Ant-Man Movie Release Date Revealed

Marvel announced the release date for the much anticipated Ant-Man movie…and it’s more than a bit surprising. We already knew of an impending 2015, but what you read below may surprise even the most stalwart of Marvel aficionados. Keep reading below for more information!

 

Hank Pym may be of little stature, but Disney/Marvel is hope for huge returns at the box office

Hank Pym may be of little stature, but Disney/Marvel is hoping for huge returns at the box office

 

The Ant-Man movie, based on the origin of scientist Hank Pym, will be directed by Edgar Wright . You may know Wright for his extraordinary work on Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and, most recently, The World’s End; but this new project will by far be his biggest challenge. Ant-Man will officially kick off phase three of Marvel’s movie plans and will now be butting heads with the big boys.

Disney officially moved up the release date from November of 2015 to July 31st of the same year. This will not only place a “summer blockbuster” tag of the film, but it will put it in the company of not only Marvel’s own Avengers: Age of Ultron (set for May 1st) but, more surprisingly, placing it just two weeks after Zack Snyder’s untitled Man of Steel sequel (July 31st). This seems surprising, to me at least, since there has not been a single person cast for the film. Marvel hasn’t had a single misstep, however, since their refocus so I will give them the benefit of the doubt.
