The new ‘Justice League’ film did not skimp on hiding Easter Eggs for eagle eyes fans. One, in particular, has some fans thinking it might be a subtle nod to DC Comic’s feline thief, Catwoman. A newly released photo is giving a close up look at the would-be Selina Kyle.
Near the end of ‘Justice League,’ during the final montage before the credits, we see a well-dressed woman wearing big sunglasses being led away by police at Wonder Woman’s museum. Then, Wonder Woman puts a cat statue into a box while a little girl with cat ears is also seen in the shot. All of the cat-themed references seemed to point to the lady in red being Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman. Sneaky!
Actor Russell Balogh made this theory even more interesting. Balogh is a stunt double for Ben Affleck on ‘Justice League,’ and shared a photo on his Instagram account that shows himself with the lady in red and another man. The caption read “Just before we were foiled by The Wonder,” followed by an emoji of a woman. He also hashtagged ‘Justice League,’ DC Comics, Wonder Woman, and Gal Gadot.
While this Easter Egg isn’t necessarily an introduction to the character, Catwoman has been a hot topic of speculation in the DC fandom this year. Fans speculated previously that Baby Driver actress Eiza Gonzalez was being considered to play Catwoman in the upcoming ‘Gotham City Sirens’ after DC Chief Geoff Johns followed her on Twitter. This speculation went wild when ‘Gotham City Sirens’ director David Ayer and DC Extended Universe actor Joe Manganiello followed suit.
What do you think? Was this a nod to our favorite cat burglar? Or just a case of fans seeing what they want to see? You be the judge! Go catch ‘Justice League,’ in theaters now!
