2020 is a write-off. Yes we still have some big movies releasing in the latter part of the year, but with the way things have been going over in the US with the COVID-19 pandemic, unless Iím in a cinema actually watching a movie, I wonít yet believe that it will actually hit its release date. And such, all we can do is look forward to whatís coming further down the line. We did that last week when Marvel Studios revealed the dates of their Phase 5 lineup. Some of which are now changing thanks to a certain wall-crawling swinging in.
Over the long weekend past, Sony finally revealed the release date of the third Spider-Man movie that theyíre co-producing with Marvel. The still-untitled threequel starring Tom Holland will now be dropping on 5 November 2021 as opposed to its original date of 16 July 2021. The problem is that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was supposed to land in November 2021 after the recent COVID-19 shuffle, so now itís getting pushed back to 25 March 2022. The upside of that delay is that to give itself some breathing room at the box office, Marvel has actually brought forward the release date of Thor: Love and Thunder by a week to 11 February 2022.
