It was thought that Marvel might consider squeezing Ant-Man in between Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014, but it has now been confirmed that the film will finally hit theatres on November 6th, 2015. It's worth noting that this is AFTER the release of Joss Whedon's Untitled Avengers Sequel, so whether the character will be introduced in that film beforehand remains to be seen. The studio also confirmed (somewhat predictably) that both Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World will be released in 3D.

Is it 11th June or 6th November? I am never sure about american dates.
Bucht - 10/15/2012, 9:14 AM
Thought it was the 11th of June, forgot you write the month before the day in the US.
So yea I'll guess we'll see Ant-Man as part of P3.
WolvieCBM - 10/15/2012, 9:15 AM
Awesome for Ant-Man.
jimoakley666 - 10/15/2012, 9:17 AM
For [frick]'s sake, three years?

@GarMogoth I was wondering the same. I read that as the 11th of June.
Jolt17 - 10/15/2012, 9:20 AM
For development's sake, I'm totally good with this.
ATrueHero1987 - 10/15/2012, 9:20 AM
So Ant-Man isn't part of phase 2?!pfft. I wouldn't release Iron Man 3 in 3D since, the first 2 weren't but obviously they want as much money as they can get.

"but it has now been confirmed that the film will finally hit theatres on October 15th, 2015"

It says it right there haha XD Anyway he'll prolly have cameo or maybe an after credit scene.Well at least I hope so. XD
TheAbomination - 10/15/2012, 9:25 AM
So Ant-Man will kick-start Phase 3. Interesting move, Marvel.
CharlesLord - 10/15/2012, 9:25 AM
Developmentally this is great for the movie. Theres no need to rush it so it can be out by a 2014 date. I do kinda worry that the interest in the movie wit the GA might not be big if it isnt placed before Avengers 2
OdinsBeard - 10/15/2012, 9:25 AM
hmm ant-man AFTER A2? curious...
blvdnoise - 10/15/2012, 9:26 AM
Hmmmmmmmmmm..
Spideyguy94 - 10/15/2012, 9:27 AM
If ant man is the start on phase 3 then phase 3 will begin 6 months after phase 2 ends. marvel are kicking major ass
ATrueHero1987 - 10/15/2012, 9:28 AM
While I am excited for the next phase of Marvel movies, I will admit that I am a lil disappointed. The only "new" movie that's part of Phase 2 is GOTG. More than likely, there won't be any new avengers(Falcon might join and, as stated above, Ant-Man MIGHT appear). I doubt GOTG will team up with The Avengers in The Avengers 2 but who knows. So Phase 3 should be new characters(starting with Ant-Man/Giant-Man, Black Panther, and etc.)
TheAbomination - 10/15/2012, 9:29 AM
By the way, the release date clearly says November 6th, 2015.
TheAbomination - 10/15/2012, 9:31 AM
Hopefully they'll use Phase 3 to introduce other new characters (ie Black Panther, Dr. Strange, the Nova Corps)
niknik - 10/15/2012, 9:32 AM
Dates are Month,Day,Year, so Ant-Man is November 6th. It SHOULD have been released before the first Avengers film in order to have the CORRECT original line-up, or at the very least introduce the characters in that film. Now they aren't even introduced before the Avengers sequel???

Marvel you effed it up not once but twice. Shame.
Kayo - 10/15/2012, 9:32 AM
this is good news................yeah baby!
niknik - 10/15/2012, 9:34 AM
lol. we're gonna get crap like Ms. Marvel in the Avengers before Ant-Man/Giant-Man and the Wasp. That's effed up.
jimpinto24 - 10/15/2012, 9:36 AM
Awessome! Ant-Man will be in Phase 3! I'm hoping Hank Pym gets to team up with The Avengers in The Avengers 2 or The Avengers 3.
neoroz - 10/15/2012, 9:36 AM
Really disappointed we have to wait till after the avengers 2, really excited to see Ant Man, I know I'm in the minority here, hopefully they'll tease him at the end of avengers2
TheAbomination - 10/15/2012, 9:38 AM
Maybe they'll introduce Ant-Man in Avnegers 2 before giving him his solo film.

WOOO cant wait.
accountnolongerinuse - 10/15/2012, 9:48 AM
I'm excited about this, if only because it means we will have a mere two year gap between new Edgar Wright films.
LMB10 - 10/15/2012, 9:49 AM
Wanted 2014 but better than never.
ThePowerCosmic - 10/15/2012, 9:51 AM
So what if Thanos is before Ultron. they are both super powerful villains, plus I am pretty sure Thanos will not have the infinity guantlet in Avengers 2.

Pym will build Ultron with the power to battle villains like Thanos and then he will turn on the Avengers.
charlie2094 - 10/15/2012, 9:51 AM
Did anyone really expect to see an Ant-Man film before being introduced in an Avengers film? Everyone I know who's heard of it (and hasn't read comics) thinks it sounds incredible stupid and have no intention of watching it. With a name like "Ant-Man" can you blame them without knowing the character?

Assuming he's in the Avengers 2, this is a far smarter way of ensuring the film is a success.
TheBeard - 10/15/2012, 9:52 AM
so he's gotta be in one of these phase 2 movies just enough to get recruited for the Avengers, right???
IronHood - 10/15/2012, 9:53 AM
Oh [frick] no.
ThePowerCosmic - 10/15/2012, 9:54 AM
@ Charlie2094

Great point!
IronHood - 10/15/2012, 9:54 AM
My favorite Avenger missed the first movie, he BETTER NOT miss the second one...
Valandil - 10/15/2012, 9:57 AM
So phase 3 begins... NOW
Cosmic1 - 10/15/2012, 9:59 AM
Still would like to see a submariner flick at some point
GOTG - 10/15/2012, 10:00 AM
ppl stop complaining, u r getting a FRICKIN ANT MAN FILM, ANT-MAN, be grateful its being made and yh sure he probably wont be in Av2 but come on the avengers series is definetly gonna go past the general 3 movie formula, its a box office juggernaut, do not worry eventually we WILL see hawkeye shoot an arrow at someone whilst a man grows from it to imaginable heights
OnLeatherWings - 10/15/2012, 10:01 AM
Charlie2094 has the right idea. For this to come avengers 2 would be a very poor move for the studio and they know it. Im betting he appears in avengers 2 in a big and bad ass way. That's the only way to generate interest in a film like this
AceHunter - 10/15/2012, 10:01 AM
Ant-man's okay, but I think having Pym as Giant-man would have been a much better choice. Maybe they'll do us one better and have him playing both characters in one movie! Now that would be cool...
avenger15 - 10/15/2012, 10:03 AM
Now while I'm abit cross about ant-man coming out after the avengers 2, I think its a good idea because it feels like the type of franchise that could replace iron man after the 3rd one (assuming that it stop's after the 3rd one). Also I think that avengers 3 will be about civil war, assuming that by that time marvel has most of its characters back.
djwood - 10/15/2012, 10:08 AM
What a bunch of [frick]ing BRATS!! You beg for an Antman movie and then you bitch about its release date??? What the [frick] guys! Just be happy you get to see an Antman movie!
gambgel - 10/15/2012, 10:08 AM
I wanted it for 2014, but still good news.

I hope Josh introduces him in Avengers 2. I really want to see Antman on the sequel, instead of waiting 4 more years to see him with the team.

It would be a smart move. lets see what happens.
eviltattooedguy - 10/15/2012, 10:15 AM
I am sorry but ant-man is a supporting character at best. Give us a black panther movie with an assist from antman.
