Kevin Smith spoke about BvS during his podcast and, after stating his opinion about the official title, said where Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are going with this sequel. Of course, these are not official statements of WB/DC, and yet, Kevin Smith is a good friend of Ben Affleck (who will play Batman in the movie) and was pretty right when talking about the new Batsuit back in the day.
Here is what he said about the title:
“It’s a bit of a mouthful. And also, I don’t know why Batman V. Superman. Why not just throw the “s” in there? Or spell it or something like that. Or honestly, every comic book fan on the planet, who is a DC comic book fan, I think we all wanted to see Batman/Superman: World’s Finest.”
And this is what he said about the film in general:
“But look, they’re obviously beginning something, and there’s a stretch of these flick, and so this is the beginning of the Justice League, as we all suspected as they were announcing that cast. We were like, ‘This is the beginning of a Justice League movie.’ From what I understand now, it’s no longer like, ‘This is Superman 2.’ They’re not doing these things. They’re doing like, ‘Here’s Man of Steel. Here’s Batman/Superman: Dawn of Justice.’ The next one is not like a sequel to one of the characters. They’re just going to keep building their universe for about five or six movies. But all of them…it’s supposed to tell one massive story, which is all Justice League oriented".
What do you think about the idea of having five or six movies all telling and contributing to a Justice League oriented story? Do you agree with Smith's idea about the title of the film? Post your thoughts below.
