Yesterday we rounded up the rumors about the “leaked script” for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice being a fake commissioned by Warner and leaked intentionally to throw people off any real spoilers. Weirder yet, the villain-filled, fanservice-heavy script was rumored to have been written by jorts-ensconced taint enthusiast Kevin Smith. We gave our own reasons for why that could be plausible, and no, I’m not proud that I know so much about Kevin Smith.
Now we have a follow-up. Smith tweeted last night that he’d comment about the rumor, but everyone would have to wait a day:
This is the Twitter equivalent of a teaser trailer about a teaser trailer. Damn you for making that normal, Hollywood.
Welp, it’s now 18 minutes after 11 am PST, so where’s that update? Right here, just a little late because weed’s a hell of a drug:
Anyway, the link goes to his blog, where he says none of the five scripts he’s written recently have been a fake Batman V Superman script.
C’mon, kids… No major studio would let a guy like me near their franchises – even if it was for a dummy script meant solely to fool the news sites. (Don’t know if it’s true or not, but this Twitter user is claiming credit for a fugazi script that’s currently being reviewed online.)
No, anything I’ve said about “Milo and Sage” was based on an image Zack showed me while hosting a MAN OF STEEL online event at Yahoo many months back. The little I know of the flick beyond that I learned from some cats involved (though never BatFleck himself; as I’ve said a few times now on the Babble-On podcast, beyond email, I haven’t spoken to Ben in years). Fun story, though.
So yeah. He made everyone wait a day to see him answer a yes or no question and promote his upcoming movie for free. FML.
