After successfully closing Phase 3 with Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man Far From Home, in 2021, Marvel Studios has continued its Marvel Cinematic Unvierse with Phase 4 which is the beginning of a new Saga. Starting with previous movies and series that were almost all successful, in the next few years Marvel has also prepared various other interesting shows, including six MCU movies scheduled for release from this year to 2023.
In 2022, fans will certainly be treated to three sequel movies from popular MCU superheroes, such as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Then next year, various other highly anticipated movies are sure to entertain fans, including Captain Marvel 2 aka The Marvels, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and Ant-Man 3 aka Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumia .
Although the six MCU movies already have their own schedules, recently, Marvel Studios ( via Deadline ) announced that they have swapped the release schedules for Captain Marvel 2 and Ant-Man 3. With this new schedule, Captain Marvel 2 is officially has been pushed back to July 28, 2023, while Ant-Man 3 will premiere earlier than Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Captain Marvel 2, which is on February 17, 2023. On the other hand, GOTG 3 is sticking with its release schedule on May 5, 2023.
Until this news was released, Marvel Studios itself still has not explained the reason for this schedule change . Fans speculate that there are two reasons why the releases of Captain Marvel 2 and Ant-Man 3 were swapped. The first, because the movie Captain Marvel 2 requires more time for the post-production stage. And secondly, maybe because the events of the Quantum Realm in Ant-Man 3 will have little influence on the movie that will be starring by Brie Larson.
Previously, it was confirmed that Ant-Man 3 would involve Jonathan Majors as the new MCU ‘Big Bad Villain’, Kang the Conqueror. So the movie will probably have an effect on the MCU as a whole. On the other hand, Captain Marvel 2 is expected to explore more of the MCU cosmic with three female superheroes at once, namely Captain Marvel (Larson), Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), and Ms Marvel (Iman Vellani). Let’s just look forward to the action of these cool superheroes, geeks.
