Batman vs Superman Has an Official Title!

After months of casting announcements, suit reveals, rumors and speculation, principle photography finally begins today in Detroit on Warner Bros’ Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs Superman. Well, that was the case until this morning, when Variety has confirmed that’s no longer the title of the upcoming superhero film.

According to reports, the new film will now be officially titled Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, pretty much summing up the most pressing question we’ve had about the film: is it really a Justice League movie in disguise?

With Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg all confirmed to be appearing, the pressing question now is how the film will sustain them all. In the end, they may not have equal screen-time, but this will certainly set the state for a Justice League movie that’s confirmed to be in development at the studio, with rumors currently putting release sometime around 2017/2018. Other rumors have speculated this film and the future Justice League film will shoot back-to-back, thus explaining the sudden release date push by the studio from 2015 to 2016.

The amazing thing is we now live in a world where Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Luke Skywalker and Han Solo all exist in real, production underway films. As nerds, how can we help to do anything but celebrate at that fact? You try not to smile realizing that in a time span of 12-months, a whole lotta awesomeness is going to be hitting theaters.

Like the new title? Let us know below.

The Worst of the Best: BUFFY “Where the Wild Things Are”



  1. Nyx says:

    Not true. As a nerd, I need a Boba Fett stand alone film!

  2. I hope Superman punches Batman in his smug face because Gigli fucking sucked.

  3. Mike says:

    I’m actually not happy with this direction for multiple reasons.  First,  if Wonder Woman and Cyborg are being featured in it as well, then why is it just not The Justice League at this point?  Second, I have no issue with Batman being apart of this Superman movie, but if it’s Superman’s film then they shouldn’t have the character infringe in the title.  Finally, if they want to have it with Batman in the tittle- as they obviously do -it shouldn’t be VS, it should be AND!!!  They are partners! 
    Also Snyder better not give Batman a holster and gun, like he wrote Superman snapping necks in the first film!

    • Le Douche says:

      Mike, you have such little knowledge on the canon behind the set up for this film it’s a little embarrassing

    • James Mobley says:

      In the comic history, they do fight.  It is brutal and both have good reasons for it.  Don’t worry, batman can hold his own and does pretty well.  So, yeah…same team…but gonna be a knock down drag out.

    • joe d says:

      you suck and should be ashamed of yourself, read a comic book poser.

  4. Marcus says:

    I like ‘Batman low fives Superman: Dawn of Justice’
    It’s low fives because the v is small… ok I’m done.

  5. RobotShlomo says:

    This is supposed to be a Superman movie, and he’s not even the TITLE CHARACTER.

    DC and Warner Bros. are showing they have no confidence in any other character besides Batman to carry a movie. 

  6. TheTVGod says:

    You know what? I like it…

  7. JBtheCape says:

    Bitch Bitch Bitch. Waaaahhhhh waahhhhhhh. Who cares what it’s called. I can’t wait to see it.

    • luckymustard says:

      I care what it’s named.  And there’s a ton worse names that it could have been.  So I’m happy it’s not one of them.

  8. Trey says:

    Soooo is this not Man of Steel 2 anymore or is this its own movie? I’m too confused by all of the news to get any sense of it anymore.

  9. Leo Costa says:

    So the next movie will be called ” Rise of Justice” ?

  10. larry says:

    Well thats a stupid fucking name
