We may still be awaiting a lot of details for the upcoming Marvel flick Ant-Man, but a bit of news recently surfaced that provide some exciting possibilities for the film. Ant-Man is poised to be one of the first films in the next phase of films for Marvel, but we’ll have to wait until July 2015 to see it. However, Disney recently moved up the release date from July 31, 2015 to July 17, 2015! While two weeks may not seem like a lot, it’s one of the coveted slots for summer blockbusters, and recently saw another upcoming superhero movie starring a caped crusader and man of steel move out of this weekend.
The other bit of news comes from the rumor mill. Fresh off her reappearance in a starring role for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Evangeline Lilly (‘Lost’) is rumored to score one of the leading female roles for the film. She’s always had a fit physique for Hollywood ladies, and would seem to fit perfectly as a superhero sidekick for the movie. Production doesn’t begin until April, so the specifics are unknown, but one potential rumor has her playing Pym’s daughter and Lang’s love interest.
