Why Was Ant-Man Left Out of Marvel Phase Two?

Geek Binge: Earlier this week, something we’ve been waiting for for years was finally announced; the release date for Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man. Just to remind you what Ant-Man is (don’t worry, he’s so obscure that it’s pretty easy to forget), Ant-Man is the (apparently comedic) adaptation of the Marvel superhero who can grow to any size that he wants. The script is written by Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim) and Joe Cornish (Attack the Block), which is truly going to be a pairing to behold following the pair’s previous films. And well we knew that Ant-Man would be Wright’s next film following The World’s End, not until today did we find out a release date: November 6, 2015. Which, if you’re paying attention, puts it right after The Avengers 2 in terms of release date. Which means that Ant-Man won’t be a part of that phase, and will instead kick-off Marvel’s THIRD phase. So why did Marvel choose to position Ant-Man in this way? Why couldn’t he fit into Marvel’s second phase?
