I don't know... for those into fanfiction, the slash in Superman/Batman could give some people the wrong idea about the movie...

Joking, but I don't see a problem with using "World's Finest". It's no more risky than calling a moving 'Man of Steel' or 'The Dark Knight'. Some people might not have known what those movies were until seeing the trailer with Superman or Batman in it. They're probably more recognizable than WF, but you'd be surprised how oblivious some people are. Just make sure that the marketing materials have the symbols or images of the characters and everything will be fine.

I think the difference is that "Dark Knight" and "Man of Steel" are somewhat evocative and sound potentially exciting.

"World's Finest" is rather bland, and contextually meaningless.

Yeah. The difference is that a lot of people find the phrase "World's Finest" to be really corny, whereas I don't anyone thought that with "The Dark Knight" or "Man of Steel".

World's Finest sounds like a brand and not a movie title. I see the phrase all over food products.

If HALF the fanboy community thinks World's Finest is a cheesy name, imagine how the ga would react.

Batman/Superman or Batman vs Superman aren't very creative but they're better than World's Finest

It's context is obvious. It's right there in the title.

The context is...that it's the best?

The title says nothing else.

For all its supposed cheesiness/blandness as a title, "World's Finest" is having no problem winning this poll.

I don't see how WF is confusing, bland, or in any way undesirable. Cheesy, maybe, but certainly no cheesier than "Man of Steel" or "The Dark Knight".

^ It's just nitpicking fanboys being nitpicking fanboys, IMO. I agree that the "WF" title is no worse than TDK or MOS.

Most of the arguments against it are really strange. I've seen a lot of talk about audience confusion, which is confusing in and of itself. They're going to market the holy hell out of this movie. Everyone will know that it'll be about Batman and Superman either teaming up or fighting each other and they'll be able to put the pieces together and realize what the title is implying.

^ Exactly. If WB could market Batman 89' by mainly just showing off the Batsymbol, its not gonna be rocket science marketing this movie and calling it "World's Finest".

Exactly. World's Finest is absolutely evocative of the premise.

Batman and Superman = World's finest.

It really is that simple.
