Deathstroke’s a big Halo fan in the Justice League Snyder Cut

Why else would he be sporting that emblem?

The Justice League Snyder Cut has done the rounds ahead of its official release later this week, and eagle-eyed users have noticed that villain Deathstroke has a Halo emblem emblazoned upon one of his swords.

Twitter’s Geoff Reeves was the first to notice the emblem, a slight variation of an image that you can still use inside Halo to this day.

Christopher Barrett, a Halo artist who remains at developer Bungie, took to Twitter after the discovery in amusement.

“An emblem I made twenty years ago is on Deathstroke’s sword I guess?,” he tweeted.

It’s believed that the emblem was included in the film as it was repurposed (and very slightly amended) by a fan for a Fandom wiki page about Ra’s al Ghul’s League of Shadows. A comment on that same page now reads, “I can’t believe this was accidentally made canon holy shit.”

The Justice League Snyder Cut is a recut of the 2017 DC film, completely handled by director Zack Snyder, and will be available from 18 March. We’ve detailed how Australians can watch it right here.
