Warner Bros. Pictures now releases an official statement about the final and official title for the Man of Steel Sequel. Here is the official release.
BURBANK, CA, May 21, 2014 – Filming is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” the highly anticipated action adventure from director Zack Snyder, starring Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as BruceWayne/Batman.And to mark that everything is already official, Warner Bros. also launched the official website with the official Logo and Title treatment.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from “Man of Steel,” Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”is written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
Principal photography will take place on location at Michigan Motion Picture Studios and on location in and around Detroit, Michigan; Illinois; Africa; and the South Pacific.
If I would be given the chance to make changes on the title, I will only remove the "v" between Batman and Superman. Dawn of Justice may sound a bit off or cheesy to some, but in my opinion it is just fitting if this movie will serve as a prelude to Justice League film. Looking forward for new updates on this film. Set to open worldwide on May 6, 2016, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is to be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
