‘Justice League’ Title Confirmed By Geoff Johns

We are finally on the brink past the Dawn of Justice.

On this week’s episode of Heroic Insider, Umberto Gonzalez speculated on a couple potential titles for the upcoming Justice League film directed by Zack Snyder. Some of the proposed titles included:

  • Justice League: United
  • Justice League: Angels and Demons
  • Justice League: Gods Among Us
  • Justice League: Gods Among Men

Well, it looks like new co-head of DC Films Geoff Johns has officially confirmed the title via his Twitter account.

Yes indeed, Justice League will be called… Well, yeah. The follow-up to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently in principal photography right now. In all honesty, I prefer no subtitles for the first film featuring DC’s iconic League. I believe that the subtitles should be reserved for upcoming sequels and it only makes sense to drop it all together. To borrow from The Social Network, drop the subtitle. Just Justice League. It sounds cleaner.

Zack Snyder returns to the director’s chair following his first two entries in the DC Extended Universe, and the film stars Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Jeremy Irons (Alfred), J.K. Simmons (Commissioner Gordon), Amber Heard (Mera), and Willem Dafoe. Jesse Eisenberg has recently hinted that he will reprise his role as the villainous Lex Luthor. The film will feature a screenplay by Chris Terrio, and Affleck has been recently promoted as an Executive Producer on the production.

Justice League will hit theaters on November 17, 2017. Keep checking back here at for more news on the film. If you are itching for more to satisfy your DC appetite, the R-Rated Ultimate Edition of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released on Digital HD on June 28 and on Blu-Ray on July 19.

    Sometimes the simplest answer works.

  • Boogie

    Good!

  • Vegas82

    After the jokes about BvS’s title I’m not surprised they went with something simple.

    • SAMURAI36

      Except this was always the title. Long before BVS was even released.

      • Victor Thomas

        I swear Samurai I know you’re a good guy but seriously you better be Zack Snyder or related to him or work for DC because you see no wrong in DC whatsoever. Every move they make you’ll defend it’s unreasonable and unrealistic because nothing is perfect but there you always are defending everything DC. I swear I’m not being sarcastic but DC needs to hook you up with some advance tickets, gear etc. https://youtu.be/45h73pDutBk

        • Carl

          You’re right about him. He praises everything DC and hates on everything Marvel. Don’t try to reason with him, he’s beyond it.

          • Victor Thomas

            Carl don’t start you do the same with Marvel bro.

          • SAMURAI36

            Okay, at least you’re being fair.

          • LSB

            I’m going to send you kids to bed without dinner. Pipe down, Lol! Just playing. Keep on keeping on.

          • Carl

            Not exactly. Marvel Studios does great work and rarely makes mistakes. I’m critical of them when they deserve it.

            I also like a lot of DC stuff, just not their last 2 movies. So, nothing like that guy.

        • SAMURAI36

          WTF? This has all of what, to do with what I just said?

          And I hope you are just as critical of all the Marvel Zombies on here, as you are of me.

          • Victor Thomas

            I am did you forget we destroyed the Marvel Universe together? It does because he himself said he didn’t know the full title yet and you just blindly defend everything DC related.

          • SAMURAI36

            He said “right now it’s just Justice League”.

          • Victor Thomas

            He said the working title is justice league. that’s different It’s just something they need for pre production. I’m on your side because you love DC the way I love DC but man take a down a level bro lol

          • SAMURAI36

            I could see the second JL film having an extra title, but there’s really no need for the first JL film to have any other name besides JL.

          • Victor Thomas

            I agree Justice League is enough to sell tickets. I know you’re a snyder fan but I love the shake up at DC I think it’ll be great for DC/WB down the road. I already love the director switch on The Flash movie.

          • SAMURAI36

            Meh, I think the “shake up” is more exaggerated than anything.

            All the key players are still involved, albeit in other ways. Snyder’s not really gone anywhere. He’s still a part of the DC Brain Trust, and he’s still directing both JL films.

            Johns was always there from the start, and he’s still reporting to the same people as he always was. He’s even keeping his same title that he had before the “shake up”.

            I think people underestimated Johns’ “power”, because they never really knew what his position and duties were in the first place.

            On top of that, people have bought so heavily into that whole “Feige is the supreme boss at Marvel” (which he’s not, and he never really was), to the point that they think they know/understand how all this stuff works.

            Movie making is a VERY complex process, and the parties involved always end up having complex roles in their involvement. This goes for all studios, and DC is no different.

            Regarding the Flash director, that was bound to happen, regardless of the so-called “shake up”. If you recall, it happened before, on the WW movie, long before there was this supposed “trouble in DC paradise”.

          • Victor Thomas

            Well I make movies myself and I’m part of the Industry. I think shake up changed a lot of things especially for snyder Johns will be on set and have the power to change things and Affleck will now be in control of the editing process and when you’re making a movie that’s a lot of interference.

          • SAMURAI36

            Hmm, didn’t know that. May I ask, what studio you’re involved with? Or is that TMI?

          • Victor Thomas

            Well when comes to making movies I’m independent but I’ve gone to school for Directing, Cinematography, editing, photography and graphic design so I work for different studios when I get the chance to build a resume I take it. I’ll be on set as a member of the film crew for the Spiderman production in Atlanta because I live in florida and it’s easy for me to travel.

          • Steve Steve

            That’s cool man! I’m gonna look for your comments from now on (not for spoilers, for opinion).

            Maybe add a pic to your profile? Might I recommend either of these famous Victors:

          • Victor Thomas

            Good because I won’t post spoilers because no one would let me on there set again so yeah……secondly based on my knowledge so far the Atlanta set i’m going to will only be shooting the high school scenes so I’m not sure they’ll be many spoilers and lastly there is going to be a bunch of extras there so I advise you to sign up or just look at people twitter and instagram accounts there is always set pics now. I’ll give my opinion on it though but fair warning I am not a big spiderman fan I’ve read almost every comic because i’m a nerd so i know all the cannon but it’s never really been my thing, especially peter parker I’m more of miles morales and spider man 2099 fan than anything, I did like him in civil war though.

