Official title and logo revealed; Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

May. 21, 2014by: Sean Wist

We all became pretty comfortable with the Batman vs Superman moniker, and I'll admit that I never really gave a thought to a title change. It seems Warner Bros. has, as the official title of the film has been revealed, and it is BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. The new logo was revealed as well, which looks pretty familiar at this point.

Has this picture been talked about enough?

At this point, they could call it Batman v Superman: Electric Boogaloo and people will still show up in droves (myself included) to see the flick. I'm pretty indifferent towards this title change personally, as great titles don't make great movies.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE will call itself what it wants when it lands in theaters May 6, 2016.

I like it. It's simple enough and gets the point across that the Justice League is on the way. Still no reason to really go ape-shit on this film yet.

My problem with this is that the human race still does not even know Superman. Are we going to flash forward a bunch of years and just assume everyone loves him now and hes the all American symbol of Justice and Virtue without seeing any of it?

And it cannot be a VS as in them fighting because that would be ludicrous even for a movie, Supes would wipe the floor with Bats in about a millisecond.

I think its going to be about ideals, Batman is dark, gritty, bend the rules to get things

I think its going to be about ideals, Batman is dark, gritty, bend the rules to get things done, while Superman is moral to a fault and will let someone go if he cannot prove they are guilty. So I think the conflict will be over these types of issues not physical.

But I just think that after Man of Steel there are way to many unanswered question about Superman's interaction with Humanity in general. And I guess they are just going to gloss over that, sad.

In Man of Steel, Superman was actually darker and bent the rules much further than Batman. So their dynamic in the comic can't work in this film at all. Superman can't be the guy that takes the moral high ground after the events of Man of Steel.

I still don't understand why the NEED to call it Batman Vs Superman at ALL...Its the sequel to The Man of Steel duh?? so why is Batman even in the title? I just feel like the all these goofy mistakes are abound and the movie still has yet to be made......I'll say it again, WB's does not know how to handle this property...and they want to do a JL movie???

WORLD'S FINEST

Have faith guys, everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I believe at the end of the day everyone cares a lot about these characters, which explains the million comments on every piece of news regarding this movie, I'm definitely going to be there and I'm sure all of you will too, lets take it easy on the complaining and just remember that going to the movies is supposed to be fun and entertaining.

Wow...

Seriously. The amount of bitching about this movie is insane. It's two damn years away, so far the only thing we have seen at all is a photo of Affleck in the batsuit, and that's IT. And already it's THIS MOVIE SUCKS THE HELL WITH IT OMG THE TITLE OF THE MOVIE HAS BOTH NAMES AND THE TITLE IS SO LONG. Seriously. Why can't people just be happy with the fact that they're giving us a god damn movie with both Batman and Superman in it together? How damn cool is that? Am I the only one who realizes

Just be happy that we're getting movies like this and wait the two years and then bitch and whine when you actually will have something there before your eyes to really judge.

No big deal for me. I'll be more disappointed if they drop 'of America' from Justice League of America. Or when they drop it.

Cant believe some are arguing

About who should go first. Does that really change anything? The name will no doubt put bums on seats. Especially the non comic book people.

I don't mind the title , it tells us what's the movie about. I like it better than say Star Trek: into darkness.

It's kind of a mouthful to go from Man of Steel to this, but maybe it represents a shift away from the Nolan-shepherded style that film was made under, and will be more of a prequel to Justice League, which DC should really be concentrating on now.

Dawn of Justice? seriously?

bleeeeccch.... really?
c'mon might as well call it Dawn of the Justice League and leave it at that....
I always hated when superman and batman had a VS story.... 1) why would they fight? 2) Superman would totally kill Batman flat out if he wanted to, in a movie you'll see Superman holding back everything he has to to keep from killing this guy...
but whatever I'll still be there to pack the seats. hopefully it'll be good.

Morix, you have a good point. But if we are talking about hand to hand combat, Superman would win in seconds.

The truth of the matter is that I never cared about the name. I'm stoked to see this movie. With all the people bashing every little thing about it, I just do not see any indication of why this movie would be bad. It has great acting talent and an excellent writer, Chris Terrio. Once again everyone is throwing a hissy fit because they didn't name the movie what they wanted them to name it.

I calling it right now. BvS is going to make a little over $300million domestically (maybe $350), and $200million of that will come from opening weekend alone. After opening weekend, it's going to sink. I see it performing like Twilight, which is exactly what Man of Steel did. Massive opening weekend because fanboys don't give a shit about quality, they only want fanfare, then a sharp decline due to word of mouth.

