Leave it up to Comic Book Men creator Kevin Smith to share more details and theories on the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film, which he’s been doing since bestie Ben Affleck was casted as the Dark Knight. During his Hollywood Bubble-On podcast, the hardcore geek and Clerks director voiced his opinion on the long title and what he feels the fans really “wanted to see.”:

“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.”

He then went on to explain where the series looks to be going and how Batman v Superman is going to be setup:

“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 well as suspected as they were announcing the 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.”

Still feel a little meh about the project? Guess that makes two of us. In any case, feel free to voice your opinion with us.
