So yeah, this was pretty much us after hearing production on the Man of Steel sequel has been delayed and the film will now be released on May 6, 2016. That is a full TWO. YEARS. FROM. MAY. Read the full press release. After we recovered from the sudden announcement (it's not like we have a choice), we decided to look at the positives of the still developing story. This tweet from Warner Bros. producer Daniel Alter eased our anxiety over the delay. He is not involved with the project, but as you can imagine, he does hear things.
Everyone needs to calm down. #BatmanVsSuperman was a reaction to various factors . Now it's evolving beyond that. New developments..
So let's look at what it means for Henry, now that Man of Steel 2 has been pushed back. First off, more prep time for Superman in the gym. And that can't be a bad thing right?
We also saw some of the reaction on twitter, where fans are slowly embracing the reality of a May, 2016 release.

Now to the tentative silver linings. When Henry wrapped The Man from U.N.C.L.E. last November, word was that the film would be released at the end of this year. We're still hoping that's the case, but with a production delay on the Man of Steel sequel, we are wondering how/if that could affect the release/promo plan for U.N.C.L.E. - Guess we'll just have to wait for official word.
The other exciting possibility, is that barring rumored back-to-back filming plans with Batman vs. Superman & the Justice League, Henry might have some free time next year to potentially take on other projects. No matter what happens we know the wait will be worth it, because after all.. this is Superman we're talking about. You have our full support!
