One of the the most anticipated films of 2015 was Batman VS Superman. Was. Production on the Man of Steel sequel has been delayed for 10 months. Filming was due to start in February 2014 and the film was due for release in the summer of 2015. Rumors are that Ben Affleck has suffered a leg injury and this has caused filming to be delayed. The delay has also been put down to the trouble with casting and that people may end up getting recast due to scheduling conflicts. Or maybe this is to work around the scheduling conflicts.
The current rumors floating around on casting are that the villains of the film will be Lex Luthor and Doomsday. Bryan Cranston, Mark Strong and recently Joaquin Phoenix have been rumored for the role. For Doomsday Jason Mamoa was rumored but has denied involvement and recently it was announced that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is going to appear in the film and would be playing Doomsday.
Another rumor is that Synder needs more time to complete his vision and the film will be released in 2016.There were rumors a few days ago that stated that this film and the Justice League movie would shoot back to back. This delay may allow that to happen. Maybe this is just rumors for now we just have to wait and see.
All of these could be true or they could be exaggerated. I think that Batman VS Superman will now not be released until 2016 and it will likely shoot back to back with the planned Justice League movie which is scheduled for 2017 but that has not been set in stone.
How do you feel about the delay? Who would you recast? Please comment and thanks for reading.
