Could the JUSTICE LEAGUE Release Date Come Soon After BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE?

     August 8, 2014

The choice to uproot Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from its original May 6, 2016 date and put it back down in the March 25, 2016 slot could be a smart play.  Going up against Captain America 3 wouldn’t have been good for either movie, and in 2012, The Hunger Games proved that March could be a lucrative spot.  However, Warner Bros. also made another big release date announcement that’s a far riskier move – it announced dates for nine untitled DC films, essentially trying to set up a cinematic universe akin to what Marvel’s got going on right now.

So far, minus Batman v Superman, we don’t know much about what DC and Warner Bros. have coming up and how they’re planning to pull this off, but those details might emerge sooner than you think.  In fact, there’s even a chance we’ll get the Justice League release date sooner, too!  Hit the jump for more.

ben-affleck-batman-v-superman-dawn-of-justiceIn an article about the big Batman v Superman move over at EW, Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman said that we will find out what some of those untitled DC films are later this month and, as paraphrased by EW, “that the first real Justice League adventure might be closer than you think.”  The outlet then suggests that Warner Bros. could make use of the Batman v Superman hype by quickly following it up with a sequel that would introduce more classic characters fast.  Fellman then replied:

“While it hasn’t been officially announced, I think it’s a pretty good bet.”

The studio does have a June 23, 2017 date on their list so perhaps there is a chance that Justice League could get it.  Considering Marvel is so far along at this point, having such a short span of time between movies could actually help DC and Warner Bros. get the jumpstart they’ll need to make this ambitious schedule work.
