Does the fact that he doesn't really become "John Carter of Mars" until the end of the movie really mean that the movie can't be called that? The end is still part of the movie, after all. I think the "of Mars" title would have worked just fine.
Perhaps John Carter of Jasoom is more accurate until he receives the name "Dotar Sojat."
