BvS To Open a Month and a Week Earlier Posted by: Bill "Jett" Ramey (Follow @BATMANONFILM)

And I'm not not talking about Barbara Eden either.
Per THE WRAP, Warner Bros. is moving the release of BATMAN v SUPERMAN (again) a month and week eailer to March 25, 2016. This will, of course, make sure that BvS and CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 do not open the same weekend - which is a very good thing for both films and the entire comic book movie genre.
Short op-ed: I have no issue with Warner Bros. moving the release date...again. However, I am kinda bummed that's it's not going to be considered a "Summer Tentpole Release." That's a petty criticism - I know - but that's just how I feel. I guess I'm just used to Batman on film hitting the big screen in either June or July during the Summer. I'll get over it.
Also, Warner Bros. announced the release dates for several DC-based film - though none of them have a title. Check it out...
* Untitled DC Film - 08/05/16
* Untitled DC Film - 06/23/17
*Untitled DC Film - 11/17/17
* Untitled DC Film - 03/23/18
* Untitled DC Film - 07/27/18
* Untitled WB Event Film - 11/16/18
* Untitled DC Film - 04/05/19
* Untitled DC Film - 06/14/19
* Untitled DC Film - 04/03/20
* Untitled DC Film - 06/19/20
* Untitled WB Event Film - 11/20/20
Among these releases will be a Shazam/Black Adam movie starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (YES! And have him play both Capt. Marvel and Black Adam!), a Sandman movie with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as well as solo Wonder Woman and Aquaman films starring Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa respectively. If I had to guess, JUSTICE LEAGUE is what's coming on November 11, 2018. BUT...
What about a solo Batflick with Batfleck? Surely one of those dates - June 14, 2019 perhaps - is reserved for a new, post-"Dark Knight Trilogy" Batman film directed by Ben Affleck, right? A Batflick with Batfleck directed by Affleck - I just like the way that sounds!
So what do y'all think about all of this? Scroll down and comment while I go update my damn BvS countdown...again!
