Zack Snyder’s follow up movie to last year’s The Man of Steel has seen its release date moved forward to 25th March 2016. This is the new release date for the United States, with a UK release still scheduled for 29th April 2016.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to star Henry Cavill as Superman, and Ben Affleck as Batman, with Gal Gadot making an appearance as Wonder Woman. Some leaked footage of a behind-close-doors screening at San Diego Comic Con was uploaded online a couple of weeks ago, and we’ve also been given our first glimpse of Gal as the Amazonian princess too.
This move in date for the movie comes off the back of Warner Bros. announcing a new list of DC and ‘Warner Bros. Event’ films scheduled up until the end of 2020. Thanks, Deadline.

Whilst this list gives nothing away in terms of what exact movies we can expect, it at least lets us know they’re serious about building a DC movie universe, just as Marvel have done so themselves.
The Batman v Superman movie edges closer towards our eyeballs – are you happy about the news?
