Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot has delayed its theatrical release by six months. Warner Bros. initially announced a December 2012 release date but on Thursday revised its release date to June 14, 2013. Snyder’s Superman will begin filming this summer. Along with Cavill, the cast includes Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner as Johnathan Kent, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Russell Crowe as Jor-El and Michael Shannon as General Zod.
The rumor at this point is that they weren’t prepared to go head to head with The Hobbit and this was the reasoning for the delay. Smart move on their part.
