Marvel Schedules Captain America 3 for May 2016
Marvel has recently announced that their May 6, 2016 release slot will be occupied by the third installment in the Captain America movie franchise. This in itself is not big news, but it is made interesting by the fact that the new schedule puts it in direct competition with Warner Bros’ Batman vs. Superman.Besides May 2016, Marvel is also holding onto another release slot – May 2017. However, the movie that will occupy the 2nd slot is still untitled.
It is worth noting that two big-name Superhero films occupying the same release slot is bound to affect both studios, and which one will end up winning (or losing less) would be interesting, considering that Batman vs. Superman announced their release date first while Marvel isn’t budging on the principle that they have occupied the May release slot for a few good years now.
