After months of casting announcements, suit reveals, rumors and speculation, principle photography finally begins today in Detroit on Warner Bros’ Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs Superman. Well, that was the case until this morning, when Variety has confirmed that’s no longer the title of the upcoming superhero film.
According to reports, the new film will now be officially titled Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, pretty much summing up the most pressing question we’ve had about the film: is it really a Justice League movie in disguise?
With Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg all confirmed to be appearing, the pressing question now is how the film will sustain them all. In the end, they may not have equal screen-time, but this will certainly set the state for a Justice League movie that’s confirmed to be in development at the studio, with rumors currently putting release sometime around 2017/2018. Other rumors have speculated this film and the future Justice League film will shoot back-to-back, thus explaining the sudden release date push by the studio from 2015 to 2016.
The amazing thing is we now live in a world where Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Luke Skywalker and Han Solo all exist in real, production underway films. As nerds, how can we help to do anything but celebrate at that fact? You try not to smile realizing that in a time span of 12-months, a whole lotta awesomeness is going to be hitting theaters.
