* ConspicuousConsumption: In TheStinger, Lex Luthor serves himself some Goût de Diamants ("Taste of Diamonds" in French). It is the most expensive Champagne in the world, around ''$1.2 million for a single bottle'' - the alcohol itself doesn't contain diamonds of course, the bottle is encrusted with diamonds. [[Fiction500 Lex can afford it]], of course.

* ProductPlacement: The film had a deal with Mercedes-Benz to showcase their vehicles. Diana drives a prototype E-class convertible. Bruce Wayne drives a AMG Vision Gran Turismo, with automated gull wing doors, it was a concept designed purely for ''VideoGame/GranTurismo'' and the physical model shown at car shows was non-functional without even an interior, meaning they had to build the car from the ground up.

** On the footage Diana watches before being contacted by Cyborg, the latter looks nowhere near the [[https://i.stack.imgur.com/KHVhi.jpg critical condition]] shown in ''Batman v Superman'' (basically just half of his torso, his head and arm stumps remained). In the ''Justice League'' footage, the accident doesn't seem to have been that crippling, unless Silas did a ''really'' bad job at saving what was left of Victor's body afterwards...

* ThemeMusicPowerUp:
** Subverted when Superman is resurrected. As he stands in front of the League, you hear the first notes of John Williams' Superman theme ... but then the next few notes are in a minor key as the League realizes there is something wrong.
** Then played straight when Superman joins the fight against Steppenwulf. As he introduces himself, you hear the same slow, tentative intro as before, before it rises into triumphant French horn when he punches Steppenwulf and knocks him clear across the room.

* CutenessProximity: The movie opens with a video of Superman being 'interviewed' by children at the scene of his heroics -- as TheCape he has no problem playing along and is quite charmed by it all. The scene serves as a HappyTimesFlashback to when he was alive. At the end of the movie Wonder Woman is shown greeting a group of children who are also recording her -- she'd resisted stepping up as TheCape, but is now doing so.

* SeriesContinuityError: Cyborg states that the Mother Box his father possesses activated itself for the first time after the death of Superman. The trouble is that it was clearly activated to create Cyborg's cybernetic body ''before'' Superman's death in ''Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'' as shown in the stolen "metahumans" footage Diana watches before taking part to the battle against Doomsday.

* AdaptationalVillainy: The Mother Boxes, in the comics, are essentially doting computers who help out the New Gods. While Darkseid has enslaved several, they try to resist his will. In the film, they're described in purely malevolent terms, [[spoiler: though one resurrects Superman.]]

In the final battle [[spoiler: his intention was to punch through the enemy defenses with the Flying Fox and then divert all parademon attention on him in the batmobile to give the others an opening to reach the center tower to face Steppenwolf. Instead, the other League members follow his lead and protect him as they all make their way to the tower, and he is surprised it worked]].

Added DiffLines:

* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: Superman gets this treatment, going from being a polarising figure in life to being idealised in death. Possibly justifying this change in attitude was the revelation that Lex Luthor's attempts to defame Superman had become public knowledge, leaving only his heroic deeds to be remembered.
