Warner Bros. have pushed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s release date to March 25, 2016 from its original release to avoid stout competition with Marvel’s Captain America 3.

After tons of speculation that Warner Bros. wasn’t willing to flinch, they’ve now officially moved Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to March 25, 2016. The film was originally set to be released on May 6, 2016, but then Marvel announced that Captain America 3 would share the same release date.

Fans have been curious as to whether Warner Bros. would rethink their release date at the sight of Marvel challenging them with one of their stout superhero franchises, but it wasn’t likely due to the film already starting production. But it looks like WB has decided to switch their release date afterall.

What a move by Warner Bros., which currently has Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice filming in Detroit with our first look at Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne landing online today. The studio clearly felt the need to distance itself from Captain America 3, which is expected to be a monster hit.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier broke April’s box office record when it hit theaters on April 4. The film pulled in $95M during its opening weekend and went on to take in $713 million worldwide.

Warner Bros. have also announced nine new untitled DC films, which can be found below in their lineup which includes dates all the way until 2020.

Untitled DC Film – 08/05/16

Untitled DC Film – 06/23/17

Untitled DC Film – 11/17/17

Untitled DC Film – 03/23/18

Untitled DC Film – 07/27/18

Untitled DC Film – 04/05/19

Untitled DC Film – 06/14/19

Untitled DC Film – 04/03/20

Untitled DC Film – 06/19/20

While it’s not entirely surprising that the studio has decided to move Batman v Superman’s release date up to March 25, Marvel’s recent success with Guardians of the Galaxy proves that releasing a film during the same weekend as them could potentially kill a film’s box office. But it could have been just as bad for Marvel if WB would have kept Batman v Superman at its original date.

It always seemed like either Marvel or Warner Bros. would move their respective films due to an overcrowded weekend, but Marvel had released a statement several months ago reiterating that they’d be sticking to their date. “Following the record-breaking premiere of Marvel’s ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ this past weekend, the First Avenger will jump into his next big screen solo adventure in just a little more than two years on May 6, 2016!”

Marvel showed no sign that they were willing to move Captain America 3, and that could be the reason that we’re finally seeing Warner Bros. move up Batman v Superman’s release date. The good news is we’ll be getting Batman v Superman a bit earlier than expected.

It’s a significant adjustment though, with WB moving the Man of Steel sequel up by over five weeks. This also makes it land on the same release date as Eddie Murphy’s Beverly Hills Cop 4, but that’s certainly a less imposing film to open against.

Of interest to our readers: Batman v Superman will be released one week after Allegiant, Part 1.

Let us know what you think of Warner Bros. shifting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s release date to March 25, 2016 to avoid Marvel’s Captain America 3.

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.

After filing for divorce from Johnny Depp earlier this week, Amber Heard has now filed a restraining order against the actor after alleged domestic abuse.

TMZ reports Heard went into a Los Angeles courtroom this morning to file the restraining order and shared photos of physical abuse by Johnny Depp, including bruises from this past weekend. “Heard claims after he allegedly hit her he offered her money to stay quiet, but instead she filed for divorce first thing Monday morning,” TMZ says. Heard reportedly “has video of one of the beatings.” TMZ’s report includes a graphic photo of the bruises the actress received from Depp.

Update: The restraining order has been granted.

Heard says she’s been physically assaulted “various times during their marriage,” according to TMZ, and believes there’s “an immediate threat of harm.” Hence the restraining order.

The report adds, “We’re told cops told Amber they would find Johnny and arrest him if she gave a statement about the alleged violence, but she refused. Officers told her if she changed her mind she could call them. As far as we know, she has not gone back to the cops.”

Johnny Depp is currently in the middle of promoting Alice Through the Looking Glass, which opens in theaters Friday.

Depp and Heard married last year after three years of dating. A photo of the couple at this year’s Grammy Awards is below.
