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 Look At Superman In Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Reveals New Suit!!!

Superman Dawn Of Justice 2The first official image of Henry Cavil as Superman in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice has been released and it is AMAZING!!! Cavill has really beefed up to the point he looks even bigger now than he did in Man Of Steel. Superman looks like a complete BEAST!!! Which in combination with the way Ben Affleck has beefed up for his role as Batman has me even more excited for this upcoming superhero smash. In the new picture you can also see some very subtle but noticeable changes to the suit that i think really makes it look new and even better than the Man Of Steel suit. The first thing I noticed was the change in the belt. It’s a rectangular shape now as opposed to the circular one and the color has changed to more of blue/white color. The design around Superman’s wrist and torso area are a bit different and the famous iconic “S” symbol looks slightly different on the suit, perhaps it’s a bit more raised on the chest and the color is slightly altered. All of these changes are subtle but all together they make the suit look so much cooler and better overall. Personally, I’m ecstatic about the new image of Superman and coming off the reveal of Affleck in the Batman suit and how amazing that looked, I’m totally excited for the Batman v Superman movie. In an interview with USA Today, who released the image, director Zack Snyder said “Cavill is definitely more comfortable in the role the second time around…The more time I spend with Henry, the more he’s Superman to me.” And it shows, Cavill looks like a stronger, more confident Supes in the new image. Which can only mean great things for the Man Of Steel on the big screen. Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is scheduled to be released on May 6, 2016.

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.
