Cameras are rolling on Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman follow-up Justice League, which plans to spread its story out over two movies. Dividing massive studio films into two is becoming rather commonplace now, and has spawned a new dilemma for filmmakers; how to name those installments.
Thanks to a new report from Heroic Hollywood, we might have a clue about the direction Warner Bros. is headed in. It’s grain of salt time, folks, as the site’s scoopster has unearthed four rumored titles for Snyder’s first chapter. None of the suggested subtitles have been verified by Snyder or anyone at Warner Bros. Yet, but it’s nevertheless worth reading on if you enjoy a dip into speculation land.
According to HH, the titles are as follows:
- Justice League: United
- Justice League: Angels and Demons
- Justice League: Gods Among Us and
- Justice League: Gods Among Men
There’s nothing there that jumps out, but then again, Dawn of Justice wasn’t the most pant-wetting subtitle either. United makes the most sense in terms of logistics, and the slight Dan Brown-esque Angels and Demons is a bit too on-the-nose.
Still, most of these suggestions line up with what we know of Snyder’s comic book caper, which will find Bruce Wayne creating the titular team to fight an even bigger threat than Lex Luthor. It’s expected that Darkseid will be on hand to crush Batman and co. alongside Steppenwolf, and we’ll be able to find out how that all plays out when the first part of Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017, followed up by the second chapter in 2019.