Would you knock it off with the Twilight comparisons already! One photo, a title, and a logo. That's all we have to go on right now. Just because you hated Man of Steel doesn't mean that this movie will automatically suck. Stop making assumptions about the people who did like the film, get the fuck over yourself, and move on with your god damn life if all you intend to do is shit on this film at every turn. Everybody knows how you feel about this by now.

sharp decline in ticket sales after opening weekend: thats what ALL MOVIES DO!!!
every movie now Hollywood can expect a 50-75% drop in ticket sales after weekend #1 and dropping steadily after the second weekend.
ALL movies do this, Hollywood has conditioned the theater goer to pack seats on opening weekend because movies dont stick around for more than two months at best.

Wow

This is a mouthful of crap. Of course they would go for something as generic as Dawn of Justice. We get it, it leads to the Justice League and the whole dawn, rise, darkness crap has been done to death, be more original! There is just so much of this movie that just isn't on point at all. Let's start with the title. Number one this is suppose to be a sequel of Man of Steel so why is Batmans name first in the title? Secondly, the actors are good but not good for these parts, I mean Jesse

Secondly, the actors are good but not good for these parts, I mean Jesse Eisenberg is like 30 years younger then Affleck and Cavil when Lex is suppose to be older. Yea, yea most of you say oh it's about the actor not the age or something stupid like that. Yes it is about the age, the ethnicity and everything above. Most of you probably won't give a pure crap about my opinion but I'm going to give a rundown on how I would have done this film. TITLE: Man of Steel: Worlds Finest, ACTORS/CHARACTERS: Henry Cavil/Superman, Scott Adkins/Batman, Gina Carano/Wonder Woman (not in costume, just an intro), Bryan Cranston/Lex Luthor, Aaron Taylor Johnson/Jason Todd/Red Hood, NO Cyborg (maybe in a latter film), Ian Mckellan/Alfred. BATSUIT: The suit isn't to bad I guess and I'll like it if they go for the Black and Gray ordeal like I would do, but not the Blue and Gray. So there is what I would have done with those parts, but sadly this is an imperfect world and we will get what they give us.

And for all those saying "it's just a title, it doesn't matter", it does. Choosing an over-worded title that sounds like an iPhone game shows that Snyder and co. are making some pretty uninspired and lame creative choices. I was willing to give them the benefit of the doubt on some of their casting decisions, as it made me happy they were trying to differentiate themselves and take the franchise into a new -- if unexpected -- direction, but come on. This title just sounds dumb. All you had to

I don't think the longer title will keep people from seeing it, no. But forcing the cliched and cheesy "Dawn of Justice' subtitle just so they can build hype for the future justice league movie leads me to believe that they're making stupid creative decisions here. Its Batman and Superman, probably the greatest concept for a superhero film to date. Just give us that, don't turn this into another set up film for the bigger franchise like Iron Man 2/ASM 2. The title sounds stupid, but it won't

There's still hope...

...the movie's still 2 years away. Maybe they can change the terrible title. It's just a mouthful. Batman v Superman, almost like a court proceeding, wouldn't be surprised if Superman is "put on trial" for the damage he caused in Man of Steel, wether that be literally or figuratively. Dawn of Justice; we get it, you're making a Justice League movie. Call it Batman v Superman, call it dawn of Justice, Man of Steel 2, World's Finest, I really don't care but I really hope this gets changed.

But whatever. I guess we'll just have to accept the more cumbersome and cliche "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice".

I've always felt the Dark Knight Returns logo was a little bloated and shapeless, but it went with a bulkier, bolder Batman and helped emphasized how physically imposing he was, especially when up against foes like the Mutant Leader. On the whole though, I think this version of the logo could have been streamlined and defined a little.

Ugh...

The biggest disappointment about this title is the fact that is is definitely not a Man Of Steel sequel anymore as he deserves (which we kinda knew already). Supes doesn't even get his name first in the title... sad.

I like it

It serves its purpose of informing us what this movie will actually be. Now we know that it's not a "Man of Steel sequel" as many were calling it but an ensamble film like Avengers or Freddy vs Jason. Yes, it follows the events of MoS but it's not Superman's film guest starring Batman but rather a World's Finest movie. The same way as Avengers wasn't an Iron Man sequel starring other heroes or FvsJ a NOES sequel starring Jason. It's its own thing and I'm happy because of it.

Dawn of Justice, on the other hand, informs us that this will try to introduce, probably in cameos, other members of the Justice League, keeping the spotlight on the two main heroes, and will lead into the creation of the League. That's a good decision, because then, the Justice League movie, will not follow the same plot-points of Avengers, it will not be a copy, but rather it will introduce an already existing League that was formed at the end of "Batman vs Superman". Good call.

Furthermore, it's just a title.

