Warner Bros. Blinks First!!! Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Gets New Release Date!!! Also Announces Release Dates For 9 Future DC Films!!!

batman-v-superman In a game of chicken that Warner Bros. initiated with Marvel, The DC Comics owner blinked first. After initially changing their scheduled release date of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice to go head to head with Marvel’s future Captain America 3 movie, and professing they would not budge, Warner Bros. has indeed budged, blinked, chickened out, and whatever other metaphor for retreating you can come up with, and announced that they are changing the release date for the upcoming superhero blockbuster. But the good news is that the movie will be pushed up and not delayed. Batman & Superman fans will now get to see the two comic book goliaths go at it on March 25, 2016. A surprisingly early release for a movie that has Summer Blockbuster written all over it.

Personally, I think Batman v Superman would have won the Box Office battle against Cap 3 because even though the Captain America films and pretty much everything Marvel has put out these last few years have been really good, it’s Batman & Superman on the big screen together for the first time ever!!! And I think everyone that’s even remotely a comic book and superhero fan wants to see that. It also looks like we will be seeing a lot more of the heroes and villains from the DC Nation, as according to Box Office Mojo, Warner Bros. has also announced release dates for nine more untitled future DC Films and two untitled WB “Event” films. Speculations are that some of the untitled DC Films will be the already confirmed Justice League movie and it’s potential sequels, a solo Wonder Woman movie, a Sandman movie involving Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and a Shazam/Black Adam movie starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Early thoughts are the two WB “Event” films will be the sequels to the Harry Potter spinoff movie ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ which is scheduled for Nov. 18, 2016.

So what do you think of the new release date for Batman v Superman?   Do you think Warner Bros. showed weakness by backing out? Should they have kept the box office battle with Marvel going? And what are your thoughts on the heavy stable of DC films that are rumored to come? What movies and characters would you like to see in these future movies?

Feel free to join the discussion and give your thoughts and opinions!!!

First Tease At New Batmobile For Man Of Steel 2 AKA Batman VS Superman!!!

First Tease Of New Batmobile For Man Of Steel 2 AKA Batman VS Superman!!!

Man Of Steel Director, Zack Snyder has tweeted a teaser image of the new Batmobile for his upcoming Man Of Steel sequel which is tentatively being called Man Of Steel 2 and/or Batman VS Superman. As we all know by now, Ben Affleck is set to portray the caped crusader in this film and everyone and their mama has been chomping at the bit for any information or footage or pictures of anything to do with this movie. Snyder himself provided the masses with that as he has tweeted an image of the new Batmobile albeit Batman’s ride is conveniently covered by a large black tarp only revealing the back wheels and something resembling bat wings on the top, similar to the Batmobile from the Tim Burton directed movies. Don’t fret yet Batfans, cause Mr. Snyder said in the tweet, “Could be time to pull the tarp…Tomorrow?” So we may just get the full reveal and look of the Batman’s ride, this time tomorrow.

Solange Knowles Viciously Attacks Jay Z In Elevator At Met Gala!!! (Video)

” I Got 99 Problems But A Bitch Ain’t One, Hit Me!!!” And hit him she did!!! In a shocking video just released by TMZ (Shout out to Harvey Levin and the TMZ Crew. Love those Guys. ) Beyonce’s not so little sister Solange straight snapped off and brutally attacked Mr. Carter himself, Jay Z, in an elevator at last week’s Met Gala event. Now unfortunately, as usual, there is no audio to this footage, but we can only imagine what was said or done for Solange to behave so violently towards Jay. She swings at him several times and aggressively kicks him in his groin twice before Jay was able to grab her foot!!! Rumor has it she also spit on Jay as well. Seeing the video, it’s very apparent that Solange is extremely pissed at Jay about something. Jay Z never physically attacked back while security separated the two. The security guard also pressed the emergency stop button while all of this was going down to keep the situation private. A pretty smart move but pointless in the end as the surveillance footage is now public anyways. Even more surprising is that Beyonce seemed very calm about the situation. She didn’t show much emotion, which is shocking when your sister is trying to knock your husband’s block off. I’m sure this story is going to get some major play and we will hear tons of opinions. I just hope we get the audio from that elevator. I think that’s what everybody wants at this point.
