That’s the plan, anyway, creating the biggest superhero Box Office showdown in history. However, the shooting schedules and post-production could always impact the current blueprint.
The Batman V/S Superman stars Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill once again as Superman. It was originally supposed to hit theaters in the summer of 2015, but its release was pushed back nearly a year. There’s no doubt that Warner Brothers is hoping to replicate the blockbuster.
When promoting the upcoming sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige stated that he had no plans to move the release of Captain America 3 off the May 06, 2015 date.
He still wouldn’t reveal the identity of the film; however, insiders confirm it will indeed be Captain America 3. The world premiere of Captain America: The Winter Soldier was on March 13, 2014 in Hollywood.
Warner Brothers may have been waiting to see what the Marvel Studios title was before considering a date change for The Batman V/S Superman, if the studio blinks. There are still weekends available that summer, including the first two after Captain America 3 and The Batman V/S Superman are set to open. Zack Snyder begins shooting The Batman V/S Superman in the coming weeks.
Marvel Studios and Disney are incredibly high on Captain America 2, which opens in North America on April 04, 2104 and is garnering huge interest, according to pre-release tracking.
They believe Captain America: The Winter Soldier, with Chris Evans returning in the title role, will benefit from the same halo effect from The Avengers That Iron Man 3 and sequel Thor: The Dark World enjoyed, as well as firmly establishing Captain America: The Winter Soldier as a standalone franchise
Brothers Anthony Russo and Joe Russo who directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier are in talks to return for Captain America 3.
