Disney changes the due dates for Marvel movies, Star Wars films, and Avatar sequels

June 15, 2023: On Tuesday, Disney announced a shake-up of its movie release calendar, holding several entries in the Avatar, Marvel, and Star Wars franchises.

The company still needs to embellish the decisions behind the release date rearrangements, although studios often adjust their schedules for different reasons. The movers arrive as a writer’s strike cripples the film and television industry, which causes production shutdowns that could affect release timelines.

James Cameron’s third “Avatar” movie was moved from 2024 to December 2025, with the fourth film following in 2029.

The release calendar of the firm indicates the fifth installment in the franchise is now slated for 2031.

“Avatar,” released in 2009, and “Avatar: The Way of Water,” released in the previous year, are two of the three most elevated gross profit films all over the world.

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the recently renamed “Captain America: Brave New World” will be postponed from May to July in the upcoming year, with “Thunderbolts” moving to December 2024, “Blade” moving to February 2025, and “Fantastic Four” now slated for May 2025.

The changes also involve the two upcoming Avengers movies in the MCU. “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty” has been pushed back a year to May 2026. “Avengers: Secret Wars” will not be released until May 2027.

Actor Jonathan Majors, who was Kang in Marvel’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” was charged with assault and reportedly faced more accusations of abuse in the previous year.

Previous reports stated that he refused the allegations through his attorneys, but his longtime management group dropped him. Marvel has remained silent on Majors’ case.

After the box office blow of the actor’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” Disney CEO Bob Iger pondered whether Marvel should prioritize fresher characters instead of continuing to create third and fourth films for established legacy characters.

Disney also delayed a planned “Star Wars” movie from December 2025 to May 2026.

It added another Star Wars movie to the schedule, and it’s set for December 2026. Disney has not released a Star Wars film since “The Rise of Skywalker” in 2019.
