Piffle. It was such a weak twist, and telegraphed far enough in advance by whats-her-name, that they're actually doing the movie a favour by making it clear the film is actually about these two (as opposed to the original marketing campaign, which seemed to be about a superhero and his society coming to a reconcilliation, only to be completely diverted in the second half by this ill-thought plotline).
Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman
I agree, I wish I had known before I went to see it. Normally, I would applaud keeping the twist covered but I suspect the original marketing people had ulterior motives rather than doing the public a favor.
What I've heard about the scenes of the unrated version sounds rather WTF as well.
