As the Hollywood actors’ and writers’ strike ended, major companies began restructuring their release calendars to accommodate the more than 100-day hiatus that hit multiple productions. Marvel is one of these companies, which has announced Multiple delays for tape MCUSo sure Deadpool 3 Its release date will be removedThe wait won’t be that long though.
According to reports from Last date y The Hollywood Reporter, Deadpool 3 Only three months late. Instead of hitting theaters on May 3 next year as planned, Available now on July 26, 2024. However, it seems that the delay was not so great as the fact that Ryan Reynolds continued to work on the film.
Although the strike prevented him from working as an actor and writer deadpool 3, It is mentioned in the report Reynolds and his team took advantage of the strike to begin editing some of the material they had already recorded. Similarly, it is mentioned that they have already started applying the visual effects of some scenes. Along with this, it is noted that Disney kept the recording sets intact and paid a group of people to keep track and thus get back to work as soon as possible.
however, Deadpool 3 It wasn’t the only film that suffered some delays. Captain America: Brave New Worldwhich was scheduled to be completed on July 26, 2024, has been delayed to February 14, 2025. This just doesn’t leave Deadpool 3 As the only MCU film in production for next year, it would indicate that post-production for this film is heavier than thought. Before the strike, Captain America: Brave New World It had already completed its principal filming, leaving post-production and a few details as the only essentials.
It was finally known lightning y the blade They also moved their release date. The first of these has changed from December 20, 2024 to July 25, 2025. The second was changed from February 14, 2025 to November 7 of the same year.
Let us remember that Fantastic fourAnother great production of the MCU, will be released until 2025. This means that even though we will only have one film from this cinematographic universe next year, In 2025 we will see at least four films, which may seem excessive to some fans of this film. Hope this is not the feeling of many.
After this tape, Avengers: Kang Dynasty y Avengers: Secret Wars They are planned to arrive in 2026 and 2027 respectivelyAnd after that, there is no clear plan, at least not a universal one.
The outlook for the MCU is mixed right now. Although the production as the second season loki positively received, Marvels His fate was not the same. Similarly, Many are looking forward to the like series the echo y DaredevilBut it’s not clear how these two productions are part of the narrative arc that Marvel wants to tell about the fifth and sixth phases of its universe.
As if that wasn’t enough, we also have to take into account the problems behind the camera. Reports indicate that Marvel and Disney want to remove Jonathan Major and his Kang from the MCU, This follows all the controversy surrounding him in recent years and replaces him with Doctor Doom as the main villain of this episode. However, there is no clear information at the moment, since those responsible for this production still do not know how to make this change.
On a related note, this is the first review Marvels. Likewise, the post credit scene Marvels.
These delays are for the best, or at least I want to believe. Marvel is suffering from oversaturation after the events of Endgame, and the best way to win fans back is to deliver quality product that isn’t so self-aware.
