Ant-Man: November 6, 2015
Marvel's miniature hero "Ant-Man" has finally set a date to make his big screen debut - November 6th 2015.
Disney has just issued a press release about various films on their upcoming schedule with the big news being that release date for the Edgar Wright-directed adaptation. The project will join "The Avengers" sequel in May as Marvel's two films for 2015.
So will Ant-Man be introduced in Avengers 2 then have his own film or will he have his solo film on the heels of whatever fallout there is from TA2 film.
I'm also curious is it's still a Phase 2 film or now being positioned as the first film in Phase 3?
I'm going with still Phase 2 for now.
Well it took them 4 months from the point they gave this film a firm date(back in October '12) till just this past weekend to solidify which Phase Ant-Man would appear.
I'm not surprised it turned out to be Phase 3 but I do wonder what took them so long to announce it?
It sounds like the only real news is that Ant-Man is the first official film of Phase 3
while teasing Dr.Strange for future confirmation of dates/casting/directing.
Can we rule out a cameo first appearance by Pym or Lang in Phase 2? One could appear and we still wouldn't technically get Ant-Man in costume on screen till 2015.
