Last fall, Batman News readers 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 today, more fuel has been added to the fire.
Several Batman News readers brought to my attention a tweet from Cleese from last week. 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 high resolution 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 me know what you think of all this in the comments section below.
