Zack Snyder's Justice League contains an "unintentional" reference to Halo

It seems that Zack Snyder's Justice League contains a small accidental reference to Halo. One of the characters present in the work, Deathstroke, in fact, it has an emblem similar to what was seen in the famous FPS saga Microsoft products on his costume, in what appears to be a veritable jumble of images taken by Google. It all started with the first promotional images of the costume of Slade “Deathstroke” Wilson. The original poster featured an emblem on Wilson's sword which appeared to be a reference to Ra's Al Ghul, a recurring villain of Batman. Joe Manganiello, who plays Wilson in Justice League, confirmed that this was an Easter Egg. The problem is that, apparently, that wouldn't be a symbol of League of Assassins, but a modified version of the Runes multiplayer emblem from the Halo series.

How did it happen? Well, if in Google Images you search for "Symbol of Ra's Al Ghul“, Custom runes are the first result. A reverse image search on that image brings back to Comics Crossroads, a fan-fiction database that hasn't been updated since 2017. The author used a photoshop-cut rune for his version of the League of Assassins and used some specifics. keywords to get a decent searchability on Google. It seems that whoever drew this part of Deathstroke's costume may have used one of the first images they found. This has gradually attracted more and more attention on Twitter. Christopher Barrett, former art director of Halo games and currently art director of Destiny, commented on this on his Twitter account:

An emblem I made twenty years ago is on Deathstroke's sword I guess?
