Yesterday, we reported that the first trailer for Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated DC Comics superhero adventure Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released next month, attached to prints of Jupiter Ascending, in theaters on February 6. While the trailer premiere date has yet to be confirmed, another rumor has surfaced today, stemming from an image reportedly taken from the first Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer. It reveals the movie will actually be split into two parts. The first part, entitled Batman v Superman: Enter the Knight will reportedly hit theaters on October 23, 2015, with the second part, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, arriving on the previously-announced release date of March 25, 2016.
Aint It Cool News discovered the image, which first surfaced on Imgur earlier today. But it hasn't been confirmed as authentic at this time. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice wrapped principal photography just over a month ago, and it seems unrealistic that a decision to split a massive, highly-anticipated movie in two would be made after just one month of post-production. Unless, of course, this was Warner Bros.' plan all along, and we're only just hearing about it now. There were earlier rumors that both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League were going to be shot back-to-back, but that was before it was revealed Justice League itself will be a two-part movie.
If, in fact, Batman v Superman: Enter the Knight does hit theaters on October 23, 2015, it will go up against Universal's Jem and the Holograms and Lionsgate's The Last Witch Hunter. Do you think this image is real? Check it out below, and chime in with your thoughts below.
