Ant-Man and the Wasp is coming out in just a few weeks – in the US, at least.
Fans in the UK are used to getting their Marvel Studios movies a day or two earlier than their Stateside friends, but the people at Disney have decided the Brits have to wait an entire month for the size-changing superhero sequel.
Stars Evangeline Lilly and Paul Rudd aren’t happy about the gap, because impatient fans will end up watching the film illegally in rubbish quality.
“They always do that,” the Wasp actress Lilly told Empire magazine of the late release.
“Then what happens is people just pirate the movie and they see it in the worst way possible, like some shitty version online, instead of going to a theatre.
“They go in the end, but I don’t like that staggering. I’m really going to get to the bottom of this for you. I’m as pissed off about it as you are.”
Rudd added: “I don’t understand. Let me see if we can maybe get the World Cup moved.”
Good luck with that Paul, people reallylove their football, even though people constantly complain about the performance of the players (as if they could do any better).
Ant-Man and the Wasp releases in UK cinemas on August 3, while the US gets it on July 6.
