As movie theaters have (mostly) reopened domestically after the initial few waves of the COVID-19 pandemic, which largely decimated box office intake in 2020 and some of 2021, studios have largely steadied the ship of their schedules that were, at one point, changing and evolving constantly with much uncertainty as to which titles would actually be able to release when they were supposed to.
Some of the biggest current franchises dealt with this issue over the past two years, including Marvel and DC. Films like The Flash, a project already delayed substantially due to creative changes, seems to only now have a final release date, albeit all the way in June of 2023. Many Marvel titles have been delayed as well, as Black Widow, Shang-Chi, and Eternals were pushed back by a year or more to debut in 2021.
Despite no wholesale changes to the MCU’s current release schedule, there continues to be subtle alterations every now again. The most recent of these changes is the swapping of release dates for two of the franchise’s 2023 titles, The Marvels and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Ant-Man 3 will now debut on February 17, 2023, while The Marvels will now release on July 28 of the same year. The films were originally held each other’s release dates before today’s swap.
There are many Marvel projects to come before these two films, including Moon Knight, which is currently airing on Disney+. The fifth episode debuted earlier this week, which The HoloFiles rated as a 10/10.
