Star Wars: Episode VII Might Take On Batman Vs. Superman Because of Harrison Ford Injury



Back in April, Disney Chairman Alan Horn revealed that Disney is considering moving the release dates for their Star Wars films to May release dates, which has been the norm for the previous Star Wars movies.

Horn also hinted Disney might move the release date for Captain America 3 away from the May 6, 2016 release, which is shared with Batman Vs. Superman.

This led to speculation that Disney might be considering sticking Star Wars: Episode VII against Batman Vs. Superman.

Now that possibility is looking more likely as a new report is stating Star Wars: Episode VII could be delayed because of the broken leg that Harrison Ford suffered during an accident on set.

Jedi News is reporting an emergency meeting has been called by Disney at Pine Wood Studios in the UK. Reportedly, Harrison Ford’s role in Star Wars: Episode VII is major, and it’s been stated that Ford will take two months to recover. Now it’s reportedly being debated what to do about the injury. It’s said the script could be rewritten and production could cease, but something definitely has to be done to accommodate Harrison Ford’s delay.

It is noted the mention of a delay in production and/or release date is to be taken as rumor.

“Star Wars: Episode VII” has a December 18, 2015 release.
