It's official: the Batman Vs Superman movie has been put back 10 months to summer 2016...

Rumours have sprung up over the past day or two of an injury to Ben Affleck, that was threatening to put back production on Zack Snyder's thus far not officially titled Batman Vs Superman.

Well, we're still unclear regarding the truth of any injury to Affleck, but we do now know officially that Batman Vs Superman has been put back to 2016. It's moved from its original July 17th 2015 date to May 6th 2016. The official statement from Warner Bros declared that this is to allow "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".

It's the latest blockbuster to move away from the once crowded summer 2015 battleground - the likes of Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 and Independence Day 2 have long since scooted to 2016 - although Warner Bros has moved another of its films into that July 2015 date. Joe Wright's Peter Pan movie, Pan, will now be out on July 17th 2015.

More news on Batman Vs Superman as we hear it. It's new release date, as it happens, puts it head to head with a thus-far unrevealed Marvel movie. That should be fun...
