WB Registers Possible BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Titles

The internet at large has been calling Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Man of Steel sequel “Batman vs. Superman” for simplicity and consistency’s sake, but Warner Bros. hasn’t officially confirmed a title for the highly-anticipated superhero movie. The studio could go in a different direction, and they’ve recently registered eight possible titles through the Internet brand protection company MarkMonitor. I don’t think I really care for any of them, but what do I know? Warner Bros. is clearly trying to work “Man of Steel,” “Dark,” and “Knight” into the title in some capacity, and it seems a bit forced. It’s also possible that none of these will be used. Sometimes studios make these registrations as a defense against those who would capitalize on a notable brand.

The officially untitled Man of Steel sequel opens July 17, 2015.

According to Fusible, Warner Bros has registered the following domains:

  • 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

For my money they might as well call it Superman plus Batman…you know, that really popular franchise that Christopher Nolan directed? Of course, that won’t fit very well on a poster. Do you like any of these? More importantly, can you explain why? Let us know in the comments section.
