibly be a variation on Alan Scott's old Green Lantern lantern. A tease of future interactions with the Corps, perhaps?

And... a Whole Bunch More

There are, after all, at least a couple more hiding in there (take a closer look at that helmet and think 'red', for instance, and perhaps ponder that candle for a while).

The big question now, then?
