Exclusive: ANT-MAN Pushes Back its Principle Photography Start Time 2 Months

Within the last decade it has become common for movie studios to push back a production start date a few weeks, or even a few months, from the originally planned start date. Marvel Studios is no stranger to this either.

Most recently, in 2013, Captain America: The Winter Soldier was to begin filming as early as January but was pushed back to April. The movie was filmed, post-production was on time and the movie met its April 4, 2014 release date without any known issue and is making millions in the worldwide box office.

Currently, Avengers: Age of Ultron has been filming across the globe and Marvel Studios' next production is nearing its own start of principle photography. Scheduled to film in Atlanta, Ant-Man will be the first film production at the new Pinewood Studios facility. However, Ant-Man will not begin filming as soon as many thought.

According to one of The Daily SuperHero's production sources, Ant-Man's start date for has been pushed back from late May to mid-to-late July. No details were provided besides the slight delay of filming. This information is coming from the same production source who accurately told me that Batman vs. Superman would not start filming in February—as many sites reported and claimed it would start, even after its release date delay.

This filming delay for Ant-Man may have something to do with the new Pinewood facility needing a few more weeks of work to be completed but this is an assumption. Or it could be last second script changes which is common too. Regardless, my trip to Atlanta in mid-June to potentially check out public locations for Ant-Man filming is now irrelevant. (Ugh.)

Marvel Studios is still on track to meet its June 17, 2015 release date for Ant-Man even with this 2 month delay. If there is a further delay, then fans can start worrying. Otherwise, it's business as usual for Hollywood.
