Marvel’s ANT-MAN Moves from November 6, 2015 to July 31, 2015

     September 9, 2013

If you were to pick a comic book character that would have to go head-to-head with Superman and Batman, would you choose Ant-Man?  That’s the decision Marvel landed on as it has moved the Edgar Wright picture from a November 6, 2015 release to a summer release of July 31, 2015.  This puts the pint-sized hero smack into the warpath of Batman vs. Superman, opening July 17, 2015.  A bold move from Marvel, wouldn’t you say?  Perhaps this means we’re also a couple of months closer to some casting news?

This makes four summer films for Disney in 2015 (Ant-Man, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Pixar’s Inside Out and Pirates of the Caribbean 5), which makes it even more likely that Star Wars: Episode VII will be moving toward a Christmas 2015 release.  It’s also worth noting that the previous release date would have had Ant-Man opening up against James Bond 24, which is not too box-office friendly either.  The move doesn’t change how epic 2015 is going to be, but it does add a bit more tension to the summer box office race.
