    Well, for weeks now we have had one crazy rumor after another, both regarding casting and script. And all the time someone is saying "the cast will be announced this week".

    Who is behind it all? Are there people sitting in fancy WB offices trying to come up with just another absurd casting-rumor to mail to Robert and co., hoping they will take the bate? We all know the Bay statement regarding the next Transformers, maybe they are doing the same with JL. Or is it some of the haters of the JL movie (MOS and TDK camps) who is trying to make a mess of things and ruin the hype. Or maybe it's just random guys that are bored and who does their best to see if iesb, AICN and so on post fake rumors about an eskimo playing Superman?

    Or:

    Maybe it's all me. :ninja:


    What do you think? Is this a WB campaign? A haters-campaign? Or just coincidense?

    so you think that WB is sending false casting lists out there?
    that would be fantastic. but at the same time wouldnt this be an insult to all the actors who hae nothing to do with JL casting?
    i dont care. lets hope that this is all WB's plan to confuse us.

    Misdirection is becoming more and more common in Hollywood. Bay has told everybody there are going to be fake scripts going out and fake news being dropped. It's almost part of the fun now.

    In regards to JLA, it is even more possible because WB found leaks and could have fed them incorrect information. At first I didn't believe this at all, but now it seems to be the case.

    How would WB messing with us be fantastic :huh: I hope you're not serious. This crap has been going on for too long already. It's fine if they don't reveal it all very early...But we should hear something official from them! It's supposed to film in February.

    According to Porter here, http://www.comicscontinuum.com/stories/0711/18/scottporter.htm

    we should be getting official word this week. If we don't, then I think this movie may be in trouble.

    only because the casting choices are pathetic. i dont want this with every movie. but those actors are really bad for JL. so our only hope is that its all WB's plan.

    The only way this cast list is fake is if it's been misreported or falsified by an independent source somewhere down the line. There is NO WAY it was done by WB.

    Fake scripts are one thing, but a fake cast is another. You think these young aspiring actors, regardless of how wrong they are for these characters (which they are), would want anything to do with a campaign that puts them at the forefront of worldwide ridicule? Who would want their name to instill frustration and hostility among the fan community? They'll forever be known as "the guy no one wanted to play Batman."

    According to Emi Jayne (Before you start attacking her, she said cast would be releaed by the 18th months ago. Everyone assumed it would be because of that Con in Texas, but it turns out the NDA's on the actors keeping quiet went out on that day, confirmed by Porter at that Texas con. So she does seem have reliable sources since she said that date months ago.)

    makes sense that they should at least release a complete casting announcement before the end of the month. they cant wait until the holidays are over-- it would take too long
