Could Comedic Icon be heading to the DCEU

So more and more is this unstable universe ever potentially expanding. Now I know that it comes off as if that we here at The Trusty Sidekick are just anti-DC, in which we are not. We want for them to put out the best possible product of the use of iconic characters.

Well recently it was noticed that Monty Python star John Cleese started following Ben Affleck and Zack Snyder on Twitter. He was also followed by the Batman v Superman UK Twitter account and set photographer Clay Enos. This lead fans to believe that Cleese may have a role in Justice League, and now, more fuel has been added to the fire.

Now its popped up that a tweet from Cleese from last week where he posted a picture of himself getting ready for a live event in his dressing room, but included in front of him was a stack of comic books!

Look at the photo in and you’ll see that Cleese has “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns”, “Justice League: Origin”, and “Batman Noir: Black Mirror”.

While this doesn’t 100% confirm anything, it certainly adds fuel to the rumors that Cleese has a role in the DC Extended Universe. Let us know what you think and who could he possibly be.

This could be the start of something rather MARVELOUS.
