The WB has announced that the untitled Man of Steel sequel will officially be named Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and has begun principal photography this morning. The WB picked the title after ignoring several outstanding suggestions by the Outhouse including "Man of Steel: I Like My Knight How I Like My Women", "Man of Steel: Brokebat Mountain", "Man of Steel: Let's Fuck Up Detroit For Reals", "Man of Steel: With 45% Less Superheroes Than X-Men: Days of Future Past" and "Man of Steel: No, We Really Don't Know What We're Doing, But Thank You For Asking".
The movie will be directed by Zack "Sloooooooooooooooooooooooooow Mooooooooooooooooootion" Snyder with the script written by David "Only Virgins Know Who Superheroes Are" Goyer. While plot details are limited, the title suggests the movie will focus on a new character named Dawn, a waitress working at a diner in small town Justice, Idaho, who has her life changed when Superman trashes her city, kills her entire family and dog, and then refuses to tip her after eating the diner's last piece of apple pie. The title also sets up a clear opening to name a future movie "Twilight of the Superheroes", which is a well known Alan Moore comic that never saw publication. According to a report by Variety, filming locations will include Detroit, Illinois, Africa and the South Pacific.
Man of Steel: Dawn of Justice is set to debut on May 6, 2016, the same day as Captain America: We Don't Need a Lousy Subtitle is set to air.
