'Ant-Man' finally confirmed, gets a release date

By Matthew Dougherty,

Another Marvel superhero known as Ant-Man will be making his debut on the big screen, but you will have to wait until after the sequel to The Avengers to see it.

IGN reports that the new film will hit theaters November 6, 2015, roughly six months after The Avengers 2.

This suggests that the film will not be a part of what Marvel has called “phase 2,” which starts with Iron Man 3 in May 2013. Also being released in 2013 is the sequel to Thor titled Thor: The Dark World. It was announced today that both of the 2013 films would be released in 3D as well.

According to ComingSoon.net, Edgar Wright, the man behind Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz will write and direct the film. Over the summer at San Diego Comic-Con, he screened test footage that got a lot of praise from fans.

No word yet on who will star in the film or how it will fit in to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
