Batman V Superman: US And China To Have Simultaneous Release Dates


It’s safe to say that avid DC fans in the United States have already begun to count down the seconds until March 25, 2016 when two of the most iconic superheroes will face off in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justce.  It seems that our friends in the Far East — China specifically — will also be lucky enough to see it with us on the same release date.  Via a tweet from ChinaBoxOffice, the highly anticipated movie will have a planned release date of March 25, 2016 in the most populous country in the world.

I’m not sure what that will do to box-office records, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Zack Snyder and company will be posting pictures of themselves rolling around in cash during opening weekend.  That is, if they even have the time.  Right after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the cast and crew is expected to continue expanding the DC Extended Universe with Justice League Part One which has a planned release date of November 17, 2017.
