In recent history we as a culture have had many instances we could label a 'nerdgasm'. I'm about to tell you something you may not have realised before because it constantly surprises me how many people didn't know. About a 'nerdgasm' which would have blown every other out of the water. Draw your mind back to July 20th 2013 at the San Diego Comic Con and the Warner Bros./ Legendary presentation when the biggest squeal I had ever done happened, and all of us were slapping ourselves in the face in disbelief. If you can't here's a reminder:
We finally got confirmation that not only would Batman and Superman be in the same film but they would fight each-other, and they used the immortal words of Frank Miller's 'The Dark Knight Returns' to do it. I can't remember whether it was beforehand or after but Warner Bros. confirmed the date of release as May 6th 2016, now this date was important as you may remember, because later Marvel announced the release of Captain America 3. Do you by any chance want to take a guess as to when it's going to be released? That's right May 6th 2016. This caused uproar on the internet as to who was going to back down first with Marvel firmly sticking their ground which to me, and a few others, seemed a little stupid. Come on. I liked Cap and all. But how could Cap stand his own against two titans in a cinematic milestone? Which further confused me when DC pushed forward [Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870) to avoid Marvel. But then came possibly the biggest squeal of 2014 with Marvels little announcement.....
[Captain America: Civil War](movie:994409). I know why DC wanted to run. Civil War was one of the biggest guns Marvel could've pulled out of their comic book arsenal and they damn well did it. See the reason Civil War was so epic was it, at it's heart, was Captain America vs Iron Man.
Now do you see why May 6th was almost the biggest 'nerdgasm' ever?
Batman v Superman and Captain America v Iron Man almost came out on the exact. Same. Day. You could've walked into a theatre saw Batman v Superman, walked out, then immediately walk back in fr an effective round 2 if you will. Sadly DC cowarded out. Shame.
