Are All the Batman v Superman Rumors Bogus?

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS)

There’s been a slew of rumors surrounding the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The latest which I covered was that up to five new antagonists were going to be in the new film but it turns out, that may not be the case.

Possible spoilers below!

Movieweb is reporting that a fake script was purposefully leaked by Warner Bros., and that the man responsible for the screenplay is none other than Kevin Smith. This wouldn’t be the first time Smith has written a screenplay with Superman in it, having penned Superman Lives, which was going to be directed by Tim Burton before WB pulled the plug on it. If this rumor is true, then it’s just another screenplay he’s written for Warners that won’t make it to screen, poor guy.

Here’s the email Movieweb received detailing Warner Bros. plans to throw fans off of what the story is actually about:

This isn’t a scoop regarding the plot or the details of the Batman v Superman movie or am I writing you in order to spoil or disappoint the general public.

My insider info regards a who has been the source of the vast majority of leaked information as regards to the movie and more importantly why.

Up until last year I worked for as a PA for a Warner Bros. exec until I was promoted to marketing. It was here I and several others where approached to work, directly and indirectly, for Susanne Knoll and sometimes Deborah Snyder.

It was here that I became a part of a particular strategy that Warner Bros has been using to great effect.

Early this year a Screenplay for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice which was commissioned by Warner Bros was leaked to several gossip sites. It was a scanned PDF of the entire screenplay baring a official Warner Bros watermark.

This script has been the source of almost every leaked detail about the movie for the last six months. It has been posted on sites then quickly removed due to cease and desist letters from Warner Bros.

While the screenplay is legit and the watermark is legit and it is was commissioned by Charles Roven himself…

But it is written by neither David S. Goyer or Chris Terrio.

It was written by Kevin Smith.

Late last year both Charles Roven and Zack Snyder approached Kevin Smith with a early treatment for the film and It was Kevin Smith who came up with the idea to write an entire screenplay based on it but with several huge red herrings and changes which do not appear in the final film. These include plot points and characters etc etc. and ‘leak’ it online.

This script was distributed by myself and others to gossip sites and movie sites like aintitcool, latino review, movie pilot, etc etc

My job was to pose as a worker at Warner Bros who was leaking the screenplay.

There were several others involved who posed as recently fired members of the production, interns and special effects artists and we all spread the misleading info around the web.

None of this was done maliciously and was a strategy to misdirect much of sites that intended to spoil the film.

All I can say to that is, if true, “bravo Warner Bros., bravo.” Slow clap.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice flies into theaters May 6, 2016.
