Without casting any actors at this time, Walt Disney Studios announced the release date for Marvel Studios and Edgar Wright’s “Ant-Man” film. The microscopic superhero will take to the big screen on November 6th, 2015.

In mid-May, we announced that an Ant-Man movie was one step closer to becoming reality, which writer/director Edgar Wright (“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”) debuted unfinished test reel footage at July’s San Diego Comic-Con.

Here is the basic synopsis for the film.

Biochemist Dr. Hank Pym uses his latest discovery, a group of subatomic particles, to create a size-altering formula. Though his first self-test goes awry, he develops an instrument that helps him communicate with and control insects.

While Ant-Man is a founding member of “The Avengers,” he did not appear in Joss Whedon’s film. Hopefully this will be rectified after he gets his own solo feature. The big screen adaptation will be an action/adventure, which will incorporate some comedic elements. Special Effects will be critical to the film’s success.

“Ant-Man” will open in theaters on November 6th, 2015. Casting is scheduled to begin soon. Joe Cornish and Edgar Wright wrote the screenplay based on characters and story ideas created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Edgar Wright directs.
