The studio is really gearing up...
Warner Bros. has blinked in the release date war with Marvel, but in doing so they've also unveiled an aggressive slate of films that they're preparing to unveil within the DC universe. The studio has announced that Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice will release on March 25th, 2016 which is a move away from the original May 6th, 2016 date that had it releasing in the same weekend as Captain America 3. The film will now face off with Beverly Hills Cop.
In addition, the studio has announced nine (yes, NINE) new release dates for DC Comics films. You can see the set below. As previously reported, the studio has reportedly planned films for Shazam, Sandman, a Flash/Green Lantern team-up and a direct sequel to Man of Steel, in addition to the announced Justice League and Wonder Woman. It remains to be seen which of these films will be in which date, and what the other films will be.
