Did You See It? The ‘Justice League’ Trailer Featured a ‘Rick & Morty’ Easter Egg

     July 25, 2016


While it’s unclear which of the micro-universes holds the live-action DC films, but one thing is clear: Whichever one it is, it has Rick & Morty.

As pointed out by Vulture, one intrepid Twitter user examined the Justice League trailer shown during Warner Bros.’ Hall H panel at Comic-Con and discovered something interesting during Bruce Wayne’s recruitment of Barry Allen: One of the screens playing in the background when the lights first go on is an episode of the Adult Swim show.

So, as it would seem, Ezra Miller’s The Flash just got even more likable. Better still, Rick & Morty creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland responded to the find on Twitter. See the Easter egg and their reactions below:


The Justice League trailer already proved the film is such a departure in tone from what we’ve seen in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We saw the once brooding Dark Knight crack wise at Aquaman’s fish-literate abilities and making short, to-the-point, but comic one-liners, like, “So, you’re fast.” This reference, though, is a choice Easter egg.

Justice League, directed by Zack Snyder, is scheduled to hit theaters on June 14, 2019. For more of our Comic-Con coverage, check out these links below:
