Via CBR:

The untitled Man of Steel sequel has officially been titled: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Principal photography has started today in Detroit and as reported by Variety, the use of "Justice" in the title further suggests the film will function heavily as a "Justice League" prelude. It was confirmed late last month that Man of Steel and Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder will also helm a "Justice League" film, following Batman v Superman.

Batman v Superman sequel starring both Superman and Batman was first announced July 2013 at Comic-Con International in San Diego. Last week, Snyder released the first look at Affleck in the film's Batsuit via Twitter.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled for release on May 6, 2016, and also stars Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Jeremy Irons (Alfred) and Holly Hunter in an as-yet unspecified role.

Warner Bros.' full press release follows.
