The MCU is known for producing many movies and series in an impressively short time. This does not always work out smoothly: In the recent past, it often happened that Marvel had to postpone the one or other film, sometimes by several months or even years.
Via Twitter, Marvel Studios got in touch last week to reveal the postponement of one of the upcoming MCU films. The film in question is "The Marvels", unofficially known as "Captain Marvel 2". In spite of the release of a new poster showing the three main characters, the simultaneously announced postponement comes as a surprise, especially since no official explanation has been provided by Marvel as to why it has been pushed back from July to November 2023. However, it is considered likely that difficulties in post-production are the cause for the delay of the theatrical release. Moreover, it also helps to balance Marvel's ambitious schedule, which still includes "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3", "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse", "Kraven the Hunter" and "Loki" Season 2. The release of "The Marvels" thus frees up some time in the summer and brings 2023 to a proper close with the film.
In terms of story, the movie revolves around the reunion of three well-known characters: Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel, Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel, and Monica Rambeau, who is already known from "WandaVision". Khan and Rambeau have their very own history with the mighty superheroine, who has previously made a solo appearance in the MCU. Also, the movie picks up where the MCU series "Ms. Marvel" left off, which came out last year. It will get to the bottom of why characters suddenly change locations when using superpowers. In addition to Brie Larson, Iman Vellani and Teyonah Parris, the movie will see the return of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, after connections to "The Marvels" will also be made in this summer's MCU series "Secret Invasion".
The movie is scheduled for release on November 10, 2023.
