Only the release date is delayed...
While the delay in Batman vs. Superman's release date has lead to a host of rumors, they are unsurprisingly all being proven untrue. Rumors were flying fast following Warner Bros. deciding to delay the film's premiere until May of 2016 that production was going to be delayed and that Ben Affleck had either been injured or was about ready to quit the film. However, Deadline reports that the film's shooting has not been delayed and will go on as normal.
The site notes that Affleck has dropped out of directing the show he is executive producing for FOX, The Middle Man, in order to start work on the film. Henry Cavill and Zack Snyder are ready to shoot as well, with Gal Gadot not filming her work as Wonder Woman until probably May.
Warner Bros. had originally revealed when announcing the date change that they were giving more time to work on post-production special effects, and they may actually be the case.
