Deadpool 3 Release Date Delay Might Be Good News For A Different Marvel Movie


  • Marvel fans will have to wait longer for Deadpool 3 as its release date is delayed due to the ongoing actors’ strike.
  • Captain America: Brave New World is set to take Deadpool 3’s place on May 3, 2024, featuring Sam Wilson as the new Captain America and the return of forgotten MCU characters.
  • Marvel Studios’ recent movies have not been as successful, and the lack of an overarching plot may affect the reception of Captain America: Brave New World.

With the Deadpool 3 release date now delayed, Marvel Studios appears to have bumped up another future installment to take Deadpool 3‘s spot – Captain America: Brave New World.

Thanks to the actors’ strike, Deadpool 3 had to be paused until everything had been sorted out. Though the actors’ strike could be resolved in a matter of weeks, the film still has more work to do before it’s completed, meaning a delay would be inevitable.

Deadline detailed why Deadpool 3 is not expected to make its May 3 release date. “In one of the first major blows to the 2024 theatrical release schedule due to the ongoing actors strike, sources tell us that Marvel Studios‘ Deadpool 3 won’t be making its May 3 start-of-summer theatrical release date. Even if the strike ends in the next few weeks, a 2024 restart on the half-finished Deadpool 3 would not get the Ryan Reynolds-Hugh Jackman threequel to a May opening date.” The outlet’s sources say there is a “long shot” for Captain America 4 to take back the May 3 date because it has finished filming. The X account CanWeGetSomeToast revealed via its X account that Captain America: Brave New World is set to take Deadpool 3‘s place. “According to a newly discovered Disney Media Kit, ‘CAPTAIN AMERICA: BRAVE NEW WORLD’ is set to release on May 3, 2024. The date was previously held by ‘DEADPOOL 3’, which has yet to be given a new release date.

With Deadpool 3 delayed until further notice, Marvel fans can now look forward to the next installment of Captain America. As fans know, this installment will feature Sam Wilson as the new Captain America. Also, previously forgotten MCU characters will return, including Tim Blake Nelson as The Leader and Liv Tyler as Betty Ross. Those two made their first appearance in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. Following the passing of William Hurt, Harrison Ford will take Hurt’s role as Captain Thunderbolt Ross.

Not many details have been released regarding Captain America 4‘s plot. However, since Isaiah Bradley will return after appearing in Falcon and the Winter Soldier, this will likely combine elements from that Marvel Studios series and The Incredible Hulk, even if it will have been over a decade and a half since that film’s release. Among the details released are that Sam and the other protagonists will encounter the Serpent Society, which will surely get their hands tied.

While it’s an interesting play by Marvel Studios to revisit characters that were among the first ever introduced in the cinematic universe, that may not be enough to entice fans to watch this next installment. Marvel Studios has not had the same returns it once did, partly because there doesn’t seem to be an overarching plot behind the movies they’ve done. Maybe replacing Kevin Feige could get them back on track, or perhaps taking a year off or two to regroup could help get their heads on their shoulders again. But no matter what they do, Captain America: Brave New World probably won’t entice fans like the previous Captain America-led films did.

Deadpool 3 has no designated release date. Captain America: Brave New World may premiere in theaters on May 3, 2024.
