Question, what are your plans for May 6th, 2016? If we asked you that same question yesterday, the overwhelming response would have been, “Watching ‘Batman vs. Superman, obviously,” but it appears as though Marvel is throwing a wrench, or perhaps a shield, into our cinematic plans.

Let’s see, how can we articulate our exact thoughts on this startling revelation…
