(Relaxnews) – Marvel and DC are set on a cinematic crash course, with both houses intent on releasing blockbuster comic hero movies on the same day in May 2016.

Marvel already had the May 6 date staked out for an unnamed entry in its ongoing filmhouse franchise when Warner Bros. announced its own Superman vs. Batman flick would move from July 2015 onto Marvel’s May day.

Zack Snyder is to direct, with Ben Affleck cast as Batman and Henry Cavill returning as Supes.

Affleck has already appeared in the lead role of “Daredevil” (2003) and as 1950s Superman actor George Reeves in “Hollywoodland” (2006).

Now, The Hollywood Reporter claims to have unveiled the Marvel film’s secret identity — none other than a third Captain America film, whose second part releases this April.

Previously, “Captain America: The First Avenger” banked $370 million following its 2011 release, on a budget of $140m, while this year’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is built on a warchest of $170m.
