Besides the title there are other, discreet pieces of interesting information on Warner Bros. official ‘production commences’ announcement for the Batman Superman film.
There’s the information about Holly Hunter’s role, which they say has been newly created for the film.
There’s the writing credit, which goes to Argo’s Chris Terrio “from a screenplay by David S. Goyer.”
There’s the shooting location of the South Pacific, which suggests, perhaps, scenes on Paradise Island.
There’s the promise of a global release on May 6th, 2016, which cuts against previous word of a UK opening on April 29th.
There’s the lack of credits for any creators outside of Batman, Superman or Wonder Woman in this final block:
Based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, Batman characters created by Bob Kane, and Wonder Woman created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment
Though, of course, they can namecheck the creators of Aquaman and Cyborg and Green Lantern and whoever else later on.
So, we’ve learned quite a lot really. And now, the paparazzi shots should start in earnest…
