No doubt there was a lot of pressure on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to perform up to its lofty forecast this opening weekend. Weather you thought it was a sunny day when you left the theater, or you felt storm clouds gathering over DC’s attempt to kick start their Justice League franchise because the movie was a natural disaster, we can all agree the tsunami of fans flocking to the theater has created a tidal wave at the box office.
Why all the meteorological puns? I feel inspired after watching this fun, very clever weather forecast from Sian Welby where she slyly included 20 Batman and Superman references into this minute long forecast, all to celebrate the big budget film’s release.
She has done this before, for both the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens…
…and the big Back to the Future Day celebration last October, in case you needed some more videos to watch repeatedly while screaming, “I can’t find all of them!”
Now this is where I will be honest with you even though some of you will make fun of me: after three viewings I am only confident that I found 14 of the Batman and Superman references. Some of them are pretty obvious, but some are merely subtle puns slipped in very quickly, and I got frustrated and gave up because that was the easy option.
It appears the comments are turned off on the video, so let’s crowd source this assignment and find all 20 together in our comments below.
