SDCC12: Marvel Sets Dates for ‘Captain America’ Sequel, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, ‘Ant-Man’ and More!

Lots of info coming out of Comic-Con in San Diego this week. Of course, we’re pretty interested in anything where comics and movies converge so when Marvel makes some announcements, we’re gonna let you know.

As we predicted yesterday, Marvel’s Kevin Feige confirmed August 1, 2014 as the release date for the next super-hero ensemble: Guardians Of The Galaxy. But wait, there’s more.

Edgar Wright said he and Joe Cornish have written Ant-Man and Wright shot a test that he showed to the crowd. Apparently, people loved it and Wright’s description of the tiny hero who “kicks ass one inch at a time.”

But there’s even more. Captain America: The Winter Solder, the confirmed title of the sequel, is set for an April 4, 2014 release. Alan Taylor is set to direct Thor: The Dark World and it will arrive on November 8, 2013.

Also, as we told you before, Shane Black is still hard at work on Iron Man 3 and working towards its release date of May 3, 2013. They also showed footage from the movie which included Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin and Guy Pearce as an as yet unknown bad guy.

How’s that for a whirlwind of announcements? Anyone else need a minute?
