Following the news that no less than six Marvel Cinematic Universe films would be delayed in 2022 and 2023 — and two untitled projects will be removed from its slate altogether — fans everywhere are understandably upset with Marvel executive Kevin Feige.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness proved a particular point of contention for many, with it being delayed from March 2022 to May 6th, 2022. In addition, Thor: Love and Thunder was delayed from that May 6th, 2022 to July 8th, 2022; Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was delayed from July 8th, 2022 to November 11, 2022; The Marvels has been delayed from 2022 altogether and will now release on February 17th, 2023; and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has been delayed to July 28th, 2023.
In addition, two untitled Marvel movies previously slated to be released in 2023 have been pulled from the calendar.
While many fans are arguably upset at the delays, it’s safe to say some a roasting Feige in more of a light-hearted capacity, poking fun not only at postponements but Marvel’s notorious protectiveness over keeping scripts secrets and speculation that the recently released The Batman trailer perhaps has him worried about the competition to come.
It was always meant to be.
Marvel scripts are a matter of national security.
I think he likes chaos.
I need something to punch.
Wanda will rise again.
We need a dark gritty MCU reboot, stat!
There’s such a thing as too much CGI, Kev.
We just wanna talk.
What do you think about all the Marvel delays?
