Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that the release of Zack Snyder’s working titled, Batman vs. Superman film has been moved from a July 17, 2015 release to May 6, 2016, the same date as a yet-to-be-titled Marvel studios film.

According to the studio this will give “the filmmakers time to realize fully their vision, given the complete visual nature of the story. The decision was made following the shift of the start of production to second quarter of this year.”

The announcement was made by Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President, International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.
