Some rumored titles for Zack Snyder’s Justice League recently popped up online, and a few of them sounded just a little bit silly. For a while now, the two-part superhero ensemble has been referred to as Justice League: Part One and Justice League: Part Two, though fans have wondered if Snyder and Warner Bros. might rename the two films, similar to what Marvel is planning for Avengers: Infinity War. That doesn’t appear to be the case, as DC’s Geoff Johns has revealed the actual Justice League title and…well, it’s nothing fancy.

Justice League #50, DC Comics

Listen, the last week of comics was a little overwhelming, so you could be forgiven if you missed out on a few of the details that slipped through the cracks. I mean, we were all so busy talking about other things that we sort of missed the fact that Justice League #50 wasn't just a lead-in to DC's big Rebirth event, it was also the finale of Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok's ten-part "Darkseid War" storyline.

So in case you missed it, we thought you might want to know that Darkseid is a baby now. A baby that you can use as a God-power lightning-gun by saying a magic word backwards.

In Wake of ‘Batman v Superman,’ Geoff Johns Named To Lead ‘DC Films’ Division At Warner Bros

batman-vs-superman-final-trailer-pic-1

Success is relative. A lot of movies would kill for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s box office grosses. $869 million worldwide and counting? That’s got to be a hit, right? Yes and no. That total’s short of the $1 billion worldwide that has become the new benchmark for mega blockbusters. In just 11 days of release, Captain America: Civil War’s already made almost $100 million more. Then there are the film’s tepid Rotten Tomatoes and CinemaScores. This is the movie that’s supposed to launch at least a half dozen other franchises. So while the results weren’t disastrous, they weren’t great either.

With DC Rebirth on the horizon, we’re looking back at the earlier Rebirth series to see where they succeeded and where they failed.
