Have I mentioned lately how amazing 2015 is going to be for film fans? Edgar Wright's last comic-book film adventure was "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World", which was met with surprised and very positive reviews. His next Marvel project is "Ant-Man", which has been kept pretty under wraps. News just hit today that the film is now moving from its November 6th, 2015 release date to the heat of Summer on July 31st.
What does this mean exactly? A few things perhaps, the first being that Marvel/Disney most likely has a lot of faith in Wright's vision for the property. Joss Whedon's highly anticipated "Avengers" sequel will hit theaters on May 1st, 2015, landing Wright's film just 3 months after its big release. The "Man of Steel" sequel will hit theaters on July 17th, 2015, a mere two weeks before Wright's film. A film that has as much excitement around it as Zack Snyder's sequel, definitely makes you wonder if it could hold the #1 spot three weeks in a row, pushing "Ant-Man" to one of the 2nd tiers.
With this revised timeline, I'm hoping we find out some details about "Ant-Man" sooner than later. Namely, who is going to play Hank Pym? I'm still hoping for Nathan Fillion but maybe that's just me
