Warner Bros. Pictures has announced that the release of Zack Snyder untitled Superman/Batman film has been moved to May 6, 2016, “allowing the filmmakers time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story.”
The decision was made following the shift of the start of production to second quarter of this year.
The new date pits the movie against an untitled Marvel movie on the same day. Warner has also set a July 17, 2015, worldwide release date for its as-yet-untitled Peter Pan movie.
Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution said, “We are happy to take advantage of these coveted summer dates, which are perfect for two of our biggest tentpole releases. We share the fans’ excitement to see DC Comics most popular figures, Superman and Batman, together on the big screen for the first time, which will now be arriving in theatres in May 2016.”
Kwan Vandenberg added, We know that there is already great anticipation building for the next Super Hero film from Zack Snyder, and we are equally eager to see what he has in store for Superman and Batman as they share the big screen for the first time ever.
Superman/Batman film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. The film will also reunite Man of Steel stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane, and also stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.
Snyder will direct the film from a screenplay written by David S. Goyer and a story co-created by Goyer and Snyder.