Fine with the logo, fine with the title. Could have done without the V. Personally, I think the V was added for the people. That's what most have been calling it and unfortunately they ran with it probably thinking it's what the fans wanted. They answered a lot of fans with man of steel and still got some hate. Damned if you do, damed if you don't.......either way, I'm going to go see it.

Sounds like the high stakes courtroom thriller we've all been waiting for. Also starring Matt Murdock and Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law, and presided over by Judge Dredd.

Maybe

We are looking at this wrong. I don't think this is (nor do the filmmakers intend for it to be) a Man of Steel sequel anymore. What if the "Marvel way" is not the path they are taking with these movies? Instead of giving each hero their own movie, one (or more) hero(s) will headline and other characters will weave in and out of the story. This way we could see all kinds of cameos and team ups in each movie instead of waiting 2-3 years for a team movie. We all liked Black Widow in Cap2 and many

As much as I like Marvel and everything they've done, it is not the only way to do movies.

I like the subtitle

"Dawn of" is a little overused lately, same with "rise" but it is fitting.
The one thing that bothers me is that Batman comes first, because it is supposed to be a Superman sequel. But from a marketing I can understand it, because Batman sells better.

And while I am not a fan of the Batman logo myself, I respect their decision to go with it. also it is nice to see that the filmmakers know the material.

This movie feels like a crazy ex girlfriend that toys with your emotions. First Goyer is writing, bad. Goyer leaves and Argo writer takes over, good. They decide to cram in character making short cuts for Justice League without establishing them, bad. Synder releases that bat pic, great! Now, they give it a video game title, awful. What's wrong with World's Finest again?

I like the title because it makes this film less of a sequel to Man of Steel in the traditional sense of a series of movies about Superman as the main character and his continuing adventures, and more of a second film in a series in which Man of Steel just happens to be the first film that sets up a larger story that this is continuing but isn't about Superman alone.

It's just a title but...

..since it is in fact a sequel to Man of Steel it seems Man of Steel: Age of the Bat would have been more fitting. It covers the star and his aging guest. Plus, it's less cumbersome and sounds less like a two hour war between the two of them.

first off, Age of the Bat is a sillier title than Batman v Superman.

secondly, it means nothing. how is the movie about the age of the bat? is it literally Batman's age? or is it about his era? if the latter, why is the window of the time this movie covers the "age of the bat" more so than any other time frame that character has existed as Batman in even if it was not on film? clearly this character has a history in this universe established in Man of Steel, so why is the new film the

you don't know enough about the story to think it should be called Age of the Bat, beyond that it is a lame and cliche title to begin with.

we get it, you came up with a title you like and were hoping that the film makers would be of like mind and come up with the same title as well. but they did not, because it is a bad title and likely doesn't represent the actual film being made.

Whatever about the title, what about the bat symbol? Obviously they went with the big symbol so the superman symbol can fit inside it, and to a lesser extent to counter the thin one used by Nolan, but this one just isn't doing it for me. The shape just makes me think of Adam West or The Brave and the Bold, the cheesier side of Batman. Put together with the detailed alien-looking Superman 'S' just looks silly.

The symbol in Miller's Dark Knight Returns was an homage to the Adam West batman. Plus his Dark Knight Returns was a satire, which is why the symbol worked in that comic. I doubt BvS:TDOJ is a satire.

- Batman pic was released, nothing on supes (at least do them together!)
- "Justice" confirms it will be a setup to Justice league (if Wonder woman being cast didn't already do that)

The title and logo are fine by me

I mean, we all knew this was setting up the Justice League anyway, so at least they aren't trying to hide their intentions with that title. I have high hopes for this, but it all comes down to the actual movie. Before Spiderman 2 came out, I remember thinking how cartoony and silly the first one seemed to me, and how there was no creativity in the title (obviously), then it turned into one of the best comic movies that we've got. Its all about delivery. The talent, material, and money is

I still feel like pushing back the release date was definitely a good thing.

On another note, I really hope that this leads into some seriously kickass versions of other DC characters, ESPECIALLY ones that seem kinda silly to non-comic readers like myself. I want this franchise to make Aquaman/The Flash/Green Lantern/Robin/Captain Marvel (?), etc. into the new favorites for the next generation. DC shouldn't just hang their movie universe entirely on Batman and Superman. After this movie and Justice League, I wanna be able to say "Damn, that Aquaman is hardcore. I can't wait for his solo film!"

Just an observation, but Snyder is making it apparent that Batman will be quiet the focal point in this and it feels less like a Superman sequel. With the first picture being Affleck in the costume, the Batman logo over shadowing Supermans, and of course his name coming first in the title. Saying that, this title just ok with me, of course like the rest of you, I would have preferred "Worlds Finest". While I thought Man of Steel had a lackluster script with zero memorable scenes, I have faith

Batman: Justice must be served
Superman: Why?
Batman: Because you broke my satellite

I like how DC has inserted the word "Justice" into the title leading up the "League" movie. (Ala 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger preceding The Avengers 9 months later) Wishing that the "Man Of Steel" moniker would've remained in there somehow.

