On Monday, April 7 Entertainment Weekly posted the news that a third "Captain America" action adventure movie is underway and it is expected to arrive in theaters the same weekend of the highly anticipated "Batman vs. Superman" movie. Marvel had previously penciled in the movie for May 2016, and the release date for the superhero sequel to "Man of Steel" was recently pushed to the same weekend.

Marvel has mapped out superhero movies through 2028, including sequels and trilogies to current major motion picture superheroes, and created a spot for the Steve Roger's third adventure back in June 2013. "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" was just released and broke domestic box office records for the month of April, and earned over three hundred million dollars overseas.

A third film in the series was first announced a few months before the sequel was released. The sequel set up a third film with Rogers tracking down both an enemy and a friend. The government involvement also changes the course of the Marvel cinematic universe, and makes Rogers the front runner to lead The Avengers.

Zack Snyder's "Batman vs. Superman" film was originally set to release in theaters on July 31, 2015 but was pushed back due to script rewrites and actor preparation. Three more actors have been added to the cast, which already includes Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman. Marvel's "Ant-Man," directed by Edgar Wright, will now be released that weekend. Steve Rogers will now have to battle Batman and Superman at the box office on May 6, 2016.
