‘Batman vs. Superman’ Official Title Revealed

We had previously been calling the Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman, but now comes word that the official title has been released.  With shooting underway in Detroit, Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is now the studios official title for the new DC superhero mash-up.  Obviously the film is looking to set-up the next film, the planned Justice League with the ‘Dawn of Justice’ now in the films title.  Reactions to the name so far have been far from positive, but most news regarding Batman v Superman is usually met with instant internet bashing.

So far the film has Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and rumors of an Aquaman, Green Lantern, Hawkman, or Flash appearance as well.  Joining these heroes will be Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and returning Man of Steel alums Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Diane Lane.

Let us know what you think of the title below.  Personally, I’m not a huge fan, but the title of the movie has never really gotten in the way of my enjoyment of a film.  So we’ll see where Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice goes from here, it’s just unfortunate that they followed the current Hollywood trend of a colon (:) separating the title and its subtitle (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, TransformersAge of Extinction, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and so-on).  I think simply calling it Batman vs. Superman would have served the purpose, but we’re currently in a bit of crisis when it comes to Hollywood and their film titles.  Oh well, never judge a movie by its title, or is it never judge a book by its cover?
