Small Foreshadowing Details We Never Noticed About DCEU Villains

List RulesVote up the most brilliant foreshadowing.

DC Comics has had incredible success with their big screen adaptations, from Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy to the more contemporary "Synderverse," where leading characters like Aquaman and Wonder Woman are the stars of the show. It's not just the heroes that make these movies so popular, though. DC's villains drive the action-packed plotlines, and one of the things that makes them so sinister is the foreshadowing tucked away in their stories. You may not have noticed, for example, that the scar General Zod gets in Man of Steel ends up resurfacing on Doomsday in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. There is also foreshadowing in the background details, like when Ludendorff seems to grow a pair of "horns" while talking to Diana in Wonder Woman. Sometimes these little previews are even subtly placed in dialogue. When Bane describes his backstory to Batman in The Dark Knight Rises, he actually provides information that lets us know he's not the child that escaped the prison pit.

If you love discovering little clues on the big screen, check out this list of foreshadowing details from DC movies.

    In Batman v Superman (2016), Lex Luthor resents God for not saving him from his father's "fists and abominations." When Doomsday attempts to attack Lex, Superman prevents him, thus saving Lex from the fist of his abomination.

    Sir Patrick Recognizes Diana Right From The Start

    From Redditor /u/hairhair2015:

    In Wonder Woman (2017) when sir Patrick sees Diana in parliament he reacts strongly. You are meant to think that he is reacting this way because she is a woman in a place for men. He is really reacting like this because he recognizes that she is the Godkiller sent to destroy him (Ares).
