Ant-Man may see a spike again at the box-office in the middle of August through late September when it premieres in Italy, South Korea, Austria, Greece, China, and Japan.  China is one of the biggest movie-going nations outside of the United States.  In the most populous country in the world, American action films have shown to be very lucrative and successful.

People may think that any comic book-related movie being released in the 21st century is going to do well.  However, Fantastic Four, another Marvel property being produced by rival studio 20th Century Fox, which was released this week is being labeled as one of the worst comic book movies ever.  Some say it could be one of the worst movies of the year overall.  Like Ant-Man, Fantastic Four had its share of production problems, but Ant-Man with its winning team of Feige and company, proved that Marvel Studios still has the golden touch.

Released in the United States on July 17, 2015, Ant-Man closes out Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The film is directed by Peyton Reed, written by Gabriel Ferrari, Andrew Barrer, and Adam McKay, and stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang / Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, Corey Stoll as Darren Cross / Yellowjacket, Bobby Cannavale as Paxton, Michael Peña as Luis, Judy Greer as Maggie, Tip “T.I.” Harris as Dave, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, Wood Harris as Gale, Jordi Mollà as Castillo, and Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym / Ant-Man.
