This new development of the fanbase was on full show when Deadline announced that Disney was changing the 2022 movie release calendar and pushing back almost every MCU movie one slot. Everyone was taken aback by the news.
The major question on everyone’s mind as the internet tried to rationalize shifting so many projects on a timeline that looked to be locked in following the MCU’s return to theaters was “why?”
Well, all things Marvel, Mr Kevin Feige, was asked that very question. And this is what he had to say:
“It’s production shifts and changes, and because we have so many slots, we can just shift slots. So all of the Marvel movie slots are the same, we are just shifting which movies are coming out.”
And he even addresses the delay of Doctor Strange 2 that just was announced today:
“Strange has moved six weeks, so instead of being three months between Marvel movies, there will be five months. And I think we can all handle that.”
