Let’s start with the date…. 1st April
I guess that really should have been the clue.
The master trickster himself, Mark Hamill decided it would be a great laugh to watch thousands of Star Wars fans squirm waiting for the promise of a small spoiler for Star Wars Episode VIII with the OK coming from Rian Johnson, the Director himself.
He continued his teasing for the best part of the day with subsequent posts.
The tweets kept coming and they kept on promising.
Mark’s following on Twitter increased….. unsurprisingly by quite a few thousand.
But as the Tweets continued, each one related to his characters of The Joker and The Trickster, it became clearer and clearer.
We’d all been completely had!
Damn you Mark Hamill!!
We really should have known better.
There’s absolutely no way that anything is going to be leaked this early on, but it was fun while it lasted.
