Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Better than Batman vs Superman, but what is this, a court case? Warner Bros. has also released an official press announcement about the film; there’s not really any new information, but it refers to Wonder Woman as one of the “stars,” not just a supporting character, so that’s cool.
There’s also a brand-new website, batmanvsupermandawnofjustice.com, which at the time the press release was sent out still said “Amazon Linux AMI Test Page.” I don’t know why, but that’s hilarious to me. I know it’s a fun joke that WB can’t get their stuff together, but dang.
