Batman v Superman: It's All We Got
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.
Batman & Superman, "World's Finest"
You know, irony.
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.
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. )
Why have a title at all, just put up the logo and get on with it!
Taylalala, love your avatar! Who is that?
Taylor Swift. The \S/ stands for Swift! ETA: Or Swiftie
I have to add Taylor may be 23 but she could be a great Supergirl/Kara.
Of course she could be. Kara doesn't have to be a ten.
Is she actually wearing the outfit, or is that photoshopped on Helen Slater's body?
Taylor Swift looks pretty much exactly the way I've always pictured Supergirl.
Speaking of Supergirl, it's a shame it looks like the new movie won't be following through on that story at all. There was the open pod in MOS, and Goyer's story for the prequel comic that heavily involved her, which makes me think they were originally planning to do something with the character in a sequel.
But with all the Batman and JL stuff going on it's likely there just isn't any room for her anymore. Bummer.
BvS: DoJ. So how are we gonna say this? "Buvus Dodge"?
Shut up Beavis, don't make me kick your ass.
Woohoo. A movie about Dawn. I thought she was the least developed character in Buffy the Vampire Slayer
At least you know enough to put a space after the colon, so you don't look like you're inexplicably happy about the word "Dawn"....
Separate names with a comma.
