Finally! We no longer have to refer to Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel sequel as… well, Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel sequel. While we’ve all just been calling it Batman vs. Superman ever since it was announced almost a year ago, Warner Bros. has officially added a little subtitle to that moniker, naming the film Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Obviously, the studio is referencing the next film in the franchise with this title, the recently announced Justice League movie (also to be directed by Snyder).
In all honesty, the added “Dawn of Justice” is a little bit goofy, but most movie subtitles usually are. Marvel employed a similar approach with Captain America: The First Avenger, so using franchise titles to set up future installments is nothing new, and at this point is kind of expected.
We also have an official logo for the film to share with you today, featuring the new Superman shield on top of the bigger Bat symbol that we saw on Ben Affleck’s batsuit last week. While the logo itself is similar to what was shown back when the project was first revealed, and is merely a darker version of the one from Comic Con, it’s still exciting that we’re finally getting some official news and updates on the film.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives in theaters on May 6th, 2016. Justice League has no official release date yet, but rumors place it in May 2017.
Tell us, are you happy with the official title? Or would you rather see the studio go with something else, or simply call it Batman Vs. Superman? Let us know in the comments below!
