Changes have happened in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 4 lineup as major movies sway release dates in a surprise development recently. The MCU has never been more exciting, ready to change the universe, or shall we say multiverse, forever. Phase 4 has a packed lineup featuring sequels to solo franchises, as a new age for Marvel Studios begins.
Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has been a point of intrigue ever since its announcement. Mainly due to more exploration of the Quantum Realm and the promise of featuring the next big bad in Marvel – Kang the Conqueror. The Marvels has also been talked about a lot recently after the introduction of Monica Rambeau’s superpowers. The upcoming Ms Marvel series on Disney+ will introduce Kamala Khan, who of course is known as Ms. Marvel. Khan will also appear in The Marvels.
Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania And The Marvels Swap Release Dates
Variety recently reported that there has been a swap in release dates for these two films. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will now release on February 17, 2023 and The Marvels will release on July 28, 2023. No rationale was given for the adjustment.
This decision doesn’t come as a surprise. Ant-Man 3 had progressed further in filming and production than The Marvels. Another possible reason is that Marvel Studios wanted The Marvels to release once Secret Invasion had completed its Disney+ run. This is good news for the Kang fans as audience will get to see him in all his glory a few months in advance and can even expect a first look via a trailer by the end of the year.
