For the better part of the past year or so, Zack Snyder’s upcoming ‘Man of Steel’ sequel has had the unofficial title of ‘Batman vs. Superman’, with fans speculating over the title. Many believed it wouldn’t be changed; some figured the Vs. in the title would be changed in favor of the comic book title ‘Batman/Superman’.
But today we got the official title and logo and…well…
I don’t really care for the ‘Dawn of Justice’ subtitle, or the crammed in VS in the title…especially given how little of the film will surely be Batman and Superman actually fighting. That being said, it’s ridiculous to say this movie is going to be shit because of the title. The numerous other factors, yes, but the title? Come on now.
DC’s already got the odds against them. The film is already slated to lead into a ‘Justice League’ follow-up picture, and a lot of Justice League characters are reportedly being cast to appear in this one. Though the film is being cast really spectacularly, the introduction of so many characters, coupled with a creative team known more for flash in the pan action than plot and substance is already generating a lot of worry about how this film’s going to shape up. We’ll find out in May 2016, when ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ is due to hit theaters and go against Marvel’s third installment in the ‘Captain America’ series.
