‘Captain America 3’ Will Begin The Marvel vs. DC Comic Book Movie War
  |  @   |  

The quest for comic book movie dominance has shifted ever so slightly towards Marvel Studios’ favor, and with the studio showing no signs of slowing down, Warner Brothers with DC Comics, Sony with The Amazing Spider-Man, and Fox with X-Men and Fantastic Four are looking to replicate the same success by creating their own cinematic universes. But with the MCU being the clear frontrunner, it was only a matter of time before we would see a Marvel vs. DC.

No, not in terms of adaptation, but in terms of box office dominance. Never before have the two rivaling comic book houses shared the same release date, but come May 6, 2016, that will all change. Marvel has just announced that they will be releasing Captain America 3 on the same day that WB is planning to release Batman vs. Superman.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the May 6, 2016 date was set prior to WB’s change of Batman vs. Superman‘s release. It was also one of the Marvel Mystery Movies for Phase 3, which will be opened by Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man.

Anthony and Joe Russo will return to direct, as Captain America will face a whole new threat, with returning characters to help or hurt him along the way. The Russo brothers wouldn’t spill any major details as to what we could see, but they told Collider that the reaction to Captain America: The Winter Soldier could guide the direction of Captain America 3. Which makes a lot of sense actually. Having seen the movie, it should be interesting how they up the ante.

Odds are Batman vs. Superman will have to be moved once again. HeyUGuysUK reports that is the case as WB is now eying to release the film one week earlier in April. There is no confirmation of this at this time, but I find it hard to believe that WB would stick around and make a huge gamble to see who would come out on top of the May 6, 2016 weekend.

What are your thoughts? If either studio decided to stick with the date, which film would you likely see first?

  1. Captain America 3. Batman vs superman will be terrible and in no comparison to any marvel movie. In box office sales, and in a popularity contest, Marvel’s Captain America will win.
