Batman Vs. Superman is about to face some more stiff competition. The DC flick's release date has been pushed back and will now go head-to-head with Marvel.
Batman Vs. Superman, which stars Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, is now slated to open May 6, 2016, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Man of Steel sequel was previously set for July 17, 2015, a date that will be replaced by Peter Pan. Now, the highly anticipated movie will compete against an untitled Marvel movie.
"We are happy to take advantage of these coveted summer dates, which are perfect for two of our biggest tentpole releases," Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman said in a statement. "We share the fans' excitement to see DC Comics' most popular figures, Superman and Batman, together on the big screen for the first time, which will now be arriving in theatres in May 2016. Peter Pan has delighted people of every generation for more than a century, so we are thrilled to bring him back to the screen next summer for today's moviegoers."
Who do you think will win at the box office?
