'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' could be split into two films

Two blockbusters instead of one? Warner need to pay the bills too, you know.

Warner Bros. certainly has form in the area of splitting films unnecessarily, as seen with 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows', and 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' which is currently steaming it's way to a billion dollars at the international box office, so today's news that the upcoming sequel to 'Man of Steel' might be split into two film releases does have more than a whiff of authenticity about it.

Currently pegged for a March 25, 2016 release date, FlickeringMyth is reporting that Warner are poised to announce that the Superman sequel, which has morphed into a trojan horse to launch the Justice League as a fully fledged franchise, will be split into two films - the first ' Batman v Superman Part I: Enter the Knight' coming on October 23rd 2015, with 'Batman v Superman Part II: Dawn of Justice' to be released on the original release date of March 25th 2016.

With a theatrical teaser attached to next month's release of the Wachowski's 'Jupiter Rising', it won't be long before this rumour is confirmed either way - but I'd put my money on happening.
