"I don’t think it is quite fair to say DC is finally getting their act together," replied Kevin Feige when Empire said so, and asked the Marvel Studios president/producer  how he felt about Warner Bros. releasing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on the very same day as Captain America 3. 
"The Dark Knight movies were rather successful and genre-defining, they altered the genre in big ways. So I think there has always been competition that way. I mean Iron Man was the number one movie of 2008 until The Dark Knight came along, and I loved it. frankly. I love that the number 1 and the number 2 movies of that year, and it has happened a number of times since then, being comic-book movies, even if it wasn’t one we made. Here we are now, 14 years since the first Marvel movie I worked on. At that point it had been eight years and for about those eight years people had been asking ‘How much longer gonna last?’ ‘When are people gonna get tired of these movies? And my answer always was ‘People only get tired if a whole slew of terrible ones come out’. And it was our job to make sure that doesn’t happen. If there are other people out there interested in that not happening as well, I’m all for it!"
He continued, "So I continue to be all for quality entertainment for moviegoers to enjoy on weekends. If it is on the same weekend I enjoy it slightly less. But we are doing what we’ve always done, which is sticking to our plan and sticking to our vision for the movies going forward and we have a very large vision that we’re working on for Cap 3 and for all the threes movies and just because another movie plops down onto one of ours doesn’t mean we are going to alter that. Maybe we should, but we’re not going to." For those who don't know, both Captain America 3 and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice are currently scheduled for release on May 6, 2016. As for the other Marvel Studios adaptation that's likely scheduled for release later that year, Feige was asked if Scott Derrickson directing Doctor Strange indicates a horror/supernatural-like direction. "I would say you can certainly look at the past work of the filmmakers we hire as a bit of an indication for the tone of the movie, but not necessary everything," he said. "The Russos, who are well known for their sitcoms, there is nothing sitcom about The Winter Soldier! No, I wouldn’t say just because he has only done horror movies means that Doctor Strange is going to be a horror movie. It means he is a talented filmmaker who we think could add something unique and very fresh to the particular franchise. But there could be scary moments. There are scary moments in all our movies! There are some scary people that Strange has to deal with, I will say." What do you think?

Well said Feige.

Deleted the Ant-Man article once I actually read the full quote, which is basically Feige reiterating what he said in my previous article
KurtWagner1225 - 7/18/2014, 10:45 AM
do u guys think Marvel will announce the title for the film at comic con?
KurtWagner1225 - 7/18/2014, 10:46 AM
DCMARVELFRESHMAN-ok, thanks,also keep up the great work man, it astonishes me how fast u are with the news ..keep it up!!
McNyagano - 7/18/2014, 10:46 AM
Feige is the man. Either way, I'll see both those films at press screenings. Either way, I applaud Marvel for sticking to their guns. Now...

Lozzy - 7/18/2014, 10:47 AM

I would be shocked if they don't.
Mrcool210 - 7/18/2014, 10:49 AM
Except if he is smart he will, Cap may make good money, but its going against the trinity? plus both movies will lose big money if they are on the same day. Feige, just move it to july 4th, its Captain AMERICA!!! its a no brainier here man.
Omarvls - 7/18/2014, 10:49 AM
any fair minded CBM lover knows that
Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice will out gross Cap 3 opening weekend and over all box office numbers

But....How much damage would it do to Dawn of Justice?
Would it stop it from having a 200 million dollar opening weekend or reach 1 Billion World Wide

I still think Cap 3 should move back to April of that year so we can have to Epic movies apart

In the wise words of Ken Watanabe: "Let them fight."
DrKinsolving - 7/18/2014, 10:51 AM
I'm definitely watching both movies, haha

But, doesn't the MCU have more than one movie coming out in 2016?
YeezusWept - 7/18/2014, 10:51 AM
I'll see both the same night. Joke's on the fanboys.
charlie2094 - 7/18/2014, 10:51 AM
Not wrong about The Dark Knight trilogy.

Marvel or Warners will move, just neither wants to be the one to do it. They both realise how stupid it would be to open on the same day, one will move once we get closer. Wouldn't be surprised if it was Warners, pushing BvS to July, where they've had a lot of success before.
MrCBM56 - 7/18/2014, 10:51 AM
Quality>Quantity. At the end of the day, I'm seeing the better movie. With that said, can't for Cap 3 ;)
frova - 7/18/2014, 10:52 AM
posting this article is just asking for a flame war
frova - 7/18/2014, 10:52 AM
but feige is right
KurtWagner1225 - 7/18/2014, 10:52 AM
DrKinsolving-yeah, its going to be Cap 3 and Doctor Strange in 2016
Dinotron - 7/18/2014, 10:52 AM
Both films will hurt each other being on the same day, it WB who has to be cautious since this is kick starting their cinematic universe while Cap 3 is the whatever number installment of marvel universe. I'll see both that day any ways, depending on the trailers and how good either look will determine which one I see first in the day

What he said really makes me thirsty.
ThePowerCosmic - 7/18/2014, 10:53 AM
Fiege keeping it classy!

Now if only more comic fans could be as classy...
YeezusWept - 7/18/2014, 10:53 AM

Word has it the DCCU has more than one 2016 movie as well...
McNyagano - 7/18/2014, 10:54 AM

There's another MCU film coming out in July.
Dinotron - 7/18/2014, 10:54 AM
I can't wait to see the Russos return for Cap 3! They did an incredible job with TWS!
Omarvls - 7/18/2014, 10:54 AM
Feige and Marvel will have to take Cap to another level if they truly intend to keep the May 6 2016 date and COMPETE with Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice

1. Like FINALLY have Cap wear his chain mail/dragon scale battle armor with his winged helmet (Would look EPIC on film)

2. Have him go into battle on a Sky-Cycle

3. Baron Zemo/Madam Viper/CrossBones as villains


KurtWagner1225 - 7/18/2014, 10:55 AM
StarYeezus-thats true too,i have a feeling we get a 30 sec-1 min teaser for Batman V Superman at Comic Con and then they confirm their rumored movie lineup
DraculaX - 7/18/2014, 10:56 AM
One of them is gonna have to move, otherwise both will suffer major damage at the Box office.

Comic Book Fans and classy never go together.
Omarvls - 7/18/2014, 10:56 AM

DC/WB will have something major for ComicCon 2014
Mrcool210 - 7/18/2014, 10:57 AM
@McNyagano well....thats dumb, the fact that they haven't released a captain america movie on the 4th of july yet perplexes me, its like perfect marketing. But whatever, put another movie in july instead.

"The fact that WB/DCE is just now doing their shared cinematic universe almost immediately in the wake of Marvel's huge success with The Avengers makes DC look like the jealous school outcast that's desperately trying to copy the popular kid to get noticed."
YeezusWept - 7/18/2014, 10:57 AM
West Coast Avengers vs. Masters of Evil, please.
Jollem - 7/18/2014, 10:58 AM
and not to mention MoS elevating the cbm game

So what? if they look like that I don't think DC/WB cares

If done right DC/WB shared universe will be just as EPIC as Marvel's or it could actually be more

Who knows

But it's going to fun finding out
