"We share the fans' excitement to see DC Comics' most popular figures, Superman and Batman, together on the big screen for the first time, which will now be arriving in theatres in May 2016. Peter Pan has delighted people of every generation for more than a century, so we are thrilled to bring him back to the screen next summer for today's moviegoers," he added.

The sequel, which will reunite Batman and Superman, will see Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman. Actress Gal Gadot will be seen as Wonder Woman.

The movie will be directed by Zack Snyder.
