Okay people I hope you’re ready for more movie news because I have more on the Marvel side of things and while it is just a tiny update, I think it is worth mentioning. The following info comes from superherohype:
“When Warner Bros. Pictures announced last Friday evening that the studio was pushing back Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman from a July 17, 2015 release to May 6, 2016, they also said that they were moving Joe Wright’s Peter Pan movie into the July 17 slot.
We didn’t think other studios would pass up the opportunity to take that date as well, however, and that is exactly what happened today, as Marvel Studios announced that director Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man has been moved up two weeks from July 31, 2015 to July 17, 2015.”
So it seems like we’ll be getting the next Marvel film in 2015 a little earlier by two weeks, nice. The only strange things about this is the fact that Ant-Man marks the step into Phase Three in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it is happening just two months after Avengers 2. I am I the only one that finds that to be a bit strange? Prior to these films there has been at least a year between Phases like how there was a year between The Avengers and Iron Man 3, but next year we’re hoping from one Phase to another. That kind of transition is gonna be a bit weird. That being said, considering how interconnected Ant-Man is to the Avengers in the comics and probably the future of this cinematic universe, it is no surprise that these films would be so close together and hopefully there will be easter eggs or post-credits scenes about one or the other.
