Disney delays several MCU release dates

Disney has delayed five of their upcoming announced Marvel movies. Eternals and Spider-Man: No Way Home, however, are both still committed to their respective November and December release dates.

The delays begin with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which has now moved from March to May 6, 2022. That spot was previously held for Thor: Love and Thunder, which has been bumped to July 8, 2022, taking the spot of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. That sequel is now scheduled for November 11, 2022. The Marvels has shifted out of 2022 and will now release on February 17, 2023. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quatummania is the last film receiving a delay, which is now planned for July 28, 2023.

Unlike the other post-2021 MCU films, Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3 will maintain its originally announced release in May 2023.

Updates from DC FanDome

In addition to a new trailer for The Batman, there were several other announcements for upcoming projects from DC FanDome.

Director Patty Jenkins and Lynda Carter confirmed that a third Wonder Woman movie is currently in the works, and Carter will be in the film.

The first footage from Black Adam was shown, giving the world a look at Dwayne Johnson in the titular role.

A trailer for The Flash movie leaned heavily into teasing the return of Michael Keaton’s Batman, with the former Dark Knight providing voice over while we got a look at Supergirl and multiple versions of the Flash.

The directors of the upcoming Blue Beetle film, as well as star Xolo Mariduena, spoke about the film before debuting some concept art of Blue Beetle’s costume.

Season 3 of the Harley Quinn animated series will release on HBO Max in 2022, and a sizzle reel gave a quick early look.

Finally, both Titans and Doom Patrol have been renewed for their respective fourth seasons on HBO Max.

Y: The Last Man series cancelled after one season

Y: The Last Man showrunner Eliza Clark has announced via Twitter that the series will not be getting a second season on FX on Hulu, even before the first season has finished airing. The news is a crushing blow to fans of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s original comic, many of whom waited more than 10 years for an adaptation to materialize.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources say that execs at FX had to make a decision on the series by Oct. 15th, and production costs from a showrunner change, multiple recastings that led to reshoots, and delays caused by the pandemic may have led to the cancellation decision.

Despite the early cancellation, Clark remains hopeful for the future of Y: The Last Man, as she expressed their team’s commitment to finding a new home for the series as there’s much more story left to tell.
