Alright internet, time to pull out the Nicolas Cage "You don't say" meme. Which by the way, I was informed is pronounced as "meem" and sometimes "meh-meh." but never "me-me"... as it should be. Anyway, back in November, I and many other writers across the internet had written stories about a mysterious Wonder Twins movie poster that was sent to Midtown Comics. The popular New York comic book shop posted images of it, which had a suspicious 2014 release date, and was supposedly featuring real-life boyfriend and girlfriend, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher. They even showed that the packaging had a Warner Bros. logo upon it. From there the speculation began to build, and now it has been revealed to be a mere hoax concocted by Pat Evans. Pat spoke with Marc Tyler Nobleman of noblemania.blogspot.com about how and why he punk'd the internet.
Seriously, though…with the spate of superhero movies being released, I think it was just me thinking it would be fun to do a spoof version of one. I thought, “What would be the most preposterous superhero movie you could make?” Naturally, the Wonder Twins sprang to mind.

They were perfect, because it was just unbelievable enough a concept that it could be true, if that makes sense. “So crazy it might work” kind of logic. And Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher were kind of the clincher because they are in the media a lot now as a real-life couple. So it added that extra layer of “huh?”


One popular theory, was that the poster was for the upcoming Entourage film.
Also unfortunately, I didn’t think to change the release date from when I originally conceived the idea. I should have changed it to 2015— maybe that would have made it more believable as an actual film. Of course, with IMDB and everything now, it takes people about five seconds to figure out the truth anyway.

But what was weird is because people assumed that it was officially from Warner Brothers, it must be part of some sort of marketing gimmick for the Entourage movie because of their fake Aquaman movie and since it is due out in 2014. One person put forth that assumption online, and a lot of people ran with it. Repeat it enough times and it’s true!

So to finish answering your last question: I sent it to Midtown and the other more well-known comic shops in New York, L.A., and Chicago because I wasn’t able to pull off any great reactions at Comikaze and I had about half of the posters still left. So I said what the hell, I’ll send it to some comic shops and see what happens. I wanted to do something with them after all the trouble of having them made.


His reaction to the hoax's popularity:
I was pretty blindsided. Very surprising. It was pretty big: Cinema Blend, Huffington Post, Superhero Hype, Slashfilm, etc., plus it was the subject of several YouTube videos like AMC Movie Talk—where John Schnepp actually busts it as a fake. I gave him a poster at Comikaze. You were supposed to keep it a secret, damn you, John! Of course people already knew it was fake, they just didn’t know what to make of it.

The Wonder Twins were two alien siblings from the planet Exxor. Arriving on Earth, they soon endeared themselves to the heroic team, the Super Friends, and acted as the team's official sidekick/mascosts for a brief duration. Originally, the Wonder Twins were exclusive to the continuity of the Super Friends animated series and the Super Friends comic book book adaptation, but they were later re-imagined for the modern Post-Crisis environment and introduced in the pages of Extreme Justice. - DC Comics

Don't people actually have to fall for it to be one of the greatest hoaxes of anything?

Kutcher sucks, but I love Kunis. It would have been a funny movie, I think...

Are you sure this was one of the best internet hoaxes of 2013? I saw one article and that was it. I don't think anyone believed it.
Enphlieuwince - 1/15/2014, 1:28 PM

beane2099 - 1/15/2014, 1:31 PM
Who actually believed that business? It reeked of hoax from the start. Wait was that the right "reek" ? Or should it have been "wreaked"? No it's "reek." I'm sticking with "reek." Anyways it didn't seem real from the moment it was mentioned.

Saaaad((
beane2099 - 1/15/2014, 1:35 PM
No one anywhere is making a movie with any actors about anything for any reason; period. In fact no movie has ever been made, ever. It's all styrofoam balls, Easter basket grass, some corn cobs and a couple of ribbons.
AlwaysColtron - 1/15/2014, 1:36 PM
Soooooo. can we buy the poster ? I want one!
FoxForce5 - 1/15/2014, 1:38 PM

Oh, wait... what I meant to say was-

Ah, DUH!!!
I'm still waiting for the Ambiguously Gay Duo movie, starring Gusto and Nomis.

You don't freaken say.
Gyasiman - 1/15/2014, 1:44 PM
Gosh if anyone believed this as true they such not be on this site.
Gyasiman - 1/15/2014, 1:45 PM
With that said though, it was a great poster. Really well done.

I'd pay to smell her feet the whole day long. Alternatively , I can finally open that bottle.

I knew it was a hoax, but I can't be the only one who secretly wished it was true.
TheClemster - 1/15/2014, 1:51 PM

Bodwulf - 1/15/2014, 1:51 PM

BlackIceJoe - 1/15/2014, 1:57 PM
I don't think anyone thought the movie was real. Reason why Flash has not gotten his own film or even Wonder Woman yet. So why them before more important people. If it was a poster for Wonder Woman then yeah people would believe it. But it was not.
AverageDrafter - 1/15/2014, 1:59 PM
You know WB saw the buzz generated and seriously considered it for a moment.

"We gotta make them gritty though, lets have their parents have been drowned while saving a bunch of animals... irony is so hot right now. Irony. Can we get the Spalding people to start working on purple suits? DARK PURPLE"
lastCzarnian - 1/15/2014, 1:59 PM
boooo. never thought it was real, but it would have been a funny movie. wanted to see kunis in tights. :D
marvel72 - 1/15/2014, 1:59 PM
shame they would of made the dc cinematic universe awesome.
lastCzarnian - 1/15/2014, 2:02 PM

BeerForever667 - 1/15/2014, 2:04 PM
