This prop found on the Batgirl set raises the likelihood that Luthor is as yet in prison during the occasions of the impending DCEU film. Assuming that is the case, it would viably retcon Justice League’s completion, which saw him escape. Another explanation for the magazine cover, which is by all accounts the more plausible one, is that Batgirl or parts of the film are set before Justice League’s consummation. Some have also highlighted the headline “Luther Hires New Lawyer” as a potential reference to one of Gotham’s most famous attorneys, Harvey Dent.
