It seems Marvel’s slate is still in flux! A new report reveals that the release dates for Thunderbolts and The Fantastic Four have shifted.

The recent Hollywood strikes caused some major disruptions for big studios, with dozens of titles being delayed up through 2026. While many thought the delays ended with the conclusion of the strike, it seems Marvel still has a few changes to their schedule. Specifically, Thunderbolts has been moved forward to debut May 2, 2025 with The Fantastic Four taking its spot on  July 25, 2025.

These new release dates shouldn’t come as a surprise to Marvel fans given Thunderbolts was already gearing up to film prior to the strike, whereas the cast of The Fantastic Four has only just been announced. Though regardless of the reasoning, it’s certain fans of the first family are bummed they still need to wait over a year to see their favorite heroes on the big screen.
