Disney did some release date housekeeping on Monday, pushing three high-profile Marvel sequels – Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Indiana Jones 5.

The trio of Marvel movies were each pushed a few months later into 2022, while Indiana Jones was moved to 2023, according to Variety.

The studio also pushed The Marvels and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantummania into 2023, while a number of untitled projects/placeholders were removed from the release schedule.

Disney sources claimed that the widespread release date shift is to give the filmmakers more time for production, and not tied to pandemic box office returns. 

The news comes as Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings became a pandemic-era hit with $217.8 million domestic and $414 million worldwide.

While those are strong numbers since COVID-19 changed the worldwide cinematic landscape, the domestic and worldwide numbers are both in the lower echelon of the MCU franchise overall.

Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness was pushed from March 25, 2022 to May 6, 2022, where it will face Focus Features’ Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris.

Thor: Love and Thunder was shifted from May 6, 2022 to July 8, 2022, where it opens by itself but a week before the animated sequel Minions: The Rise of Gru.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was pushed from July 8, 2021 to November 11, 2022, where it’s the only movie in theaters, though a week after Warner Bros.’ The Flash.

Phoebe (McKenna Grace) asks her mother Callie (Carrie Coon) what kind of scientist her grandfather was, but Callie reveals, ‘Honestly I have no idea.’

The man from before is seen running into the house, holding up the blinking ghost trap as he removes the ghost and hides the trap beneath the floor… where it’s found by Phoebe, seemingly many years later.

Phoebe’s brother Trevor (Finn Wolfhard) is seen snooping around the barn, where he finds the original Ecto-1 vehicle.

Phoebe takes the trap into school where it’s examined by Mr. Grooberson (Paul Rudd), who says, ‘This thing is real?’

It seems that, over the years, the Ghostbusters may have morphed from an actual organization to merely an urban legend.

Grooberson explains that this town they live in, ‘which has no fault lines, is shaking on a daily basis.’

Trevor, meanwhile, finds a large mine of sorts and asks, ‘What is that?’ when a red spiritual beam flies out of it.

‘This isn’t a mine. It’s a gateway,’ Phoebe says, as Grooberson is at the grocery store and sees tiny Stay-Puft marshmallows come to life as miniature Marshmallow Men.

Thankfully, they are nowhere near the size of the massive Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man from the original movie, though plenty more spirits start infiltrating the town.
