Kevin Smith has been a huge supporter of Warner Bros. Batman Vs. Superman film, which is now officially titled Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Smith was the first to see and rave about Ben Affleck’s Batsuit, and he was right on target with how impressive the new Batsuit was. So what did Smith think of Warner Bros. titling the movie Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice? We’ve transcribed his comments from a recent Hollywood Babble-On podcast below.
“It’s a bit of a mouthful. And also, I don’t know why Batman V. Superman. Why not just throw the “s” in there? Or spell it or something like that,” said Smith. “Or honestly, every comic book fan on the planet, who is a DC comic book fan, I think we all wanted to see Batman/Superman: World’s Finest.”
“But look, they’re obviously beginning something, and there’s a stretch of these flick,” continued Smith. “And so this is the beginning of the Justice League, as we all suspected as they were announcing that cast. We were like, ‘This is the beginning of a Justice League movie.’ From what I understand now, it’s no longer like, ‘This is Superman 2.’ They’re not doing these things. They’re doing like, ‘Here’s Man of Steel. Here’s Batman/Superman: Dawn of Justice.’ The next one is not like a sequel to one of the characters. They’re just going to keep building their universe for about five or six movies.”
“But all of them…it’s supposed to tell one massive story, which is all Justice League oriented,” added Smith.
