Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has a wicked reference to Star Wars: A New Hope

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has a very cool Easter Egg reference to Star Wars: A New Hope

If you recall at the end of the movie that Lex Luther is imprisoned and wearing a prisoner's uniform.

Luthors' prison number is printed on it and it reads ’16-TK421’. This number is the same as the Stormtrooper that was asked why he wasn’t at his post in A New Hope. The trooper had been suckered into entering the Millennium Falcon and was attacked by Han et al. 

It’s quite a cool little easter egg!

During the production of B v S and The Force Awakens there was a bit of rivalry going on between the two production teams. At one point, a miniature version of the Bat Mobile from Nolan’s Batman Universe was placed on the under carriage of the Falcon so it's no surprise director Zack Synder snuck this reference into the movie.

We wonder if that Luther's uniform itself is a reference to the one worn by Gene Hackman and Ned Beatty in the Christopher Reeve Superman films. 

Here's a list of other Star Wars easter eggs that have made it into other films and television.

The most glorious golden rod himself, C3PO quotes from The Force Awakens

C3PO's The Force Awakens Quotes

While BB-8 may have been the robot that stole the show during The Force Awakens, C3PO hung in there with some funny one liners, red arm and all.

Here's the few funny quotes he managed to utter.

To Han Solo as he meets him for the first time in a while at Maz's now destroyed Castle:

"Goodness! Han Solo! It is I, C-3PO! You probably do not recognize me because of the red arm..."

C3PO then shows a complete lack of emotional intelligence getting in between Han and Leia having not seen each other for what would appear to be an age:

"General Solo, it is such an honor to see you again."

C-3PO corrects himself in front of General Leia:

"Princess — General, Sorry."

To the long powered down R2-D2:

"Oh dear friend, you don't know how happy I am to see you."

Here's some more classic quotes that C-3PO has made in the other Star Wars films.

The Polish version of a Return of the Jedi promo poster is KRAZY good

Here's a Polish render of a promotional poster for Return of the Jedi as found at the Star Wars Tumblr. It's a bit off beat but still brings a sense of wonder as do most of the Star Wars posters. Check Vader's eye actually being the Death Star and what's that Krazy green goblin king doing? Cut scene from Jedi ;)
