Rumor Mill: Daredevil Season 2 Might Premiere The Same Day As Batman V Superman

By  | 

Marvel, you’re such a scamp.

You guys remember the great Civil War/Dawn of Justice Release Date Feud of 2013? I know that in over two years it has already dissolved into pure myth, but I remember: basically what happened was that Marvel (in their always over-prepared wisdom) set the release date for Captain America: Civil War (known at that time as merely Captain America 3) long ago, claiming the much coveted first weekend of May spot they’ve been using for years now. But on the horizon another superhero film, the delayed Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, swooped in and tried to claim the space for itself, causing an all-and-out DC/Marvel cold war. There was no way the two gigantic tentpole superhero films would open the same exact day, but the question became more about who would blink first than anything else.

Predictably it was Warner Bros./DC who decided to move, pushing Batman V Supermans release date to where it is now: March 25, 2016. Ultimately it was a smart decision on the studio’s part, since that film has a hell of a lot to lose if it didn’t perform gangbusters on release, and didn’t need the looming threat of another superhero film ON THE SAME DAY to make that task any harder. Still though, apparently Marvel holds a grudge, and have decided to get back at WB/DC for even DARING to try and compete with them in the most passive aggressive, hilarious way possible: by putting the premiere of one of their big properties against the superhero movie anyway.

Yes, according to ComicBook.com, Marvel is looking at March 25 to launch Daredevil Season 2, which is exciting in and of itself. But when you consider that DC very much wants BvS to be the center of conversation for that entire weekend (ala Star Wars), well, it’s a pretty clear indication that Marvel is having fun trolling this company. For what it’s worth I think it would be silly for Marvel to do this, and just a tad bit petty (there’s like 52 weekends in a year you could release the season, it doesn’t HAVE to be this one!), but you also kind of have to appreciate how Marvel is openly creating these little conflicts now, and doesn’t care much to hide it.

IF this report proves to be true, after all; it seems likely from where I’m standing (season 1 of the show premiered April 10 of 2015, so it’s around the same timeframe), but it could just be a false flag from someone to give us all a good laugh. Either way: mission accomplished.

  • Your answer shows real inelceigtnle.

  • As usual, my manners fail and I don’t thank everybody I should. How can I leave out all the wondeful hasbaratchniks especially Hophmi, who helped turn my flacid, wishy-washy dislike of Zionism into a real, burning, and quite personal dislike of the people involved with it. You guys did a hell of a job! You were on it 24/7, and every time I thought you couldn’t do more, you exceeded yourself.And I have every confidence (backed by testing, I might add) that you will affect more and more American Jews the same way.

  • Eh, ce amintiri…MulÅ£am pentru versuri!!!Foarte frumoase florile de la Tu26dor, nu cred că am văzut vreodată flori de mălin, iar de primit nici atât. E o premieră, mulÅ£am!

  • What i don’t realize is actually how you are not really much more well-liked than you may be now. You are so intelligent. You realize thus significantly relating to this subject, produced me personally consider it from so many varied angles. Its like men and women aren’t fascinated unless it’s one thing to accomplish with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs outstanding. Always maintain it up!

  • J’ai le 2eme album depuis quelque temps déjà mais à part “Jackson Avenue”, je ne me suis pas encore vraiment penchée dessus.Mais y a pas de raison que ça ne me plaise pas.J’ai écouté le 1er album ici et j’aime beaucoup “Sadder days”.Effectivement on sent la Portishead’s touch 🙂

  • Een gratis Jack! Zat ik maar in Singapore. Nou jongens maak er wat van down onder (alleen jammer dat jullie je schatsen thuis hebben gelaten ivm de winter)P.S.: Wie zijn er lid geworden van de mile high club?P.P.S.: Man dit worden 8 lange maanden!

  • You need more than just MM or MS to press powders, those are good fillers for loose powders.The #1 choice of powder for pressing is Zinc Stearate, TKB Trading sells a press base with ZS and other ingredients that work well for pressing(I use this). As well as a liquid pressing medium.I prefer to use a mix of silcones and mineral oil as my liquid binder. The mineral oil binds the powders together and the silcones add silkiness and compactness to the pressed product.

  • Quite a contrast to the SEAL team "rescue" of the British hostage in Afghanistan (in which they fragged her!).—Don't be a moron. I'd rather be killed by friendly fire from my rescuers than tortured slowly and have it put up on the internet by muslims. Besides, who forced this woman to Afghanistan to help out (good luck with that)? She had no idea what goes down there?

  • When are you comming bak to Austin? We loved you! You came on my birthday on March 10th during Spring Break, lemme just say, BEST F*CKIN BIRTHDAY EVER!!!!!

  • I am a 20 years old kenyan currently pursuing a beachelors degree in Information Technology at JOMO KENYATTA UNIVERSITY OF AGRICULTURE AND TECHNOLOGY. I am kindly appealing to for help from anyone to help me raise funds to cater for my tution fee.My e-mail adress is . God be with you.

  • Worked Squats at 165# – Felt very smooth today.METCON – 12:51Pistols done to a 20″ box.Wall Balls RxRuns were TOUGH in the crisp morning air. Good stuff.

  • The statement on breakfast in the “Weight loss tips” makes no sense to me. “Those who eat breakfast are at 400% greater risk for obesity than those who don’t” A car needs gas to go, we need a healthy breakfast to start the day. Your statement is confusing to me.

  • That cape is beyond fabulous! I love Welsh tweed actually. Plus what an incredible dreamy bed – you will surely have people over the whole time when they see that! x Comtesse x
