Edgar Wright's Ant-Man gets a super batty release date

01.23.2014

Here’s a quickie!

Edgar Wright’s ANT-MAN once due to release on July 31, 2015 has now been moved up to July 17, 2015. Who once had that release? A little film called BATMAN VS SUPERMAN. You get the title now? ”Super batty?" Yeah, I’m a riot.

ANT-MAN starring Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas will now go head to head with Joe Wright’s PAN starring Hugh Jackman and maybe Garrett Hudlund. It’s a battle of the Wrights! Who will come out victorious? My money is on ANT-MAN then again Jackman could take the steal. I’ve been wondering what the turnout for ANT-MAN will be. Anyone got any guesses?

Okay, we’ve got tons on BATMAN VS SUPERMAN but what about ANT-MAN? The curiosity meter increased when Douglas signed on to play Hank Pym in the film. I think it makes things more interesting. Rudd will play Scott Lang, a guy who steals the Ant-Man suit in order to save the life of his daughter. If that’s the way Wright goes with it anyway.

Let’s boo boo!

As long as "Pan" isn't an instruction to critics, it could be an interesting box office face-off.
Personally more interested in Ant-Man, but both should find an audience.

You know why Marvel is releasing GOTG and Ant Man now? Because of the success of Thor and Captain America, they realized after the lack of success from The Incredible Hulk that they didn't have 'safe bets' but that people in general just want Mavel universe movies.

If its made by marvel with a marvel character it's a guarenteed 130mil minimum, and that's domestic only.

I never thought how much Paul Rudd looks similar to Michael Douglas - same facial shape, hairstyle, and a great smile. Great casting.

Lots of ANs

PAN vs. ANT-MAN. They should re-release RAN and we'll be sorted.

Could be wrong..

I'm pretty sure July 17th was the day that, "The Dark Knight" was released way back when.

10 million people are already waiting to see Superman vs. Batman just to tell people how much they hated it, never mind the fans that are waiting for it. This is a terrible move by Disney, no matter how well they market Ant-Man.

You went to the trouble of typing this reply, when you could have been noting that Superman Vs. Batman's release date has been changed. When the urge to type strikes you, make sure you aren't making an ass of yourself first.

LordMiz, sorry to say that your comment is a little bit of a fail, I'm afraid! They moved the date for that Batman/Superman movie.

Oh yea, I missed that when I read it. Still a bad move, this should be released in August or early November. I'm a fan, and I'll be there opening weekend, but this doesn't have the mass appeal for a midsummer slot.

come on now?! We are experiencing history. When Marvel had the balls to do something no one ever thought of. Of course i will see Ant-Man. that's not even a question. It's apart of the universe so there will be easter eggs, references, and cameos and whatnot. it's much better than whatever non Wolverine Hugh Jackman is doing.

Marvel you devils you

Moving up the release date is a good idea, but that also depends on how Pan is marketed. I'm expecting a darker retelling given Wright's history as a director which could equate to box-office success putting Ant-Man in the shadow.

This will do well

When the Ant-Man trailer is in front of the most likely a very successful Avengers 2 I'm sure it will benefit from it greatly.

I'm going to guess just about Thor 2 money.

I gotta disagree that this will do "well." 1. Edgar Wright movies typically do poorly at the box office. 2. Ant-man is probably less recognizable than the Green Hornet. Not exactly a great combination. Im not hating, Im speaking objectively, this will underperform by a long shot

Fun fact. Literally only one Edgar Wright movie did "poorly at the box office".

And this time he'll have the Marvel brand to help him out. So I doubt this will do poorly at the box office.

I think it will do well. Douglas in a superhero film should make people really curious. Plus its part of a big Marvellous circus. Wright certainly deserves to become even more recognized than he already is.

slimbo0330, you couldn't be further from the truth. Nevermind that Edgar Wright's movies actually perform quite well at the box office, I believe he's had only one movie that didn't turn a profit. But regardless of the directors, it's a Marvel movie. And Marvel movies still put buts in the seats. I mean there was so much bad press about IM3 and that turned out to be the second highest grossing movie of 2013.
