The UK is going to get the next Marvel film a lot later than most countries

We're going to have to wait a bit longer to find out how Ant-Man fits into the Infinity War timeline.

The next Marvel Studios film due for release, Ant-Man and The Wasp starring Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly, will be hitting our cold, windy shores a little bit later than expected according to an updated schedule.

The US and South Africa will be getting the 20th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe first, as it will hit cinemas on the 6th of July.

It will then land in countries across the rest of Europe throughout the same month before finally arriving in the UK on the 3rd of August. The good news is that we won't be the last country to get our hands on the Ant-Man sequel; Japan won't be seeing the film until almost September.

The move is likely due to the World Cup taking place over the summer and different release schedules are not uncommon, especially with the kind of blockbusters Marvel are currently producing.

Let's face it, you still won't have long to wait after Infinity War.

You can watch the trailer for the highly-anticipated MCU instalment, which will see its titular hero team up with his sidekick The Wasp for the very first time, below:
