(CALIFORNIA) – On Wednesday, after realizing that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has cashed a massive success with over $94 million last week, Warner Bros. has declared that they will move up the release date for Batman vs. Superman (Dawn of Justice) to 25 March, 2016, hence avoiding a big clash with Marvel’s upcoming Captain America 3. Previously, Batman vs. Superman was being released against Captain America 3 on 6 May, 2016.
However, it was found out that Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and Flash would all get their solo movies following the release of Batman vs. Superman, with the scheduled Justice League. The most surprising part is that just after the five months of Batman vs. Superman hitting the theaters, one more DC superhero movie might be released. It could be the frequently discussed ‘Shazam‘ movie.
Kevin Feige, Marvel’s President, was inquired about the potential for a clash between Captain America 3 and Batman vs. Superman and he stayed steadfast saying they are not going to move their date.
He told that, “We are doing what we’ve always done, which is sticking to our plan and sticking to our vision for the movies going forward and we have a very large vision that we’re working on for Cap 3 and for all the “threes” movies and just because another movie plops down onto one of ours doesn’t mean we are going to alter that. Maybe we should, but we’re not going to.”
The Director of Batman vs. Superman, Zack Snyder, never spoke out a single word on this controversy. Marvel opened its Guardians of the Galaxy with USD 90+ millions and can certainly do bigger with Captain America 3 in 2016.
Batman vs. Superman is being filmed in Detroit with cast Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, and some other familiar cast members from Man of Steel. Captain America 3 is yet to start the production procedure.
