Marvel News Update - GOTG Reshoots, Captain America 3 Pitted Against Batman Vs Superman
- Captain America 3 will be released on same date as Batman vs Superman, May 6th 2016
Riding high on the back of a record box-office performance by Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel announced that the third installment of Captain America has been pencilled in for the same release date as Warner Bros' Batman vs Superman. The May 6th 2016 release slot had been picked up by Warner Bros. after Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel was pushed back from its initial 2015 release. But now it would appear that a bullish Marvel are happy to play a game of release date chicken with their comic book rivals, DC.
While this is exactly the sort of head to head match-up comic book fans want to see, it remains unclear whether or not both Marvel and DC will stick to their guns. While a lot can change over the course of a blockbuster summer, it is hard to believe that Zack Snyder and co. will want to risk their prize asset against what will be, by then at least, a rampant Marvel universe that would have been bolstered by Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015. Indeed, Warner Bros. execs have previously stated that there still remain a couple of options in terms of alternative release date, and surely losing face will seem like a satisfactory sacrifice for securing box-office dollars.
