In a recent press release, Warner Brothers Pictures revealed the official title and logo for Zack Snyder’s anticipated Man of Steel sequel. As this film is the prequel to the upcoming Justice League film, the title Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice makes sense.
The new logo is also quite interesting because it incorporates both of the iconic Batman and Superman symbols.
Details about production and shooting locations were also revealed in the press release:
“Principal photography is underway in Metro Detroit, Michigan
