20 Oct - Disney and Marvel recently announced that several of their previously scheduled films have now been re-arranged for new dates.
The two giants revealed that "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness", which was originally slated to be released on 25 March 2022, will now be delayed to 6 May 2022, resulting in Taika Waititi's "Thor: Love and Thunder", which was supposed to open on the said date, to be pushed to 8 July 2022.
On the other hand, "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever", which was supposed to have that July date, will now be released on 11 November 2022, facing off DC's "The Flash" which will premiere the week before, while "The Marvels", which was supposed to be released in November 2022, will be released the year after on 17 February 2023.
17 February 2023 was originally given to "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania", which means now the film will be released instead in July 2023.
The only Marvel movie that is sticking to the same release date would be "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3" on 5 May 2023.
As to why the change was made, Marvel's Kevin Feige stated simply, "It's production shifts and changes, and because we have so many slots, we can just shift slots... so instead of there being three months between Marvel movies, there will be five months between Marvel movies, and I think that we can all handle it."
