So last month, it was announced that the Birds of Prey movie was, in fact, actually titled Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). A joke title that turned into the real one, the title is obviously indicative of the tone of the movie, going for something a lot more funny and lighthearted then, say, Batman v Superman or even Suicide Squad. But what if other comic book movies copied this same title template? What would they look like then?

First, let’s start with the DCEU:

  • Man of Steel (or: the Unfortunate Upbringing of One Clark Kent)
  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (and the Various Teases of Movies That Will Never Happen)
  • Suicide Squad (or: the Trailer Was Better: The Movie)
  • Wonder Woman (or: Finally, After All These Years)
  • Justice League (and the Great Disappointment)
  • Aquaman (or: Can You Actually Believe You’re Excited for This Film?)

And now, let’s move on to other comic book films:

  • Captain America: Civil War (or: the Battle of the Bros)
  • Logan (or: How To Make a Violent and Depressing Superhero Movie Still Good)
  • X-Men: Apocalypse (or: When Will Bryan Singer Stop Directing, Please)
  • Black Panther (and the Most Complex Villain in Any Marvel Movie)
  • Avengers: Infinity War (or: the Movie No-one Will Shut Up About Until the Next One Comes Out)
  • Once Upon a Deadpool (or: a Shameless Recut Designed to Bring In More Money and Show Disney That a PG-13 Deadpool Movie Can Totally Work)
