That sound you hear is WB's car careening off the road after losing the May 6 standoff.

The Wrap is reporting that Warner Bros is moving the release date of Batman v. Superman: Noontime of Violence to March 25, 2016, over a month earlier than its originally announced May release date. WB moved the tepidly anticipated film in order to keep it from competing with an untitled Marvel movie, which everyone thinks is Captain America 3, that will be released on the same day.
Both sides are claiming victory over the movie schedule reshuffling. "WOOOOOOOOO," said Kevin Feige. "The red on our logo doesn't run, and neither does Marvel. Winning this battle of stubborness totally justifies our stubborn refusal of making movies starring women or minority protagonists."
WB saw things differently, however. "We realized that the best way for Superman to wreck Hollywood the way he did Smallville and Metropolis was to move up the release date," said a WB spokesperson. "The S on Superman's chest certainly doesn't stand for chicken, that's for sure."
Fans of both companies also claimed victory over the move, despite no one really giving a shit about what they had to say. Meanwhile, journalists planned to fill the coming weeks with speculative articles that really contributed nothing to the discussion.
