"Ant-Man" Takes Old Bat vs. Supes Date

When Warner Brothers delayed their "Batman vs. Superman" project from July 17th 2015 to May 6th 2016, the move was seen as something of a slap against Marvel who has marked out the early May release window for several years now.

Today, Disney/Marvel fired back to some extent - moving up Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man" film two weeks from a July 31st 2015 release to a new opening on the 17th - the old (and more lucrative) BvS slot.

"Ant-Man" now faces off against Joe Wright's big-budget "Pan" film starring Hugh Jackman and potentially Garrett Hedlund.
