** ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' had a similar instance, as when they were filming in Chicago, they shot under the phony title ''Rory's First Kiss'', referring to Nolan's son.



* [[Film/JamesBond Eon Productions]] made sure to say in ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' [[spoiler:Naomie Harris was only an agent named Eve, not Miss Moneypenny. Harris herself stated that she couldn't see the character in a desk job. Then in the film's ending, Eve states she's not fit for field work and reveals her full name as Eve Moneypenny...]]
** Similarly, in the lead in to ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', both Eon and Creator/ChristophWaltz have vehemently insisted that the latter's character Franz Oberhauser was ''not'' [[spoiler:Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Cue third act dramatic reveal]].

* Bill Maher pulled the same stunt in ''Film/{{Religulous}}'', from the opposite point of view.



* Creator/GeorgeLucas in regards to practically everything ''Franchise/StarWars''-related. Are there six films? Nine films? Twelve films? Depends on when you ask him, but expect him to disavow any other option. When did Darth Vader become Luke's father? Since the beginning? Eh, probably not based on drafts of the scripts, but that's what he'll tell you.
** During the filming of ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'', Lucas and the film crew went to great lengths to avoid anyone spoiling TheReveal before release... to the extent of replacing the line [[LukeIAmYourFather "I am your father"]] with "Obi-Wan killed your father" in the script, so if anyone did leak the big secret, they'd leak the ''wrong secret''. Creator/MarkHamill was only told of the revelation a moment before the scene was filmed, even David Prowse wasn't informed. Thanks to Vader's full face mask, they were able to simply take Creator/JamesEarlJones aside, record the real line in secret, then swap it in during editing.
*** In fact, David Prowse was famously annoyed that he was not told since his body language would have been completely different otherwise. Hamill also claimed he would have acted differently if given more time to prepare.

* Creator/MichaelBay found he could keep no secrets while making ''Film/{{Transformers}}'', so he subverted it by being completely open. After his computer was hacked, anyway. However, he's ''publicly announced'' that there will be false leads and red herrings thrown out there in regards to the sequel. Writer Roberto Orci had remarked that it seemed most fans could tell the real news from false news, and [[TrailersAlwaysSpoil trailers leading]] up to ''Revenge of the Fallen'' outright disproved Bay's remarks.
** Bay was more successful in his misinformation for ''Dark of the Moon,'' where he stated that fan-favorite Shockwave would be the main antagonist of the film. The result was that the TheReveal of the true BigBad [[spoiler:(Sentinel Prime, ancient leader of the Autobots and Optimus's former mentor and father-figure)]] was a huge blow to viewers. While Shockwave does appear in the film, his role is [[DemotedToExtra sadly short]].

* Most ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' fans agree that Creator/StephenieMeyer is a [[ShapedLikeItself lying liar]] [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment who lies]], since before ''Breaking Dawn'' came out she had said that it was impossible for vampires to have children, only for Edward to impregnate Bella halfway through. Meyer insists that while she was deliberately misleading on the subject, she never outright said that a male vampire couldn't get a female human pregnant. Which may be true, but she still lied, as she said it implicitly. And then there's the thing where she ''had'' said that when people become vampires [[OurVampiresAreDifferent in her world]] all of their bodily fluids turn into "venom". When someone pointed this out to her, she insisted that she ''meant'' "except semen."

** With ''AnotherCenturysEpisode R'', he said because they were focusing on the "core elements" of each series, they would have one to three playable machines tops. The nigh-instantaneous fan backlash prompted him to reveal that [[MidSeasonUpgrade Mid-Season Upgrades]] and [[MechaExpansionPack Mecha Expansion Packs]] qualify as one unit, classed under the metaphorical header of the base machine. While some series (mostly the more popular ones like ''Anime/CodeGeass'' and ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'') do have more than three machines apiece, they're typically limited to three or four '''characters''', meaning that most of the secrets are expansion packs, upgrades, or even ''down''grades (as witness ''Anime/CodeGeass'' with a grand total of ten machines, half of which are Lancelot variations pilots by Suzaku or C.C

** Ryan Murphy's penchant for lying doesn't stop at Glee, though. He's lied various times about plots in AmericanHorrorStory, like when he claimed that Luke and his mother in [[Series/AmericanHorrorStoryCoven Coven]] were important characters ([[spoiler: he killed off Luke offscreen and with barely a mention and his mother was killed in the very episode this info was revealed]]), and ''Series/ScreamQueens2015'', where he made claimes that were totally disproven by season's end, like 'a regular will die each week' [[spoiler: only THREE regulars out of the main cast got killed, GiGi (Nasim Pedrad), Earl Grey (Lucien Laviscount) and Pete (Diego Boneta), and those were in episode 9, 10 and 12, and at least Earl was barely a character. Most of the body count was made of minor characters or guest stars brought in only to add to the bodycount]] or 'only four will survive the season' [[spoiler: as explained before, there weren't even four MAIN CAST DEATHS, and as of the first season finale, 'The Final Girl(s)', nine characters - Grace and Weston Gardner, Dean Cathy Munsch, Chad Radwell, Denise Hemphill, Zayday Williams, Hester Ulrich, Sadie Swenson/Chanel #3, Libby Putney/Chanel #5 and probably Chanel Oberlin as a tenth - survived the Red Devils' murder spree]].

* ''Dark Avengers/Uncanny ComicBook/XMen: Utopia'' crossover. Writer Matt Fraction promised that in a fight between two teams [[BigGuy Colossus]] will be a balance for [[TheBrute Ares]] and [[FlyingBrick Sentry]]. They never meet in the story - Ares was fighting with New Mutants, Sentry faced [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Namor]] and only thing that Colossus did was fighting Venom.

Fraction keep his promise about a fight between ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}'s son {{Daken}} and [[OppositeSexClone X-23]]. He just had to add two other girls to the mix.

Guess what happened (and ''then some'') about a year later? If you need any help understanding that, read ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay'' for answers.
