2015 just got a little less crowded with the news that the superman-batmananticipated superhero team-up of Batman and Superman (aka Batman vs. Superman or Man of Steel 2 or whatever they eventually decide to call it) is moving back almost a whole year.

The movie, set to once again star Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman and to introduce Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, is now set for a May 6th 2016 release where its only competition seems to be an as-yet untitled Marvel movie. Also scheduled for release later that month as of date are two other Marvel properties, including Fox’s X-Men: Apocalypse and Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Though it seems the hot DC property may be outnumbered now, expect at least one of these Marvel titles to get the hell out of the way sooner rather than later or be at risk of being eaten alive by the hero-hungry public.

But Warner Bros isn’t letting go of that previous July 17th 2015 release date, giving it to Joe Wright’s forthcoming adaptation of Peter Pan which has Hugh Jackman attached as a villainous pirate (though it’s not, we’re told, Captain Hook. Intriguing…).

Batman vs. Superman is set to be directed by Man of Steel helmer Zack Snyder from a script by David O. Goyer (though Oscar-winning Argo writer Chris Terrio has been drafted in to do a much-welcomed polish), and will also welcome back MOS cast members Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Diane Lane as Martha Kent. Gal Gadot has recently been cast as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, which is said to be an extended cameo role leading up to an eventual Justice League movie.

In the official press release from the studio, it was commented that Batman vs. Superman‘s release date shift enables “the filmmakers time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story. The decision was made following the shift of the start of production to second quarter of this year.”

Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution, said: “We are happy to take advantage of these coveted summer dates, which are perfect for two of our biggest tentpole releases. We share the fans’ excitement to see DC Comics’ most popular figures, Superman and Batman, together on the big screen for the first time, which will now be arriving in theatres in May 2016. Peter Pan has delighted people of every generation for more than a century, so we are thrilled to bring him back to the screen next summer for today’s moviegoers.”

Meanwhile, Veronika Kwan Vandenberg (President of International Distribution) commented: “We know that there is already great anticipation building for the next Super Hero film from Zack Snyder, and we are equally eager to see what he has in store for Superman and Batman as they share the big screen for the first time ever. The summer release corridor is also perfect for Joe Wright’s ambitious new Peter Pan adventure, reimagining the ageless story of the beloved and forever-young hero for audiences worldwide.”

So, as a brief recap, Batman vs. Superman is now coming out on May 6th 2016, with Joe Wright’s Peter Pan adventure coming out in its old July 17th 2015 slot. While this means we’ll have to wait a bit longer to see the two biggest superheroes ever face off on the screen for the first time (and, even sadder, it’s going to take longer to see how Affleck does as the latest incarnation of Batman), at least they are giving the filmmakers a little more time to think things through so they can give audiences a much more satisfying movie. And at least this means it won’t be nearly as big a letdown as Man of Steel was, right? Right?…
