Marvel Studios made significant changes to their release schedule after pre-production on the Blade film starring Mahershala Ali was halted.
The Hollywood Reporter previously reported on October 11 that Marvel Studios is stopping production on the Blade after a two-week break with director Bassam Tariq. Tariq, on the other hand, is still a project executive producer.
According to the publication, Marvel is temporarily suspending production-related activities in Atlanta, where the project was set to begin filming in November, while it searches for a director and further develops the feature.
Ryan Reynolds’ yet-to-be-titled Deadpool 3 has been pushed back from September 6, 2024 to November 8, 2024.
The highly anticipated Fantastic Four film has been pushed back to February 14, 2025, four months after its planned November 8, 2024 release date, and will now take the place of Deadpool 3. The film’s director, WandaVision director Matt Shakman, was disclosed at the D23 expo, but further details about the project are being kept under wraps.
The release date of Avengers: Secret Wars has been pushed back from November 7, 2025 to May 1, 2026.
The Kang Dynasty will be released on May 2, 2025, as previously planned. Jonathan Majors’ portrayal of Kang the Conqueror, who made his acting debut in the Loki series as He Who Remains, will be the main character of the plot. In the forthcoming Antman and The Wasp: Quantumania film, starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, he will be introduced as a new Kang, and the story will continue in Kang Dynasty.
The Kang Dynasty will be released on May 2, 2025, as previously planned. Secret Wars, a similar crossover event, is presently looking for a qualified director to oversee what is sure to be a fan favourite. Instead of the originally planned six-month gap between the two projects, this provides a year-long break for both.
