Has Your Anticipated Movie Release Been Delayed? Check This List To Find Out!

You may have to wait an extra year for that movie you’re looking forward to!




Productions are often delayed for various reasons and usually, production teams will anticipate these possibilities and allocate enough time before announcing the confirmed release dates for their projects. However, COVID-19 was one setback that no one anticipated and thus, we will not get to see a majority of the big-budget and heavily promoted films we’re waiting for for a little longer. Which films can we only expect to see as late as in 2022? Read on to find out.



Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic science-fiction novel starring  Timothée Chalamet-led has had its release date moved from Dec. 18, 2020, to Oct. 1, 2021.


Wonder Woman 1984

Wonder Woman was originally scheduled for release on June 5 this year but was then pushed back to Aug. 14. Now, it is slated for premiere on the 25th of December. Fingers crossed it drops then!



Black Widow

Black Widow will now open on May 7th, 2021 — almost a year after it’s rescheduled November 6th release date.  It was originally scheduled for a May 1st release, before the Covid-19 pandemic put a stop to all productions. Now the film will premiere more than a year after its original date.



Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

And with Black Widow’s rescheduling comes a new release date for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings starring Simu Liu. Shang-Chi was first scheduled for February 12, then moved to May 7; it will now premiere on July 9.

The fourth instalment of the Thor franchise will reach the big screen on Feb. 11, 2022, rather than Nov. 5, 2021. In the meantime, stars from the upcoming movie have been dropping hints and revealing juicy new information from the upcoming movie. Natalie Portman (who played scientist Foster in the first two movies) ha confirmed that the film will be based on the Mighty Thor storyline and will show Jane battling cancer.


Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

The second instalment of the Doctor Strange series has been pushed back from Nov. 5, 2021 to March 25, 2022. However, Marvel has just confirmed that we’ll also be seeing the enigmatic doctor in Spiderman 3. So, two for the price of waiting for one? We’ll take it.

The sequel to the Tom Hardy-led film has been moved from Oct. 2, 2020, to June 25, 2021.




With Freddie Mercury, Elton John (and soon, even Madonna) immortalised in biopics depicting their life stories, it’s only fitting (if not overdue) that The King gets his own screentime. The biopic on Elvis Presley, however, has been pushed back from its slated release date of Oct. 1, 2021, and instead, will now premiere a month later, on Nov. 5, 2021.

Director and writer John Krasinski announced the film’s delay on Instagram, explaining that his ultimate wish would be for the world to experience the movie together, so it’s been pulled from release. A Quiet Place Part II was set to roll out in the US on March 20, but will now premiere on April 23, 2021.



Do we really need ANOTHER Cinderella reboot? When it stars Camila Cabello, Billy Porter and Idina Menzel alongside Pierce Brosnan, Missy Elliott, Minnie Driver, James Corden, John Mulaney, and Romesh Ranganathan – then yes, yes we do. The live-action reboot from Sony created a buzz with it’s casting choices but may now only showcase its glory after February 5, 2021.

Bob’s Burgers: The Movie

Fans rejoiced when what is regarded as one of the greatest animated series on the air was said to be moving to the big screen. However, it looks like fans of the Emmy award-winning series will have to wait longer for the movie. At Comic-Con, creator Loren Bouchard confirmed –


“Yeah, it’s absolutely coming out. I mean…it’ll come out. It’s gotta come out. We have to stop working on it at some point!”

At this time, Bob’s Burger: The Movie is eyeing a release date of April 9, 2021.

James Cameron has confirmed that filming is “100% complete on Avatar 2, and we’re sort of 95% complete on Avatar 3” but it will still be years til we see Avatar 2. The huge project started way back in 2017 (although James Cameron had started planning the sequel before the first movie was even released) with production focused on the motion capture segments for both ‘Avatar 2’ and ‘Avatar 3’. This then went on until 2019, when live-action filming commenced but was soon put to a halt because of the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time, the crew had been filming in New Zealand but had to shut down production and remain in Los Angeles until given the green light to go back which wasn’t until June this year. James Cameron revealed new release dates for all four of the previously announced Avatar sequels: Avatar 2 has been pushed back to December 2022, Avatar 3 to December 2024, Avatar 4 to December 2026, and Avatar 5 to December 2028.



Raya and the Last Dragon

The release of the highly anticipated animated movie set in Southeast Asia and written by Malaysian-born, United States-based screenwriter Adele Lim, has been pushed back to March 2021, instead of Nov. 25, 2020.
