The Bros. Warner Register Domain Names For Possible Sequel Title

Kind of old, but here you go:

Did Warner Bros. Reveal Possible New Titles For Batman Vs. Superman?

Are you ready for Man of Steel: Black of Knight? Maybe Man of Steel: The Darkness Within? How about Man of Steel: Knight Falls or Man of Steel: Battle the Knight?

Because according to Fusible, these are domain names registered by Warner Bros. that could become titles for Zack Snyder’s Batman-Superman team-up/throw-down movie. The site says that the studio "secretly" registered these names through MarkMonitor. And the practice of registering domain names and titles has led to correct guesses and speculation about past superhero projects, including that time X-Men fans figured out that Fox was planning to adapt the popular Days of Future Past storyline into a feature-length film.

Why the hell wouldn’t Warner just go with Batman vs. Superman? It’s the movie that finally puts Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) in the same movie. Advertise it as such! Don’t get cute. Leave the subtitles for lesser franchises. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer? Not a problem. Batman-Superman doesn’t need it.

The studio also doesn’t have to brand this as a sequel to Man of Steel. Those words don’t have to be in the sequel’s title. We all understood that The Dark Knight was a follow up to Batman Begins. It didn’t have to be called Batman Begins: The Dark Knight. It’s part of the reason why I REALLY wish that Nolan called his third part The Caped Crusader or something wildly different, because recycling The Dark Knight for the title felt like pandering.

There’s one subtitle that I think Warner could use that would fire fans up. The Dark Knight Returns. It references the seminal Frank Miller graphic novel that pits an older Bruce Wayne against Superman. And it’s the story Snyder referenced from the stage of Hall H to announce this hot project.

This could all mean nothing. Maybe they are registering domain names for book, cartoon or video game that will tie in to the 2015 superhero thriller. But we’re tracking any and all new nuggets tied to Snyder’s pending blockbuster, and this makes for some interesting discussion, no? Weigh in. Let us know if you like these titles, or if you have better suggestions. We’d love to hear them. Warner might want to hear them, as well.

Well that really sucks. Hey! I've got a title! How about Superman/Batman Into Darkness? Ooops! Star Trek already got that one!

Words of wisdom. What exactly is wrong with simply WORLD'S FINEST? Oh, the masses don't know what that is, right? OK then, how about doing something like that Batman/Superman comic & call it:


SUPERMAN/BATMAN
                                                                              WORLD'S FINEST

Let World's Finest be the subtitle. It's not rocket science folks!

I don't buy the marquee argument. The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises are about Batman. His name is nowhere in those titles. Man of Steel is about Superman. His name is nowhere in that title. The Avengers names are nowhere in that title. Back in the 80's this might've been a problem but people are so familiar with superhero iconography now that a Superman/Batman symbol mash-up is all anybody would need in order to understand what the movie is about.

In fact, I'll go a step further and say that wide audiences are still made up of individual people... and individual people ENJOY feeling as though they "get the reference" without having it explained to them. That's part of why I think the Avengers hit such huge numbers. Wide audiences understood who the stars thereof would be without having to be told and felt like they were on "the inside" because of it.

If you knew who the Avengers were back in the 60's, you were a regular kid.

If you knew who the Avengers were back in the 80's, you were a comic book nerd.

If you knew who the Avengers were back in the 90's, you needed to move out of your mom's garage.

If you know who the Avengers are now, you're in lock-step with everyone else.

USE THAT!
