Disney delays ‘Deadpool’ sequel, ‘Blade’ and other films in post-strike shuffle

Reading Time: < 1 minute

LOS ANGELES, (Reuters) – Walt Disney delayed the release of Marvel movie “Blade,” a new “Deadpool” installment and several other films as Hollywood studios adjusted schedules following the end of the four-month actors’ strike.

The next “Deadpool,” which had been scheduled to reach theaters in May, will now debut in late July, Disney said in a statement. That forced the company to move its planned July release, “Captain America: Brave New World,” to February 2025.

Another Marvel superhero film, “Thunderbolts,” was pushed to July 2025, and “Blade” was postponed until November 2025.

The 118-day actors strike shut down production of scripted TV shows and movies. After a tentative labor agreement was reached on Wednesday, studios and actors are working out schedules to finish uncompleted projects.

Outside of Marvel, Disney moved the debut of “Mufasa: The Lion King” to December 2024, five months later that originally planned.
