Ant-Man Release Date Changed. The official release date for Ant-Man (2015) previously announced for the Edgar Wright directed film has changed. The new release date will place the film two weeks after the release (July 17, 2015) of Man of Steel 2 (Superman vs. Batman). Ant-Man will now be released on July 31, 2015. “That’s about two months after Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters…[it will] no longer directly compete with the 24th James Bond film and Peanuts animated film…Disney now has four confirmed titles with Summer 2015 release dates: Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, Inside Out on June 19, Pirates of the Caribbean 5 on July 10 and now this.”

More on Ant-Man:

Biophysicist and Security Operations Center expert Dr. Henry ‘Hank’ Pym decided to become a superhero after discovering a chemical substance that would allow the user to alter his size. Armed with a helmet that could control ants, Pym would shrink down to the size of an insect to become the mystery-solving Ant-Man. He soon shared his discovery with his girlfriend, Janet Van Dyne, who became his crime-fighting partner as the Wasp. The duo would become founding members of the Avengers, fighting recurring enemies such as the mad scientist Egghead, the mutant Whirlwind, and Pym’s own robotic creation Ultron.

While Pym is the original Ant-Man, he has adopted other aliases over the years including Giant-Man, Goliath, Yellowjacket, and the Wasp after Janet’s death in Secret Invasion. Leaving his original persona vacant, his successors have taken up the role of Ant-Man while Pym explored these other identities.
