Marvel's Ant-Man is back in the headlines for more damage control, by Marvel Studios. Due out in less than one year, the studios has not begun filming on Ant-Man. Because of this, many fans have expressed concern about the production schedule running out of time in order to make its release date next summer.
The Daily SuperHero recently reported if Ant-Man cannot begin filming next month (in August), only then should fans be concerned about the production finishing in time for its current release date. Now, studio president Kevin Feige has confirmed fans shouldn't worry about the time table, in a new interview with Empire Magazine.
Feige quickly talked about the current production schedule of Ant-Man.
"Our schedule [for Ant-Man] is not that dissimilar right now from Iron Man 3 and the original Avengers [movie]. And Ant-Man is not that visually complicated as either of those two films."
In other words, a lot of pre-production work has already been put into the development of Ant-Man and the visual effect team has already been working on Ant-Man for a bit now. The changing of directors from Edgar Wright to Peyton Reed did cause principle photography to be delayed from May to mid-August but there's still no reason to be worried about Ant-Man not hitting its release date next July.
Ant-Man is set to begin filming mid-August in Atlanta and has a release date set for July 17, 2015.
