Marvel Studios has a pretty long list of upcoming projects. Projects whose developments were put under question due to the SAG-AFTRA strike that has paralyzed the development of new projects all across Holywood. And even though writers have reached an agreement, the current status of the actors is still under question, and no agreement was reached.
Now, due to these upcoming developments, it looks like ‘Captain America: Brave New World’ and ‘Deadpool 3’ will switch release dates, ‘Brave New World’ coming on May 3, 2024, and ‘Deadpool 3’ likely releasing sometimes in November or December of 2024.
‘Deadpool 3’ started shooting in May 2023, and even though Shawn Levy reassured fans that the movie won’t be as affected by the strikes, it seems that some additional work will have to be done on the movie.
This is nothing shocking and unexpected considering the entertainment industry’s current state, and Marvel Studios seems to have hit a rough patch in the last several months. Just a reminder that ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ was considered a big flop by the general audience and in terms of box office. Recently, it was announced that ‘Daredevil: Born Again’ is set to be overhauled due to the original premise “being boring.” ‘Wonder Man,’ a project focusing on Yahya Abdul-Mateen’s Simon Williams, is also rumored to face the chopping block.
‘The Marvels’ is set to be released in exactly one month, and the projected box office is abysmal compared to the movie being one of the most expensive that Marvel Studios ever developed. It’s clear that amidst the actor strike, Marvel Studios is facing a crisis on its own and needs a change of direction.
