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!!!

The Rock To Be The New Green Lantern In Batman Vs Superman/Man Of Steel 2?!!!

The Rock To Be The New Green Lantern In Batman Vs Superman/Man Of Steel 2?!!! 

There is now speculation that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be Green Lantern, John Stewart in the sequel to last summer’s smash movie “Man Of Steel”. The action star had an interesting Instagram photo a while ago that caught quite a few people’s eyes and is gaining attention again now due to the latest rumblings surrounding Warner Bros. and their DC Universe projects. The hashtag to the photo read, “#JohnStewartCanStillWhupSupermansAss” (which he totally can’t by the way), hence the speculation. Just in the last couple of weeks, rumors were rampant that Johnson would be cast as Superman nemesis Darkseid, who is a villain so powerful it surely would be the catalyst to bring about the creation of the Justice League. The justice League eventually forming has been pretty much considered a given with the casting announcements that have been made for the Batman/Superman film. The question is will we see the true beginnings of it in Man Of Steel 2 or will the Justice League movie be filmed back to back with the Batman/Superman/MOS2 film and that’s when we see The League formed? What do you think? Would you rather see The Rock as Green Lantern John Stewart or as Darkseid?
