Marvel's Not Moving Away From 'Batman vs Superman' in 2016

And the battle of wits has begun. Last June Marvel announced an untitled Marvel film was going to hit May 6th, 2016. Everything was just dandy for Marvel . Then DC decided to move their mega blockbuster Batman vs Superman from July 2015 all the way right onto their date in May.

Many assumed Marvel would steer clear of that date given that they would be going up against the biggest superheros in the past century Batman,  Superman and now Wonder Woman. While today during the press junket for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced that they aren't going anywhere:
We’re certainly keeping the date there and we’ll announce what that movie is, I assume, in the next few months.
 SlashFilm went to push Feige on when exactly. He admits it maybe during Comic Con if not before:
That would be great, I’d love nothing more than to be able to announce them all there. But if it’s ready beforehand, we’ll probably do it beforehand. If it’s not ready then, we’ll do it after.
 Many also presume that the untitled Marvel film will indeed be for Doctor Strange given that talks have begun with directors for Marvel's next pet project. But lets be honest here.....Sorcerer Supreme going up against DC's suicide.
