The figure looks like Darkseid and is hinting that he is coming in the future like lex said at the end of the movie
While Bruce is talking to Clark during Lex Luthor's party, Bruce says that Gotham already has enough trouble with villains that like to dress up as clowns. This is a reference to The Joker.
Perry White says, "It's not 1938 anymore," while talking to Clark Kent about people not reading newspapers anymore. Superman was created in 1938.

Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver Queen/Green Arrow in the TV series Arrow (2012), expressed interest in being in the film.
During the battle between Batman and Superman, Batman utilizes different weapons in his fight against Superman. Some of these weapons have similarities to weapons from The Dark Knight Returns. The sonic amplifier weapons that deploy when Superman steps on a panel in the ground have similarities to Batman's sonic rifle from the graphic novel. The Kryptonite grenades that Batman fires from his grenade launcher are similar to the Kryptonite arrow that Green Arrow uses against Superman in the book. The two both explode and emit Kryptonite Gas from their cases.
According to one of the producers, Charles Roven, Ben Affleck was their first choice and the first person they went to for the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman.

The ending of the movie is a reversal of the ending of 'The Dark Knight Returns', the comic by which many elements of this film were inspired. In that comic, Batman seemingly dies after the climactic battle only to be revealed as alive, with Clark Kent at the gravesite. Here, Superman dies after the final battle, only to be revealed as alive, with Bruce Wayne at the gravesite.

When discussing the film, Henry Cavill said that it would address a major issue that fans and critics had with Man of Steel (2013), involving the huge amount of collateral damage caused in the film's climax during Superman's battle with General Zod in Metropolis. Cavill said that future battle scenes in movies featuring Superman would involve him making sure to not harm civilians himself and to protect them from evil villains.
Though unseen, the Joker is eluded to several times in the movie. Examples include: Batman's line, "I've fought many clowns in my time" and in the building at the Gotham port where Batman and Superman conclude their fight, two pillars have the words "Joe" and "Ker" on them with an arrow pointing toward the centre of the room.
