After all the endless speculation, we finally have an official title for Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman movie–and it’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Warner Bros. announced the official title for their newest DC Comics’ movie as part of its never-ending campaign to tease comic book fans until they actually release the movie in 2016. The news comes almost a week after Snyder released the first shot of Ben Affleck in the new Batsuit while also standing in front of the new Batmobile.
The title obviously refers to the “dawn” of the Justice League, and the inevitable Justice League movie that will follow Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman film. It’s a lot better than some of the proposed names that Warner Bros. was considering to imply its mighty team-up like “Battle the Knight” and “Beyond Darkness” or even something really corny that foreshadows the Justice League like “Justice Rising” or “The Just of Justiceness.” “Dawn,” however, feels a little overused, especially when it comes to movie titles. There’s Dawn of the Dead, Red Dawn, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and From Dusk Til Dawn. Hell, the fact that the title shares even one word with not one but two of the Twilight sequels scares us a little bit.
