Marvel has now moved the release dates for multiple MCU movies, and Disney has delayed Mufasa: The Lion King sequel, to December 20, 2024.
With a deal reached between SAG-AFTRA and the AMPTP; that’s worth over one billion dollars, the actors strike is finally over.
However, it’s already taken too long for the AMPTP to bring an appropriate deal to the table; which has resulted in multiple delays to content, for the next five years.
Which movies are delayed?
2024 Disney and Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios movie release dates
Deadpool 3 starring Ryan Reynolds and the return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, is delayed to the Summer instead, on May 3, 2024. This is currently the only Disney/Marvel film to release in 2024.
Apart from Marvel films from other studios such as Sony Pictures’ Venom 3 starring Tom Hardy, which has also been delayed to November 8, 2024.

According to John Rocha; from the entertainment podcast (The Hot Mic); Captain America 4 is getting negative scores at test screenings, and this has reportedly lead to 3 major sequences cut, and more reshoots to follow.

Could there still be further delays to the next big Avengers movies?
Earlier this year, in June; both Avengers: Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars were already pushed to May 1, 2026 and May 7, 2027. Hopefully, the releases are not extended beyond that.
