Hold on to your tights, superhero fans. Warner Bros. has yet again changed the release date of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The Zack Snyder movie was originally to have opened in Summer 2015, but earlier this year the date was moved to May 2016. Breaking news from Hollywood today now has another revised opening day of March 25th, 2016. The latest new date is probably to avoid a box-office showdown with Marvel’s new Captain America film, and is part of a long-term strategy from Warner Bros. to release nine (yes, nine!) movies based DC Comics as well as “two Warner Bros. event films” (whatever that means: are they the Harry Potter spinoffs?) over five years.
No titles have been released so fanboys have been speculating which comic book characters will get the big screen treatment. Certainly there will be at least one more Batman/Superman movie with Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) makes an appearance in BvS before getting her own standalone movie, and Jason Momoa will play Aquaman. Both characters will then feature in the Justice League film alongside the Dark Knight and the Caped Crusader. Yet another DC comic book character primed for a movie is Shazam with Dwayne Johnson, if rumors at Comic-Con are anything to go by. Meanwhile, Marvel has had its plans for future movies release leaked. This is all good news for comic-book fans, who can rest easy knowing that their heroes will be crushing it at the box-office until 2020. Grown-ups, however, may despair at the sheer amount of spandex coming to the multiplex.
