The topic “Captain America 4 Release Date in Jeopardy Due to Disney Update” has two versions, one is in the form of an article, and the other is in the form of a video below the article.
Recent developments from Disney’s updated theatrical release schedule suggest that the anticipated release date of Captain America 4, originally set for July 26, 2024, might be in danger of being postponed.
Marvel Studios stirred conversations by shifting its movie release lineup in June. The move included delaying Captain America: Brave New World to July 2024 while advancing Deadpool 3, starring Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, by six months to May 3, 2024.
However, an interesting omission occurred as Deadpool 3 was notably absent from Disney’s list of “upcoming theatrical releases,” casting uncertainty over Marvel’s entire 2024 slate.
Possible Implications for Captain America 4's Schedule
Currently, Deadpool 3 holds the distinction of being the next Marvel film intended for theaters post the release of The Marvels in 2023.
Throughout the Multiverse Saga, reordering of releases has been more frequent than in previous phases, though retaining the current sequence could be the intention.
Regrettably, Deadpool 3 didn’t manage to conclude filming before the onset of the actors’ strike. The unknown duration of this strike likely contributed to Disney’s decision to omit the film from the upcoming release schedule.
A plausible scenario could involve Marvel adjusting its plan to release Deadpool 3 in late July, forcing Captain America 4’s release date, with Anthony Mackie and Harrison Ford in the lead roles, to be shifted possibly to November or December.
Could 'Brave New World' Have an Earlier Release Than Deadpool 3?
On the other side of the equation, the progress of Captain America: Brave New World’s filming might be relatively advanced, potentially even completed as indicated by cinematographer Kramer Morgenthau.
Should Marvel Studios prioritize a May release over the sequential order of releases, Captain America 4’s release date could potentially be moved up. This, however, hinges on the swift resolution of the strikes. The rapid resolution would allow for necessary rewrites and reshoots to be completed before year-end, enabling efficient editing and visual effects incorporation.
On August 11, 2023, the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) initiated renegotiations that could potentially end the writers’ strike.
The culmination of both the writers’ and actors’ strikes will significantly impact Captain America 4’s release timing. Considering its apparent progress in contrast to Deadpool 3, it wouldn’t be surprising if Marvel eventually reworks the schedule.
As it stands, Captain America: Brave New World is scheduled for release on July 26, 2024.
