The highly anticipated sequel to “Man of Steel” which will feature three of DC’s most iconic heroes needs more time to come to fruition. The untitled, “Superman-Batman” project, which some like to call “Superman vs. Batman,” has been moved to 2016 in the effort to, according to the producers at Warners Bros., “allow the filmmakers time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story.” The news of the unprecedented superhero feature being moved back a year, does come as a disappointment, but if the time extension gives Zack Snyder more time to get the vision right, it only makes the anticipation of seeing the two legendary heroes, three counting the inclusion of Wonder Woman, on the big screen for the first time ever for film lovers and lovers of comic book mythology, such as myself, greater.
The “Superman-Batman” project stars Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, Lawrence Fishburne as Perry White and Diane Lane as Martha Kent. Zack Snyder remains the director and Oscar-winning screenwriter from “Argo,” Chris Terrio, will helm the screenplay using story ideas from David S. Goyer and Zack Snyder. The Superman-Batman project will be released in theaters on May 6, 2016.
