I came up with most of those after googling "longest movie titles." There are some REALLY weird ones out there... even more than those ones.

He's probably alive again in a finished comic, as you typed that.

There's Andy Kubert's elseworlds miniseries and Grant's Multiversity miniseries (also elseworlds) that will star and feature Damian, respectively.

You mean Robin is dead in the trilogy? Well, no. He hadn't even started.

They should call it whatever the screenplay demands to be called. The whole thing of putting a hero's name or group's name to the title is a bit stupid in my eyes... Everyone will know that it's a Batman/Superman film from when they take a look at the poster or the trailer. It worked for 50 years in Bond I can't see why it wont work for superheroes.

A title should not be complicated. It should not be some super long sentence(nor a short one). It should be a statement.

I disagree with the idea that having the heroes name is silly. It doesn't really work for Bond because people who haven't watched the Bond films are left confused. But it also has the 007 symbol in some cases for aid. But if there is no poster and just text, there are many people who don't know it's a Bond film.

The title shouldn't be complicated. I should understand what the film is about. Worlds Finest and all that just tells me nothing.

I'm serious here... I think "Earth's Greatest Heroes" (with the Batman and Superman logos behind it) would be perfect. I would keep with the recent DC trend of not using the names of the main characters in the title, yet it's clear who they are talking about.

I guess you could do the same thing with "World's Finest," but I still think that makes them sound like Team America: World Police.

If it's a MOS sequel, it should be The Man of Tommorow.

But if it's a team up film: World's Finest.

Superman/Batman

Quick and to the point. While I do like World's Finest the GA won't know what it is simply by the title.

Then make it a subtitle.

Like Captain America: The First Avenger.

Superman/Batman: The World's Finest.

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.
Or...it could be viewed as inherent meaning within the context of the film. Guess it depends on how literal you need things to be.

SUPERMAN
THE WORLDS FINEST

Is what I would call it. It is clearly a Superman sequel, but also hints at Batman, but also directly states what Superman is going to become in the film.

I'm a believer in World's Finest. That's what a Batman/Superman teamup is to me... I don't think you really run the risk that the general audience will be turned off; there was a time when there was concern over having a Batman movie without "Batman" in the title and that worked out okay.
