After years of rumors, speculation and teases Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man" has officially been given a green light by Marvel.

It was announced in Disney's updated schedule of upcoming film releases for the next three years that "Ant-Man" will hit theatres on November 6, 2015.

Wright screened test footage at this year's Comic-Con during the "Iron Man 3" panel to a highly enthused fan base. But it seemed as though Marvel was hedging a bit on an official green light and perhaps even feeling out the waters of audience interest with the footage.

Well, they have been convinced that this is a winning horse. The film will make its way into theatres six months after "The Avengers 2" is hits in keeping with the studios two cinematic releases a year strategy.

The character is described as follows:

Ant-Man was originally the superhero persona of Henry Pym, a brilliant scientist who invented a substance that allowed him to change his size. Armed with a helmet that could control ants, Pym would shrink down to the size of an insect to become the mystery-solving Ant-Man.

Of the Marvel endeavors, "Ant-Man" and "Guardians of the Galaxy" feel like the two biggest wild cards in terms of both audience engagement and maintaining the cohesive visual and tonal style that Marvel has created for their cinematic universe.

Wright, who's previous films include "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World", "Shaun of the Dead" and the upcoming "The World's End" has a distinctive directorial style. It will be interesting to see how he balances that with Marvel's overarching needs.

But we want to know what you think. Are you looking forward to an "Ant-Man" movie? Do you think this was the right move for Marvel to make?

    This reply if for CMO175: Wow... I had to comment on your posting. The fact that you believe Batman vs. Superman would beat Captain America 3 strikes me as uninformed. Zack Snyder is a visual master... but his stories and pacing and color palate are truly lacking in the development process. Superman simply had no soul... the man and the movie. And the silly destruction of the city and the landscape IS out of character with what Superman is. How many people died as Superman himself crashed through buildings and caused explosions throughout the movie? Superman would NEVER allow that to happen, but Zack Snyder and his writer would... and did. And it was a boring, stupid mess. And he WILL bring that soulless idiocy to Batman vs. Superman. Captain America, on the other hand? Winter Soldier is the most exciting super hero movie since The Dark Knight. And I, a 55 year old long time comic book universe fan, WILL be in line for Captain America 3! I will have to be convinced -- a LOT -- to turn around and spend my money, and time, in a Zack Snyder Batman vs. Superman. Zack Snyder stole a bit of my soul -- and I hate him for it -- when he introduced zombies that can run down a car. If zombies existed, in a Zack Snyder universe, and they move FASTER than any human... then he has introduced a horror universe in which man has NO hope of survival! Mankind cannot survive in this universe where vicious zombies have the speed to overwhelm any human survival situation... and that vision kills the suspense in a zombie movie. Where is the hope? That does not exist in a Zack Snyder movie. That man is Sucker Punching all of us. I'm not taking it any more. There are too many other fan friendly directors of fantasy movies for me to follow. I only hope that Disney/Marvel will hire the same brother director team to direct Captain America 3. That will be a smart move, indeed. RLJ
