Today, Warner Bros. announced that director Zack Snyder’s follow-up to Man of Steel, which many have been calling Batman vs. Superman, has begun filming Detroit. More exciting, however, is the announcement’s inclusion of the film’s final title, as well as the logo. The movie is officially named Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The first part is slightly different from its prior title, while the subtitle is clearly a reference to Justice League, which is confirmed to be the third installment in the DC Cinematic Universe. Check out the logo and production press release below. Plus, the movie’s website is now live. You can check that out by clicking here. Stay tuned for more news on Batman v.
