So I want to apologize for being a few days late with this news but yeah the big scoop is that Warner Brothers Pictures has locked nine dates that will continue what they are going to be presenting in the 2016 film “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice”. That film was originally supposed to be released in May of 2016 but they moved it up a couple of months to March which many are saying was to avoid competing with Marvel Studios release of “Captain America 3”.
As you already know, “Batman v. Superman” stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill and will essentially be the second film in their own cinematic universe. If one can trust these dates and their mystery films, it looks like we will be getting two new DC superhero films a year all the way up until 2020 which is pretty cool. If Marvel Studios keeps putting out two to three films a year then there has never been a better time to be a geek. Below are the newly announced dates for the as yet undisclosed films that will occupy the slots.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m sorry but I am laughing over here because as much as the news about the possibility of nine more superhero films is coming to some sort of launching point is awesome, it seems kind of ridiculous to make a big deal out of dates alone with no idea about a film. Maybe it comes from the immediate success that Marvel’s “Guardians Of The Galaxy” seems to be finding. That film opened up just over a week ago and people are raving about it. I have not yet seen it but its my plan over the coming days for sure since I don’t want to risk any spoilers about it. Of course this film follows the earlier in the year release of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” which was incredible. Warner really has to step up their game with these films because Marvel is already riding high on entertaining us with this stuff. Hopefully we shall see a trailer for this “BvS” film soon enough. So let’s be hopeful for what will fill all of these slows. I will assume that there are single films focused on various Justice League members. What films do you hope that Warner Brothers Pictures offers up with these heroes? Let me know in the comments below.
