DC FanDome announcements 'leaked' on Reddit, James Gunn debunks rumors and fans say they're too good to be true
The much-awaited DC FanDome event might still be a good month away, but that hasn't stopped fans from speculating about some of the key announcements that would be made during the DC event. From Ben Affleck's return as Batman to details about David Ayer's cut of the 'Suicide Squad', and the return of some of DC's best-animated series of their biggest superheroes, fans have been looking at every possible topic that could be addressed.
That said, a Reddit theory claimed to have the complete list of announcements. And while the list seemed mighty impressive, it does feel too good to be true. Some though are believable while a bunch of them are something the world has to wait for and not hold its breath. The list included a new official trailer for 'Wonder Woman 1984', Zack Snyder's cut of 'Justice League and James Gunn's 'The Suicide Squad'.
Jason Momoa's 'Aquaman', 'The Flash' movie starring Ezra Miller, 'Shazam 2' and Dwayne Johnson's 'Black Adam' would be having cast announcements. Updates of the Ayer cut, Justice League Dark project in the works with Keanu Reeves slated to play John Constantine, a Cyborg project starring Ray Fisher and Ben Affleck's return as Batman made the rest of the highlights. Needless to say, this led to a flurry of comments on Twitter and one of them was James Gunn who replied: "Sorry to hamper anyone's excitement, but this isn't real."
A fan tweeted, "It doesn't matter, this source is not real. It's very likely that some of this stuff happens, but as of right now this post is not factually accurate." Another wrote. "I knew it was bulls**t when they said Ben Affleck was coming back. Lmao." Another fan said, "It's either have ur expectations low or believe in it and have it high only to be disappointed when it isn't true."
"I'm going to assume you are around 6 years old If you believe everything you see on the internet. Reddit is filled with fan fiction. This post is just a guy sharing his imagination but taking advantage of the fact that dumb people will believe it and actually tale it seriously," a fan opined. "This would be epic if true, but then why doesn't David Ayer seem to know about it. After all he is asking us to ask for his cut," another fan pointed out.
"The first shot there was depressing as it was all 'The Mattman' and 'Suicide Squad Not By Ayer', but if the #Batfleck and #ReleaseTheAyerCut stuff is coming, then we're all good! I'm not getting my hopes too high, but damn, if this is true," a fan wrote. "Basically a wishlist, so flip a coin and at some point, I’m sure 50% or more will come true," a fan said.
