Last week, the third trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice finally arrived, which revealed a slew of new footage, including our first look at the villainous Doomsday, the first meeting between Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and much more. The folks over at Comic Book Movie have revealed what they think is an intriguing Easter Egg, which offers a nod to the Star Wars universe. While it's difficult to see for sure, the site believes that there may be a TIE Fighter ship in one shot of the trailer.
You may recall that, while both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Star Wars: The Force Awakens were in production, directors Zack Snyder and J.J. Abrams engaged in a friendly Twitter war, of sorts. Zack Snyder revealed photos of Henry Cavill dressed up as a Sith warrior, while Stormtroopers were arrested for "stealing" the Batmobile. J.J. Abrams responded with a photo of his own, featuring C-3PO as The Dark Knight, while revealing that the Tumbler from Christopher Nolan's trilogy was part of the Millennium Falcon.
The new Easter Egg in question comes during Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's prologue, where a piece of rubble appears to resemble a TIE Fighter from the Star Wars franchise. Of course, we don't have any confirmation that this was put there on purpose by director Zack Snyder as a Star Wars Easter Egg, or if it's just a coincidence that this piece of debris looks like the iconic ship. But, if this was intentional, could this mean that there may be a Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Easter Egg in the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer?
While Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters in just a few weeks, on December 18, we still have several more months until Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016. It isn't known if another Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer will be released between now and then, but we'll surely be getting new clips and TV spots in the months that follow, so perhaps we should keep our eyes peeled for any more Star Wars Easter Eggs. We'll have to wait and see.
Take a look at the photo below, and let us know if you think this spec of debris resembles a TIE Fighter from Star Wars. Could this be part of Zack Snyder and J.J. Abrams' friendly Twitter war? Would you like to see something from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice pop up in Star Wars: The Force Awakens?
