Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman delayed until 2016

Warner Bros. have announced that they have pushed the release date of the Batman vs. Superman, thier Man of Steel sequel film by 10 months from 17 July, 2015 until 6 May 2016. Warner Bros said in a statement that it needed to move back the date to allow “the filmmakers time to realise fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story”.

Batman vs. Superman’s original July 2015 release date will now be filled by director Joe Wright’s Peter Pan film.

“We are happy to take advantage of these coveted summer dates, which are perfect for two of our biggest tentpole releases,” Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman said in a statement. “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.  Peter Pan has delighted people of every generation for more than a century, so we are thrilled to bring him back to the screen next summer for today’s moviegoers.”

Surprisingly the new date of 6 May 2016 is currently also set to be the release date  of an unspecified Marvel Phase 3 movie. If that dates stays the same it will see DC going head to head with Marvel.
