Marvel has announced that they are moving up the release of ANT-MAN from July 31, 2015 to July 17, 2015. This is no doubt due to the recent casting of Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and the positive feedback from this choice. As more news and stories emerge about the film, it only makes sense for Marvel to capitalize on this in a constructive manner and give us what we want, Ant-Man sooner.
2 weeks is not a huge margin by any means, since we’re still over a year and a half away from release, but in the July movie season, that could mean life or death for a film. Forward is always better than backwards, ask any DC movie fan (Batman/Superman film was recently pushed back over 6 months to a May 2016 release), so we say bring it on!
Do you think Marvel has another hit in Ant-Man for 2015 or will it not size up to Marvel’s other films?
