Justice League of America name change
The upcoming superhero ensemble film Justice League of America seems like it could be getting a massive name change, and for no apparent good reason.
Justice League of America could well be becoming American Heroes.
Now I did consider that maybe one of the reasons that this is happening is because of the title and today's political environment. Justice League of America might not be looked favourably on by every single territory in the world, so maybe a name change was to make it less American and more heroic.
Apparently not, because American Heroes gives just the same connotations, although a little less feeling as though the American superheroes are the defenders and enforcers of all things Justice.
Cinema Blend carries the story from Moviehole that the name change is imminent, they also say that the change in name is due to the non-American release of the comic being titled American Heroes – ah, that might explain everything...except the title's rubbish.
It sounds like a reality show, or something that comes from cheap television. I'm in Scotland, I don't read Justice League of America and never have, and yet I know who they are, even before the film was talked about. American Heroes? I have no clue.
I don't think the name change is a good idea, and the Justice League of America emblem using the initials could be really good, although frankly I'd drop the America bit and go with Justice League.
