Warner Bros. And DC Move Release Date For Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice
We were honestly expecting an absolute bloodbath next summer with the amount of new big blockbuster hits that are on various big studios release schedules. Well, Warner and DC have moved one of these out of contention.
Superman v Batman: Dawn of Justice has been moved out of the summer release schedule, May 2016 and back to March, according to a statement issued to Slash Film.
The studios have made an incredibly smart move here, moving Batman v Superman out of the summer market into the quieter March period means that ticket sales may be an awful lot higher with little competition.
However, the big competition for that particular month and perhaps a test for DC is that Captain America is due for release in March of 2016 as well. Captain America: The Winter Solider brought in huge box office figures and received great critical response but Batman v Superman is one of the most highly anticipated films of the next few years.
