Fans have been waiting on pins and needles for the summer 2015 movie season to come, as originally it was supposed to feature a new Avengers movie, a new Jurassic Park movie, a Star wars movie and the first ever big screen meeting between Batman and Superman.
Star Wars left the party months ago, moving their release date to December 18, 2015. But while that angered fans, at least it stayed in the same year, as the same cannot be said for Warner Bros. Batman vs. Superman. The Hollywood Reporter and Variety have revealed that the film has been delayed until 2016 and will not be coming out during the summer of 2015.
The new release date for Batman vs. Superman is May 6, 2016.
It’s just a 10 month delay, and in comparison, Star Wars Episode VII delayed it’s release eight months from May 2015 to December 2015.
But fans have been looking forward to this Batman vs. Superman picture since it was announced at Comic-Con this year and the delay is not going to make people happy. No specific reason was given for the delay, but Warner Bros released a statement that can be summed up with the phrase don’t fret about it.
The 10 month delay will only heighten anticipation which was already astronomically high.
