Over the weekend, rumors that the title for Zack Snyder’s Justice League: Part One would be changed to Justice League: United, Justice League: Gods Among Us (which is clearly an homage to a very popular video game and series of comics titled Injustice: Gods Among Us), Justice League: Angels and Demons (would Robert Langdon have joined the team? Just kidding), or Justice League: Gods Among Men started making the rounds thanks to a report over at Heroic Hollywood.
The site cautioned fans to take the story with the appropriate dose of salt, but it made its way up to Geoff Johns, the new co-head of Warner Bros.' DC Films division, who decided to set the record straight.
Johns took to Twitter over the weekend to dispel the rumor and reveal the official title, saying that “The Justice League movie is called 'Justice League'”.
Um. Yeah. Pretty straightforward, I guess. Looks like Warner Bros. and DC have chosen to keep the title as simple as possible for the Justice League's first movie, just as Marvel did with The Avengers.
Which is kinda all right I suppose, but I would have been totally partial to Justice League: Gods Among Us because of the awesomeness of that video game. How about you? Did you guys prefer the other titles over the simple Justice League?
Filming on the superhero movie is currently underway in England and stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jeremy Irons, Amy Adams, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Ezra Miller and J.K. Simmons.
Justice League is slated for a Nov. 17, 2017, release.
