This news is huge for audiences globally, as it pushes back the originally stated releases of Marvel films and movies that are still years out from being released.
While upcoming movies like Eternals (2021) and Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) are not affected by these delays, Hollywood is in for a major shake-up, as more production studios delay the releases of their movies after the global pandemic that’s radically changed the box office.

Marvel fans are eagerly waiting for more movies featuring Marvel’s Avengers/Earth’s Mightiest Heroes like Star-Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) — thanks to the Multiverse spurred by Loki.
Thor: Love and Thunder (2022), Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022), The Marvels (2023), and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (2023) are mixing all of Marvel’s characters in a superhero shake like Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019) to introduce iconic characters, like Daredevil (Charlie Cox) and the X-Men, into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Fans will have to wait an extra few months for upcoming Marvel movies and an entire year for the Indiana Jones 5 movie to hit theaters. While there’s no word on how this will affect the streaming service Disney+ and upcoming content featuring Marvel characters, Pixar, and more.
While there’s no explanation for the delays, continue to watch for updates from Disney, Marvel, and more alike to see what’s next for these upcoming movies.
