All good with me as long as it makes the best, most entertaining movie.

Principal shooting is scheduled to begin next month. I wonder if this delays that as well?

If Afleck is going to drop out of either project, he's going to have to make a decision soon. If he signed on for the directing gig before he took the Batman role he might have to drop out of MoS 2.

Somebody is going to blink on that May 2016 date. I'm interested to see who.

WB trying to push their way in into what has been traditionally a Marvel movie date.

Marvel is going to have to blink unless they go big, like Dr Strange with Johnny Depp attached for example. Or if GOTG is as big as I hope maybe a sequel to that

kinetoscope can't say we heard it from you first when that rumor was already being circulated by another site for a week

 Once again, saying one thing then doing another only lessens your credibility

 Wiseguy.. guess I should have said it sooner... hadn't read it anywhere else. Oh well, you heard it here second or third, or way later

Well personnally this is the best news I have heard since Ben Affleck's casting and Chris Terrio's introduction into the screenwriting aspect of this Man of Steel 'sequel'. I am sure all of them (Snyder, Terrio, Affleck and WB) got together to really discuss the ideas behind the planned sequel and inevitant future of the DC franchise as far as live action film.

Something along the lines of "To fully realize their vision" is one of the only few things I will accept when it comes to film delays. That to me sounds like they are actually taking the material seriously. With a film like this, they need to be very precise and careful with the script and the material set up before hand (being Man of Steel). Even if it was mixed between fans, they cannot undo what has been done. I actually believe Snyder can do this.. I've personnally found his films to be exceptional; within his own caliber.

Now I want to see the Bat suit.. lol Kevin Smith and Jennifer Garner have praised the suit so far (which I think will be black and grey THANK YOU). Garner described it as tight.. so ttake that as you will, but to me IMO it def hints to a more latex/fabric- like suit.

Anyone who thinks that DC/Warners is "competing" with Disney/Marvel needs to keep up with current events a little better.  That race is over, boys and girls.  Marvel won.  For years, we all wanted to see a big, superhero team-up film.  We all wanted to see comics brought to film and done RIGHT.  DC made a few efforts that were decent, but were never quite right.  As time has gone on, they still do OKAY, but always end up shooting themselves in the foot (e.g. Superman Returns, Dark Knight Rises, and Man of Steel).  Meanwhile, Marvel bided their time, and then got the cast right, the script right, and, most importantly of all they PLANNED AHEAD.  Iron Man hit, and it was a blow to DC, showing that a film that was original while still remaining loyal to the source material and the heart of the character, and keeping the action level high would do gangbusters,  Then you had IM 2, Thor, Captain America, even The Incredible Hulk - all films that showed what a comic film done right would look like.  But that wasn't enough.  While DC still fiddle-fucked around with Batman villains that used silly voice modulators, looked nothing like the comic versions, a Superman that kills, and sidekicks that show up to skip being a sidekick and take over for the early retirement of the hero - Marvel took it to the next level and OWNED the theaters and our hearts with a team-up film for the ages.  No half-ass X-Men that should've used the words "loosely inspired by the Marvel comics" in the opening credits, "Avengers" dominated in ways that we could have only dreamed of 10 years ago, and not even held such dreams 20 years ago.

So, go ahead and stall longer Warners.  Go ahead and keep working that script DC.  I'm sure that when we see the Manslaughter of Steel and Bat-Daredevil team up (JUST THE TWO OF THEM, MIND YOU!  NOT EVEN A COMPLETE JUSTICE LEAGUE YET!) in 2016, we won't all just nod and smile, watch the film and go, "Meh.  They're getting there.  Another 20 years of this and we might see a forgettable JLA film."  All while Marvel will still be blowing our socks off with Avengers 2 and even Avengers 3, not to mention all of their Phase 3 projects, before we see the JLA.

Hey Marvel, how does DC's lunch taste?

 I still have a hard time understanding this mentality of "You lose, DC!!! HA HA HA HA!!!!"

Sheesh - the only people who lose, if these comic films are a bust, are us fans... I hope that ALL of these DC and Marvel movies are a smashing succcess and guess what? - NEITHER will harm nor tarnish each other, it will only make for much better, comic based films in the future.

Get a grip, people!

@MOMITCHELL7 I agree 110% about the fans being the ones at loss.

I won't lie I had my gripes against Marvel for a while, for being too family friendly and blah blah.. but that was only because that isn't what I want from a comicbook film.

But Phase II (other than Iron Man 3 IMO) is looking pretty good. The stories of the New York aftermath are very interesting. So now that all the origin stuff is out of the way, I can appreciate the films for what they are. I think Thor 2 was GREAT. Winter Soldier looks solid as hell and I love sci-fi, so GoTG is looking pretty good to me. The concept art has been a pleasure to look at.
