Not every TV show, book, or movie starts with the name we eventually come to know it as. We didn’t see The Vengeance of Khan in movie theaters, and Nowhere didn’t come to puzzle us in the way it did as Lost would. Title changes are a weird world of what might have been—so tell us about your favorites.


One of the most infamous in nerdy circles is of course the original name for Return of the Jedi, Revenge of the Jedi, which was actually the name that prompted Star Trek II to get its eventual title in the first place. So use that as your springboard and tell us about your favorite titles-that-never-were in the comments!
