Filming Begins on BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
Hunh. Who knew that this movie was going to be a courtroom drama?
Zack Snyder's untitled Batman vs. Superman film finally received a title this afternoon, the rather clunky Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In addition, the film's official logo was revealed, which can be seen above.
Batman v Superman was originally announced as a sequel to last year's Man of Steel featuring Batman, but quickly evolved into a prequel to the upcoming Justice League movie with the addition of Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman and Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg.
And look, there's an official press release...
