Following online speculation about the possible working title of the first "Justice League" movie, and what it might tell us about the plot, Geoff Johns stepped forward to clear up any "misconceptions."

A widely circulated rumor indicated the Zack Snyder film is likely using one of four working titles: "Justice League: United," "Justice League: Gods Among Us," "Justice League: Angels and Demons" or "Justice League: Gods Among Men."
The first two have obvious connections to DC Entertainment properties, with "Justice League United" the title of a 2014-2015 comic series and "Injustice: Gods Among Us" a popular video game set in an alternate reality in which a grieving Superman establishes a new world order, and the other heroes unite to try to end his totalitarian regime.
The more straightforward "Justice League" stands in stark contrast to "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," which has been the target of more than a few jokes since the title was revealed in 2014.
Of course, with the name of "Part One" now cleared up, speculation is free to begin about the title of 2019's "Part Two."
Opening Nov. 17, 2017, "Justice League" stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons and J. K. Simmons.
