Ever since it was announced that Edgar Wright would be directing an Ant-Man movie, there has been lots of speculation on what the tone of the movie will be. Wright is known for making quirky comedies that aren't always exactly family friendly. In an interview with The Playlist, Wright clarified that while Ant-Man will be funny, it won't be like his other comedies. Wright said, "I think it's funny…I wouldn't say it has any of the comedy that is in my previous but I think it'll be in a different vein. There'll be less swearing in it." After the tone, the next biggest question about Ant-Man has been how the movie will fit within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With The Avengers: Age Of Ultron premiering before Ant-Man, it's already been revealed that Hank Pym won't be in the Avengers and won't create Ultron. The film has also been previously described as operating in a different corner of the Marvel Universe. Wright explained, "I think it's just doing its own thing in the accepted history but it's still part of the other movies and always was. In the time I've been working on it other things have happened in the other movies that could be affected in this. It is pretty standalone in the way we're linking it to the others. I like to make it standalone because I think the premise of it needs time. I want to put the crazy premise of it into a real world, which is why I think Iron Man really works because it's a relatively simple universe; it's relatable. I definitely want to go into finding a streamlined format where you use the origin format to introduce the main character and further adventures can bring other people into it. I'm a big believer in keeping it relatively simple and Marvel agrees on that front." Ant-Man is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on November 6, 2015.
