Superman v Batman delayed to 2016.

Superman and Batman's big screen team-up has been delayed by almost a year, film studio Warner Bros has confirmed.

Originally scheduled for July 2015, the superhero set-to will now appear on 6 May, 2016.

A sequel to 2013's Man of Steel, the as-yet-untitled film sees Ben Affleck stepping into the Batman role, next to British actor Henry Cavill's Superman.

It was reported the delay was triggered by Affleck sustaining a leg injury, but that has been dismissed by the studio.

Instead, the release date has been pushed back to "allow the filmmakers time to realise fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story," it said.

The film has recently gained a third superhero - with Fast and Furious star Gal Gadot signed up to play Wonder Woman.
