Pull out those calendars because we’ve got another Marvel Studios flick release date to mark down. Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man will march into theaters on November 6th 2015. That positions it some six months after the debut of Joss Whedon’s Marvel’s The Avengers 2. No telling whether the Ant Man character will feature in any of the movies leading up to his solo film, but stranger things have happened. Theoretically, Wright could say the little guy played a pivotal role in the Avengers’ tussle with Thanos after the fact, citing minuteness for his perceived absence.
Marvel also released an official synopsis for next November’s Thor: The Dark World.
Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
Everything, you say? Ominous!
Oh, and if you were wondering. Both Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World will be offered in 3D.
