‘Man of Steel’ Moved to Summer 2013


While production for the Superman Reboot — titled “Man of Steel” — has begun, it looks like we will have to wait longer than expected to see the return of the Man of Tomorrow.

Warner Bros. has released an official statement that the new release date for the movie will be June 14, 2013, rather than Christmas 2012.

Of course, this decision has already brought up questions about what caused Warner Bros. to do this. My theory is that it has definitely something to do with the on-going lawsuit regarding the Superman rights. There have also been reports that the script is getting rewritten, which could also be a possible reason to this delay. In addition, maybe the reboot that DC Comics is launching has affected the production as well.

Hopefully, we will get some answers as to why we will be waiting until 2013 to see the last son of Krypton rise once again, perhaps at Comic-Con this week.

“Man of Steel” will be out June 14, 2013 — in the meantime, let me know what your thoughts are regarding the delay by hitting with your comments to the right.

    Hopefully, the movie will be better due to the postponement.

    I’m surprised they’re opening it in the same slot that Green Lantern bombed on. Not a superstitious lot, apparently. I’m game for this movie, so I hope it works out better for DC in 2013.

    Been taking the wait-and-see approach with this film but it’s difficult when all you hear about MoS is news on delays to problems with the script. I do hope with the extra time that they can resolved these problems and make a great Superman film.

    I don’t see this as a issue/problem at all. Movies releases move up/down all the time. Plus the dec 12 date was never locked. The good this is though more time for filming and reshoots/post work. Also moves it away from hobbit/bond and what ever big holiday films.

    Zack Snyder is an idiot hiring a small, English guy for the role of Superman, which is wrong, dude.
    They should have put Tom Welling in it. I don’t care what other people say, he’s earned the right and he deserves the credit.

    Superman is suppose to be a great American DC icon that fights for truth, justice and freedom. NOT for the queen and tea!!!!! And Zack Snyder’s had a series of big movie flops, including sucker punch!!!!
