I'm not saying that 6.5 billion people out 7 billion had no idea here. I'm just saying that a fair few probably didn't. Too a lot of people it's common knowledge but to some it really isnt.
Because the term Man of Steel has been so ingrained in the public conscious for years that it's kinda absurd to suggest many people wouldn't know where it came from. Had you said 'some' people that's a different story.

That actually could work. It's simple, yet effective. Foreshadowing the Justice League, yet referring to the possible film at hand. Slap the logos on the poster and you're done.

It is pretty cool sounding, but after what happened at the end of MoS and without exploring the ramifications of the decision to kill Zod, "Justice" gives off a Justice Lords vibe.

Shouldn't it be Men of Tomorrow? or something to better convey that this is a film about two men rather than one.

Maybe someone who's good at sleuthing can go and find out what domain names WB has bought/reserved for the movie. Maybe that will give us some insight as to what it could be called.

I really, really, reallllyyy hope they don't call this film Superman vs Batman (or Batman vs Superman).

In any of these sorts of films it implies that the film revolves around the 2 characters fighting with 1 of them emerging the clear winner & for me, I don't think that's a good idea. It also forces the audience to kinda pick a side, who they think will win. I don't like that either. I feel the goal of the film should be both of them perhaps not trusting the other completely, heck I will even take some form of fight between them if it can be done right.. however the story should be about them uniting to take on something else.

I'm almost sure that will be the case by the end of the film, however if that is the case then Superman vs Batman (or Batman vs Superman) is kind of a misleading title. I'd prefer World's Finest, Superman/Batman: Public Enemies or something to that effect.

I'd also like to know what this film is, is it going to be a Man of Steel sequel in which case you would assume Batman is an unknowing villian, a Batman reboot with a Superman cameo or is it a collaboration in which the focus is on both characters as a World's Finest or Public Enemies type story would be.

I am excited for what this could become, however this could also be a train wreck if it's not handled well.

The LAST thing I want to see is X VS Y, or World's Finest.



It would be fascinating if they actually just marketed it like that, with just the combined emblems, never actually giving it a name.

People would end up referring to it as something, probably the Superman and Batman movie.

People even still refer to Man of Steel as the Superman movie, or just Superman, etc.

The comic actually did this for a while, just using the emblems as the title on the cover.
Technically I think it had a title, it just wasn't used on the cover. I could see that working for this movie on posters, and trailers, just the emblems.

They could technically give it a title, but marketing it with just that image would be fantastic.

That may be the best idea so far. It doesn't really convey duality or choice in the same way as my idea of 'Truth/Justice', but it is concise and meaningful. I like it.

"Justice" just on it's own sounds incredibly bland to me.

"The World's Finest" is growing on me. I kind of like its throwback quality. Like "Man of Tomorrow", it 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.

Definitely. And it could refer to any other thing as far as the general audience is concerned. It could sound like a legal drama or almost like a revenge movie.

"The World's Finest" or just "World's Finest" is without a doubt my favorite choice at this point.

Looks good, sounds good and feels symbolic.

Both are growing on me. The cool thing about "The World's Finest" is in addition to everything you've said, it's also just a way of saying "the two greatest superheroes in the world", which works well for marketing purposes.
And yeah it has a throwback quality, but so does "The Amazing Spider-Man" and that movie is still a very modern take on the Spider-Man mythos.

I don't get what the title has too with the GA? Does anybody know anyone who'd see a film based on title alone?

They go on trailers, tv ads and at the very least posters. All of which will advertise SUPERMAN and BATMAN to death.

When you type batmanvssupermanmovie.com it leads you to wb's website. When you do the same with worldsfinest.com or worldsfinestmovie.com you get nothing. I think it'll be Batman vs Superman. Both batmanvssuperman.com and batmanvssupermanmovie.com are registered by wb. Supermanvsbatman.com redirects you to DC's website, and supermanvsbatmanmovie.com is unregistered. It's going to be Batman vs Superman

I really do think that Snyder made it perfectly clear that this is Superman's sequel and a sequel to Man of Steel. "We are making another Superman movie." The whole cast is returning. Fallout from MOS will continue. Questions will be answered.

With that said, I'd like for Superman to be in the title, atleast.

Superman: Worlds Finest

Man of Steel
Superman: Worlds Finest
Justice League
Man of Tomorrow

would be the the series of film titles I'd like to see showcasing Supes over the next several years....

I really want to see the title be Superman/Batman: World's Finest...that's a fitting title. Not Batman/Superman: World's Finest. If this is a true Man of Steel sequel then Superman needs to come first and foremost

First we have to determine if this is COMPLETELY separate from a Man of Steel sequel and it is literally a Batman/Superman film with characters on equal terms. If that is the case, we are pretty held down to options of the following: "World's Finest" "Batman & Superman" "Batman & Superman: World's Finest"
