A few weeks ago Marvel pulled Deadpool 3 off of the 2024 calendar, with a likely release coming the following year. But that was during the SAG-AFTRA strike when everything was getting pushed. And now that it’s over…well, it’s time to start putting the plan back into place. Deadline reports that Shawn Levy’s Deadpool sequel is back in 2024, arriving on July 26th. That date sound familiar? There’s a good reason for that.
So the July 26th 2024 date that Deadpool 3 just took was previously held by Captain America: Brave New World. That film heads to February 14th 2025, causing even more shuffling to the Marvel schedule.
Marvel’s long-suffering Blade film with Mahershala Ali was tentatively set for the February 14th date, but it has now moved to November 7th 2025. Furthermore, supervillain flick Thunderbolts sees its date changed from December 20th 2024 to July 25th 2025.
As of now, 2024 is looking pretty quiet for Marvel. The strike really screwed things up, and now only one movie is arriving next year and that’s Deadpool 3. As far as TV goes, the only locked-in series is Echo which arrives in January. Something tells me this won’t last long and projects will be moved up.
