‘BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE’ is official title of ‘MAN OF STEEL 2’
Get it! ‘Cause they’re cramming every single fucking character from the DCU into this movie for some unexplainable reason? It’s the dawn! Of Justice! League! Wait. No, no, no. It ain’t the Justice League flick. Wink. But I mean…if they’re rushing everything so much, why not just acknowledge it and title the movie fittingly. Justice League: Everybody In The Kiddie Pool Except Superman and Batman Because They’re Too *Sad* To Change Into Their Trunks. I like my title.
Zack Snyder’s upcoming ensemble superhero film finally has a title: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film will see Henry Cavill reprise his role as Superman from Snyder’s 2013 Man of Steel and Ben Affleck filling the role of Batman — which we got a first look at just the other week. A number of other heroes and villains are set to turn up in the film, including Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). Filming has already started for the movie, but it’ll be a long time yet before you can watch it: it’s set to open on May 6th of 2016.
From the sound of its subtitle, Batman v. Superman will also be a big piece of the setup to the Justice League film that Snyder has signed on to direct next. That film isn’t expected until 2017 or 2018, but Warner Bros and DC Comics are clearly eager to stoke some excitement in advance. Marvel has a huge lead on superhero movies, and Dawn of Justice may well make or break fans’ excitement for what comes next. Man of Steel itself saw only lukewarm reviews, but with all of the big names — from both actors and heroes — that Snyder is throwing at this film, there’s good reason to expect something particularly exciting this time around.
