“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is aiming to be one of the biggest tentpoles of 2016. But the film isn’t the only superhero film coming out that year. Also coming out is “Captain America 3.” Even worse is that “Captain America 3” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” were going to debut on the same day, May 6. Of course, that wasn’t going to work.
Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that the release of “Batman v Superman” has been moved to another date. Instead of coming out in May, the film will now be released March 25, 2016. I’m sure with a March release date, some might be wondering if the film will suffer from the early date. The month is one that “Batman v Superman” will surely dominate, but it’s also a month that studios use to release their dead films. However, this film isn’t just any film; this is a film with both Batman and Superman, not to mention the fact that it’s a film that has been scrutinized and analyzed within an inch of its life. The audience will be there, even if it’s just to see if the film will fail.
“Batman v Superman” is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg and Jeremy Irons. What do you think about the move? How well do you think the film will do in March, a month that doesn’t have much competition? Give your opinions in the comments section below.
