Ant-Man and the Wasp: Online Petition Filed Over Film’s UK Release Date

Marvel fans are not happy with the UK release date for Ant-Man and the Wasp.  So, they have started an online petition asking Marvel Studios to pre-pone the film’s release date.

Notably, Ant-Man and the Wasp is slated to release in the UK on August 3, almost a month after it lands in the United States on July 6. The delay in release date will likely expose fans to some of the film’s critical plot details which will surely ruin their film watching experience.

Launched by Adam Khan, the petition has already got more than 1,300 signatures of its 1,500 goal since it went online four weeks ago. Khan has singled out the Football World Cup as the culprit for the film’s delay.  The World Cup tournament is scheduled to run from June 14 until July 15 this year.

How can we go a month without spoilers?” the online petition reads. “You can watch the World Cup and watch a movie as well.”

The chances of a petition forcing Disney and Marvel Studios to change Ant-Man and the Wasp’s release date are slim. However, the fact that the studio is not new to changing its film’s release date might still raise some hopes among fans.

Earlier this year, the filmmakers changed Avengers: Infinity War’s worldwide release date at the eleventh hour. Infinity War, which was originally slated to release on May 4, premiered a week earlier on April 27 shattering all records left and right.

Well, only time will tell if the online petition can do its work or go in vain.

Marvel Studios Visual Development Supervisor and Concept Artist Andy Park recently shared the front half cover art for Ant-Man and The Wasp’s official art book. The cover in question features the two bug-sized superheroes Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Evangeline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne/Wasp flying into action. It also features the film’s mysterious villain Ghost (Hannah John Kamen).

Directed by Peyton Reed, Ant-Man & The Wasp is set to debut in the U.S. on July 6, 2018.
