Ant-Man takes Batman Vs Superman's original release date

Edgar Wright's Ant-Man movie has seen its release date move forward again...

For the second time, Marvel has brought forward the release date of Edgar Wright's big screen take on Ant-Man. The movie had recently settled on a release date of July 31st 2015. However, with Batman Vs Superman being put back to 2016, that's left an earlier slot open and available. And Ant-Man has been moved forward to capitalise on that.

Thus, you can now expect to see the Ant-Man movie, starring Paul Rudd, from July 17th 2015. That puts it head to head with Joe Wright's live action Peter Pan origin story, Pan. Ant-Man versus Peter Pan, then. That rhymes.

Who needs another bleedin' Peter Pan movie!

Well I know who I'm backing!

Edgar Wright vs Joe Wright

Can I hear a wut wuuuuuuuut?

Save me Smee! It's the Ant!

Wut wuuuuuuuut.

Indeed! We've had 'Hook', 'Peter Pan' (2003), the 'Neverland' miniseries and season 3 of 'Once Upon A Time'. Only if they give us the more grimm original version of the story (Peter Pan killed Lost Boys for fun in the original print) I might go see it in the cinema.
Just kiddin'. Ant-Man it is!

Now, a proper 'Bleeding Peter Pan' sounds like it could be a winner. Perhaps Stallone could make some sort of Pater Pan/Rambo crossover; a hardcore, full on actionfest. May I suggest napalm instead of fairy dust?

I reckon a hardcore version of all the classics should be in the pipeline; The Wizard of Oz, Pater Pan, Bedknobs and Broomsticks...

Utter class!

Everyone in the audience, clap your hands and shout: 'We do believe in zombies, we do believe in zombies!'
