Just days after Marvel showed the strength of its brand with a $94 million haul for “Guardians of the Galaxy,” Warner Bros. has decided to release “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” in 3D on March 25, 2016, avoiding a high-profile showdown with “Captain America 3” on May 6, 2016.

“Batman v Superman” is viewed as the cornerstone of Warners’ DC Comics Universe and the studio couldn't afford to leave anything to chance with its release date.

It was inevitable that one studio would blink, as it never made sense for Hollywood to open two blockbuster superhero movies against each other.

Warner Bros, also announced release dates for many other titles, including several DC-related movies.

“Batman v Superman” has taken the release date of the Gerard Butler movie “Geostorm,” which now has an unspecified 2016 release date.
