We’re all wondering what Man of Steel 2, otherwise knows as Superman vs. Batman on the web and Warner Brothers Cynically Adds Batman To Superman Movies here at Awesome Friday HQ, is actually going to be called. We can now add a whole much of fuel to the speculation fire as Warner Brothers has registered a boat load of terrible domains.
Here is the list thanks to Fussible:
- 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
They also registered versions of all of these without the “Man of Steel” at the start, though I’d expect them to keep that because they want to keep the movies tied together a little more closely.
But yeah, these are all pretty awful to me. Then again I’m not a fan of this whole mess so maybe I just can’t like them.
I get that they are wanting to stick with the Man of Steel branding, but Superman vs. Batman is what everyone is going to call this movie anyway so why not just call it that? Or why not just call it what they really want to call it: Man of Steel vs. The Dark Knight. That way they can bolster their new Superman brand while simultaneously cashing in on their most popular and profitable Batman brand.
Man of Steel 2: The Dark Knight Cash In is set for release in July 2015. I guess we’ll find out if it’s any good then.
