Disney has announced a wave of release date changes, primarily affecting upcoming Marvel films, so it’s time to adjust your calendars.
Just as it looked like release dates were getting a little more firm Disney has announced a change to several films on their upcoming slate. Some shifts are relatively small, while others make for a much longer wait. All in all, it appears as though this current wave of changes is due to easing up some production schedules and giving things the time they need.
First up is no stranger to release date changes. Indiana Jones 5 is no longer hitting on July 29th. In fact, it’s not longer hitting in 2022 at all. Instead it has secured an Independence Day weekend spot and will launch on June 30, 2023. It’s a bummer, especially since the film was once set to arrive in 2019 and filming on it has been underway for a while now. Alas…
Now, let’s talk about Marvel. Considering the nature of these films, when one gets a delay, they all tend to, so here’s what’s changing:
DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS: May 6, 2022
THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER: July 8, 2022
BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER: November 11, 2022
THE MARVELS: February 17, 2023
ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA: July 28, 2023
UNTITLED MARVEL: November 3, 2023
On top of these, Disney has also taken three films set for 2023 (including another untitled Marvel movie) off their schedule entirely. So yeah, some big-ish moves here, but we’re still getting three Marvel movies a year, so there’s plenty to look forward to!
