CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Cast Reponds to SUPERMAN VS. BATMAN Competing Release Date

We learned last week that "Superman Vs. Batman" would be opening up against "Captain America 3". In this crazy game of comic-book chicken, fanboys and critics around the globe have been wondering if either studio will move off the date.

Marvel President Kevin Feige stated that they have no intention on vacating the date. Given the successful track record of Marvel up to this point, I don't blame him. After all, they did announce the date for an untitled Marvel film back around San Diego Comic Con last year.

The "Man of Steel" sequel was supposed to open up in July of next year, but was delayed until the May date. And just last week, Marvel revealed what title would occupy the previously announced release.

The buzz around "The Winter Soldier" has been fantastic. I have personally seen it and it's one of the best, if not the best, Marvel film to date. It has everything you want it to and more and the Russo Bros. did a fantastic job directing it.

Apparently the entire cast and crew knows they have a hot property on their hands, as given their cocky attitudes at a panel promoting the film. When a reporter brought up the conflicting release dates, Anthony Mackie said, "This is where punks step up to get beat down." Not one to usally remain quiet, Samuel L. Jackson also responded with, "There’s Marvel where you have heroes, and there’s DC where you have some interesting bad guys." Being a bit more diplomatic. co-director Joe Russo confirmed that they have no plans to move.

What do you make of this situation? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.

    Why is there so much complaining about a fun movie bracket that nobody can truly say one movie is better. It's all subjective just cause your movie that nobody saw didn't win don't whine about it inform your friends make them watch it remember this is all for fun
