In recent weeks, comic book fans have been raving (both good and bad ravings) over the new Batman vs. Superman movie, and with good reason. We got our first look at Ben Affleck's new Batsuit and Batmobile:
I don't know about you guys, but I love this look for him. Its classic. In addition to this exciting inside look, Batman v. Superman has just gotten a new title, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and a new logo to go with it:
In all the excitement about this new news, people are missing something key about this (POTENTIAL SPOILER WARNING FROM THIS POINT ON). DC is basically explaining their process for assembling their Justice League for the next movie. Let's break the title down, shall we?
Batman v. Superman: our 2 main characters of the movie
DAWN: the start of something new
JUSTICE: this one is a bit trickier to pick up on, but it is definitely an allusion to the Justice League (Justice being the key word here)
So, based on the casting we've gotten so far, we're going to have at least four heroes in the midst of the movie that solely focuses on Batman and Superman. In addition to them, we will also be seeing Gal Gadot play Wonder Woman and Ray Fisher play Cyborg. We have no idea how big of a role these other two will play in this movie, however.
This is where the speculation comes in: I think that in the aftermath of the battle with Lex Luthor, Batman and Superman decide that the world is too greatly threatened, and they need to put a team together to protect it. They find Wonder Woman and Cyborg (so basically they come in at the end) and get them in on the idea of a team.
People have been assuming that the Justice League movie will be similar to The Avengers in the sense that the team won't be truly assembled until the final battle. However, I think that Dawn of Justice will end with the beginning of the formation of the Justice League, and the [Justice League](movie:401267) movie will start straight off with the team already (at least mostly) together.
What do you guys think? Does this theory suit you? Do you have any differing ideas? Let me know below!
