It’s a taxing time to be a fan of the DCEU. It feels like every other hour there’s a new report about the franchise being in deep peril or a brand-new film starting production imminently. From the constant “is Ben Affleck staying or going” debate to the news that Flashpoint will reboot everything, our hearts are really fragile right now.
While there’s an element of truth to more than a fair share of these rumors, there are many that are completely ridiculous. To be rather frank, it’s the fault of these so-called “ace scoopers” who often release bogus tips to get the Internet into a frenzy about something they heard from a guy who heard it from his cousin’s girlfriend’s father’s co-worker at the liquor store. Also, Reddit is quickly becoming a source of great entertainment, since most of the users are purely trolling the media now.
Say what you want, but there’s more fun and excitement in the DC fandom than anywhere else at the moment. The passion is alive, and that’s the reason everyone is talking about these films and spreading the gossip (or gospel, depending on how you see it). So, we’ve decided to look back at some of the most insane rumors to date and list them for you to reflect on and have a good ol’ chuckle.
If there are any rumors that you think we’ve missed, please do let us know in the comments section. After all, we’re sure there are plenty others that you’ve heard and read over the years.
