In the superhero feature film universe, this is as big as it gets. In 2016, Captain America and Batman/Superman will go head-to-head or toe-to-toe or cape-to-shield or whatever analogy you prefer as both Disney and Warner Bros have scheduled their superhero franchise films to debut on the same day that year. The third installment in the already entrenched Captain America franchise seems more likely to stay at the spot, however, while the untitled Batman/Superman flick – which has yet to debut its first film in the series – is more likely to move to another spot, probably later in the summer. Expect an announcement at the 2014 Comic Con in San Diego to probably clear the superhero air in 2016.
For now, both “Captain America 3” and an “untitled Batman/Superman film” are currently scheduled for release on May 6, 2016.
