Does this have anything to do with those Ben Affleck injury rumors? Warner Bros announced today that Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel follow-up, the Batman-Superman (-Wonder Woman, and more) film, has been delayed 10 months.

It was originally supposed to be released on July 17, 2015, but will now come out on May 6, 2016.

Here’s the official statement:

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.

Marvel has also staked out the Mary 6, 2016 date for an as yet unannounced film, so are we about to be in for a head-to-head showdown between the two rivals? They might move it, but it’s a date they’ve owned since Iron Man. Looks like DC’s just thrown down the gauntlet.

Meanwhile, Joe Wright’s Peter Pan prequel is moving into Batman-Superman’s vacated July 17, 2015 date.
