Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ Pushed Back 4 Months to 2022
Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” will now be released on March 25, 2022 instead of November 5, 2021, thanks to a move by Disney on Friday.
The release date of “Thor: Love and Thunder” is also shifted from February 18 to February 11 in 2022. Originally scheduled for May 1, Scarlett Johansson’s Marvel film “Black Widow” has been rescheduled for November 6, replacing the Angelina Jolie-starring “The Eternals” in that time slot. With “The Eternals” moving to February 12, 2021, and “Shang-Chi” moving to May 7, 2021, this causes a significant change in impending MCU titles. The release dates for “Black Panther 2” and “Captain Marvel 2” have been changed to May 6 and July 8, respectively.
Production on the “Doctor Strange” sequel is expected to begin in May. The sequel to “Doctor Strange” will be “the first scary MCU film,” according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who made the announcement at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con Marvel presentation. It’s going to be PG-13, and you’re going to like it, Feige jokingly remarked. The most recent version of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” was written by upcoming screenwriter Jade Bartlett for Marvel Studios. Sam Raimi, who directed “Spider-Man,” will be directing a superhero film once more.
As the film business adjusts to the permanent closing of movie theaters throughout the world to stop the spread of the coronavirus, other Hollywood companies have been making comparable, extensive alterations to their tentpole release strategy. Major motion pictures scheduled for release in April and May, such as “F9” and “No Time to Die,” were pulled left and right as the virus swept over the world. In the United States, June blockbusters like “Wonder Woman 1984” quickly followed the wave of theater lockdowns.
The studio’s decision to transfer their biggest films of the year from the summer demonstrates how studios may be cautious to immediately resume releasing high-budget blockbusters into theaters, even if a doomsday scenario for movie theaters is avoided and they are able to reopen by July.
TheWrap was informed by some analysts and executives that there is a chance that moviegoers may be reluctant to immediately return to public gatherings unless it is certain that the virus is no longer a threat to public health. This is in addition to the fact that studios will want assurance that they will be able to hold a full marketing campaign.
