According to Epoch Times on Monday, Zack Snyder's "Batman vs. Superman" could get an overseas early release date and currently DC Comics is head-to-head with Marvel Studios with an identical release date in the United States for the year 2016. At this point, Marvel has quite overshadowed its competitor by planning films as far as 2028 and shows no signs of budging from the competitive scheduled release of "Captain America 3".
The UK Film schedule had made an announcement via the UK Film Distributor's Association that "Batman vs. Superman" is seen to be released on April 29, 2016 which will be one week away from the United States showing. At this point the title of the film is something they are adhering to for now, but nothing official yet on the true name of the movie.
Snyder also revealed how Batman came to be involved with the "Man of Steel" sequel. At first, the idea of Bruce Wayne being in the film wasn't something he considered at all until he mentioned it at one of his meetings. He basically entertained how cool it would be to have the wealthy playboy and League of Assassins-trained Dark Knight character to be in the film. Snyder thought that somehow Kryptonite made its way to Bruce somehow at his mansion in a rather subtle fashion at the end of "Batman vs. Superman".
At this time, Diane Lane, who played Martha Kent in the first film, did tell reporters that she had just gotten back from Michigan after having participated in some camera tests where she actually felt the material of the Superman outfit. However, she said she jested and said she didn't follow the "feel" test in touching the Batman material. Cinematography director Larry Fong posted a blurred image of said test.
"Batman vs. Superman" is currently scheduled to be released on May 6, 2016.
