As a results, along with introducing Batman, Wonder Woman and Lex Luthor, it was full with loads of easter eggs and hints at what to come, ranging from the subtle (Robin’s suit in the Batcave, pointing towards an Under the Hood adaptation) to the painfully obvious (Diana Prince opening up Quicktime files of the metahumans).

    • Fatal warehouse fire in Oakland (17 photos)

      Up to 40 people were feared dead in a huge fire that tore through a rave party held in a warehouse near San Francisco, authorities said, warning that the initial death toll of nine would likely rise once crews swept the stricken building. Oakland Fire Chief Teresa Deloach Reed said most of those who perished in the blaze that started about 11:30 pm (0730 GMT) Friday were thought to have died on the upper floor of the two-story warehouse known as Oakland Ghostship. “It must have been a very fast-moving fire,” she told reporters. It was not immediately known what sparked the inferno at the electronic dance music party attended by an estimated 50 to 100 people. By mid-day Saturday, fire crews had not yet been able to fully sweep the scene and officials braced for more casualties once rescuers entered the building.
