Wake Up, It's Time for Justice

The upcoming DC film, which had originally been titled Batman v Superman, now has an official title and release image.  The film's new, official title is: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the official press release image can be seen below:

The title brings to mind several burning questions, first and foremost being: did Superman not fight for justice in Man of Steel?  Have we decided that he just wasn't justice-y enough?  I'm not sure when this decision was made, but okay then.  

The title is also a very clear allusion to DC's next rumored big film, their ensemble Justice League movie.  We right remember that Captain America: The First Avenger was the last phase one MCU film before The Avengers, and that comic book movies are not usually known for their subtly.

Interestingly enough, the Bat-Symbol we're seeing now is a lot less sleek than Bale's design; it actually looks a bit like the 2008 logo design for The Brave and the Bold.  This might mean that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a full 90 minute live action renactment of The Brave and the Bold episode "Battle of the Super-heroes!" but this wild speculation has yet to be confirmed.  Which is a shame, because it's one of the greatest episodes of anything probably ever.  I'm serious go Netflix that right now.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release in 2015.
