Marvel and Disney have decided to push Ant-Man and The Wasp back a month because of The World Cup. This means fans in the UK will get the movie a month after the rest of the world. True Marvel fans, like myself, are upset and disappointed by this, as after seeing the beauty that is Avengers: Infinity War, we want questions answered and more importantly, to enjoy the movie. How can we go a month without spoilers? You can watch the World Cup and watch a movie as well.

I'm not sure whether Marvel has moved the release date of Ant-Man & The Wasp around because of the World Cup or - more likely, in my opinion - because it would clash with Disney's Incredibles 2 (due out July 13 in the UK, almost a month after it's debut in the States).
Whoever is doing the release schedule for Disney has dropped the ball here either way.
Bumping the Incredibles sequel back has created this issue, especially as I reckon there's more chance of an overlap between Incredibles fans and Marvel fans than there is with hardcore football fans who must see every single match of the World Cup.
If you're a Marvel fan in the UK - whether you see the films in the cinema or not - please consider signing this petition and/or sharing it.
Maybe we can get the attention of Disney/Marvel and make them reconsider the delayed release of Ant-Man & The Wasp.
I, for one, don't want to have to spend a month dodging spoilers before I get to see it on the big screen.
Current Release Dates:
- Incredibles 2: June 15 (July 13 - UK)
- Ant-Man & The Wasp: July 6 (August 3 - UK)
