Not long after the news broke that Ben Affleck would be playing Batman in the upcoming Warner Bros. film that pits the Caped Crusader against Superman (played by Henry Cavill who donned the cape for last summer’s Man of Steel), fans started wondering what the film would be called.

While the title isn’t thought to mention either superhero by name and the film isn’t slated to hit theaters until 2015, the studio has given hints to potential titles by quietly registering a number of domain names, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

So far, it looks like the top contenders are:

Man of Steel: Battle the Knight
Man of Steel: Darkness Falls
Man of Steel: Shadow of the Night
Man of Steel: Beyond Darkness
Man of Steel: Black of Knight
Man of Steel: Knight Falls
Man of Steel: The Blackest Hour
Man of Steel: The Darkest Hour
Man of Steel: The Darkness Within

We’re noticing a pattern, but as long as they don’t go with Man of Steel: Shadowy Black Knight Battles As Darkness Falls, we’ll be happy.
