Disney has pushed Thor: Love and Thunder several months and has revealed a date for Patty Jenkins’ Rogue Squadron alongside other highly anticipated releases.
As the internet slowly recovers from all the incredible news revealed at the Disney Investor presentation, it’s time to start looking to the future. The company announced a collection of new release dates for some of the most anticipated blockbusters like Thor: Love and Thunder, Rogue Squadron, Black Panther 2, Free Guy and The King’s Man. First up, the Thor sequel from Taika Waititi has been pushed forward from Februrary 2, 2022 up to May 6, 2022 – but it sounds like it will be worth the wait since Christian Bale will play Gorr the God Butcher in the film.
Another Marvel delay comes from Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther 2, which has moved to a summer release of July 8, 2022. Although most fans are excited to see Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 1984 when it arrives on HBO Max this month, the director’s Star Wars film, Rogue Squadron, is still a long time away. Disney confirmed it will arrive in theaters on December 22, 2023. The studio has also delayed Free Guy, which now arrives on May 21, 2021, with The King’s Man also shifting to March 12, 2021. It’s disappointing news, but given the current global situation, it makes sense that Disney wants to give its biggest releases a little breathing room.

Full details on the plot for Thor: Love and Thunder are currently under wraps, though the film will be partly based on Jason Aaron’s Mighty Thor comic book run, with Jane Foster becoming the new Thor. Directed by Taika Waititi from a script he co-wrote with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, Love and Thunder also stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Tessa Thompson.
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to be released on May 6, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on Love and Thunder, Black Panther 2, Rogue Squadron, The King’s Man and Free Guy, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
