Now that Batman Vs Superman has pushed back its release date by nearly a year, we should have figured that another summer blockbuster would be moving into its place. Well as it turns out, Ant-Man has indeed pushed his way in to fill the gap.
Marvel has launched “phase two” of their superhero movie series, which will culminate in 2015 with The Avengers: Age of Ultron. One movie that’s been in the works for some time has been Ant-Man, which will be directed by Edgar Wright.
As we’ve reported here on TGD, the next Star Wars film, to be directed by JJ Abrams, is currently casting, and it has a December 18, 2015 release date. As a number of tent pole films are gearing up to start shooting next year, they’re all trying to nail down their casts as fast as possible so they can start shooting as soon as possible.
To many who aren’t familiar with Marvel comics, the concept of a superhero named Ant-Man would probably sound like a goof. There’s probably also people that would confuse him with Atom Ant, the Hanna-Barbera cartoon. But Ant-Man is going to be part of the next phase of Marvel movies, and it’s going to be directed by Edgar Wright for a 2015 release.
Ant-Man is part of Marvel’s next phase of movies, and its estimated time of arrival will be 2015, which is shaping up to be one busy year for genre movies. In case you’ve been living under a rock, 2015 will see the release of the JJ Abrams directed Star Wars, Batman Vs Superman, and Avengers 2.
Edgar Wright, the man who gave us Shaun of the Dead, is just about back with The World’s End, his new comedy, and word on the street is it’s good stuff. It’s also funny to think that we’ve had a number of Armageddon comedies in recent memory, like This is the End, because who knew the end of the world could be so funny?
