The movie stars four Oscar winners: Ben Affleck (Best Screenplay for Good Will Hunting (1997) and Best Picture for Argo (2012)), Jeremy Irons (Best Actor for Reversal of Fortune (1990)), Holly Hunter (Best Actress for The Piano (1993)) and Kevin Costner (Best Picture and Best Director for Dances with Wolves (1990)).


Despite the previous cinematic incarnations made by Gene Hackman and Kevin Spacey, where Lex Luthor was shown as a criminal mastermind wanted for justice, Luthor is now represented as head of a complex corporate named Lex Corp. This is not a contradiction with the own character, since then in the Superman's comic reboot after the limited series "Crisis on Infinite Earths", published in 1985, Lex Luthor is depicted as a powerful and wealthy businessman of his own company Lexcorp, who after the appearing of Superman he turns obsessed with defeating him.


The glass house posing as Wayne's {Ben Affleck} place, is the same glass house where Elektra {Jennifer Garner} stays while casing her mark in her own movie.


In the film, Lex Luthor quotes the opening paragraph of Vladimir Nabakov's novel, Lolita. Jeremy Irons, who portrays Alfred in the film also starred as the main character in the 1997 adaption of the book.


During the Batman/Superman fight, in one of the walls in the foreground you can see spray painted "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" Which can be translated from Latin to "Who guards the guardians?" Or "Who watches the watchmen?" On top of being really relevant to that point of the movie, it also is a reference to Zack Snyder's Watchmen (2009) in which the line is often used in the background. Also in Justice league Unlimited (2001) in the episode "Divided we fall" Batman makes this question in Latin to Green Arrow to which he replies "We got it covered".


In the movie, scientist Silas Stone is shown creating Justice League member Cyborg. He is played by actor Joe Morton, who is also known for playing Miles Dyson in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), director at Cyberdyne who created neutral-net processors which led to the birth of Skynet and the creation of the T-800 Terminator cyborg.


According to Batman-News, the suit of armor is outfitted with Kryptonite and packing firepower beyond raw strength (in this case, "missiles"). The details are claimed to be secondhand from Ben Affleck's trainer on the film, Rehan Jalali. That implies these details be taken with a grain of salt, but there has been prior evidence that Snyder would be turning to Kryptonite to help even the playing field, despite keeping it absent from Man of Steel (2013) entirely.


Perry drops another Easter egg on us when Lois is asking him to get her an Ubercopter to go cheer for her man. He tells her to forget the helipad and to set it down on the roof, obviously making a reference to Richard Donner's 1978 Superman the movie, where Lois has some issues with a helicopter taking off from the helipad.


Bill Finger (developer) co-created Batman, originally named "the Bat-Man", and first appeared in Detective Comics #27 (May 1939).


Reunites Ben Affleck with Diane Lane after Hollywoodland (2006), although they meet only a few moments.


The device Silas Stone uses to rebuild his son Victor (aka Cyborg) is a mother box, that in the comics can teleport people through Boom Tubes and it comes from Apokolips, Darkseid's home planet.


Both Batsuits and the Batmobile appear as DLCs in Batman: Arkham Knight (2015). Christian Bale's Batsuit and Batmobile appear as well.


The glasses Henry Cavill wears as Clark Kent are made by British spectacle designer Tom Davies. Apparently, the costume designer found most glasses sat too high on Henry Cavill's face because he has a high bridge. They sought out Tom Davies, who makes bespoke glasses, to design a one-off pair of spectacles for the job.


During the opening battle in Metropolis a grey horse is seen passing Bruce Wayne in the rubble. In the graphic novel "The Dark Knight Returns" Batman is seen riding a grey horse.


Jesse Eisenberg would walk to the sets in disguise so his Lex Luthor look would not leak.
