CBTVB: Marvel’s Daredevil Season 2 to Premiere Same Day as Batman v Superman

Marvel and DC are at it again…remember that time when Warner Bros announced that Batman v Superman would open on May 6, 2016, and then Marvel said they were opening Captain America: Civil War that same day?

The WB claimed it wasn’t because of the conflict, but most people assume that Marvel won the day because they had an already established universe that almost guaranteed a $100 million plus opening.

Jon Bernthal’s Punisher will square off against Charlie Cox’s Daredevil in a battle for the mortal soul of Hell’s Kitchen.

Whether Warner Bros cares or not, they should know that Jessica Jones debuted on Netflix the same weekend as the last Hunger Games film, which ended up opening lower than its predecessor. So, Daredevil could be a bigger opponent on March 25th than Lex Luthor. We shall see…
