Looks like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice got a forward in release date, something that DC fans can look forward to. But these decisions are nor just randomly made, there is a thought process behind each and every one of them. So Kevin Tsujihara, who is now Warner CEO, came forward and explained why the anticipated film got its release date changed so many times.
If you are as much of a geek as we are, you might have kept track of the movie’s initial launch date which was announced back in 2013. Batman v Superman was announced to hit the big screens in July 2015, but then got moved to May 2016. Now it got moved to March 25th. But why? Simply because the superhero movie hype is reaching an all-time hype.
Captain America: Civil War was announced to air in the same period, so to avoid collision with this movie, Warner decided to push our most anticipated movie into March. But this affected 2015 big time for Warner. Tsujihara admitted that the transition from 2015 to 2016 wasn’t something nice to begin with because it left 2015 empty, but he thinks that it was a very good decision for the franchise.
Just to tease us a little bit more, he declared that “having seen the movie multiple times, and again last night, I’m extremely confident it was the right decision to make the movie better”. Sadly, we live in a moral, civilized world and we are law abiding citizens, thus we cannot come up with some sort of plot to infiltrate Tsujihara’s safe and see the movie ourselves. Moving on.
Batman v Superman is only going to be the second installment in the Extended DC Universe and Warner does not look like it wants to stop. Suicide Squad is coming up in next August and they announced that they want to make a clean entrance for Aquaman, more and more Batmen, Flash, Wonder Woman and they even want to make two Justice League movies.
Obviously, this is not going to be uncontested by Marvel fans, who will also be asking for the release of more and more of their own heroes. Competition makes the world go round. Either way, we have a lot to look forward to in terms of superheroes. As long as Warner can deliver the DC that we want, it is going to be a hell of a blast.
