What If Other Comic Book Movies Were Named Like Birds of Prey?

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)
