Disney Has Delayed All 2022 Marvel Cinematic Universe Films

Disney Has Delayed All 2022 Marvel Cinematic Universe Films

Disney has delayed six Marvel and removed the release dates for two others in a major shake-up of their forthcoming slate.

While we're talking quite a way into the future for some of these movies, this will no doubt still be a bit confusing for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

So, we know that Marvel and Disney like to meticulously plan out their release schedules, because sometimes one or other movie is contingent on the other for set-up purposes, continuity, and the general flow of the world-building.

That meant that the pandemic in 2020 caused everything to go slightly out of whack, and it seems like they've had to have another rethink now, as well.

So, let's start at the beginning. Try to keep up.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was originally planned for release in March of next year. Now we'll see it on 6 May.

That was supposed to be the release date for Thor: Love and Thunder, but that will now touch down in cinemas on 8 July 2022.

This means that they've taken the release date that was originally reserved for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which will now hit the screen on 11 November.

The Marvels - the sequel to Captain Marvel - has now been kicked down the road and out of 2022 altogether, and will be released on 17 February 2023.

Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has also been delayed and will now be pushed back until 28 July 2023.

There are also two as-yet-untitled Marvel flicks that have been moved out of the calendar altogether, and one other will be released on 3 November 2023.

We're not sure what they are, but the one aimed at early November has actually been moved a week forward.

Reports suggest that this is nothing to do with concerns regarding the box office, but to do with production instead.

Outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the new Indiana Jones film has also been put back, as well as an untitled live-action movie, and a 20th Century film.

To be honest, while this might be a bit of a disappointment to Marvel fans around the world, it should also be received with some understanding, because - as we all know - the last few years haven't been easy.
