Official Title and Logo for BATMAN VS SUPERMAN Movie


We finally have a title for Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" sequel previously known as "Batman vs. Superman". The film will be officially called "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". Warner Bros. also released a statement along with an official logo for the movie. Why they replaced Vs. with V is still a mystery, but one thing is certain. The studio is aiming to start up the "Justice League" movie and they're through being subtle. Personally, I think the title is the definition of overkill, and it feels like maybe they're aiming too high, too quickly. But, Marvel has established its own cinematic universe, and DC feels like it needs to do the same. I only hope that they're not rushing the job, or we'll end up with another "Batman and Robin".

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" stars Henry Cavill, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, Ray Fisher and Laurence Fishburne. The release date is May 6, 2016.
