Edgar Wright's ANT-MAN Shifts From November to July 2015 Release Date

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

Are you excited for "Ant-Man"? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Ant-Man" will hit AMC Theatres on July 31st, 2015.

    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
