‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Release Date Delayed

Superman and Batman

Fans looking forward to Zack Snyder's Batman Vs. Superman will have to wait a little longer for the big screen showdown between the two DC superheroes.

In order to "allow the filmmakers time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story," Warner Bros. has decided to push the release date of the film forward from July 15, 2015 to May 6, 2016 (what's another 10 months when folks are already waiting over a year for it to hit theaters?).

Henry Cavill: Affleck Will Be a “Fantastic” Batman

Ben Affleck and Henry CavillHenry Cavill is sure Ben Affleck will make a "fantastic" Batman.

The Man Of Steel actor's Superman will be pitted against Ben's character in the provisionally titled Batman Vs Superman in 2015, and he's positive the star will do a great job of playing the superhero.

"I'm sure he'll be fantastic, above all else. As a filmmaker he's got his own style, he's not copying anyone else. He's been tenacious in his career, he's had ups followed by downs and now he's up again. I think that requires and shows a special strength of character and it's something I enjoy working with because jobs like this require a dedication to the work and belief in one's self, and Ben has that," he said.

Ben Affleck to Star as Batman in ‘Man of Steel’ Sequel

Ben AffleckWhether you want to remember him for directing Argo or acting in GigliBen Affleck has been chosen as the next actor to play Batman.

Taking the black cape and bat-eared costume from Christian Bale, who portrayed the Dark Knight in Christopher Nolan's recent Batman trilogy, Affleck will appear in the upcoming sequel to Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. Snyder released a statement announcing Affleck's casting:

"Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry [Cavill]'s Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retains the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can't wait to work with him."

The film - tentatively titled Batman vs. Superman - is expected to be released July 2015 with production beginning in 2014.

Box Office Breakdown: ‘Man of Steel’ Soars Above ‘This Is the End’

Man of Steel

Zack Snyder's latest Superman reboot, Man of Steel, was one of the most anticipated films of this summer - and it definitely delivered for Warner Bros.

Bringing in $113 million from the weekend earned the Christopher Nolan-produced flick the record opening for June, beating out Toy Story 3 ($110.3 million). Coming in second with $20.5 million was the debut of the Seth Rogen apocalyptic comedy This Is the End. Now You See Me stayed put at number three with $10.3 million while Fast & Furious 6 fell two spots to number four with $9.4 million. The Purge took the greatest dive, falling from the top spot last week to number five with $8.2 million.

New ‘Man of Steel’ Poster Sees Superman in Handcuffs

Man of Steel

Just weeks away from Man of Steel's official trailer unveiling (set to screen prior to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in theaters and online), Warner Bros. has revealed a new poster for the upcoming Superman film.

The poster sees the latest Superman, Henry Cavill, in handcuffs among what looks to be military personnel. Will it be a case of a frame job or the superhero ruffling the feathers of someone with great authority? We'll just have to wait and see when the Zack Snyder-directed film hits theaters on June 14.

Quote Of The Day: Laura Siegel Larson on Warner Bros. and DC Comics

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, DC Comics,

Action Comics #1“Fighting for what’s right has not been easy. No one would want to endure what Warner Bros. and DC Comics has put my family, the Shusters and my attorney through. And that’s exactly what their executives and lawyers want. By filing frivolous lawsuits against my family, the Shuster family and our lawyer, by publicly revealing my private communications, by driving up litigation costs and refusing to negotiate fairly, these companies think that other creators will be afraid to stand up to them, and that lawyers will think twice before taking on their cases.”

-- Laura Siegel Larson
[The daughter of Superman’s co-creator Jerry Siegel in an open letter discussing her case against Warner Bros. and DC Comics]
