Kevin Smith Denies Writing A Fake Script For Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.09.2014
He didn't do it...
In a blog post on Silent Bob Speaks, Kevin Smith denied writing a fake script for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The rumor suggests that he was hired to write the script for Warner Bros, who would then release it to confuse the press.
He wrote: "There've been a few movie websites reporting I might've been involved in a Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice misinformation campaign, at the behest of Warner Brothers, director Zack Snyder and producer Chuck Roven. The idea was that everything I've ever said about the forthcoming big screen team-up of the World's Finest is a carefully constructed web of intrigue to throw movie sites off the real track.
Since last year at this time, I've been enjoying an unexpected period of prolificacy with screenplays... however none of those has been a fake Bats vs Supes 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."
