Damn. Someone’s getting ambitious.
The big news today is that Zack Snyder’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” has moved release date once again. But this time instead of being delayed, it will instead move up a month and change, from the previously scheduled May 6, 2016 to the now earlier March 25, 2016.
As you’ll recall, Marvel had already set “Captain America 3” for the May 6th weekend, but then Warner decided they might want to slot “BvS” there, too. For the longest time, people were waiting to see who would blink first. Now you have your answer. You can view this two ways: Warner Bros. blinked first, or Warner Bros. did the smart thing.
Either/or. The results are the same: Batman and his pal Superman will beat Captain America’s third go’round to the big screen.
And that, apparently, is only the beginning of what Warner has planned. The studio and their D.C. pals have also announced that 9 other comic book movies will be joining “Batman v Superman” starting in 2016 and running through to 2020. They didn’t happen to say what those movies would be, but here’s their tentative schedule (knowing Warner, the chances of this schedule holding up is almost as certain as me dating Kate Upton):
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (March 2016) – 3/25/16
Untitled DC Film (August 2016) – 8/5/16
Untitled DC Film (June 2017) – 6/23/17
Untitled DC Film (Nov. 2017) – 11/17/17
Untitled DC Film (March 2018) – 3/23/18
Untitled DC Film (July 2018) – 7/27/18
Untitled DC Film (April 2019) – 4/5/19
Untitled DC Film (June 2019) – 6/14/19
Untitled DC Film (April 2020) – 4/3/20
Untitled DC Film (June 2020) – 6/19/20
(Note: I have no idea how these dates correspond to Marvel’s own ambitious plans moving forward. I’m frankly too lazy to cross-check them.)
I’ll give Warner Bros. an “A” for ambition. As for the execution, well…we’ll see.
