We just reported here on TGD about Ant-Man moving into the July 17, 2015 release that’s been vacated by Batman Vs Superman. As you probably know by now, the release date of B V S has been pushed back nearly a year, and the only other competition that day is a reboot of Peter Pan.
As a source at Warner Brothers told the Hollywood Reporter, “Hugh Jackman always delivers indelible performances that resonate with audiences. We know he will create a Blackbeard who will be a powerful presence in this original Peter Pan adventure.”
In addition to hitting the high seas, Jackman will also star in Neill Blomkamp’s next sci-fi thriller, Chappie, and of course, he’ll be back as our beloved Wolverine in X-Men: Days of Future Past, which hits theaters this May 23rd.
