May 6 2016: Box Office Superhero Showdown


Editor

It’s more than two years away and it is already worth getting excited about May 6th, 2016. Why, you ask? Because not one, but TWO, blockbuster superhero films will be premiering that weekend.

We already knew that Batman vs Superman would be hitting theatres that weekend, and reports had it that even before the DC announcement, Disney and Marvel had booked that weekend for a previously unnamed release. Today though, the Hollywood Reporter is announcing that Captain America 3 is that unnamed Marvel film.

So now that we know, that weekend marks some fierce competition in the DC vs Marvel media feud, but WAY more importantly it makes the weekend of May 6 the best superhero movie weekend in the history of ever. Ever I tell you.

The second Captain America film, which is comes out April 4, is getting major hype and is likely to significantly outstrip the first film in terms of box office earnings. If it does well, we can expect Cap’s third appearance to be bigger and better, with the Russo brothers coming back to direct.

Superman vs Batman vs Captain America vs whatever amazing villains both movies have.

Mark you calendars nerds, because that weekend is going to be awesome.

    I would be shocked if they do end up going head to head, more likely it will be a question of who blinks first.
