Kevin Smith Says Nikki Finke's List Is Legit Read More »

Despite directing one of the worst movies of Ben Affleck‘s career and not speaking to him for years, Kevin Smith has somehow had unprecedented access to Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘s development. Turns out he may or may not have been commissioned by Warner Bros. to write a fake script as part of a misinformation campaign that this information itself could just as well be a part of. Think Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, but nobody gets laid. Movieweb reports:

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.

Could this be true? I dunno, maybe? We’ll never know until Kevin Smith decides to brag about it once he’s done literally crying on the set of the Star Wars: Episode VII because he actually LIKED the prequels and should never be asked for an opinion on anything until the day he dies. The important thing is that hopefully this means casting Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor was one big, giant joke for everyone except Jesse Eisenberg.

“Alright, guys, I shaved my head. How do I look?”
“Holy shit, nobody told you?”
“Told me what? Hey, who’s that bald guy talking to Hen- Noooo.

  1. Haha, that pic is badass.

  2. Cock Dr

    Superman has tired out Batman with his incredible & relentless reach around powers.

  3. buzz

    Doesn’t Kevin Smith do anything anymore but be the internet mouthpiece for DC and Star Wars?

    For a guy “in the know”, why hasn’t he gotten one of these plush directing gigs? Apparently they are handing them out to everyone but him.

  4. That front pic pretty much sums up my overall expectations about this mess…

  5. You just had to find a way to post that picture again, huh?

  6. I wasn’t into comics as a kid and only recently learned a lot about the characters from playing the two extraordinary Batman video games, but nothing I have encountered would explain why Superman would be feeling up a drunken Batman on a rooftop. Not even Scarecrow messed with his head to that degree.,

  7. From the looks of that picture when Superman wants some loving, not even a batsuit is going to stop him. It really looks like Batman has succumbed to his destiny.

    • Powered by the Earth’s sun, Superman’s mighty Kryptonian penis is easily able to punch through the batsuit into the dark brooding mystery of the batanus.

    Wait a minute, you mean Jay and Silent Bob AREN’T making a cameo in Batman vs. Superman???

  9. Judging from that picture, Batman better start wearing Kryptonite trunks.

      Judging from that picture, that seems to be a moot point for Batman

      First time I’ve seen that picture. Is it a joke? Or are they really selling a movie with a picture that seems to feature Superman giving Batman a reacharound?

      Given how most of the comics geeks (and movies) are, that would be the most appropriate image possible, but still … really?
