Marvel has pushed out the entirety of its post-2021 Phase Four films including Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love & Thunder, and more. Disney announced on Monday that their MCU films starting with the Doctor Strange sequel have been delayed, with the full set of delayed movies including the fourth Thor film, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, The Marvels, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

The new set of release dates are as follows, with each film taking the release date of the film preceding it:

* Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness: May 6th, 2022 (was March 25th, 2022)
* Thor: Love and Thunder: July 8th, 2022
* Black Panther: Wakanda Forever: November 11th, 2022
* The Marvels: February 17th, 2023
* Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania: July 28th, 2023

The studio did not give a reason for these release delays. In addition, two previously-untitled Marvel films have been removed from the schedule and an untitled Marvel film has been moved up a week from November 10th, 2023 to November 3rd, 2023.

Marvel currently has Eternals set to release on November 5th, and Sony has their MCU-set Spider-Man: No Way Home set for December 17th.
