WB's been slotting their top films of their summer lineup for the past few years on that weekend so why wouldn't they put it there? Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Dark Knight, Harry Potter 6, Inception, Harry Potter 8 and The Dark Knight Rises.

WB has these films in production, pre-production or revising the script.

Mad Max: Fury Road
Dumb and Dumber Too
New Vacation

Or a film from this list could end up in their summer lineup
Magic Mike 2
Horrible Bosses 2
Police Academy reboot
Revenge of the Titans
Sherlock Holmes 3
low budget horror film

Dumb and Dumber Too - May 9
Magic Mike 2 - May 30
Mad Max - June 13
New Vacation - July 2
The Hobbit 3 - July 18
Godzilla - August 8

If they can get those films out, while they are all reboots or sequels, that's a pretty good lineup box office wise.

Not sure if Fox can put X-Men a week before GotG.
I could see Captain America pushed to August with Disney having a potentially strong first half of 2014 and nothing scheduled past August.

Need for Speed 2/7/14
Maleficent 3/14/14
Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier 4/4/14
Spielberg's Robopocalypse 4/25/14
Pixar's The Good Dinosaur 5/30/14

Release The Incredibles in 3D for the fall for their 10th anniversary and have GotG out in November 2014 and Aladdin 3D in December 2014.
The Avengers 2 in May 2015 six months later.

So that could box X-Men into June.
