"Doctor Strange 2", "Black Panther 2" and more: Disney Postpones a Number of Movies

In fact, the release date for "Indiana Jones 5" is almost a full year later

One might have thought that the time of large-scale film postponements had slowly but surely come to an end. Unfortunately, this is not the case, because now Disney is postponing a whole bunch of new movies. Among others, the MCU blockbusters "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" and "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" are affected. While the former will now be released on May 6, 2022 instead of March, fans of "Black Panther" will have to wait an additional two months until November 11. Fans of "Indiana Jones 5" will suffer considerably more, however. The sequel starring Harrison Ford will no longer be released in the summer of 2022, but on June 30, 2023, thus nearly a whole year later than last planned. Other new release dates are "Thor: Love and Thunder" on July 8, 2022, "The Marvels" on February 17, 2023, and "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" on July 28, 2023. Disney cites various production delays as the reason. Of course, this primarily affects the Marvel films, which are known to be linked and build on each other.
