Marvel's 'Ant-Man' Gets A 2015 Release Date

Marvel hero Hank Pym AKA Ant-Man will get his shot at the big screen in 2015, Disney announced today as they updated their slate of upcoming films. Also revealed: You'll be able to see Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 in 3-D. Yawn. Let's hear more about Ant-Man!

I'll be honest: Even after Disney/Marvel unveiled the Ant-Man logo card at Comic-Con alongside the likes of Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, and Guardians of the Galaxy I had my doubts that Edgar Wright's long-gestating superhero pic would make it to the screen in my lifetime. Now that it's got a release date — albeit one in 2015, which is only three years away but feels like the distant future (seriously, how are we almost to the year 2015?!) — it finally feels like Ant-Man is happening.

Also announced in Disney's press release were dates for the Phineas and Ferb movie (moved up from 2014 to July 28, 2013), Saving Mr. Banks (December 20, 2013), DisneyNature's Bears (April 18, 2014), "Disney Animation Untitled" (November 7, 2014) and "Pixar Animation Untitled" (November 25, 2015).

Ant-Man, meanwhile, is slated to hit theaters on November 6, 2015. And while it's unlikely since it came from an entirely different character who inherited the Ant-Man legacy (I know, I know), I'm holding out hope for a few scenes like this, because LOL.
