Four months ago, after the success of the Captain America: Winter Soldier’s opening weekend, Marvel announced that Captain America 3 would be produced and released on May 6, 2016. This is the same date that DC’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film was slated. This was widely seen as shots fired across DC’s bow, whose film franchise plans depend widely upon the success of Batman v Superman. If DC has any hope of replicating Marvel’s film franchise success, it needs Batman v Superman to do well, as it will introduce, not only a new Batman (portrayed by Ben Affleck), but also Wonder Woman (played by Gal Gadot) in a lead up to what is widely speculated to be a Justice League movie.
Today, in a move that has suprised few, DC and Warner Bros. have announced a new release date, March 25th, 2016.
Additionally, Warner Bros. announced 9 more theatrical release dates for as yet unnamed films. See them and more speculation after the break!
