Remember our post on “Batman Rising”? Well, it seems that Warner Bros. has finally bestowed a title upon its “Batman vs. Superman” movie. The upcoming ensemble superhero film, in which Zack Snyder (who did “Man of Steel”) will direct, will be called, “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice”.
About damn time!
Warner Bros. has been plotting a Justice League movie since before it revamped its Superman franchise with “Man of Steel,” and the success of that movie affirmed that it could proceed with several more movies based on DC comics after several stops and starts (see The Lantern, Green). From the sound of its subtitle, “Batman v. Superman” will also be a big piece of the setup to the Justice League film that Snyder has signed on to direct next. That film isn’t expected until 2017 or 2018, but Warner Bros. and DC Comics are clearly eager to stoke some anticipation in advance.
“Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” will see Henry Cavill reprise his role as Superman from Snyder’s “Man of Steel” and Ben Affleck filling the role of Batman – who we got a first look at in costume just last week:
A number of other heroes and villains are set to turn up in the film, including Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). Filming has already started for the movie, but it’ll be a long time yet before you can watch it: it’s set to open on 25th March 2016.
Director Zack Snyder has shared the first real, full, and legit picture of the new Batmobile. Mister Snyder himself called the new shot “a real picture” of the vehicle, in contrast to the apparently not as real shot of the Batmobile that was previously released above.

Does it or does it not look like a Batmobile on steroids? Suh-weet or not so suh-weet? Can’t wait for the movie or rather not watch the movie now? Let us know what you think in the comments.
Meanwhile, here’s a funny “Batman v. Superman” spoof before it was officially called, “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice”. Enjoy!
