You might be asking yourself, what about non-Marvel releases? Searchlight Pictures’ “Chevalier,” which recently had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, will arrive in theaters on April 7, 2023. The recently-announced “A Haunting in Venice,” the third movie in Kenneth Branagh’s Hercule Poirot series, is scheduled for release on September 15, 2023. Finally, the anticipated “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes” is slated to arrive on May 24, 2024.
These new dates are pretty interesting, and likely a good move on behalf of Marvel Studios. Let’s face it; there is just too much Marvel being released right now, and this has been a consistent problem for the past couple of years. Fans just have to watch too much in order to stay invested in the franchise’s overarching story. While the actual intent of these delays is unknown, it’s possible they are reducing the number of movies and television shows they release in a year, focusing more on making satisfying movies. At least, we hope that’s why all of these delays have occurred.
