    For the last year or so I've been thinking that they're moving ahead too quickly with this Justice League business but in a way it makes sense. If an alien like Superman did show up, I imagine that things would change pretty quickly and people like Batman would start coming out of the woodwork almost immediately. I still don't like the title though and hope that Superman and everything they set up in Man of Steel isn't sidelined too much.

    This needs to happen, if only because seeing V vs. Batman would be awesome. :hugegrin:

    The title is stupider than I expected, but its not a huge deal. In the long run, it could be called "Please Come see this Prequel to Justice League" and it won't effect whether the movie is good or not.

    As for the suit, it's batman. I want him to have an awesome, superhero looking suit. Realism can be ok, but I'm sitting down to watch a movie about a guy who dresses as a bat/flies/uses an alien power ring, etc. "Realism" is not something I consider a priority, and it can sometimes really pull down a superhero movie (like Nolan's Batman movies). Marvel knows when to let their movies just be fun, and throw realism out the window when the story/characters don't need it. DC movies need to lighten up (in more way than one), and I'm glad Affleck's suit looks like it would fit into a comic fairly well.

    I was thinking the other day that I'm glad he didn't get the part. Now he's free to play the Shadow. He'd be perfect for that.

    That bat logo was unveiled last year. I wonder if they had a suit in mind at that point or if they decided to incorporate the logo into a suit they designed later.

    And one thing that impresses me about that poster is how the 'v' in the title lines up perfectly with the 'of' in the subtitle.

    I kinda see what they're doing, with "dawn" out of dark(knight)ness, but....

    I don't mind the "Dawn of Justice" bit (this has obviously become more than a simple Man of Steel sequel), but the "v" in "Batman v Superman" annoys me more than it should. I've never liked that abbreviation of the word "versus" anyway; I would have preferred the more common "vs." But meh, whatever.

    I like the title. Seriously dislike the logo.

    I like the title and the logo. I'm cautiously optimistic about the movie.

    Analysis of the title from Mark Hughes at Forbes:

    The reality is: feel what you will about the title, it's not the thing that will stop someone from seeing the film.

    I agree with this analysis. It's the same conclusion I came to when I saw the title.

    It sounds better than "Superman versus Batman."

    That's the actual answer.

    Man of Steel: Dawn of Justice would have been marginally better for all the reasons you just stated but I would have greatly preferred it over Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. I get the title, but it is just clunky as hell.

    Well as far as tittles go at least it isn't using one that's the name of a shitty comic event story :)

    Makes it sound legal. Two hours of Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent's lawyers battling over visitation rights and property.

    This is some deep analysis. I bet he went to college.

    And if it were a legal case, in the UK anyway, the proceedings would be pronounced 'Batman and Superman.' The v or vs should never be pronounced as such in British courts, always as 'and.'