          • Steve Steve

            Yeah, I don’t care for spoilers. They diminish the movie-going experience for me. I just think you seem to have something valuable to say. Cheers Victor!

          • Victor Thomas

            Thanks man. I’ll share what I can when possible.

          • Steve Steve

            I feel shame! I forgot about this guy!

          • flavortang

            YOU LEAVE JACK BURTON ALONE! We are in his debt. He showed great courage!

          • LupeX

            The shakeup is overblown. Way out of proportion by haters with an anti DCEU/Snyder agenda. When u read their articles objectively see how they relentlessly try to paint a picture to convince everyone that there’s this phantom “BvS Fallout”. It’s almost like brainwashing and propaganda.
            And many fans have been brainwashed, you hear them repeat the same lies and false rumors in casual conversation like it is fact. There’s no evidence to show that WB is unhappy with Snyder. R they disappointed with the critical response of BvS? And that it could have done better financially? Yes of course. But they’re happy with what they’ve got and they’re working on it so it’s the best it can be.
            They’re keeping the same tone and creative vision they’ve always had. There’s no deviation from the course. Suicide Squad was always going to have the tone it has but you’ll see the agenda driven blogs try to say that it is a response to BvS. Wonder Woman is going to be dark and dramatic so I’m curious to see the response to it.

            Interestingly filmmakers and producers have dispelled some rumors recently. Could this become a trend? Blogs r click baiting using fear and hate, it’s kind of gross.

          • SAMURAI36

            PRECISELY!! I could not have said it better.

          • LupeX

            hey what’s your twitter handle?

          • SAMURAI36

            LOL, I think you have it already. I was wondering if that was you I responded to earlier. (I just don’t wanna announce it on here)

        • SAMURAI36

          However, I will admit that I’m unapologetically DC. I’ve never tried to hide that fact.

          I rep my team, win or lose. It’s not that they are perfect, they do make mistakes, but these days it seems that all people see is DC’s mistakes, while hyping up the other side of the aisle, as if they make no mistakes at all.

          So yes, I fight the good DC fight, because someone has to.

          • Victor Thomas

            Listen I’m with you, I live and breathe DC but bro there is things I don’t like that they do.

          • SAMURAI36

            Me too, but those things are insignificant to me, and not worth mentioning, certainly not worth harping over.

            Nothing DC does bugs me to the degree that the things Marvel does really grates on my nerves.

            And again, we don’t live in a world of balanced POV’s right now. It doesn’t do DC or its fans any good to try to present a “balanced” view of DC, because the DC haters will just still attempt to unbalance the equation.

            OTOH, I do whatever I can to highlight the negative aspects of Marvel, because if the Zombies had their way, they never let those negative aspects see the light of day.

          • Victor Thomas

            I don’t agree but now I at least understand why you do it, fair enough. I just have high expectations for DC I literally almost passed out before BVS came on the screen, The only thing I was excited for more was my daughter’s birth so when I watched it I was severely disappointed but from what they’ve shown from the blu ray trailer it looks like it will fill a lot of holes. Are you buying the collector’s edition?

          • SAMURAI36

            I’ve already pre-ordered it. I’m gonna probably give a couple of copies out as gifts.

            I’m all in with BVS, from start to finish!!

          • Victor Thomas

            Damn I was going to offer to send you one lol. Who do you think Jena Malone is? It seems to me by the trailer she’s cat grant.

          • SAMURAI36

            LOL!! I’m thinking the same thing, although the “rumors” (if they are to be believed) are saying otherwise.

            I still wanna hold onto the hope that she’s Barbara Gordon, although the hair color seems to debunk that.

          • Victor Thomas

            Didn’t perry mention cat grant in the movie?

          • SAMURAI36

            Did she? Aw d&mn, that means I gotta watch the movie again to verify. ;-p

          • Victor Thomas

            Somebody mentioned her I’m sure.

          • flavortang

            I gotta admit that I hope Jimmy Olsen is retconned back into a Superman sequel so I can see him squirm as Cat Grant tries to seduce him.

          • Victor Thomas

            Also I really hope they show more of the Knightmare scene because I want to see if that girl that was part of Batman’s rebellion was suppose to be a female grifter.

          • flavortang

            Preordered the digital version a few days ago. Cannot wait.

  • SAMURAI36

    So, this is HH’s way of trying to clean that recycled “rumor” up?

  • HG2012

    so umberto strikes out again so shocked lol

  • Steve Steve

    I hope for WB to add a sub-title. On that day there will be an explosion of anti-DC commentary and pro-DC defensiveness.

    In the end… The title doesn’t matter. The only reason people are discussing it now is to postulate about plot.

  • Darthmanwe

    Heh, and after all those heated discussions about what full title should be.

    Well trolled Johns. Well trolled.

  • xxjinzaxx

    The title is perfect.

    • flavortang

      I don’t know. It’s kind of ambiguous. People might be confused as to what movie they’re walking into.

      • xxjinzaxx

        lol

        the type of critical thinking the public does today, it wouldn’t surprise me if they did get confused.

        • flavortang

          I’d heard from a bunch of people prior to its release that they didn’t know Man of Steel was about Superman, but that’s a little different, I guess.

          • SAMURAI36

            Yeah, that’s really weird to me. I guess they didn’t know who “The Dark Knight” was either, huh?

          • flavortang

            A sequel to Batman Begins. They knew from the first movie it was a follow-up, especially from word of mouth.
