‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ is said to be one of its most important films that will decide the fate of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After Chadwick Boseman’s tragic death, Marvel fans have had doubts about who will replace their much beloved character of ‘Black Panther’. Honestly, recasting for the same character is a pretty tricky task based upon Chadwick Boseman’s popularity amongst the fans.
But now that the new cast is out and the film is set to release on November 11, we feel that this is one MCU film that has a potential to make or break the MCU. Amongst the multiple reasons, one major reason being the decreasing popularity (with films like Thor Love and Thunder not matching the critics expectations) and the complicated storyline that the MCU is coming up with.
While we’ll have to wait and watch what ‘Wakanda’ will bring to the table for his fans, there’s one sad news for all the Marvel Cinematic Universe fans! Looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer for the release of our favourite MCU films. Disney has overhauled its schedule by delaying some major projects like ‘Blade’, ‘Deadpool 3’ and ‘Fantastic Four’ amongst others.
Initially the film ‘Blade’, that was supposed to release on November 3 has now been rescheduled for 6th of November 2024. According to the recent news, after director Bassam Tariq’s exit from ‘Blade’, it has left the yearlong postponement project without a director.
This shift in release date of ‘Blade’ has created a ripple on the rest of the MCU films due to their interconnected storylines and has reverberated on the rest of the films in development.
The Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman starrer ‘Deadpool 3’ has been postponed from September 6, 2024 to November 8, 2024 which will mark actor Hugh Jackman’s return as Wolverine.
Another MCU franchise film, ‘Fantastic Four’ will now release in February 2025 instead of November 2024, and the much-anticipated film ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’ has now been pushed to release on May 1, 2026.
