Marvel Delays Entire 2022 Slate, Including Doctor Strange 2 And Black Panther 2
All of Marvel's upcoming releases from 2022 onwards have been pushed back.
Disney has delayed several of its upcoming Marvel movies, as well as non-MCU releases such as the latest Indiana Jones film. Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, Thor: Love And Thunder, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever have all shifted to later dates in 2022.
Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness was previously scheduled to arrive in March next year, but will now hit theaters on May 6. Thor: Love And Thunder will move back to August 7 from a June date, while Black Panther: Wakanda Forever shifts from August to November 11.
Inevitably, the result of these delays also has a knock-on effect on the Marvel movies that were scheduled to arrive in late 2022 and 2023. The Marvels moves to February 2023, with Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania now arriving in July 2023.
In addition, Disney has also pushed back the release of the currently-titled fifth Indiana Jones film an entire year. It will now hit theaters on June 30, 2023. The film, which stars Harrison Ford and is directed by James Mangold, is currently in production in Italy.
The studio has also removed two untitled non-Marvel movies from the schedule. The full list of new release dates is:
- Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness 5/6/22
- Thor: Love And Thunder 7/8/22
- Black Panther: Wakanda Forever 11/11/22
- Untitled Indiana Jones 6/30/23
- The Marvels 2/17/23
- Ant-man And The Wasp: Quantumania 7/28/23
- Untitled Marvel Movie 11/3/23
While Marvel fans will have to wait a little longer to see next year's batch of movies, there are still two more MCU films set for release in 2021: Eternals hits theaters on November 5, with Spider-Man: No Way Home releasing on December 17. In addition, the Hawkeye TV show premieres on Disney+ on November 24.
