Marvel and Disney have some major films coming in the next two years, and now some of them we will have to wait even longer for now. From the look of it, there is no cause for concerned. It seems like Disney/Marvel just wanted a little breathing room, and get some better looks for films.
Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange and The Multiverse of Madness moves from March 25th 2021, to become the kickoff of the summer movie season on May 6th 2022. This shows a lot of confidence in the film to go from a spring release, which wasn’t bad in it’s own right, to kicking off summer!
Taika Waititi’s Thor Love & Thunder which was originally slated to kick off summer, moves to July 8th 2022, which is a big move for it as well. The week after the 4th of July will still have competition as Minions: The Rise of Gru will be in it’s second week.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will move from July 8th back nearly 4 months to November 22, 2022. As Ryan Coogler is set to wrap production later this month, this gives him more room to finish post production. This move puts it into a slight competition with WB/DC’s The Flash which hits theaters 2 weeks before on November 4th.
The Black Panther move will shift the Captain Marvel sequel The Marvels back to 2023, on February 17th, which right now gives it no competition.
Antman And the Wasp: Quantumania will now move from February 17th, to mid summer release of July 28th 2023, also set for no competition.
The one other Marvel move is they have shifted an Untitled Movie from November 10th 2023, to November 3rd 2023. They have also completely removed 2 Untitled Marvel Films from their scheduled dates of July 14th 2023, and October 6th 2023.
And to wrap up the musical dates of movies, Disney has moved Indiana Jones 5 from it’s shared release date of July 29th 2022 where it went up against WB/DCs Black Adam, to nearly a year away to independence day weekend June 30th 2023.
