We knew Zack Snyder would be cramming a whole bunch of stuff into Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the finished product does not dissapoint when it comes to DC Comics easter eggs. Afraid you missed a few? No worries, we have you covered.

We dissected the precuror to Justice League and narrowed down a total of 34 comic easter eggs, homages and sly references that made the final cut. From scenes lifted straight off the comic panel, to major pieces of DC Comics history that slipped into a few of those blink-and-you'll-miss-it scenes, the film was cram-packed with goodies that should keep hardcore fans heading back to the theater at least a few more times to chronicle them all.

Breaking it all down in one run, it's positively astounding how much stuff Snyder managed to fit into this movie. It had Mother Boxes, STAR Labs, a very strong nod to the comic story Crisis on Infinite Earths, more than a few teases that Darkseid is definitely coming soon, and elements from almost a half dozen other major comic stories sprinkled in. Seriously, it's a lot.

Check out our exhaustive video breakdown below, then sound off on your favorite comic references from the film:
