A poster surfaced mid-November last year touting a "Wonder Twins" movie coming in 2014 courtesy of Warner Bros. Supposedly starring couple Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher as the sibling leads, rumors of a viral marketing attempt linked to the upcoming "Entourage" movie made its rounds, threaded by the HBO show's inclusion of an "Aquaman" movie and the film's 2014 release date. However, Marc Tyler Nobleman, author of books on the creators of "Superman" and "Batman," has debunked this theory, proving the "Wonder Twins" movie to be nothing more than a well-crafted hoax.

Participating in a conversation on the BatPodcast, Nobleman discovered that his host, Pat Evans, was the man behind the movie's poster, and reversed the roles to get all the details. According to Evans, he created the poster for a bit of fun in response to the onslaught of superhero movies throughout the past few years (that will absolutely continue through 2014), deciding that the "Wonder Twins" would be a most "preposterous" film for anyone to make.

"They were perfect, because it was just unbelievable enough a concept that it could be true, if that makes sense," Evans said. “'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?'”

When asked if he liked the Wonder Twins, Evans joked, "Who doesn’t love the Wonder Twins? Seriously. Just ask my kids, Zan and Jayna."
