After Warner Brothers moved Man of Steel 2 to the anonymously occupied Marvel release date of May 6, 2016, Marvel has fired back by simply taking that open day.
Ant-Man, previously scheduled for July 31, 2015, will now come to theaters July 17, 2015, the previous release date of Man of Steel 2, where Warner Bros put their new Peter Pan film, putting those head to head.
Marvel did not take this announcement as an opportunity to address that May 6th issue, which does not have an actual movie attached to it for Marvel Studios. For now, it seems, they are staying put, and considering that a release date for an untitled Phase 3 film.
Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym.
