Warner Bros. Pictures has decided to push back the release of its highly anticipated Superman-Batman movie into 2016. The studio claims that this is the best move for them to provide their filmmakers with the “time to realize fully their vision.”
The movie was originally scheduled for release on July 15, 2015, but now won’t be hitting the big screen for almost an entire year after the original date, on May 6, 2016. The delay came after production on the film got moved into the second quarter of this year. Warner Bros. Pictures’ untitled Peter Pan movie, however, will be moving its release date to July 17, 2015, filling in the gap being left by the Superman-Batman movie.
Looks like the folks at Warner Bros. are just playing Jenga with their release dates to make sure each project comes out nice and sturdy. Hopefully the delay of the Superman-Batman movie will help it stack up higher than fan expectations. Because you know, that’s pretty damn high.
