‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ release date changed to March 2016

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice release date has been changed yet again! Warner Bros. just announced that the movie will now be released on March 25th, 2016. Happy birthday to me… I’ll turn 28 on that day!

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was originally scheduled for a July 17th, 2015 release but was pushed to May 6th, 2016 earlier this year. That’s the same day that Captain America 3 is scheduled to be released, and it looks like Warner Bros. wanted to move their big movie to avoid competition and maximize ticket sales.

This is the first time a Batman movie won’t be released in the summer with all of the other blockbusters. “If you have a great film, people will come no matter when it’s dated,” Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, president of Warner Bros. international distribution, told Variety. “It’s a bold move, but we’re taking it because we think it’s such a great film.”

“With so many tentpole films now there is no traditional everybody-need-to-go-in-the-summer corridor,” she continued. “Now the movie defines the corridor.”

Warner Bros. also announced 9 other untitled DC movies today. Here are their release dates:

  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – 03/25/16
  • Untitled DC Film – 08/05/16
  • Untitled DC Film – 06/23/17
  • Untitled DC Film – 11/17/17
  • Untitled DC Film – 03/23/18
  • Untitled DC Film – 07/27/18
  • Untitled DC Film – 04/05/19
  • Untitled DC Film – 06/14/19
  • Untitled DC Film – 04/03/20
  • Untitled DC Film – 06/19/20
