The ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Movie May Stick With A ‘Man Of Steel’ Title

Batman Vs. Superman

Ever since it was announced at Comic-Con this past summer, quite a few people have been referring to the upcoming Zack-Snyder directed film featuring Henry Cavill and Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman as “Batman Vs. Superman.”

But the movie is still going to be a direct sequel to Man of Steel (Lex Luthor will be appearing, Snyder has confirmed) and judging from a list of domains recently registered by MarkMonitor, the company Warner Bros uses for its warnerbros.com domain and the registrar for the SupermanvsBatman.com domain, it could keep that title.

Here’s what’s been registered, according to Fusible:

Which can be translated more digestibly to some of these possibilities:

  • Man of Steel: Battle the Knight
  • Man of Steel: Beyond Darkness
  • Man of Steel: Black of Knight
  • Man of Steel: Darkness Falls
  • Man of Steel: Knight Falls
  • Man of Steel: Shadow of the Night
  • Man of Steel: The Blackest Hour
  • Man of Steel: The Darkness Within

So if you had any concerns that the movie might not be about darkness or have a ridiculous pun in the title, don’t you worry – this list is practically a buffet. Of course, these could all be plants to stimulate media coverage or names for tie-in or even standalone multimedia like video games, books and mobile apps. Whatever the case, Batman comic writers will be hard pressed to top something as bleak as “Shadow of the Night.”
