Superman movie order
The "Man of Steel" sequel is being pushed back from its July 17, 2015 release date to summer 2016.
That's an entire 10 months you'll have to wait to see Batman and the son of Krypton on screen together for the first time.
That's not good news, hinting at troubles behind-the-scenes of the new film.
Joining Henry Cavill as Superman will be Ben Affleck as the new Caped Crusader. "Man of Steel" director Zack Snyder is back working on the film with screenwriter David S. Goyer who wrote "The Dark Knight" trilogy.
The DC superheroes will now go head-to-head with an untitled Marvel movie expected to open the same weekend May 6, 2016. While a Peter Pan film will take the coveted July release date next year in its place.
Before, the "Batman/Superman" film was set to open more than two months after the "Avengers" sequel, giving audiences some breathing room from a big superhero flick.
Is it a smart scheduling choice? Sure. Historically, blockbuster films don't come out until the beginning of the summer season and the studio doesn't want to make fanboys wait an entire year for the film.
The third weekend of July has proven successful again and again Warner Bros. with the release of previous Batman installments from director Christopher Nolan.
And now both Disney and Warner Bros.' films will be vying for the same audience come May 2016.
If one or the other film opened on any other weekend, each film would easily win the box-office weekend. Instead, in some cases, they'll be forcing fans to choose between team DC Comics and Marvel. Although this could lead to a record box-office weekend, it may also mean lower first-weekend grosses for both films.
We'd be surprised if both Disney and Warner Bros. released a big tentpole on the same day.
If anything, don't expect Disney to move their untitled film (at least if its a sequel to an already established franchise). That first weekend in May has worked for them with both "The Avengers" and "Iron Man 3" earning more than $1 billion at theaters.
