The official Twitter account for the Batman versus Superman film tweeted a picture yesterday revealing the official title for the new DC Comic film. To be titled “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, the film release is set for May 6th, 2016. Many media sources have taken the title as a nod to the films position as a prequel to a future Justice League film. This also falls in line with the many other roles that have been cast in the film including Gal Gadot as Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and Ray Fisher as Victor Stone (Cyborg).
Director Zack Snyder has been teasing information about the upcoming film, specifically about Ben Afleck’s role as Bruce Wayne (Batman). He revealed a rear shot of the films version of the Batmobile, and subsequently revealed both the front of the Batmobile alongside Afleck’s Batsuit. Reaction to these reveals have been tense among fan communities as many are uncertain of Afleck’s ability to portray the Dark Knight as well as the influx of characters into the Man of Steel sequel.
