World's Finest wouldn't have worked given the story which we don't know but since we have Batman v Superman there, no.
What do you mean it wouldn't have worked given the story? Do you think that Batman and Superman are going to fight the ENTIRE movie? Do you really think this is a movie like Godzilla vs King Kong, that they are going at it the entire movie?

Especially when there's Lex Luthor in it?

It's going to start with Bats and Supes "fighting"--though, Supes should just snap Bats's neck, it worked well in the first movie--and then they are going to have a good reason to team up, they are going to fight the real bad guy, and then, "Hey, we should TOTALLY team up like ALL the time, and with some other people, we could even give ourselves a team name..." And black out.

If anything, Batman v Superman is misleading.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

^ It seems they are making Superman the "enemy" and then he might have to team up to take on the real threat.

But by all means call it "World's Finest".

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Speaking as a curmudgeonly old DC fan, I would have loved it if they had called it World's Finest...but that was never gonna happen. That title means nothing to a mainstream audience, and like it or not the studio HAS to open things up to a mainstream audience. If they just catered to us nerds, they'd go bankrupt and our current Golden Age Of Comic Book Movies would come to a grinding halt.

Did Avengers mean anything to mainstream audiences?

The Avengers Initiative had been mentioned and built up in multiple films, including the first Captain America film carrying the subtitle The First Avenger, so by the time The Avengers was released, yes, it did mean something to many people in the mainstream audience.

Given the Comic Con image/quote it was never gonna be "World's Finest". Sorry.

World's Finest just doesn't have the right ring to it as a movie with the kind of tone this one will have anyway.

Maybe

Batman & Superman, "World's Finest"

You know, irony.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I'm a longtime DC fan as well, but I can't say I ever found anything terribly compelling about the title World's Finest. It was just the name of the comic book to me, and I never really took it seriously as the official name of the Superman/Batman partnership.

So the fact this movie isn't using it doesn't bother me in the least.

Many assume the "Justice" here is the Justice League.
Nonsense; it obviously refers to Dawn, a Justice Department official filing a brief on the Batman v. Superman court case.


(not my joke, but had to pass it on. )
