Captain America: Civil War Co-Director Doesn't Look At Batman V. Superman As Competition


Though comment sections tend to get into some heated battles over Marvel and DC films, especially with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War coming in 2016, the directors of Marvel's side of the 2016 super hero showdowns don't see their DC counterparts as competition.

"As filmmakers, my brother and I, we love the genre," Anthony Russo said during a live panel at CCXP in Brazil this weekend. "The more good comic book movies there are the better, as far as we're concerned. So, we don't really look at it as competition. We think Zack Snyder is great and we hope the movie is fun and great and we enjoy it like everybody else."

That's the spirit.

Russo, like many of the more level-headed Internet users, sees the positive side of multiple super hero films coming from different studios. Let's all learn from this and be grateful that in the same year we get to watch the DC Trinity unite, the Avengers feud, and the X-Men take on their most powerful threat yet. Oh, and listen to Deadpool curse like a sailor!

Let's be honest - we're all buying tickets to all of these movies.

Captain America: Civil War hits theaters May 6, 2016.
