‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Moves to March 2016

Warner Bros.’ “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” has moved its release date from May 6, 2016, to March 25, 2016.

The superhero hybrid, starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, was supposed to challenge “Captain America 3” during the first weekend of May, but will instead spring forward to avoid a blockbuster confrontation.

The earlier months of March and April have proven fertile ground for Hollywood tentpoles in recent years.  “The Hunger Games” and “Captain America: Winter Soldier” both opened to stellar results in March, as did several Zack Snyder-helmed films like “300,” another WB release.

Co-starring Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, “Batman v Superman” has been filming in Detroit for the past two months.

Warner Bros. also announced the release dates for nine untitled DC films on Wednesday. The studio is hoping its Justice League universe, which includes superheroes the Flash and Green Lantern, can match Marvel’s hit franchise “The Avengers” at the box office.
