Also if its called first Superman/Batman:World's Finest
then for future sequels can called only World's Finest 2
But I'm more from
Man of Steel 2: TDK over Metropolis (Yeah I know its long but sounds awesome)
Man of Steel 2: World's Finest

Seriously, if there will ever be a superhero film that does NOT need the names of the heroes in the title, this is it. As someone just said, the symbols alone are enough to let people know what this film is about...since the Batsymbol and Superman shield are literally two of the most iconic symbols in all of pop culture and around the world. At this point, it'd just be redundant to plaster their names above the symbols on every poster and in every trailer.

Have some class, WB.

I think Superman/Batman: World's Finest could fit more and could get people familiarized with the title

I hope not. Save that kind of sequence for JL. I want Batman to be a completely unseen mystery when this film starts.

but yet we still has Man of Steel posters with the title Man of Steel and Henry Cavill dressed as Superman and the big \S/ glyph….thats kind of redundant…or the Batman begins poster with Batman on it and the title Batman Begins with the Bat symbol. Redundancy is not a bad thing in marketing.

Does the title really that much? To me, they could call it "Adventures with Superman and Batman" or something equally as horrible and I really wouldn't care.

They don't have to show the Batsuit. They could show Alfred looking ahead at Bruce as Batman for the first time, while we see the shadow of the Bat.

Not saying I wouldn't like a sequence for JL as well, but I'd like it here especially.

I think this movie starts on Superman saving casualties from the WE and/or giving respects to the casualties with as special day of commemoration

Man of Steel is not Superman's name. You didn't see his name on every poster, simply because it wasn't needed. People know what Superman looks like and what his symbol stands for. So my point is, if World's Finest was the title of the movie, you wouldn't have people staring dumbfounded at the poster since it would likely feature those two iconic symbols and even images of the characters.

BB had Batman in the title because A) it was stressing that we would finally see the beginning of Batman and B) after B&R it would've been especially hard to market a new Batman movie without his name in the title. Once Nolan had re-established Batman on film (like Snyder did with Supes), he made the bold move of titling the next film The Dark Knight...which did not have Batman's name in the title and went on to become one of the biggest movies ever.

I just don't see why after the title Man of Steel was used that they need to go back to having Superman and Batman's name in the title. I also don't see how anyone could say World's Finest is a "silly" title.

If WB doesn't call this next film ""vs"" it would be...dumb.
If they want to compete with Marvel, a studio that has been somewhat unconventional in their shame, they need to start playing.

Always open with a bang. I would go with a big action piece of Superman saving people…I don't know what it is yet because I keep reverting to him saving a plane and I think it's become cliche for him. Maybe the space shuttle or something…something huge that only Superman can do…while he's doing that the camera pulls back and we see we were watching the event unfold on a monitor. We continue to pull back…over the shoulder of a familiar bat-shaped shadow watching the monitor.

You mean the first thing in the movie or first time as Batman?

We've already been told Batman has been doing this for some time, so that wouldn't really make sense.

Man of Steel is a nickname for Superman the world knows. People who don't read comics know that Superman's nickname is the Man of Steel.

I just don't see why after the title Man of Steel was used that they need to go back to having Superman and Batman's name in the title. I also don't see how anyone could say World's Finest is a "silly" title.
and that is the problem because you are only thinking of posters…there are many more ways of marketing the movie…there were quite a few signs around Hollywood that were just this:

They need to focus the difference between both cities... hope they shoot some gothic buildings from Europe, I don't know Central Europe?

this scene could be great on screen but of course with the movie style

In the DP newspaper with "More powerful than a locomotive" would be a pretty great moment IMO

Yeah I agree on a train also or maybe a space station ala Superman Unchained but would be awesome if he had a difficult time and almost impossible to do it and then at the middle he remembers how he was saving some casualties from the WE and having a difficult time on the ones he couldn't save adding drama to the scene... But I think they will connect both scenes ala TDK showing Superman saving some casualties from the WE and the way doesn't matter if its flashback or showing it at the beginning of the movie..

Exactly. The space station is a great idea, but I'd rather they save it for the Watchtower in JL.

Superman saving anyone from any situation is cliche at this point. It's hard to be totally original with 75 years of material to draw from. But I agree, your opening sequence idea is great.

I was thinking about this yesterday on how I would start this film and almost every idea I had was already done…either by Superman or Marvel. I was thinking of even having him save victims of a massacre but we saw something like that in Iron Man.
