Batman Vs. Superman Title Confirmed And Cinematographer Revealed

Batman Vs. Superman MovieAs first reported by Comicbook.com, Man Of Steel writer David S. Goyer revealed at 2013 San Diego Comic-Con that the Man Of Steel follow-up would either be called Batman Vs. Superman or Superman Vs. Batman. After doing a little domain name research, Comicbook.com concluded that Batman Vs. Superman would be the most likely  title.

Ever since our report, there has been a lot of debate over the versus title. While some fans like the title, other fans have expressed it sounds too much like an Alien Vs. Predator or Freddy Vs. Jason gimmick title. Fanboy and director Kevin Smith has voiced support of versus title, pointing out that even his mother would want to go see a movie called Batman Vs. Superman.

Many have speculated that perhaps Goyer was only mentioning possible titles and that Warner Bros. might select some other title. However, an online resume by cinematographer Larry Fong appears to both confirm the Batman Vs. Superman title as well as revealing that Fong will be working on the movie. Larry Fong previously worked with director Zack Snyder on Sucker Punch, 300, and Watchmen. Given his previous work history with Snyder, Fong's resume should be considered a pretty reliable source, but it should be noted that no official announcement has been made by Warner Bros. in regards to the title or Fong's involvement with the film.

Batman Vs. Superman is scheduled to be released on July 17, 2015.
