Kang Dynasty’, ‘Secret Wars’ among Disney release date changes due to WGA strike

Sounds like Covid again, but it’s not. Disney just made a series of release date changes, many of them due to the impact of the WGA strike and storylines not being ready and productions halted.

We already know that Love at first sight And Blade are waiting for the strike before turning the cameras. The scripts are not fully ready regarding the new avengers movies. Avengers: Kang Dynasty runs from May 2, 2025 to May 1, 2026. Avengers: Secret Wars is also postponed by one year from May 1, 2026 to May 7, 2027.

No More Deadline

We told you that 2023 was largely safe as far as keeping it intact (knock on wood), but the ramifications of the writers’ strike and discontinued productions will be felt throughout 2024 and beyond. Begins the big reshuffling of release dates by movie studios.

Also, the other delay here with MCU titles is that Disney wants to make sure they’re better – better than what they’ve done from the script stage to the visual effects following fan pans and lower post-pandemic box office results for such films as Eternals, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder And Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

The first major change is that the untitled dead Pool film will debut next summer, on May 3, while Captain America: Brave New Worldis postponed to July 26, 2024. Love at first sight remains in 2024, leaving July 26 to December 20. Dead Pool 3in a vote of confidence, passes from November 8, 2024.

Blade runs from September 6, 2024 to February 14, 2025 – that Valentine’s Day/near Presidents Day setting that has been a sweet spot for MCU.

The Fantastic Four moves deeper into 2025, from February 14 to May 2.

Avatar 3 is officially pushed back by one year from December 20, 2024 to December 19, 2025. Which therefore pushes back other James Cameron sequels like Avatar 4 goes from December 18, 2026 to December 21, 2029, and Avatar 5 runs from December 22, 2028 to December 19, 2031. While these scripts are already locked, the change of films due to the WGA strike is pushing the Avatar sequels around. Producer Jon Landau said the following today about the moves:

THE star wars the films, which are still being cooked, are thrown on the road like cans: one of them runs from December 19, 2025 to May 22, 2026. Another untitled is added on December 18, 2026.

The new live action Moana The film starring Dwayne Johnson staked out the June 27, 2025 summer date, about a week earlier than its previous July 2 date.

New Extraterrestrial The film, which is shooting overseas, takes the Disney RSVP date of August 16, 2024.

Rami Malek’s movie The Amateur from 20th Century Studios takes the old date of Dead Pool 3that is, November 8, 2024. The photo, directed by James Hawes, follows a CIA vsryptographer who, after his wife is killed in a terrorist attack in London, asks his bosses to prosecute them. When it becomes clear that they won’t act due to conflicting internal priorities, he blackmails the agency into training him and lets him go after them himself.

Disney also responded to the following dates for untitled films: September 6, 2024; March 21, 2025 (instead of April 11, 2025); a Marvel movie for July 25, 2025; August 8, 2025 (instead of August 15 that year); and an MCU title on November 7, 2025. A Disney film scheduled for May 22, 2026 has been removed from the schedule.
