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?
