I expect both Superman and Batman names on the marquee. WB has to milk this for all it's worth. You don't put them together and call it Autumn Frost 2.

Well, to be fair, there WAS going to be a movie called Batman vs. Superman about 10 years ago. Now, WB has learned a few things since then, but unfortunately I do that that title is a possibility.

If the general public doesn't understand the "World's Finest" subtitle they need to catch up with the nerds/geeks/fanboys and figure it out by the end of the movie.

*Batman/Superman logos*
World's Finest

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

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.

What about Autumn Frost: Rise of Lex Luthor?

The point is the movie should prove why Batman and Superman are considered the world's finest.

It benefits Warner Bros if the audience agrees/understands that these characters are the world's finest by the end of the movie.

The subtitle elevates the heroes and status of the franchise. Win-win for WB.

I really Hate the "VS". Its lame and just reminds me of freddy vs jason or predator vs alien. Plus I thought this was supposed to be a sequel for Man of Steel. Why should batman be in the title at all?

It's funny... Batman hasn't been in the title of the last two Batman movies but now his name might be in the title of the next Superman movie. WTF?

Superman should get top billing but it'd be stupid not to market it using Batman's name from a business stand point.

It is possible the Batman vs Superman domain that's been registed is for some viral marketing for the when the film everntually goes into production.

Worlds Finest with the Superman/Batman logos would be fine.

Batman/Superman :World's Finest

I imagine the combined symbol logo will act as the "title" whenever it can be used.

It should even be considered a Superman sequel.

Keep WF and MOS2 separate and make double the money.

Great minds think alike but some people type slightly faster I see.

I agree "vs" shouldn't be in the title.

It's extremely tacky.

If this really is a "batman/superman" movie and not MoS 2 (they're still being iffy on that) I think it only makes sense for Batman to get-top billing?

Alphabetically in an OCD sense Batman should come before Superman and business wise it's pretty evident?

"VS" is a huge mistake IMHO. It makes it sound like a silly gimmick movie like Freddy VS Jason and not a serious contender in the war against Marvel to set up Justice League. Sounds more like an animation as well. Creativity and the title needs to sell this movie even FURTHER. It's a big key to the puzzle.

Superman: Gotham's Finest
or
Man of Tomorrow: Gotham's Finest sounds good to me.

It's a toughie, not gonna lie but please......no "VS." I haven't been critical yet of anything. Loved MOS and sing its praises. The "VS" in this title I would NOT like. Gives off an entirely different impression in what I'd like to see.

I say only use Batman in the title if its not a sequel. If it is, Superman or some other alias of his and his only in the title.

Either way Batman is a much bigger draw than Superman.

Why would they not advertise Batman when the last movie made almost twice as much as MOS worldwide?

I think Batman may find his name in the title one way or another.

But that doesn't advertise the characters and you include the tacky versus word.
