Everyone was wondering who would blink when you had two superhero movies going head-to-head on a fateful weekend on May 6, 2016. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice moved from its original 2015 summer release date to the aforementioned 2016 date that put it on a collision course with Captain America 3.
And given the success of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, pundits were frankly surprised that DC Comics would put its Batman and Superman, pre-Justice League movie up against a Marvel movie with a proven track record. Someone had to blink.
DC Comics and Warner Bros. announced today that it was moving up Zack Snyder’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice movie to March 25, 2016 where it will have a little less competition in the form of Beverly Hills Cop 4.
And on a related note, Warner Bros. has announced dates for a series of yet-unnamed DC Comics movies – taking the lead on claiming these dates for their future comic book movies.
