January 14, 2022

The ongoing production of HBO Max’s Batgirl has teased yet another reference to the DCEU, further establishing its evident connection to the ongoing lore of the DC’s shared cinematic continuity. A photo taken on the film’s set suggests that Lex Luthor, the arch-nemesis of Superman and former head of Lex Corp., is still in prison. It’s an image of a magazine cover that claims to account for an exclusive interview from Luthor and his efforts to appeal his sentencing, thus, establishing that the conglomerate-turned-maniac is still fighting his case. The image not only references Zack Snyder’s initial films that formed DC Extended Universe but also puts Batgirl in an intricate position within the DCEU timeline.
