Batman V Superman gets a title

Yes, that actually does mean Batman versus Superman, but putting in a V instead of versus is far more hip, yo. I'm sure that's the marketing people's story at Warner Bros. and they are sticking to it.

But the upcoming superhero mashup and Man of Steel sequel Batman V Superman has indeed been given an official title. And the words Batman and Superman and the letter V are in it.

The flick is actually called Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Clearly, this is the first push in the DC Comics equivalent of the Marvel Phase One films, culminating in a  Justice League movie. I'm all for it, but they are a little late to the party. I dug Man of Steel a lot, but Marvel's already done it, and probably done it better.

Still, my words could soon be eaten, and that'd make me happy too. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman. It opens May 6, 2016.
