The DCEU is filled with amazing characters--dark villains and complex heroes. With the drama and grit, though, it can be easy to overlook all of the incredible foreshadowing in the story.

The DCEU is actually filled to the brim with hints and easter eggs..

The truth is that the DCEU has not always been in a great place since Man of Steel, delivering mostly box office duds when compared to cinematic competitors, the MCU. Despite all the challenges early on, with joyless and gray adaptations that miss the mark, the DC universe has been slowly finding its footing and zeroing in on the balance that needs to be struck between gritty storytelling and having fun with these colorful personalities. Of course, a big part of this has been all of the amazing foreshadowing.

There are always story hints hiding in the shadows. Check out these 13 clever examples of foreshadowing in the DC Extended Universe.
