Marvel v DC Movie Release Dates

So many movies coming out from Marvel and DC - lets take a look.  Obviously most of these dates are subject to change, especially movies further out.  I am uncertain of the accuracy of these dates as different web sites list different dates and some of the more official sites don't seem to be updated.

I will be interested in seeing what happens in May 2016.  The Batman v Superman movie is going to be huge and important to this entire plan for DC.  They cannot go up against the established Captain America.  Both films will suffer in the end and DC has more riding on this than Marvel.  Expect DC to move to April or June.

Later in 2016 the battle of the unknowns will be interesting as well.  If Batman v Superman sets up Shazam and Sandman properly then we should see some big hits.  Marvel's next new superhero introduction won't be a given by any stretch.

2017 will have three big DC movies and Marvel may counter with some heavy hitters of their own.  It would appear that Guardians is going to be a huge hit in 2014 and so should do well again.  It depends on what Marvel has in store for the rest of its films in 2017.

2018 should be all Marvel even with Man of Steel 2 there. Still, if DC has managed to have duplicated Marvel's success then by 2018 there could be more DC movies in the works.

I don't expect any battles per say but if both franchises give each other a little distance, both should do well.
