Marvel's 'Ant-Man' Takes Vacated 'Batman vs. Superman' Release Date
Briefly: Big and somewhat disappointing news hit last week when Warner Bros. announced that they would be pushing back Batman vs. Superman to May 6th, 2016, where it will go head-to-head with an unknown Marvel film. Now Variety reports the comic book studio that brought us The Avengers is moving their Phase Three film Ant-Man yet again into the vacated July 17th, 2015 release date left behind by the Zack Snyder directed sequel to Man of Steel. The Marvel comics adaptation from director Edgar Wright was already moved from an August 2015 release to July 31st, and now it's been bumped up two weeks. Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas star in the film as two versions of the superhero, and we can't wait to hear more.

As someone who knows nothing about Marvel, Ant-Man seems pretty lame. Any Marvel people here able to tell me if you think he'll be able to look cool in this movieverse?

I'm no expert either, but I think it could work. Just picture a typical movie fight scene, the hero taking on multiple adversaries, only in mid-fight he's shrinking to various sizes to avoid their blows, and instantly growing back to normal size in other to kick their asses. Size-fu...it can make for some pretty visually engaging action sequences, to say the least. Beyond that, Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas have some more than solid acting chops and Edgar Wright is a talented guy. So that also gives the film some serious points.

The test reel that was shown at Comic-Con convinced a lot of people how cool the action can be, especially in the hands of someone like Edgar Wright. If you go look for the video online, it's not too hard to find.

If the writing is right then he will be able to stand "tall" with all of the other heroes. Get it? Because...he can shrink...and wouldn't be tall... *weeps in shame*

Considering the vast flood of HORRIBLE movies that land in theaters I think a new Marvel Studios film has HUGE potential. Especially considering their track record. Now, if DC was making Ant-Man (I know he's not a DC character) it would probably be horrible and 2 years behind schedule. 🙂

If he goes up against The Tick, it should prove to be epic.
