The Hollywood Reporter is stating that Captain America 3 will take the previously announced May 6, 2016 spot on Disney/Marvel’s slate. As you know, Warners made some waves when they moved their Batman vs. Superman from 2015 to May 6, 2016, putting its DC Comics superhero film in competition with whatever Marvel’s would be, head to head.
Kevein Feige had said in the promotional rounds for Captain America: The Winter Soldier that he refused to budge from the May 6, 2016 date, a date Marvel announced way before Batman vs. Superman shifted schedules. However, there are rumors that Warners has already blinked and moved their film a week earlier, to April 29.
Of course, those were only rumors. It will be interesting to see if the rumor changes no that Warners knows what their up against. They might think the first, live-action pairing of two of their biggest characters will have more luster and allure than the third installment of a Marvel franchise. However, this might not be as sure-fire a win as Warner’s thinks, as advance buzz for The Winter Soldier says it is phenomenal. If it is as good as they say, people might be lining up for the sequel from the same directors.
