    Stephen Fry Fell For The "Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D." Advertising

    That's almost certainly what's just happened. Probably.

    Stephen Fry saw a billboard appealing for witnesses about an extraordinary feat in London today so he tweeted it.

    Goodness! There's a sorry there. Location (Golden Square) included … any witnesses. Was it Batman?

    The billboard is in fact part of some clever marketing for Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. which begins in the UK tonight.

    He quickly realised his mistake, realising that a man jumping from a fifth floor window would almost certainly die.

    Also, Batman is a DC character, not a Marvel character.

    At least, we think that's how it happened. It might just have been Stephen Fry being Stephen Fry.

    Oh dear - apologies for not knowing my Marvel from my DC …
