Yesterday, as I’m sure you know, was April Fools’ Day. And while we were over here at Reject HQ preparing an actual prank — the site was inadvertantly lodged in a time machine and transported back to April 1, 1980 (for those who didn’t notice) — many other sites were doing the usual: making up lies and trying to fool readers and other bloggers. We were tired of that, so we went a different route. Still, there were the lies, the trickery and plenty of tomfoolery.
One particularly interesting piece of foolish propaganda was this poster for the yet to be scripted, yet untitled and wholly ambiguous concept that is the next Batman movie. Sure, director Christopher Nolan is probably going to make us another round of Batman, but we don’t know when. And we don’t know who is going to be involved. But according to the industrious fan who put this little poster together, they’d like to see Neil Patrick Harris play The Riddler. It’s also safe to assume that they’d like to see Phillip Seymor Hoffman play The Penguin. This is all mere fantasy, but they do score points for the attention to detail. Even the credits match.
Our hats go off to Chase Whale, who first pointed this out yesterday. A nice find, similar to the David Tennant as The Riddler poster, which I’ve also included below.
