(CBR) Nothing causes fan panic like an anticipated film having its release delayed. As soon as the announcement that Warner Bros. has pushed back director Zack Snyder's "Batman Vs. Superman" film by nearly a full calendar year hit the Internet, fans began digging the grave for the "Man of Steel" sequel.

Well, it's a little early to put down a deposit on a plot just yet -- there could be some very good reasons the film was postponed. In fact, it may be a blessing that Snyder and writer David Goyer find themselves with more time to make sure the film will be as good as it can possibly can be. From more time to really put a polish on the final script to working out the best possible corporate synergy strategies and more, we explain why shifting to 2016 looks like a pretty sharp move.
