Batman V Superman set for showdown with Marvel after all - against Daredevil

Batman and Superman may appear to have their hands full with the villain double-dipping they'll have to squash in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, but they might want to turn their attention ever so slight to another opponent who may be a little more dangerous to their presence at the box office...


According to ComicBook.com, Season Two of DAREDEVIL will be launching on Netflix on March 25 - the very day that BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE will be premiering in theaters. This sets up a showdown between Marvel and DC of sorts, one that DC and Warner Bros. seemingly had hoped to avoid when they shifted their movie out of the first weekend in May - where a game of chicken with CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR had everyone feeling uncomfortable.

Marvel now appears to be the aggressor though, parking the sophomore effort of their well-received series against the prelude to JUSTICE LEAGUE, and while fanboys of both brands are sure to quickly pick up sides as to which property will come out ahead that weekend, I'm not too sure DAREDEVIL, even with the introductions of Elektra and the Punisher in the show's back pocket, is going to really harm the team-up blockbuster that'll be dominating the box office.

You have to remember... these are two entirely different mediums, and, while there will be a fair share of people who will immediately take to their Netflix in order to binge-watch DAREDEVIL, there are still a lot of hours and plenty of showtimes the rest of the weekend in order to make BATMAN V SUPERMAN a priority. The same goes for watching DAREDEVIL. With enough advance notice now, people can try to clear out their Saturday or Sunday afternoons in order to knock Season Two out, having already caught DAWN OF JUSTICE at a Thursday or Friday night show.

The prospect of these two comic book behemoths squaring off and doing battle is cool in the fans' eyes, no doubt... but when push comes to shove, I think there is much more hype than anything else gathering around this head-to-head for your attention that particular weekend.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE arrives in theaters on March 25, reportedly the same day DAREDEVIL Season Two will now launch on Netflix.
