I know the quasi similarity to the Justice League trailer line… but I came up with this scene like two years ago and I wasn’t going to let the fact that a movie where Lois Lane is wearing an engagement ring with a returned Superman in what appears to be a dream screw with my plans… Lyn wearing the ring around her neck needed to be addressed and I wasn’t going to rewrite the scene.
John thought it was like a week or so since he was reaped. Lyn thought it was like a day since they entered the portal. It’s been a year since John actually was reaped, it occurred on Halloween 2016– even though the date of the published comic was much later.
I had planned on adding in a time jump after the crew would return, but during the writing process I figured this solution out. It allows for more plotlines coming out of the end of the arc than just jumping forward to catch up with real time.
