Scintillating new details have emerged in the internet's ongoing investigation into a possible John Cleese role in the DC Cinematic Universe, possibly in Justice League, Ben Affleck's standalone Batman film, or both. According to ComicBook.com, who heard it from some guy on Twitter, John Cleese's twitter account has recently begun following both Ben Affleck and Justice League director Zack Snyder. Does this new evidence basically confirm that Cleese will play a role in an upcoming DC film? The answer is obvious.
Speculation that the Monty Python star would join the DCU began last week, when the same website, ComicBook.com, who if we're being perfectly honest probably deserves the Pulitzer Prize for this, reported (via the same guy on Twitter) that the Batman v. Superman U.K. twitter account and photographer Clay Enos, who has worked on DC films, were both following Cleese on Twitter. There's no official word on any of this from any reputable source, but, come on, this is four people/official twitter accounts of movies following each other on Twitter. It's pretty much a done deal, isn't it?
Bleeding Cool, of course, cannot confirm the veracity of this rumor, but we will tell you that you should keep an eye on the social media accounts the of key Justice League crew members including makeup and hair artist Nora Robertson, third assistant director: second unit Freddie Hall, and best boy grip Dave Wells, and draw your own conclusions. We'll update this article if anyone in any way associated with John Cleese follows anyone else associated with the DC Cinematic Universe, so we recommend you continue to click refresh on this article so you can be the first to know if there are any new developments.
