EXCLUSIVE: Batman vs Superman Pushed Delayed!

Hey all – Steve here.

Ok, so the exclusive portion of the title is a little white lie. We will never try to claim an exclusive story that isn’t one. The fact of the matter is that the Batman vs Superman movie that was supposed to hit theaters on July 17th, 2015 will now be released on May 6th, 2016. Quite the disappointment to fans of Superman and/or Batman. Looks like Ben Affleck could have been injured although those are rumors at this point. The month of May in 2016 will be a busy one with Superman-Batman, X-Men Apocalypse a few weekends later and followed quickly by The Amazing Spider-Man 3 from Sony in early June.

In a statement, a representative from the studio said that the move is being made to “[allow] the filmmakers time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story.”

While people are obviously devastated about this news, there is a silver lining. This gives the team behind the scenes more time for the development of the movie. There has to be a ton of work that goes into getting Superman and Batman into one movie. Then add in Wonder Woman and others to possibly prepare for a Justice League movie? That’s a lot of work! More time to wait and more time to get excited!

And taking the place of “Batman Vs. Superman” next summer? Joe Wright’s “Pan.” Enjoy.
