On Friday, January 17 posted the news that the upcoming superhero film "Batman vs. Superman" release date has been pushed back to May 6, 2016. The action film was originally scheduled to arrive in theaters in the summer of 2015. The film will be the first time both Superman and Batman will appear on screen together.

Warner Bros. Pictures released a statement saying that "the filmmakers need time to realize fully their vision" and special effects shouldn't be rushed to make sure the picture is even better than the first one. Henry Cavill will return as Superman and Batman will be portrayed by actor Ben Affleck. There are also reports that Affleck suffered an injury which has caused the his scenes for the production of the movie to be pushed back.

Zack Snyder, who helmed "Man of Steel," will also direct this film. Production on the film will begin during the second half of the year. Other cast members returning to the film include Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Diane Lane as Martha Kent. Actress Gal Gadot will join the cast as Wonder Woman.

The still untitled film has been moved out of an action movie blockbuster summer which will also include "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "Ant-Man," but the film will now be released on the same day as a yet to be announced Marvel film and "X-Men: Apocalypse." The highly anticipated film will serve as a sequel to "Man of Steel" and pave the way for more DC Comics characters to make it to the big screen.
