That's possible, provided that Avatar 2
will likely need two years of post-production time alone (if they do start shooting early next year). But I wouldn't count against WB doing a third Sherlock Holmes
for Dec '15 instead. I honestly don't see the problem with a June or July 2015 date for MOS 2 though. Superman as a viable franchise has been restored... I think it'll do fine sandwiched in between.
But you look at a film like The Hunger Games
... it made an insane
amount of money in the spring time (March 23). $152M opening weekend, and a $408M domestic cume. You'd expect that from a second film in an established franchise in the summertime, not the first entry in springtime.
I don't know if Snyder has the pull now to make MOS 2 a spring '15 release like his previous pre-MOS films were, but if he does... wouldn't surprise me in the least.
