Marvel fans will have to wait a little longer for the highly anticipated film The Marvels starring Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris, and Iman Vellani. The film, previously scheduled for release on July 28, 2023, will now hit theaters on November 10.
Directed by Nia DaCosta from a script by Megan McDonnell, The Marvels is the highly-anticipated sequel to 2019’s Captain Marvel, which grossed over $1.1 billion worldwide.
While little is known about the plot, the film will bridge the Disney+ Marvel series “WandaVision,” featuring Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau, and “Ms. Marvel,” with Iman Vellani as the title character. The Marvels will also feature the return of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
Meanwhile, Disney’s “Haunted Mansion,” directed by Justin Simien, will now move into the July slot, from its previously announced August 11 release date. The move enables the studio to capture more kids on summer break. The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Owen Wilson, Jared Leto, Winona Ryder, Danny DeVito, Rosario Dawson, Dan Levy, LaKeith Stanfield, and Tiffany Haddish, and is inspired by the Disney theme park ride. The movie follows the story of a single mom named Gabbie, who hires a tour guide, a psychic, a priest, and a historian to help exorcise their newly bought mansion after discovering it is inhabited by ghosts.
The new release date places The Marvels in the same November slot as other successful Marvel Cinematic Universe titles such as “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” which opened last year over the Veterans Day long holiday weekend to a November record of $181.3 million.
