  • And in a believe it or not cameo, in the final moments of the film, George Clooney pulls off the mother of all cameo surprises as Bruce Wayne - by saving his father, the Flash changed the timeline for The Btaman.
  • CGI versions of Christopher Reeve, George Reeves, Helen Slater, the original Flash from the Comics and the Adam West Batman all make appearances in the multiverse as each verse begins to collapse.
