Is WB's MAN OF STEEL Sequel Titled, BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN?

In 2002, Warner Bros. registered a domain name, batmanvssupermanmovie.com, and in the past year the website has been updated. Could this be the title of their upcoming film, featuring Superman (Henry Cavill) and Batman?

Here is a link to the website in question. batmanvssupermanmovie.com. A simple check on whois.net verifies that the website was created by Warner Bros. in 2002, and was updated on November 8, 2012. And comicbook.com has pointed out that Goyer mentions this as a possible title for the film during the Superman 75th Anniversary Comic-Con panel.
During the Superman 75th Anniversary panel, Man Of Steel writer David S. Goyer said, “So over in Hall H at the Warner Bros.–I guess most people know now–at the end of the Warner Bros. panel, Zack came out and he brought Henry Lennix, who plays General Swanwick in Man of Steel and we–actually, Henry read a bit from [The Dark Knight Returns] and so the next film we’re making, we’re already in pre-production, comes out in summer of 2015 and it’s–we’re actually not sure whether the title is Superman vs. Batman or Batman vs. Superman but yes, it’s–that rematch, that combination, the two guys onscreen and that’s happening.”

David S. Goyer only gave two examples of what the title could be, so we did a little research, figuring that Warner Bros. would likely have registered the domain name that they would want to use for the title. It turns out that Warner Bros. owns both SupermanVsBatman.com and BatmanVsSuperman.com, which could be used to protect comic book titles as well as movie titles. However, when we added movie to the end, we found out that Warner Bros. had only registered BatmanVsSupermanMovie.com but not SupermanVsBatmanMovie.com.

there's no "rise or fall or revenge or return or dark or rise"? bullshit

I hope not. I really don't think Batman should be able challenge Superman physically.

I think they should work together, and they can bicker along the lines. Just don't have Batman kick Superman ass.

Anyways looking forward to this. It should be really awesome.

ALegendaryPanda - 7/22/2013, 4:06 PM
So, that's not really the name is it?
LucasMend - 7/22/2013, 4:10 PM
Most financial success choice
TayDee - 7/22/2013, 4:10 PM
It'll be a mistake if this is the title or if this is how this film is going to be. This should be a sequel mainly about Superman, and featuring Batman. I don't want to see them [frick]ing up Metropolis throughout the whole film. But sadly, that's probably the thing everyone wants to see besides a good story.
RED79 - 7/22/2013, 4:10 PM
I hate the thought of it being called batman vs super man it should be man of steel with sub title after all it is a man of steel sequel.
Man Of Steel
Rise of The Batman
or something like that would be EPIC and would catch the attention of movie goers DO IT WB DO IT!!!!!!!!
sameoldthing - 7/22/2013, 4:12 PM
I can see a small skirmish between them then a team up.
If entire film is set up for them to fight..WTF?
Praetorian - 7/22/2013, 4:14 PM
Still call it Man of Tomorrow and then call the third one The Superman
sanyaya - 7/22/2013, 4:17 PM

marvel72 - 7/22/2013, 4:17 PM

Jollem - 7/22/2013, 4:17 PM
a more apt title would be...

Man of Steel 2: Hold On To Your Butts



sanyaya - 7/22/2013, 4:19 PM
DAVID S GOYER WRITING THE FILM DONT FORGET YOU GUYS
JGAR - 7/22/2013, 4:19 PM

THE
MAN
OF
STEEL
RETURNS
youknowmyname - 7/22/2013, 4:31 PM
Brave and the Bold?

Then at least, you have it's very own franchise where you can use an established hero to introduce a new one.
MexicanSuperman - 7/22/2013, 4:31 PM
Man Of Steel: The World's Finest. I hope Batman's role is as big as Black Widow or War Machine in Ironman 2.
DukeAcureds - 7/22/2013, 4:34 PM
Who knows what they'll end up naming it?
My guess is Arthur.
DukeAcureds - 7/22/2013, 4:34 PM
The recently born Prince of England, that is. And I'm calling it, righ here: He'll have ginger hair.
Deadpoolwithcomicsans - 7/22/2013, 4:39 PM
@Duke

So he'll have no soul?
superherofan21 - 7/22/2013, 4:43 PM
How about just "Batman/Superman: World's Finest"?
What's wrong with that?
DukeAcureds - 7/22/2013, 4:44 PM
Exactly.
DukeAcureds - 7/22/2013, 4:45 PM
Also, the father, Prince William is not ginger, but his brother Prince Harry is. Just saying.
Deadpoolwithcomicsans - 7/22/2013, 4:52 PM
Back on topic,

Superman doesn't stand a chance if this is a versus movie.

Batman has the balls to punch a shark square in the jaw



Superman doesn't stand a chance against Batman and his Bat-balls of steel.
whoa123 - 7/22/2013, 4:59 PM
I really think Bats will be the villain in this movie. That's gonna be awesome.
TheAbomination - 7/22/2013, 5:06 PM
Call it Man of Steel: World's Finest or GTFO.
TheRaven20 - 7/22/2013, 5:06 PM
Batman and Superman: World's Finest
TheAbomination - 7/22/2013, 5:07 PM
Actually, World's Finest by itself might be enough. Batman vs. Superman is such a shitty, gimmick-y title.
DukeAcureds - 7/22/2013, 5:07 PM
Now that's what I call Anti-Shark-Bat-Repellent! Batman done fvcked Jaws in the face!
Darkknight23 - 7/22/2013, 5:08 PM
they should call it Batman/Superman v. Ultron. Then they would be on par with marvel...maybe
TheFox - 7/22/2013, 5:08 PM
If they HAVE to name it one of those, they'd BETTER name it "Superman vs. Batman". It's a MAN OF STEEL SEQUEL, remember? Why would you put the other guy's name first?

F%$# it, this idea is sounding worse and worse all the time. Multimillion-dollar blockbuster or not, I'm really afraid this movie is going to blow...

@Deadpool

Hahahahahaha ... bravo. bravo.
iZinDiaN - 7/22/2013, 5:09 PM
Man of Steel - Rise of the Batman sounds [frick]ing epic...
Maculis - 7/22/2013, 5:10 PM
haven't we seen this from WB/DC before with Justice League news? When they start filming, i'll believe it. Until then, this is just gossip.
DanteSparda - 7/22/2013, 5:10 PM
No matter the full name Batman's name comes first.
Reasonnnn - 7/22/2013, 5:10 PM
Batman vs Superman vs Lex Luthor.

TRIPLE THREAT MATCH LETS [frick]ING GO
Optimus83 - 7/22/2013, 5:10 PM
World's Finest is Better Title for a Movie Blockbuster. ...
