The summer of 2015 is getting less and less crowded the closer we get to it. Star Wars has already staked out a December 2015 release date and now Warner Bros. has announced that their huge untitled Man of Steel sequel, which will see the first ever big screen team-up of Batman and Superman, is being delayed to May 6, 2016.
The big deal here is that it will put DC’s biggest heroes in direct competition with a Marvel movie. Marvel has an untitled movie set for release on May 6th also, which means it will be one big ass movie weekend, or one of the studios is going to have to flinch and move release dates. We don’t know what movie will be released from Marvel but the timetable suggests possibly Thor 3 or a new Phase 3 hero like Doctor Strange.
There have been huge rumors that Warner is secretly wanting to film the Justice League movie right after Man of Steel 2 and release it only a year later. This delay could give them time to get the two massive productions off the ground without an unnecessary rush. One has to wonder if Ben Affleck’s busy schedule has come into conflict somehow also. I think we can all agree that we just want to see a shot of him in the Batsuit.
