The new 'Batman vs Superman' will surely be an epic sequel to 2013's 'Man Of Steel' but fans will have to wait a little longer to see the two superheroes come face to face. Plans for the two DC Comic characters to face off was revealed by director Zack Synder at last year's comic-con in July (2013).

The original date was scheduled for nearly a year earlier on July 17th 2015.

The reason or the delay is "to allow "the filmmakers time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story," the studio said.

Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, president of Warner Bros. Pictures' international distribution, also added, "We know that there is already great anticipation building for the next super hero film from Zack Snyder, and we are equally eager to see what he has in store for Superman and Batman as they share the big screen for the first time ever."

British actor Henry Cavill will return and reprise the role of 'Superman' in which he first portrayed in 'Man Of Steel', released in June. The first film of the rebooted franchise has grossed $668 million worldwide and $291 million domestically, making it the fourth highest grossing film of 2013.

Ben Affleck will taking responsibility of following Christian Bale's performance as 'Batman' in the 'Dark Knight' trilogy. Since the 41 year-old was cast as the new Batman,' the public have voiced their disagreement with Affleck playing the role.

Amy Adams will also be reprising her role of 'Lois Lane' and Israeli model/actress Gal Godat will play the superhero 'Wonder Women'.
