If you’re a Marvel fan who has been anxiously waiting for more and more Marvel Studio movies to come out, get ready for some bad news. Disney has just pushed the release dates for eight different Marvel Studio movies, as well as three other untitled Marvel films, significantly! “Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” is now being released in May of next year, not March, while Thor: Love and Thunder has been pushed to July 2022 and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever won’t be out until November as opposed to July. The other Marvel movies–including The Marvels and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania–won’t come out until 2023. One encouragement in Marvel’s Phase Four is that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, which is Volume 3, will not be affected. Read on to see which MCU films are being pushed further away from audiences!

One “untitled Disney live action” has been removed entirely from the theatrical release schedule (and if this was the stalled Saoirse Ronan Snow White movie, we’re sadly not surprised), while the untitled Indiana Jones movie is moved to June of 2023. The remaining untitled Marvel movie is set to be released in November of 2023 still, while two other untitled Marvel Studio movies have completely been removed from the theatrical release schedule. This does not bode well for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe! All we can do is hope that Spider-man: No Way Home is still set for its release this December (especially after such an intriguing trailer and a promising conspiracy theory). At the very least, we can probably be certain that Marvel Studio’s Eternals isn’t being moved from its November 2021 release date–and perhaps the movie’s long runtime, character development, and epic plot will tide us over!

Which Marvel Studios movie have you been most excited to see? Do you think that Disney is going to make changes to more Marvel movies’ release dates? And what could possibly be the themes for the movies that were just named untitled Marvel film? We certainly hope not, but that seems likely at this rate! Until we learn more, any Marvel fan will have to consider focusing on upcoming theatrical releases like Marvel’s Eternals or Spiderman: No Way Home (optimistically, we’re still hoping that Peter Parker is coming to theaters in two months) to keep your Marvel-loving spirits up.
