“The Marvels” & “Ant-Man 3” swap release dates in 2023

On Friday, Disney has issued a statement saying that Marvel Studios’ “The Marvels” as well as “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” have swapped release dates. In the matter of the fact, “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” a third movie of “Ant-Man” series, had been set to release on July 28, 2023, while “The Marvels,” a sequel to 2019’s “Captain Marvel” were scheduled to open on February 17, 2023.

Nonetheless, according to Disney’s Friday’s announcement, the “Ant-Man” sequel will be released before the “Captain American” sequel on February, while “The Marvels” will make its debut in big screens on July next year.

Apart from that, according to sources familiar with the issue as reported by a press agency late on Saturday, there might be a production delay in “The Marvels,” while the Ant-Man sequel had already winded up its principal photography.

Nevertheless, contemplating Marvel Studios’ other big-budget releases in 2023 such as the “Guardian of the Galaxy: Vol 3” which is set to release on May 5, 2023, a delay in production of “The Marvels” could be justified, while if truth is to be spoken, Captain America’s cinematic universe never had generated mass-scale grossing outside the domestic box office.

In tandem, “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” would more likely to continue the storyline of a 2021 Disney+ series “Loki” featuring Jonathan Majors, as Majors has reportedly been casted as the key negative character in “Quantumania” as Kang the Conqueror, a different variant of “Loki”.

The “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” will witness a return of a number of high-profile actors including Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michelle Pfeiffer alongside Michelle Douglas and the director Peyton Reed.
