Promising some announcements later this month, the Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution comments on Batman v Superman's new and initial release dates, and the nine untitled DC movies.
"If you look at the summer box-office this year, you can see that there were so many movies, one after another. You can start with Spider-man, two weeks later Godzilla, and then Maleficent, and the Jump Street and Transformers. And the one thing they all had in common, not one of them did over $250 million. We'll be first up [in 2016], which is important, and we'll have six weeks before Captain America comes in." Very true! ^^ Smart move. Both BvS and Cap3 would have eaten each other up at the box-office and both would have suffered from the silly pi$$ing contest. Although let's be honest the odds of both staying on the date was always ZERO. Even Feige said it would be foolish to stay. You'd be naive to think otherwise.
It makes sense, and is the exact reason I said it moved. No matter what, you win the war, but lose profits. Spider-Man is a great example. If it released a little earlier, it would have probably doubled it's week.
