It seems like the upcoming Batman/Superman movie might not actually be called Batman vs. Superman after all. Why everyone thought that to begin with, I have no idea. I mean, it’s not the most creative title I’ve ever heard, but I guess it’s pretty to the point. But it doesn’t really matter how good or bad that title is, because it may already be a moot point. Screencrush is reporting that Warner Bros. has not-so-secretly registered numerous Man of Steel-related domain names via internet brand protection company MarkMonitor, and the choices may lead to the sequel’s real title.

Although it remains unclear exactly which one of these new names might be the current frontrunner, one thing is pretty clear: Warner Bros. is leaning heavily in favor of maintaining the Man of Steel branding in the new title.  Here are just a few of the possible titles, based on the domain names that were purchased:

Man of Steel: Battle the Knight
Man of Steel: Beyond Darkness
Man of Steel: Black of Knight
Man of Steel: Darkness Falls
Man of Steel: Knight Falls
Man of Steel: Shadow of the Night
Man of Steel: The Blackest Hour
Man of Steel: The Darkness Within

Hmmm….these are all corny as heck. I take back what I said about Batman vs. Superman being kind of boring. I’ll take boring over schlocky any day.

Of course, the purchase of all of these URLs doesn’t necessarily mean that Warner Bros. will be using any of these names, and Warner Bros. has made no announcement regarding the purchase. Currently, none of the domains are attached to any kind of web page.

Batman vs. Superman (or whatever it’s called) is scheduled to be released in 2015.

What do you think the title should be? Let us know in the comments!