Dawn of Justice? That's the best Snyder could come up with? Yeah, this film is in great hands!

Even calling it Batman vs Superman is kind of lame. They are both good guys, and sure they'll have a show down, but everyone knows that they'll ultimately team up before the third act. So, it's not really Batman vs Superman. More like Batman and Superman don't get along at first.

World's Finest was the original Batman/Superman team up comic. Why not call the film that?

It's clearly trying to be a "clever" spin on the next movie that will follow this and what this movie is setting up. Amazing Spider-Man 2 should have done this too...Dawn of the Six. I kid. Seriously, if this movie was just about Batman and Superman, call it World's Finest but lets not waste a

Seriously, if this movie was just about Batman and Superman, call it World's Finest but lets not waste a great title on something this movie clearly isnt going to be about. I still say...the first 30 minutes of this movie will involve a ripped off punch up between Man of Steel and Batman...where Supes will roll with a punch from the Bat so not to break every bone in his hand/wrist/arm before they get it out of their systems, come to their senses and fight the real villain. I will eat my hat if the entire movie will be Batman at logger heads with Supes becuase the former thinks the latter is simply too dangerous to have around.

I think that I would have preferred Man of Steel 2. But whatever. I don't care what the title is. Just take my money already!

"World's Finest" would've been better. Or "Man of Steel: World's Finest" since they've insisted this is a sequel to "Man of Steel". But I guess Warner Bros. is smart enough to realize Batman is the bigger draw here, hence top billing. I only wish it were "Batman AND Superman". Not a big fan of the "versus."

Ughh...

This movie is going to be BAD! Worse than Man of Steel, which was also poorly written. I cant stand Goyer's style. DC is taking the wrong direction if they want to come close to catching marvel's success. This of course is an opinion.

I hate Goyer's style too, but I enjoyed Argo, so I am curious to see what Chris Terrio brings to this film, since he is the official screenwriter and Goyer just has a story credit. Is anyone other than me keeping up with who the writer for this movie is?

I guess I'm certainly not, thought it was Goyer. I really have an unhealthy amount of hatred for that Stanley Tucci looking mother fuckers unwarranted success.

Argo was decent, I'll withhold judgment until its out, I just have a bad feeling about this movie shitting the bed.

Safe

Kinda takes most fanboy complainants about not calling it justice league, while still keepin it O.G. It's not like we're gonna say the full title at the ticket booth anyway.

I'm ok with this

This movie is considered to be the sequel to Man of Steel. I think Batman v Superman will sound weird to refer to in the future. I think it could have been cool to call it Man of Steel with a subtitle that alluded to Batman being a major character in the film. I'm not creative enough to say what it should be, but I'm sure someone could create a catchy subtitle.

Only the current worlds finest is power girl and huntress (unless they changed it). Still worlds finest would've been cool.

Age of Ultron, Age of Extinction, Rise/Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Rise of Electro (in some foreign markets, at least)...can we get some new, original subtitles for a change? I agree with Sean though, a clunky, uninspired subtitle isn't exactly indicative of the quality the movie is going to be. I'm much more worried about the director, Goyer's involvement, the cast, and the fact that this seems more like a prequel for Justice League rather than a Man of Steel sequel. No choice but to wait

Goyer's involvement is minor. His script was rewritten completely by Oscar-winning screenwriter Chris Terrio. Goyer only has a story credit now.

I'm aware of that, but it's still troubling that Goyer is still considered the "godfather" for all of WB/DC's projects, much like Joss Whedon with Marvel Studios. Perhaps this is the first step to minimizing his involvement in these films though.

Still, that still leaves Zack Snyder, the questionable casting decisions, and the "prequelitis" this movie will most likely have, seeing how it has to set up Justice League. None of that exactly inspires confidence in this.

Just glad it's not called "Rise of Justice"

A name's just a name. The movie will speak for itself upon release.

That subtitle is rather superfluous and interchangeable with so many other generic possibilities for two great comic book heroes. I wish they had just gone with Batman vs. Superman and been done with it. Whatever. I just want to see the movie at this point.

So Batman's name is gonna come first in the Superman movie, huh? On behalf of Batman fans everywhere I would like to thank WB for finally settling the score.

maybe it isn't a Superman movie that merely features Batman.

It's the sequel to Man of Steel, so it is pretty much just that. How much of Batman we'll see is TBD, but this is a Superman movie.

I believe the original plan for a Man of Steel sequel has effectively gone out the window.
