Right after I Am Legend came out, people were clamoring over the fake Batman vs. Superman billboard in the film’s apocalyptic future version of Times Square. Director Francis Lawrence, who was supposedly once attached to the project, threw that in there as a little easter egg for the fans. The image hit the ‘net, and fanboys everywhere hoped it was a reality.
Then, a few days later, reports started cropping up that fake posters for the Teen Titans and Green Lantern movies were hidden in the film as well. Though we didn’t have any confirmation, the rumors persisted. We just assumed we’d have to wait for the DVD to find out for sure.
Well, we were wrong. We at Filmonic got the exclusive on this one (go us!). When Will Smith’s character, Robert Neville, enters the video store for the first time, we get some fleeting glimpses of the posters.
Unfortunately, we don’t get a very clear view of them. The Titans poster is way in the background, and it’s too out of focus to really make anything out. As for the Lantern, we can only see the title clearly. Still, it’s a pretty cool little easter egg for us fans to notice.
Check them out! As per usual, click to enlarge!

Very cool stuff. Too bad the posters are a fake, because I’m sure some people would love to see these movies.
