According to Deadline, Disney has just shifted its release schedule for a lot of hotly anticipated upcoming movies, including several in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Let's run it down:

  • "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" — Old release date: March 25, 2022 — New release date: May 6, 2022
  • "Thor: Love and Thunder" — Old release date: May 6, 2022 — New release date: July 8, 2022
  • "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" — Old release date: July 8, 2022 — New release date: November 11, 2022
  • "Indiana Jones 5" — Old release date: July 29, 2022 — New release date: June 30, 2023
  • "The Marvels" — Old release date: November 11, 2022 — New release date: February 17, 2023
  • "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" — Old release date: February 17, 2023 — New release date: July 28, 2023
  • Untitled Marvel movie — Old release date: November 10, 2023 — New release date: November 3, 2023

Disney also removed four movies — one Disney live-action feature, one 20th Century Fox feature and two Marvel movies — off the schedule entirely.

Why did Disney delay Marvel movies?

So Disney is reshuffling its schedule. Does this mean anything? Probably not; studios pull this kind of thing pretty frequently. Maybe one movie or another is taking longer to make than anticipated, maybe they're moving things around to avoid competition with other movies, etc. As long as you know what's playing when, you should be fine.
