There’s been a ton of news and rumors out about Avengers: Age of Ultron, Batman V Superman and other Superhero movies… INCLUDING NEW RELEASE DATES. Then there’s the conjectures, rumors and news below could be considered movie spoilers… if they’re correct. Tread lightly my dear readers if you don’t want to have spoilers in your head. (I also toss in the Star Wars movies release dates, to boot in the list at the bottom of this piece… so if you want to skip the “spoilers” then jump ahead.)
First up is that principal photography has come to an end for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Now it’s down to editing, post-processing and final touches and extra surprise scenes to be filmed now, leading up to the May 1st, 2015 release date.
We know that Ultron will be the end result of Tony Stark tinkering and trying to make the better guardian of good and justice, except, he goes bonkers. He, being Ultron, played by James Spader.
And the threat that Ultron presents seems pretty devastating, judging from the marketing pic released recently.
Guardians of the Galaxy was a surprise hit with movie-goers, feeling like this generation’s new Star Wars franchise.
On the DC side of things, the thematic outlines of Batman V Superman include the “rumors” that Jason Momoa has landed the role of Aquaman. (That’s awesome news for Stargate/Game of Thrones fans.)
Other rumors indicate there may be an anti-Superman vibe in the film, considering all the damage he allowed to take place while tackling his fellow Kryptonians.
More vapor facts say that Batman will be in his fifties.
And like Aquaman and Wonder Woman, has been doing most of his work behind the scenes and less in the headlines. But with the troubles that Superman might be seeing, they may pull together to show solidarity, saying, hey, Supes isn’t the only meta-human.
But these are all conjectures and rumor out there. We will see how it really goes, come March 25th, 2016. (Unless they move the release date once again.)
Marvel, DC and Star Wars Release Dates
They’ve moved the release date of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, to not compete with Marvel’s Captain America 3, coming out the following week.
Does this mean they don’t trust their product? Christopher Nolan helmed (produced) Man of Steel, but he’s not behind this next film. The Snyders are. Zack Snyder directs, his wife produces.
I’m hoping it is a good move. We will see.
Of late, Warner Bros and DC officially announced a slew of movie release dates over the next few years. Combining their announcement with Marvel’s and Fox’s schedules, we have a boat load of genre hero movies coming at fans.
Are these too many movies for both studios or will they still be able to maintain consistency and quality? Marvel just proved to many that pulling a new title out of their closet and tossing it out there was a smart move. (Guardians…) But what else do they have for fans.
