One of the reasons you may have decided to jump on the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge early was to obtain a free Gear VR or Gear S2. Verizon was offering these products for those that preordered one of the devices. It looks like you are going to be in for quite the wait.

Today Samsung released a statement regarding this.

Due to the high level of interest in the Gear VR promotion, delivery times for Gear VR and Gear S2 are now extending into May and potentially Summer 2016. You have the choice of submitting for the Gear VR or Gear S2 on delayed shipment or a $100 coupon code towards a purchase of any product category

Makes you wonder if they are trying to see how many people will be impatient enough to ditch the Gear S2. If you just can't wait you could order the Gear VR and possibly get it earlier with the coupon.
