The official logo and the official title for the Man of Steel sequel has been revealed and it’s not Justice League Origins.

The official title for Zack Snyder’s DC Comics follow-up is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Principal photography began today in Michigan and will also head to Illinois, Africa, and the South Pacific.

Feels more like the title of straight-to-DVD animated superhero movie rather than a massive Warner Bros. tentpole. Batman v Superman is like the name of a lawsuit, but Dawn of Justice makes sense, because it’s the first time Supes and Bats have met.

The film’s official logo was revealed as well, which looks pretty familiar at this point.

Here’s the start-of-production announcement and be sure to visit the official site at BatmanvSupermanDawnofJustice.com!
