Batman-Superman Movie Will Be Titled 'Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice'

Posted: Updated:

The Batman-Superman crossover film will officially be titled “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice." Production on the Zack Snyder-directed movie begins today, May 21, in Detroit.

The "Man of Steel" Twitter account confirmed the news and tweeted a logo for the movie that acts as a hybrid of the Batman and Superman emblems.

Twitter erupted with reactions to the title, with many speculating that the title indicates a prelude to the "Justice League" movie that Warner Bros. is expecting to release in 2018.

The news comes on the heels of the movie's first photo -- which features a dour-looking Ben Affleck donning the Batsuit -- prompting the Sad Batman meme to explode across the Internet.

“Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" arrives in theaters May 6, 2015.
