Kevin Feige Once Again States 'Captain America 3' Will Not Move For 'Batman v Superman'

If you think 2015 is going to be huge with Fantastic Four, Terminator: Genesis, The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Star Wars coming out all in the same year just wait until 2016. With Warcraft and X-Men: Apocalypse coming out nothing will be as big as May 6th., 2016. Still as of today a battle of the ages will commence between Marvel's Captain America 3 as well as DC's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Many bloggers and film reporters swear up and down that one company either Marvel Studios or Warner Brothers will blink and move their mega movie off that date to save from the massive losses each movie will make when battling each other at the box office. Now granted Marvel Studios had picked that date over a year ago and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige once again assures fans Marvel will not blink:
I don’t think it is quite far to say DC is finally getting their act together. The Dark Knight movies were rather successful and genre-defining, they altered the genre in big ways. So I think there has always been competition that way. I mean Iron Man was the number one movie of 2008 until The Dark Knight came along, and I loved it, frankly. I love that the number 1 and the number 2 movies of that year, and it has happened a number of times since then, being comic-book movies, even if it wasn’t one we made. Here we are now, 14 years since the first Marvel movie I worked on. At that point it had been eight years and for about those eight years people had been asking ‘How much longer is this gonna last?’ ‘When are people gonna get tired of these movies? And my answer always was ‘People only get tired if a whole slew of terrible ones come out’. And it was our job to make sure that doesn’t happen. If there are other people out there interested in that not happening as well, I’m all for it!

So I continue to be all for quality entertainment for moviegoers to enjoy on weekends. If it is on the same weekend I enjoy it slightly less. But 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.

 As a film fan we could not be happier. A literal Marvel vs DC battle of the ages! In the immortal words Dr. Ishiro Serizawa in 2014's Godzilla....

Let them fight....

Batman v Superman & Captain America 3 hit May 6th, 2016
