Batman V. Superman Rumor Suggests Film Could Be Split Into Two Parts

Stop us if you've heard this one before, but another major Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice rumor has hit the Internet.

According to a leaked images, Batman V. Superman might split into two separate films. The rumor comes from a snapshot, taken from what is supposedly Batman V. Superman’s teaser trailer. The image states that Batman V. Superman’s first half would be titled “Enter The Knight,” and would land in theaters this October 23rd, while the second half would keep the “Dawn of Justice” surname and March 2016 release date.

Of course, this is the Internet.  Anyone with a computer could have created and distributed the image. But before writing the rumor off completely, it is worth noting that Dawn of Justice is said to be a massive film, with more than 10 month’s worth of shooting behind it. And as Aint It Cool News notes, Warner Bros. is prioritizing Batman’s introduction to the their DC Cinematic Universe. “Enter The Knight” would facilitate that, saving the epic clash with Superman in "Dawn of Justice." But if this rumor is true, that means Warner Bros. would have to finish post production efforts (or a major portion of them) five months ahead of the film's release date.

With the official teaser trailer to Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice heavily rumored to be attached to Jupiter Ascending on February 6th, official confirmation-or—denial—will come soon.

  1. That would be DOPE...

    Also, somehow, "Enter the Knight" makes the "Dawn of Justice" subtitle seem much better.

  2. Well... this is just... no... this sucks, but I guess on the other hand, if they already finished shooting principle photography on it, it's going to be another almost year and a half before it's out? People will completely forget about it by then, I mean we've been watching this thing unfold for what? Almost a year already. So yeah, split it in half, make it something LESS than a 3 hour "ugh my butt is flat, do they do intermissions anymore?" marathon and just do a 90 minute movie they can finish now and then release the next part - which might be far more SFX heavy and at least get feedback on how Part 1 went so they can retool things a bit if they have to. 

    I just hope it's far less "heavy" than Man of Steel or the Nolan-Batman movies - not that I want Batman and Robin like cheese/camp fests but I would like a bit more wit and humor and fun. That's why I love the Marvel movies - you can have heavy action and a rather dark storyline but there's enough entertainment value and humor to keep it from feeling like a gut punch. I know when i walked out of Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises, even Man of Steel, I felt like I needed to go back and watch a comedy to get out of the funk

  3. WBs internet scouts haven't pulled it down yet so I take it as a fake.

  4. No, according to this the first part would be 10/23/2015 - in other words, THIS year. And the second half would come out on the original release date.

    As far as the tone, keep it. Marvel has their kiddie stuff. Let's make some shit matter, here. I mean, y'know, for aliens and robots and stuff...

  5. This movie is going to be sooooo EPIC and will win lots of awards.
