Batman vs. Superman Synopsis
Though the Man of Steel sequel currently has no official title, it's often referred to as "Batman vs. Superman" since the plot will involve Superman facing off against Batman and then, if the rumors pan out, teaming up with him to face a greater threat. It could, however, also be referred to as Man of Steel 2.

The May 6, 2016 release date for Batman vs. Superman means it'll be opening at the same time as Captain America 3. Will that work? In-depth analysis in this Batman vs. Superman video blog...

Marvel and DC have been competing as the biggest names in the comic book industry for decades, and that rivalry has spilled over into Hollywood in a major way. Big screen adaptations of classic characters like Iron Man, Batman, Captain America and Superman have helped the two companies compete for dominance in the comic book movie world, both in terms of quality of product and success at the box office. In 2016, however, their quest for dominance will be coming to a head....

So what is the next step here? It's hard to say. May 6, 2016 is still a long time from now, so both Marvel Studios and Warner Bros. will have plenty of time to think about whether or not they really want to release two such big projects on the same day. If they do end up coming out the same weekend, then it's possible that they will both just end up eating each other's box office and then nobody walks away a winner....
