2016 Is “Capt. America 3” vs “Bat vs Supes”

It looks like it will be Captain America who will be taking on “Batman and Superman” in May 2016.

THR reports that the third “Captain America” film is the movie being lined up for the May 6th 2016 release slot by Marvel, the same day that Warners’ rival “Batman vs. Superman” project hits screens.

This is already being touted as the biggest superhero box office showdown in history, though shooting schedules and production issues could always have an impact on the date.

While Marvel staked out the date first and is sticking to it for now, don’t be surprised if “Captain America 3” is moved up a few months earlier should “Winter Soldier” perform strongly in its early April bow this year.
