Because nobody will ever get sick of superhero movies, Marvel Comics has announced that the Russo Brothers will be directing the third Captain America movie—my review of the second Captain America is right here—and the studio will be releasing it on May 6, 2016. The problem is, that's the date that Warner Brothers has marked out for Batman Vs. Superman, the sequel to Man of Steel. Alex Maidy at JoBlo.com writes:
Warner Bros president of domestic distribution, Dan Fellman, made the following statement to Bloomberg news regarding Marvel's announcement.
It doesn’t make a lot of sense for two huge superhero films to open on the same date but there is a lot of time between now and [May 6, 2016). However at this time, we are not considering a change of date for Batman vs. Superman."
Of course one of these movies will flinch. I bet that Batman vs. Superman, which is about to begin filming, will move to an earlier slot in April. But let's pretend that Marvel and DC refuse to move, and that these movies both open on May 6th. Which one do you go see on opening weekend? What do you do, hotshot? What do you do?
