UPDATE:  Sebastian Stan has revealed that he has a deal that he “thinks” lasts nine films, a deal that surpasses that of Chris Evans, “because in the comic books, when Captain America is killed by Red Skull, it’s Stan’s character Bucky Barnes who picks up the shield and becomes the star-spangled hero.”

Warner Bros. had moved its highly anticipated superhero team-up, Batman vs. Superman all the way to 2016, the same May 6, 2016 that Marvel first earmarked for one of its own movies. Moreover, the untitled May 2016 feature has been reportedly revealed, so we have a clearer picture of the Marvel vs. DC epic battle for box office glory.

Batman vs Superman apparently doesn’t scare Marvel as the mystery movie set for the date is none other than Captain America 3, with Chris Evans‘ third solo outing as Steve Rogers. Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige confirmed that they had no plans of shifting their May 6, 2016 release away from the date, making Captain America‘s solo return to the big screen two years from now.

Depending on how Captain America: The Winter Soldier does when it opens, but tracking indicated that upcoming Marvel’s superhero sequel will open in North America with a whopping $85 million next month.

Hot on the heels of the prediction of movie box office success, Russo Brothers have been signed on to direct again.

Zack Snyder is also back in the director’s chair with the Man of Steel follow-up, which will also introduce Gal Gadot as Amazonian warrior Wonder Woman as well as Jesse Eisenberg‘s Lex Luthor.

It is highly unlikely that two major superhero tentpoles will be opening on the same weekend, so
our bet would be that it’s Warner Bros that blinks first.

What do you think of it?
