    Snyder seriously thought anyone would allow him to name this film "Son of Suns and Knight of Nights"? Come on dude!

    Goes to Show that the man understands what poetic is as much as he knows how to be Subtle. XD

    Well…

    It’s clear from the interview that Snyder really disliked the studio imposed title. He even ridiculed it. So in a way, he was “seriously” suggesting that any number of alternatives titles (even the clumsy poetic ones) would have been better than “vs.”

    The one he suggested was not better, it's even worse.

    I think someone somewhere said should've used Superman/Batman: Public Enemies just like the comic.

    Snyder disagrees. :cwink:

    In the interview (which I’ve only seen in printed form), it seemed like Snyder just spitballed a suggestion. But he added “or something that’s a bit more poetic.” Lots of folks concentrating on the spitball and ignoring the “or something [else]” part.

    Back in the day, I defended the “Batman versus Superman” moniker. But for purely utilitarian and commercial reasons. It’s the first time Bats and Supers are together on the big screen. And they’re feuding. So — truth in advertising — you spell that out in the title. But it ain’t pretty.

    Since Batman V Superman is a prequel to Justice League, one may argue that this sub-forum belongs here (kind of)

    As more time goes on, I grow fonder of this movie and Snyder’s DCEU efforts. It’s still not my favorite stuff in the world, but I can definitely see the merits of the “Snyderverse”.

    BvS, in particular, is probably the most drastic turnaround in terms of my feelings on Snyder’s DCEU films. I went from heavily disliking it to actually liking it quite a bit for all the things it tried to do (successfully or otherwise).

    Battinson is still better than Batfleck, though. ;)
