[[wysiwyg_imageupload:10319:]]Marvel Studios and Disney have moved up the release date for Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man movie from November 6, 2015 to July 31, 2015, just two weeks following the big Warner Bros. debut of the new Batman with Ben Affleck in the Man of Steel sequel.
Marvel Studios also has The Avengers 2 debuting May 1, 2015, and Disney has yet to announce a release date for Star Wars: Episode VII, thought to be in May as well, with December or even 2016 release dates also rumored.
With the release date on Ant-Man moved up we can expect production to begin sooner which means casting announcements should also be forthcoming.
No plot details are known, but Edgar Wright seemed to hint the villain of the film might be Scott Lang.
