[Movies] Warner Bros. Not Backing Down From Batman vs. Superman Release Date

It's still competing with Captain America 3...
Bloomberg reports that much like Marvel did with Captain America 3, DC Comics and Warner Bros have no plans to back down from the May 6, 2016 release date for Batman vs Superman. The two films are still scheduled to go head-to-head on that date. Two superhero movies have not been released on the same date like this before, especially not two films from rival companies. Batman vs Superman was originally set to arrive on July 17, 2015 before it was pushed back.
Warner Bros president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman said: "It doesn't make a lot of sense for two huge superhero films to open on the same date but there is a lot of time between now and 5/6/16. However at this time, we are not considering a change of date for 'Batman vs. Superman.'"
There are over two years between now and the release date, so it's still possible that one of the companies will eventually blink.
