Doctor Strange 2, Thor: Love And Thunder, Black Panther 2, And More Delayed
Marvel Studios has announced several delays to its upcoming slate of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, including Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and more.
This news comes by way of IGN, which reports a total of six MCU delays alongside a massive delay for Indiana Jones 5. The latter has been delayed by almost an entire year, moving from July 29, 2022 to June 30, 2023.
As far as MCU delays go, the following six movies were delayed and as you can see below, most weren’t delayed by too much (especially compared to Indiana Jones 5’s delay):
- Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has been delayed from March 25, 2022 to May 6, 2022.
- Thor: Love and Thunder has been delayed from May 6, 2022 to July 8, 2022.
- Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has been delayed from July 8, 2022 to November 11, 2022.
- The Marvels has been delayed from November 11, 2022 to February 17, 2023.
- Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has been delayed from February 17, 2023 to July 28, 2023.
- An untitled Marvel movie has been moved up from November 10, 2023 to November 3, 2023.
As you can see, it seems like each of these MCU movies were shifted back to take the place of the movie set to release after it. According to IGN, Disney also removed two unannounced Marvel movies from its original MCU slate entirely (the two movies were set for July 28, 2023 and October 6, 2023).
It's important to note that The Eternals is still set to hit theaters on November 5 and Spider-Man: No Way Home's premiere remains December 17. Also of note, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3's release date is still May 5, 2023.
And speaking of Guardians of the Galaxy, check out Game Informer’s coverage of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which releases on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC next week. Read about how Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a whopping 150GB download on PC after that and then check out the launch trailer released for it, which seems to tease an appearance from Adam Warlock.
