Batman Vs. Superman Script Was A Hoax


After Kevin Smith recently stated he wasn't behind the reported fake Batman Vs. Superman script, a Twitter user is now claiming to have written it, and saying it's all been a hoax.

Note: Cosmic Book News never reported any of the rumors from the fake script.

Websites were sent the fake Batman Vs. Superman script (read it here), with the script containing many errors as well as just sounding not right.

The rumors were said to include more than half dozen new good and bad guys - that's in addition to Lex Luthor, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg and any other Justice League characters.

Following Kevin Smith stating he had nothing to do with the fake script, Twitter user "Arrogant Alien" posted a series of tweets taking credit, seemingly proving he/she is the culprit behind the ruse.


"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has a newly announced May 6, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter and Tao Okamoto in new character roles for the film. Justice League is to follow directed by Zack Snyder as well.
