Ant Man

Marvel

Marvel's comic-book-to-screen universe kept right on expanding Monday, with Ant-Man being given a real, live release date: Nov. 6, 2015.

Edgar Winter (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), who's long been involved with the looong-in-the-works project, is set to write and direct. 

"I think given [Wright's] ability to make cult-classic films…in Ant-Man, they see that potential, so they say let's go big with that," says Ben Huber, a writer for Fanboy.com.

Clark Gregg's Agent Coulson to live in S.H.I.E.L.D. series

No cast has been announced.

As scheduled by the Marvel-partnered Disney, Ant-Man will arrive some six months after Joss Whedon's Avengers sequel, and go head to head in theaters with the DreamWorks animated film, B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherwordly Operations.

The studio on Monday also formally noted the titles of the Thor and Captain America sequels. As announced at San Diego Comic-Con, the films will be known as Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, respectively. 

The annoucements come after the close of New York Comic-Con, which was highlighted by news that The Avengers' Clark Gregg will return as Agent Phil Coulson to Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series.  

Ant-Man, originally the tale of a size-shifting scientist named Dr. Henry Pym, has been on Wright's radar for more than five years. The project's stock rose over the summer as The Avengers' box office grew; test footage was screened at San Diego in July.
