'Batman Vs Superman' delayed until 2016
Delay to 'allow the filmmakers time to realise fully their vision'
Batman Vs Superman has been delayed until 2016.
Warner Bros. announced yesterday (January 17) that the sequel to Man Of Steel will be delayed by 10 months until May 6, 2016 to "allow the filmmakers time to realise fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story", reports Total Film. The film was originally slated for a Summer 2015 release.
In a statement, Warner Bros. spokesperson, Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, said: "We know that there is already great anticipation building for the next superhero film from Zack Snyder, and we are equally eager to see what he has in store for Superman and Batman as they share the big screen for the first time ever."
Ben Affleck will appear in the film as Batman, while Henry Cavill is set to reprise his role as Superman. Amy Adams will be returning as Lois Lane and fellow Man Of Steel cast members Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne have officially signed up to reprise their roles too in the Zack Synder-directed movie.
