'Batman vs. Superman' May Be Going By One of These Awkward Titles

Everyone has been calling the Man of Steel sequel that brings Batman into the mix simply Batman vs. Superman, but the reality is the film remains untitled. Many think that going by the comic book title World's Finest is a great idea, but not everyone is a comic book fan, and that title doesn't make it clear that the movie features Batman or Superman. However, the alternative may be one of a series of awkward and basically terrible titles that Warner Bros. has registered through the internet brand protection company MarkMonitor. They all feature the phrase Man of Steel to make sure everyone knows this is a Superman sequel, but they also feature some generic phrases and Batman related puns. It's kind of a mess. Read on!
Man of Steel Battle the Knight
Man of Steel Beyond Darkness
Man of Steel Black of Knight
Man of Steel Darkness Falls
Man of Steel Knight Falls
Man of Steel Shadow of the Night
Man of Steel The Blackest Hour
Man of Steel The Darknness Within
We're hoping that these titles are merely for video games or other merchandising to tie into the eventual film. These are all just oddly worded titles with terrible "knight" and "night" puns, all involving dark adjectives. Some of them are too similar to Star Trek Into Darkness, while others sound like titles for horror movies. Batman vs. Superman is easily the best title for the film or even Man of Steel vs. The Caped Crusader would be preferable. Warner Bros. is releasing the film on July 17th, 2015, and we hope an official title will be revealed soon. Do you have any better titles?
