Default Batman Vs Superman: can't we find a better title than that? Any suggestions?

I can't believe this movie might be called just that: this superhero vs that superhero. What are we, 6 years old? I'm worried because WB has apparently bought the right to websites with that name and similar ones, so this is a real possibility. So lets get the easy one out of the way: World's finest. There, doesn't that sound better already? your suggestions are welcome.

GA audience doesn't know that reference though and won't understand the impact/importance like the geeks and fans do. I agree that VS title of two superheroes is retarded.

GA is who WB really care about.

As for titles, I don't know what to call it.

Superman and Batman: World's Finest?

I'd definitely be pleasantly surprised if they could find a way to creatively sidestep the very pedestrian sounding "Batman vs. Superman".

Taking a shot in the dark...Batman & Superman: The Fight for Tomorrow

Still kinda clunky I know, but hey it's no worse than Avengers: Age of Ultron

I'd prefer Batman & Superman, World's Finest, or Batman vs Superman over your suggestion. The subtitle is pretty meaningless, I don't think this movie needs a subtitle. I really think one of the titles I suggested is enough

"Worlds Finest" may not have the GA in mind, but it will when trailers and TV spots and such hit. If they really can't remember, they'll just walk into the theater and say "the Batman and Superman movie" and they'll see World's Finest.

The problem with the title is that it just implies that they'll be fighting each other throughout the whole film, which is what I don't want. This should be a MOS sequel with Batman featuring in it. Also how will Batman have a chance against Supes with no Kryptonite?

Nobody knew what the Avengers meant, and that made butt tons of money.

That being said, they didnt have the option of throwing all 4 names in the title..

Though is be fine with Supes vs Bats, id prefer:

the world's finest

Men of Tomorrow

superman & batman

Batman & superman: the world's finest

When Worlds Collide

The problem I have with "Batman vs Superman" is its so simplistic. It implies the film is just that. A deathmatch which in terms of plot makes it sound about as sophisticated as Freddy vs Jason.

Here is an idea:

Have the Superman/Batman emblems with a subtitle. Dont actually put Superman or Batman in the title. Simply imply that with their overlaid emblems.

*Batman/Superman logos*
World's Finest

Or something of that nature. IMO that's the cleanest and classiest way to go.

I'm sure that most people think this when they suggest titles without Supes or Bats.

--

Also, Snyder and co said that they felt like the symbol of Superman was enough to get the point across for MOS.

Perhaps they'll go with the same reasoning this time 'round.

Exactly. Best title. Most obvious one.

I agree with each and every one of your points. I hope Batman VS Superman is just a working title they're going with, until the whole thing is done. I mean I envision this DC Cinematic Universe saga to be a grand epic and titles like Batman vs Superman looks like an old school Capcom game. Snyder & Nolan could do better than that.

Here's what WB needs to do. Call it Man of Steel 2: The World's Finest and actually put some EFFORT into advertising and marketing e.g. viral videos like the Zod video or mysterious photographs/other material concerning a Red-Blue Blur, a giant Bat, a Red Flash, something about Ferris Aircraft, life on Mars, Amazon nations and stuff on companies like LuthorCorp/LexCorp or Wayne Industries.

I think "World's Finest" could work as a subtitle, like some are suggesting. I think either of these could work:

Man of Steel: World's Finest
Superman/Batman: World's Finest
