As of right now, both Batman vs. Superman and Captain America 3 are due to be released on May 6, 2016. That's right - two of the biggest superhero movies ever, both planned for the same day. Marvel originally claimed this date for an unnamed movie - so DC planned their huge crossover film for the same day, expecting Marvel to blink. But with the success of The Winter Soldier, Marvel went ahead and announced that Captain America 3 would indeed be released then.
Ooo...awkward. This is our date - sorry Captain America 3.
No way, Batfleck vs. Hopeman, Marvel was savin' this spot for me.
Well, uh, technically they were just saving it for "Untitled Marvel Film." That doesn't really count.
Sure it does - now make way for Captain America 3: I'm a Better Superman Than Henry Cavill's City-Wrecking Saiyan
You're not really calling yourself that, are you?
Psh, who knows? Haven't even started writing the damn thing.
Yeah, that's sorta the thing - number 2 JUST came out - don't you think it's a little early to call a spot for the third one?
That's how Captain America 3 rolls, son. Pre-emptive strike up in this house!
But don't you know how much money you'll lose?
Are you kidding me? Have you seen the box office numbers? We got more green on us than the Hulk's dick.
Yeah, but -
Because the Hulk's dick has a lot of green on it.
Yeah, we got that. But aren't you worried about going up against me? I'm one of the most anticipated movies ever. You'll at least lose the weekend to us.
Psh, so? Marvel's got like 3 movies per year comin' out. How many DC got?
Well...2013 had Man of Steel, and Batman vs. Superman will be out in 2016.
LOL - one movie every three years?! We're making a fucking Guardians of the Galaxy movie. That shit's gonna star a raccoon and a tree. You fuckers can't even get a solo Wonder Woman movie made.
Exactly! So why are you messing with our one shot?
They want me to screw you up. We got a billion movies, and you just got one. I'm gonna fuck DC's plans harder than -
Let me guess - The Hulk's dick?
...I understood that reference.
