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.
Well @ThatKevinSmith is going to talk about something tomorrow that I put together in less than a week and then went viral.— Arrogant Alien (@SonofArrogance) July 8, 2014
This has gone to far. I wrote a bs screenplay in 5 f**king days and now kids are insulting each other on the net over it. It was a JOKE!— Arrogant Alien (@SonofArrogance) July 8, 2014
Melinda Harrison. Jason Themos. KV.Beale. Tim Todd Grayson. to name but a few recent aliases.— Arrogant Alien (@SonofArrogance) July 8, 2014
I hope somebody reads this feed someday and realizes that I did try to tell the truth about this whole thing. But my prank worked too well.— Arrogant Alien (@SonofArrogance) July 8, 2014
Here's a little mystery. The MOS screenplay I sent to the sites under the alias Kv. Beale and TimToddGrayson. But there was a second— Arrogant Alien (@SonofArrogance) July 8, 2014
I tested the scribd website by posting the Warner Bros watermarked screenplay to the site. But I didn't leak that one. Only the MOS file— Arrogant Alien (@SonofArrogance) July 8, 2014
Oh and for the record WARNER BROS DID NOT put me up to this. My gf did.— Arrogant Alien (@SonofArrogance) July 8, 2014
Oh and one last thing. How the fuck did no one notice I put GUY GARDNER in there? He's my favorite Lantern!!!— Arrogant Alien (@SonofArrogance) July 8, 2014
