Ever since it was announced at Comic-Con this year in San Diego, fans have been debating what the title of the new Batman vs. Superman movie will be. Everyone has been referring to it as Batman vs. Superman but what we tend to forget is that the film is a sequel to Man of Steel and isn’t a brand new Batman movie.
So technically, we should still be calling it Man of Steel 2 but the Batman vs. Superman title just says so much more. But Warner Bros. has trademarked and registered a slew of new internet domain names which is leading many to believe that the title of the 2015 Zack Snyder film will not be the already accepted Batman vs. Superman.
In fact, the titles discovered harken back to the forgotten fact that this is Man of Steel 2 and not a Batman reboot. Fusible came across documentation noting that Warner Bros has registered eight new domains that could be possible titles for the upcoming film.
Based on the information from Fusible, these possible new titles for the movie are:
- Man of Steel: Black of Knight
- Man of Steel: The Darkness Within
- Man of Steel: The Blackest Knight
- Man of Steel: Knight Falls
- Man of Steel: Beyond Darkness
- Man of Steel: Battle The Knight
- Man of Steel: Darkness Falls
- Man of Steel: Shadow of the Night
These titles are a lot to chew on for fans, specifically the one that seems to reference the batman storyline Knightfall. None of the titles are even close to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns further suggesting the movie will have little to do with that particular storyline.
Still, these possible titles could be in the running for the film’s official title or they could be possible titles for a video game tie-in. It’s too early to tell but all we do know is that Warner Bros. has trademarked Nightwing and these eight domain names all int he span of a week.
It’s safe to say, big news is right around the corner.
