They're oddly probably right in holding it back. I can't fathom by, but many people religiously watch football (I am far from one of them).

Generally, I'd think a Marvel fan would choose the film over a bunch of drama queens kicking a ball around a field, but Disney/Marvel likely want to attract a broader audience with the film release, and so this is their plan to do that. Makes sense, even if it is annoying for those of us that couldn't care less about the sport.

Hey, football and the World Cup are still very big things. Something like that would get in the way. After all, I wager that there's those fans watching the World Cup that don't see the Marvel films and the screaming fans as a priority, so they get to enjoy the tournament and possibly see the film later. A win-win for them.

There's very little reason to spoil Ant-Man in an Agents of SHIELD thread. Some minor continuity comments related to SHIELD as an organization, but that's about it.

Well Ireland has to wait to wait till August 3rd to see Ant Man and the Wasp and as the damn World Cup ends on July 15th, this claim that the delay is due to the World Cup doesn't hold water with me.

Would the World Cup really affect the box office?

seeing as the final is in about 30 minutes... no... but they've decided to postpone it by almost a month over here

It wouldn't affect the box office. claiming the release date delay is due to the World Cup is just an excuse that I don't buy for a second!
