Paramount has scheduled its next Transformers live-action feature, Marvel Studios has changed release dates for the next Doctor Strange and Thor films, and Sony has moved dates for two Spider-Man films and the next Hotel Transylvania, as we round up the latest scheduling changes in the ongoing coronavirus shuffle.
Paramount has scheduled a Transformers live-action feature for June 24, 2022, according to Deadline. The studio currently has two features in development and has not yet made a decision on which one will be released on that date. A story based on Beast Wars is written by James Vanderbilt (Murder Mystery); and a story in the Bumblebee universe is written by Joby Harold (Army of the Dead).
Marvel moved Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the second film in the series, for the second time, setting it for release on March 25, 2022, the studio announced. The first move had been to November 2021 from earlier in the year (see "Marvel Reschedules All Phase 4 MCU Films"). Thor: Love and Thunder was moved one week earlier to February 11, 2022.
Sony moved the third film in its Spider-Man: Homecoming series to November 5, 2021 from July 16, 2021; and moved the sequel to the hit animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse back to October 7, 2022 from April 8, 2022, according to Deadline. In a rare move to an earlier premiere date, Sony also moved Hotel Transylvania 4, to August 6, 2020 from December 22, 2021.
