If you've been following the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then you may have noticed their recent shift in release dates. So far, six movies that were previously scheduled for release have been delayed until later dates.
One of the biggest delays was for Blade, which originally scheduled a November 2023 release date before being postponed to September 6, 2024. Another movie with an extended delay is The Marvels, which was originally set for today but will now release on November 10.
Marvel fans have been eagerly awaiting Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, to hit theaters. It quickly became one of the biggest movies in MCU history and quickly became a smash hit at the box office.
Marvel Studios' first female-led superhero film was directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, with Geneva Robertson-Dworet penning the screenplay.
Captain Marvel was an enormous hit, despite some online criticism. It tapped into the feminist movement of the 1970s and challenged what could be considered acceptable for a superpowered hero.
Marvel Studios recently announced that they will be delaying the release of their highly anticipated sequel The Marvels for a third time. Originally scheduled to hit theaters on 29 July 2023, The Marvels has now been postponed until 10 November 2023.
It is no shock that Disney, the parent company of Marvel Studios, would reshuffle their release schedule for some of the studio's most eagerly anticipated films. But it is especially heartbreaking when this change affects Avengers: Endgame.
Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd and Brie Larson star in this epic and monumental cliffhanger from Marvel Universe history.
In addition to Endgame, Secret Wars was also delayed six months. Originally scheduled to hit theaters on November 7, 2025, it has since been rescheduled for May 1, 2026.
That means the only Marvel movies currently scheduled for release this year are Avengers: Endgame, Ant-Man 3, and Deadpool 2. That doesn't make for a bad thing though; it leaves plenty of movies in production!
Avengers: Infinity War is one of the most eagerly awaited movies in Marvel Cinematic Universe. It follows The Avengers as they fight to protect Earth from threats too great even for any hero to handle alone.
The film also introduces Thanos, an intergalactic purple titan who wants to gather all six Infinity Stones and use them to rule over the entire universe.
This new villain has already left an impact on fans and become part of our collective consciousness. However, he's not the only Marvel villain to have made such an impact on culture.
Infinity War was supposed to be released in May, but has been postponed yet again! Now it will finally hit theaters on May 1, 2026.
Sony has officially moved Spider-Man: Homecoming up one month, from November 5 to December 17, 2021. This marks the first time either a solo Spidey film or entry in the MCU has been released over the holidays since Spider-Man: Homecoming debuted back in 2016.
Spider-Man: No Way Home has been moved up a week to February 11th, 2022 from its original release date of July 16th 2021. Thor: Love and Thunder has also been postponed one week to February 11th, 2022 while Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will now open on March 25th 2022.
Though not as significant as the delay of Black Widow, this decision will have an immense effect on Marvel's Phase 4 timeline and could potentially disrupt movies like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Deadpool 2.
It's not unheard-of for major MCU movies to be delayed, particularly during peak holiday periods. But when Ant-Man 3 was delayed until November, fans were understandably miffed - and rightfully so.
The third installment of Marvel's beloved series, previously titled Ant-Man 3, stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Evangeline Lily as Hope Van Dyne/Wasp. Their adventures continue as they venture deeper into the Quantum Realm, encounter strange new creatures, and embark on an incredible journey that will test their mettle beyond what they ever dreamed possible.
It also introduces the MCU's next major villain - Kang, played by Lovecraft Country actor Jonathan Majors. Kang is expected to play an integral part of a major story arc that will span multiple MCU movies, TV shows and years.
Marvel Studios' Phase 5 is heavily focused on Captain Marvel, but it appears they have taken a step back to assess their future slate. According to The Wrap report, The Marvels, the follow-up to 2019's Captain Marvel and 2022's Ms. Marvel series, has been delayed from July 28 until November 10.
Fans are disappointed to hear about yet another delay, but James Gunn believes it could be for the best. This film may be his last as director before moving on from DC and Marvel Studios for full-time work with Warner Bros.
In the new film, all of the main cast is back including Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Vin Diesel as Groot and Pom Klementieff as Mantis. Additionally there is Adam Warlock with his gold-skinned creator Ayesha as well as a brand-new villain named High Evolutionary.
Disney has once again moved Deadpool 2's release date in an effort to stay current with the MCU. Now the film will hit theaters on November 8, 2024.
Marvel Studios is taking over the X-Men franchise from Fox after it was acquired by Disney in 2019. However, they have expressed a strong desire to preserve the original Deadpool continuity as long as Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman remain involved.
This means The Merc With the Mouth will remain a pop culture-spouting, fourth-wall breaking comic book movie with plenty of graphic violence, harsh language, heavy drug use and sexual nudity. However, there are still plenty of jokes and moments that will get you in the spirit!
The Fast & Furious series has taken street racing and made it into an action blockbuster. Each entry has amplified the action set pieces while discarding physics, leading us to where we are today with Vin Diesel's latest car-chasing, heist movie.
Universal Pictures has again postponed the release of The Fate of the Furious. The ninth film in the franchise will now hit theaters on April 2, 2021 instead of May 22nd, 2021.
Though this delay is a major setback, Universal likely made the right decision by delaying release until after the coronavirus outbreak has subsided and moviegoers can start returning in large numbers. This should help boost the film's box office performance during a summer when other Hollywood franchises may also be affected.
Fast & Furious franchise is hugely successful overseas, especially China where over 70,000 theaters have shut down due to the coonavirus since January and earned over $400 million for both Fast & Furious 7 and F9. So while it's no shock that the movie has been delayed again, this news still comes as a disappointment to fans of the series.
Last weekend, The Meg finally made its long-awaited debut at the box office. Starring Jason Statham and Li Bingbing, this shark tale earned another $13 million to bring its 17-day domestic total up to $105m.
Despite its shark-centric focus, The Meg does have some redeeming qualities. One major one is that it knows how to craft an engaging narrative.
Jaws and Jumanji both achieved this feat admirably, showing that you can have an exciting action adventure film with character development as well. This is no easy feat!
But it doesn't have to be as challenging as one might think. Director Jon Turteltaub, who made National Treasure and The Sorcerer's Apprentice in the early 21st century, ensures his film has an element of fun even during its most serious scenes.
