Such is the narrative of Zack Snyder and David Goyer‘s upcoming Batman-Superman movie, the possible title of World’s Finest just won’t cut it. Warner Bros. have been looking at options, though, and it seems from Fusible’s detective work, they’ve been registering some possibilities.
And they are, to the very last, dreadful.
They all seem to be subtitles for Man of Steel. So, each of the following would run after the main title like Man of Steel: Rise of the Desolation Of Zod or whatever.
- Battle the Knight
- Beyond Darkness
- Black of Knight
- Man of Steel Darkness Falls
- Knight Falls
- Shadow of the Night
- The Blackest Hour
- The Darkness Within
And yes, Shadow of the Night, no K, is how Fusible list the title.
At least we can infer that Batman will be having a really, really crappy day in this storyline. I guess Sunshine Superman will come along and lift his spirits by the third act, though. They’ll have some miserable bald industrialist to gang up on.
I’m sure we can put our heads together and come up with a better title for this film than any of these alternatives. I’ll start the bidding with Super Budz 4Eva.
