Marvel pushes back every film in its 2022-2023 slate


Disney on Monday announced its revised slate of upcoming movies until 2028, which reveals the delay in the release date of several Marvel movies by a few months.

The list includes Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 4 films set for 2022 and 2023 premiere, starting off with Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, which replaces Thor: Love and Thunder, which, in turn, replaces Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

According to a report by CNET, most films were pushed back only for months. The major adjustment, however, ultimately affected two untitled projects, which were initially scheduled for Oct. 6, 2021 and July 23, 2023, but are now removed from the lineup completely.

In an interview with Variety during the Eternals premiere on Monday, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige said that the shift is simply a domino effect of the disruptions in productions brought about by the pandemic.

“It’s production shifts and changes, and because we have so many slots, we can just shift slots,” Feige said.

Other films included in list are the following:

  • Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness was moved from March 25, 2022 to May 6, 2022.
  • Thor: Love and Thunder was delayed to two months from May 6, 2022 to July 8, 2022.
  • Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which was previously dated on July 8, 2022, has been moved to Nov. 11, 2022.
  • The Marvels, which was previously slated for Nov. 11, 2022 was rescheduled to Feb. 17, 2023.
  • Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, previously scheduled to premiere on Feb. 17, 2023, was pushed back to July 28, 2023.
  • Another untitled film, previously set for Nov. 10, 2023, has been moved to Nov. 3, 2023.
