‘Ant-Man’ Feature Changes Release Date

‘Ant-Man’ Feature Changes Release Date Originally set for a July 31st, 2015 release date, Ant-Man has moved up its release a bit due to Batman/Superman moving to May 6th, 2016. While Warner Bros. took advantage of that move to put in Peter Pan, which starts Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard, Marvel/Disney is taking no time to give Ant-Man a more plum release date by giving it the July 17th, 2015 date. July releases used to be largely about the 4th of July release date and then smaller films coming afterward, but after several summers of Batman films doing very well there and the larger number of event films coming out during the summer months, the spread has definitely grown. And Marvel will have a lot to prove with this film since it’ll be another of their lesser known properties coming up that doesn’t have a lot of mainstream mindshare.
