No one knows the official title for the Batman vs. Superman movie yet, but some recently registered domain names might give us a hint. According to Fusible, Warner Bros. registered a bunch of possibilities that are all rather dark.

According to the latest domain registrations, possible titles include “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”, and “Man of Steel The Darknness Within”.

These names aren’t likely to sit well with those of us hoping for the name to remain simply Batman vs Superman or World’s Finest. On the plus side, there is no official confirmation that any of these domain names are in the running for the movie title itself.

No cities are destroyed and no aliens try to take over the planet in this showdown between Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy and Superman voice actor Tim Daly. It was for a skit on The Daly Show which is an effort by Tim’s son Sam who also appears in the video. If the Affleck/Cavill fight is even half as good, they’ll be lucky.

This artwork, commissioned by Zach Snyder for the charity We Can Be Heroes, shows Batman and Superman as the best of enemies. Snyder gave the artists who created the trio of images just Batman vs. Superman as a prompt and these are the results. The paintings debuted at the Man of Steel fan event where Snyder spoke a bit about the characters.

Whether they’re fighting or they become friends, or if they’re friends and they fight, that’s the fun of making movies and playing with this mythology. You get to take these icons and see how emotionally they fit together. I think that’s the most important thing and fun thing. And, of course, there will be some physical conflicts as well.

Sounds like a little tease about what we’ll see in the movie. Lex Luthor also came up during the event, with Kevin Smith mentioning how Lex calls Superman an alien all the time. Snyder neither confirmed nor denied Lex’s appearance, but did say, “Lex loves calling him an alien,” along with a little smirk. Could that be a smirk of confirmation? We’re hoping the answer is yes.

You can bid on the artwork on ebay with funds going to DC’s We Can Be Heroes campaign.

Do you know what bugs Stan Lee about Superman? It’s not that he’s boring, rather he doesn’t really get how Superman flies. Granted, a quick internet search will lead you to all kinds of information on Kryptonian gravity, but it seems that Stan doesn’t visit Wikipedia all that much.

Check out Stan’s rant after the break…

Comedian Pete Holmes, and his hilarious Batman spoof are back in this collaboration with CollegeHumor in “Batman Vs. Superman”. If you like Pete’s work, The Pete Holmes Show premieres October 28th after Conan on TBS.

This may not the fight you expected, but it’s still a pretty good fight.

“Hope starts with an H, stupid.”

We should warn you. The video is kind of NSFW for language. You can check it out after the break.

We all know how Christian Bale did as Batman, but now we get to see how he got the job thanks to this peek inside the extras for The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition which comes out this Tuesday.

In an interesting twist, he auditions with Amy Adams who would end up playing Lois Lane in Man of Steel. Actors had to audition wearing Val Kilmer’s version of the suit and it’s particularly interesting to hear how his gravelly-voiced version of Batman wasn’t nearly so pronounced as it was in the films.

The entire nerdverse cried out in horror when Ben Affleck was cast as Batman, so the thought that Justin Bieber might have a part in the Man of Steel sequel is cause for a complete meltdown. The Biebs put up this picture of himself on Instagram with what looks like a genuine Batman vs Superman script.

But breathe easy fellow nerds. A few hours earlier he tweeted:

So, it looks like we might have a Funny or Die sketch in the works, which is nothing to worry about. Please. Please let that be the story because otherwise, ugh.

The Royal Canadian Mint is planning on releasing a series of Superman coins to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Son of Jor-el’s first appearance back in 1938.

Most of the coins range in price from $30 to $130, but there’s also a snazzy $750 gold one. Between this and the creation of the crookie, I’m starting to think that those Canucks have got their priorities in order. You go, Canada!
