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

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.

    wow. bold move indeed

  • Batman

    Doesn’t seem like enough of a buffer between Avengers 2 and Ant Man but whatever earlier the better.

    • Lex Walker

      That might be intentional. It isn’t be hard to conceive that the Avengers 2 bumper is a lead in to Ant Man – that would easily help it gain momentum.

  • LEM

    I hope it’s a hit for Edgar Wright and will give him bigger opportunities.

  • Theodore Trout

    I would see a Pegg/Wright Ant-man movie over Snyder’s Bat-Affleck epic in a heartbeat.

    • Superherow

      I would not. I am intrigued an will see Superman and Batman on the big screen, since they are superheroes I know and love, and watch Antman if it comes to some cheap place near me. But I love Edgar Wright!

    • mbmarquis69

      Those of us not prone to binary thinking will probably see both.

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    Risky, but coming from Wright it will probably be a great film, and it will also likely benefit from the Avengers 2 being released a couple months prior.

  • Mixed Race rich kid NYC

    Lol
    Now we know what marvel think of that Ben affleck casting
    They already that it’s gonna suck and leave fans mighty disappointed, therefore those disappointed fans will come out and support ant-man
    Good move marvel

    • blkyank

      Good move from Marvel who cant even release a Captain America movie in a summer without a DC film but think Antman coming out 2 weeks after Superman/Batman is a good idea. Fail.

  • ninjaman

    I’M HAPPY

  • Jamesy

    Bold move indeed. Marvel seem to know what they’re doing though. Gonna be a big summer for movies! Hope this pays off for Wright more so than Marvel. Still looking forward to the MOS sequel though. But I don’t know if a character unknown to general movie goers can match a Superman vs Batman movie, I hope so.

    Also, does anybody know if there is a Chris Nolan impersonator that i can hire to come to my house, gather my family in the living room, drop his pants and start pissing in my open mouth while yelling “ACTION”? I’d really like that, in fact, i’m pretty sure that it’ll be the best birthday ever! I’m willing to pay $300 cash. $350 if he can make it taste like CORN. ;-) Lulz!

    Seems like the goal is to not put too much time between Avengers and Ant-Man. Instead of Ant-Man standing by himself all alone out there in November, he’ll be the Avenger’s little brother. “Oh hey! This is like that movie we just saw.” People will still be obsessed with Avengers, and Ant-Man will be a continuation of that. And will cap off the revenue that would have been earned by second/third viewings of Bat/Supes. I think this will work very well. Ant-Man is going to be a major property for Marvel, no doubt.

    neither of them are even remotely funny.. They should of retired in the 90′s, now they just try to hard.

  • killabee

    I thought you were for real and then you insisted Sandler and James still had talent. haha you almost trolled the fuck outta fanboys but you just took it one step too far.

  • Andrew Brown

    Yes because Kevin James has been so successful in all the movies he has had /S as for Sandler he hasn’t had a funny movie since the 90′s !! Simon Pegg is funny and Ant-Man will be just fine WHy ? Because the guy is a fan much like Kevin Feige was when he did Ironman !! He is passionate about the character and was the forefront in getting it made !! Josh Whedon is a POS for not putting in the main founder and one of Marvels Top science badass in Hank Pym a.k.a Antman in the Avengers instead of the stupid cunt Scarlett Johansson Black widow Character ! So by your logic Dark Knight , Man of Steel , The Avengers sucked ?? …Green Lantern sucked I’ll give you that because they tried to throw to much of the mythos into a 2 hr movie and cast a retard as Hal Jordan and the main villain was fucking stupid ! And FF4 was a fail in both movies save for Surfer ( especially with Lawrence Fishburnes voice )…So please give it up bitch !@

  • Kevin

    …you’re not very familiar with trolls, are you?

    DONT FEED THE TROLLS

    WHAT? That’s Hella funny!

    P.S. why are you so angry? Lulz ;)

    do you actually thumbs up your own comments?

  • More Than Strong Enough

    Uh, Yeah . . . are you JUST figuring that out?

  • Lex Walker

    Are you telling a troll to starve itself? Does that work?

  • Lex Walker

    Right but IM3 was also a known property. If Iron Man was a b-lister, then Ant-Man is C or D-list at best. That movie is going to need all the help it can get.

  • Lex Walker

    I think 2 months is more than enough time for the world to see Avengers 2 and for it to build good will. This is all speculation though, I guess we’ll see in two years. Either way, I’m not gonna complain about that summer lineup.

  • Jr Forney

    Guess not!

  • JBug

    Can someone from Collider please moderate this crap? It’s been getting out of hand lately.

  • JossWhedonCumFart

    FUCK YOU!

  • Strong Enough

    NOPE!

    wow. what a lame thing to do lmao.
