Superman/Batman Movie Pushed Back to 2016
It is interesting that the DC Comics film would claim a spot in the first weekend of May in 2016, since that first slot of the summer movie season has been claimed by a Marvel Comics film for the past several years. Ever since the first "Iron Man" opened on May 2, 2008, there as been a Marvel-related film in the first weekend of May. Marvel had announced plans to open a film on May 6, 2016 back in June of last year, but they have not yet confirmed which of their characters would be featured in it (the mystical "Dr. Strange" has long been rumored as a possibility). It remains to be seen if Marvel will steer clear of their DC rivals and change their release plans as well, or if we'll see a real comic-book showdown in cinemas that weekend.
