In one of the least-convincing Internet hoaxes since a certain Nigerian prince sent a message of an “urgent, private” nature, a video purporting to be the teaser trailer for The Flash made the rounds last week.
There are a few dead giveaways, not the least of which is that it looks terrible beyond even Roger Corman’s Fantastic Four, or Legends of the Superheroes. Another tell is the preface that attests the trailer was shown before a “private screening” of Watchmen. (While footage of the Zack Snyder movie has been shown to journalists around the country, none of the reports mention anything about The Flash teaser.)
And did I mention the teaser is god-awful? It’s so bad that Defamer asks for a moratorium on “dorm-room exercises masquerading as official teasers.”
“Your mastery of Windows MovieMaker is impressive, but seriously, enough.”
I think they’re being kind, though.
