More Marvel-related movies will be facing delays due to the ongoing pandemic. Some of these movies have already been delayed before but had its dates reshuffled again.
Some movies that have just announced delayed release dates include the untitled sequel to Spider-Man: Far From Home and Spider-Man: Into the Spideverse 2.
The Far From Home sequel will now release on November 5, 2021, postponed from July 16, 2021. Into the Spiderverse 2, on the other hand, will now have its release on October 7, 2022, from April 8, 2022.
These delays aren’t the worst of the bunch, as its release dates are still within the year. Of course, these movies may delay yet again if the situation calls for it.
Apart from the Spider-Man movies, Disney/ Marvel have made some changes to their intial reshuffle for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) Phase 4 of movies.
Disney shared previously that it has delayed most of its movies to a date that has previously been occupied by another movie.
These Marvel movie delays mostly go on until Thor: Love and Thunder, which was pushed to February 28, 2020. That is, until its dates were reshuffled again.
The fourth Thor film will now see a February 11, 2022 release date. That bumps its release up by two weeks.
Unfortunately, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness will now see a March 25, 2022 release date.
Initially meant to release on May 7, 2021 (now occupied by the Shang-Chi movie), then pushed to November 5, 2021, it has now been delayed by nearly a year.
The pandemic is causing all sorts of trouble for the movie industry, forcing new schedules to be put up. This likely won’t be the last we hear of movies getting delayed.
