** This also neatly sets things up for any future confrontation with Darkseid, putting in a clear visual indicator that Superman usually holds back which will lend even more weight to however the WorldOfCardboardSpeech ends up appearing in the films.

* Look closely at how Superman fights Steppenwulf -- he never follows through on a punch. His fist moves just enough to impact the other guy, then stops. So he's easily, hilariously outclassing Steppenwulf ''while pulling his punches''. One wonders [[ChunkySalsaRule what would have happened]] if Clark hadn't been holding back.

Added DiffLines:

* For years, how the king of Man hid the Mother Box entrusted to him is considered the butt of jokes, considering that it is only barely buried a few feet underground while the other two were kept in guarded vaults. But when you consider how [[{{Irony}} the boxes that were more guarded were the ones that were taken first]], the king's decision to just bury it in the middle of nowhere was actually a stroke of (unintentional) genius as it made the box ''harder to find'' in general. Even after it was dug up, it constantly changed hands in secret throughout history. Meanwhile to someone like Steppenwolf, the guarded vaults might as well be a cardboard fort and a giant neon sign pointing to where the boxes are.

Added DiffLines:

** There’s also the fact that her new teammates have a lot in common with her old teammates, who (other than Steve) she knew into their old age, so these new friends remind her of the earliest versions of her old friends.
*** Chief was a member of an oppressed people who used his exceptional skills to exceed in life. Victor Stone is a black man with a genius IQ who got a football scholarship to college.
*** Charlie was a hard-drinking BoisterousBruiser like Arthur Curry, but underneath the bravado, he was struggling with a traumatic past and crippling anxiety like Barry Allen.
*** Sammy was an {{Omniglot}} who effortlessly assumed undercover personas. Bruce Wayne speaks many languages and blends in at an underground fight club run by the Russian mob as easily as a Metropolis gala.
*** Steve Trevor was an all-American NiceGuy, who despite knowing how [[HumansAreFlawed flawed humans are]] never lost faith that saving them is the right thing to do, leading to his HeroicSacrifice, just like Clark. Also, Steve was an AcePilot and Superman has the power of flight.
*** Etta was a proper English assistant who ran missions from headquarters but was perfectly capable of being in the fight, and did as she was told while being a ServileSnarker, just like Alfred.

Added DiffLines:

** How does Wonder Woman solve the bomb situation on her own? By literally smashing the glass ceiling.

** Also, while the Amazons in the passage leading to the dome avoiding being killed by Steppenwolf and his parademons, they have no escape and were doomed to die of dehydration and starvation.


* When we see Lex in the post-credit scene, he's surrounded by attractive women. Their poise suggests that they're bodyguards, but they don't appear to be armed and are just as likely their to serve equally as eye candy. Though they might have signed up willingly and are being paid well to keep Lex company, keep in mind that as ''Batman V Superman'' demonstrates, he has connections to the Russian mob, who in turn have connections to [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil sex traffickers.]]

Added DiffLines:

** It may not be for use in court, so much as to help the cops narrow down the who's who of crime groups. So they'd know that that particular group worked for, say, Sionis, and could easily start tracking patterns and methodologies


* In the mid-credits scene from ''Film/SuicideSquad'', Bruce Wayne receives personal information on Arthur and Barry from Amanda Waller, but not Victor. In keeping with continuity, Bruce manages to track down the first two, but the latter had to come to him.

* Clark's remark about coming back to life being itchy actually makes a degree of sense - wounds tend to itch when healing and if the Mother Box jump-started healing across his whole body...

** Especially the "saving the civilians" part. If Superman had been alone against Steppenwolf, he would have had to keep fighting him and the Parademons, and the civilians would have died (and the terraforming process would have been completed, [[IWinBecauseYouDont all Steppenwolf and the Parademons had to do was keep Superman away from the Mother Boxes long enough]]). His smash of Steppenwolf bought the League breathing room to continue the battle on more even terms, then the League kept him occupied while Flash and Superman saved the innocents in the area. Superman may be the most powerful being on the planet, but even he can only do one thing at a time.
