Well, the sequel to Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel now has an official name: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! Above is the official logo for the film that pretty much follows the template of what was shown at last year’s San Diego Comic Con. I’m still not hot on the idea of making the heroes sound like they’re at odds with each other, but it tells you who’s in it and will definitely put rears in seats in 2016. The subtitle also lets you know that this is leading into Justice League, much like Captain America: The First Avenger gave way to The Avengers. With this and the recent Batsuit reveal, it can’t be long until we get official looks at Superman and Wonder Woman.

UPDATE: Here’s press release posted by the Boy Who Loved Batman himself, producer Michael Uslan:

BURBANK, CA – Filming is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the highly anticipated action adventure from director Zack Snyder, starring Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman.
