Snyder's New Superman Movie May Be Titled 'Batman vs. Superman'
It's either Batman vs. Superman, or Superman vs. Batman, or one of those two. As we all know thanks to the huge announcement at Comic-Con on Saturday, Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel is being prepared as a Batman and Superman movie. Many have been calling it the World's Finest movie, referencing the World's Finest Comics from the 40's, the first ever Superman and Batman (and Robin) team-up. However, in a brief quote from writer David S. Goyer, it sounds like they may actually be pitting the two superheroes against each other. The announcement was brief and included no title or info, so the speculation continues.
During the Superman 75th Anniversary panel, Man Of Steel writer David Goyer said (via ComicBook.com):
"So over in Hall H at the Warner Bros.–I guess most people know now–at the end of the Warner Bros. panel, Zack came out and he brought Henry Lennix, who plays General Swanwick in Man of Steel and we–actually, Henry read a bit from [The Dark Knight Returns] and so the next film we're making, we're already in pre-production, comes out in summer of 2015 and it's–we're actually not sure whether the title is Superman vs. Batman or Batman vs. Superman but yes, it's–that rematch, that combination, the two guys onscreen and that's happening."
For anyone confirmed this is all just fluff, some fans have already spotted Warner Bros registering domain names online for Batman vs. Superman and Superman vs. Batman. It's very interesting to see that even the studio is undecided and essentially the two names are reversible and it doesn't really matter. Aside from the title being exciting for comic book movie fans (don't forget Wayne Enterprise was in Man of Steel), this also seems to confirm that the plot will involve the two superheroes at odds, and not necessarily teaming up at first. Makes sense to me. Billionaire vigilante with no superpowers doesn't like alien with God-like powers who brought other aliens to Earth and almost eradicated humanity (plus his satellite). What do you think?
