April Fools Day Fake Story – Superman Scenes Completely Cut from “Justice League” Movie

If you watched the recent trailer for the upcoming “Justice League” movie and wondered where Superman was… There’s a reason he’s missing. According to a news report at USA Today, Superman’s scenes have been completely removed from the film.

Director Zack Snyder told USA Today, “It’s hard to have a Justice League without Superman. But we didn’t feel he was completely necessary for the story we’re telling in this film.”

Henry Cavill, who attended the Warner Bros. presentation at CinemaCon earlier this week, was only told of the decision after the presentation by Zack Snyder. Even though he was reportedly very disappointed at the news, the humble Cavill would not speak out against Snyder publicly when reached for a comment.

Ben Affleck, on the other hand, was quite vocal about the decision, telling USA Today, “Let’s be honest. Superman is somewhat overrated. You don’t really need him in the Justice League when you’ve got Batman and these other heroes to save the day.”

Watch the complete video interview with Ben Affleck at the USA Today website.

You need to come up with better ones Steve

I think it’s one of your better ones. More believable than most you’ve posted over the years. You did kind of lose it toward the end with Affleck, but otherwise, pretty decent job, especially for the Facebook/Twitter shares.

I actually predicted you would write this very story for today. It was just too easy to let pass by. (But thanks for the effort anyway, I still like to read them)

Steve, I must admit, you got me. Good one LOL!
I actually believed it. And I was getting upset during the read. Then I scrolled down to the comments section and realized it was all in good fun due to the date.

Nice try, but with zero probability. Last year, however, you almost gave me a heart attack 🙂
