Ant-Man has moved to a new spot on the release calendar, which should please Marvel fans as it is a full four months earlier than expected.

July 31st, 2015!

For those of you who just couldn't wait until November, the Marvel hero will be suiting up months earlier.

It was originally scheduled for November 6, neck-and-neck with Bond 24. But with Sony not budging and the series basically at an all time high right now (Skyfall being acclaimed as one of the best Bond features) Disney was forced to move to another date.

This comes a mere two months after Avengers: Age of Ultron, Joss Whedon's sequel to his highly-successful 2012 blockbuster.

It is coming just TWO WEEKS after Batman vs Superman, which isn't the best move. And because the title will take Disney's marketing muscle to create commercial appeal, it could possibly be overshadowed by the Man of Steel follow-up. This is not a good sign considering Ant-Man is planned to be used throughout the Marvel universe after his solo film.

Ant-Man would've been tackling Disney itself with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which was originally scheduled for July 10. Disney has since removed it from the July schedule, not because it has a head-on collision with Ant-Man, but because apparently the film is having script issues and will be moved to sometime in Summer 2016, a smart move considering 2015 is already way too crowded.

What are thoughts on the new date? Happy you don't have to wait the extra 4 months? Shout it out in the comments below!
