Update: Did Kevin Smith write a Batman v Superman script to throw us off?

07.08.2014

UPDATE: Kevin Smith has taken to his website to refute the story that he wrote a fake BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE screenplay to mess with fans. Looks like whatever script is floating around online is a fake by someone else or possibly the real deal.

Kevin Smith is all over the Internet this week with news regarding his set visit to J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, his own film projects, and the rumor that he may have had something to do with all of the BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE tidbits we have been hearing about. In fact, according to a source within Warner Bros, the studio was all aboard this subterfuge.

MovieWeb posted a letter explaining exactly what Warner Bros and Kevin Smith have done and, if true, this may be the most ambitious plan to throw the online community off of spoilers that we have ever seen. Here is a brief excerpt from the letter.

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.

The source claims to be directly involved with the leaking of the screenplay to movie websites and blogs with the express purpose to throw fans off the scent of what is coming in BATMAN VS SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE and JUSTICE LEAGUE. This also means that we can probably discount almost anything we have heard so far regarding the film outside of set photos and official news from the studio. To be honest, this kind of makes sense. Kevin Smith has a long history of comic book fandom and a direct connection with star Ben Affleck. He even wrote a screenplay for a Superman movie that never happened. So, if anyone could confuse fans with rumors and plot points that were close enough to reality, it would be Smith.

As a fan, I have to applaud this move by Snyder, Smith, and Warner Bros. Or, could this be a massive redirect to make us think that everything we have learned is not true even though it may end up being in the film? If that is the case and the studio is trying to pull a Khan on us, I will be pissed. If this was all part of the plan, I will respect them for the bold move.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE hits theaters on May 6, 2016.

Figured this wasn't true but I think I'd rather read his script than someone else's. His Superman script was quite good and definable would have been better than the two movies that have been made since. The big news out of this though is that if you check the link he say's the Tusk trailer is coming at comic con!

Honestly, if this is true, it is pure genius on behalf of the studio or Snyder or whomever came up with this plan's part.

BATMAN: And if you had sex with a woman you would kill her.
SUPERMAN: That's not true. I can let the woman ride on top.
BATMAN: And what about when you cum?
SUPERMAN: I tell her I'm going to cum and she finishes me off with a hand job.
BATMAN: Have you ever done anal?
SUPERMAN: One time.
BATMAN: Did she go ass to mouth?
SUPERMAN: What?
BATMAN: You know, after having anal sex give you a blow job.
SUPERMAN: No. Women never go ass to mouth.
WONDER WOMAN: That's not true. In the heat

That would be the saddest thing ever. "I wrote a script for Superman Lives but it didn't get made. But I did write a fake script purely to function as a red herring, so I've got that going for me, which is nice."

Like him or not Kevin knows his shit when it comes to comics, like the person said below I bet his fake script would be better than anything anyone else would come up with. If this is true I hope we see it online at some point, I would love to read it!!!

Hmmm. Idk how I feel ab all that as I would much rather Smith be writing the real one then Goyer (but is Goyer even writing it? Idk). Say what you will about Smith, and it's quite possible that he's not going to negatively criticize anything Affleck, but if he's truthfully really excited about this film, and not just his bud, than that gets me pretty excited for the film. I trust his cosign on this.

WB should be putting this time and effort into the actual script so BvS doesn't turn into another MoS train wreck.

You can tell Kevin Smith wrote it by all the Dick and BJ jokes Batman kept saying.Kevin Smiths is more of a hindrance then helping Batman V Superman every time his name comes up in articles about the movie.

Im pretty sure if the script leaks

Itll be easy to discern the quality between the Argo screenwriter and Kevin Smith.

do you mean that Kevin Smith's will be better? he has certainly written better screenplays than Argo, and has a much more impressive filmography than Chris Terrio
