Ha I'd laugh if they marketed it like a UFC fight, with all the promo material featuring a staredown between Bats and Supes.

I don't think it's silly. IF it turns out to be a true sequel to Man of Steel SUPERMAN should come before Batman. IF it's NOT a sequel to Man of Steel and just a semi-follow up then I'd be all for "World's Finest". But I'm about 99% certain this is a sequel to Man of Steel so therefore SUPERMAN should come before Batman....plain and simple. If this were a sequel to a Batman movie I would expect Batman to come before Superman. It's not silly at all

Halle Berry could be a damn fine Catwoman. That's part of the tragedy of "Catwoman" the movie.

I just want to know how you relate 'World's Finest' into the film itself. What is it suppose to mean? Superman isn't exactly going to be loved by everyone especially after MoS, nor is Batman and if anything might be portrayed more of an antagonist, this is where the whole 'World's Finest' thing falls flat in that it doesn't really mean anything.
Not true. "World's Finest” could apply to Superman becoming the Superman we know, striving to be the best man in the world and dealing with those inherent expectations, the emergence of the world's finest citizens/people, in terms of Batman and other heroes, and to Luthor's goals and ego. It could also refer to Metropolis and Gotham themselves, The Daily Planet, the development of technology (S.T.A.R Labs and Lexcorp?), any number of things.

Those are fine on the whole, but I think "The World's Greatest Detective" is far too clumsy, especially as a suffix.

I'm sorry, but it sounds like an awfully contrived way to justify an extremely weak title. And after checking World's Finest was the name of the Comic, not the title given to Batman and Superman as a team, so that further dilutes any perceived meaning and relevance.

A title I always wanted to see for a Superman film was 'The Last Son', I could actually see that being used for both Clark and Bruce as Bruce Wayne is also in effect the last of his family.

I hated that kid even more than I hated "Annie" in The Phantom Menace.

That's a LOT of hate.

I think his hair looks terrible. Is it just me or does it seem like every kid in movies that is around that age ALWAYS has an awful hairstyle?
