Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is well and truly underway.

Before the year is out, fans of the franchise will get not one but two superhero outings in 'Marvel's Eternals' and 'Spider-Man: No Way Home'.

Disney has announced a number of shifts for the release of MCU movies between 2022 and 2023.

A number of the projects have been delayed - but not by more than a few months for the most part.

The 'Doctor Strange' sequel has moved from a March to May release for next year, thus kicking off the blockbuster season.

'Thor: Love and Thunder, meanwhile, will now hit cinemas mid-summer in July rather than May 6th.

'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' will now arrive in cinemas in November rather than July, as the 'Thor' sequel takes its spot.

Meanwhile, 'The Marvels' has been postponed to early 2023 and the 'Ant-Man and the Wasp' follow-up has scooted from a February 2023 release to July.

President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige says the reasons for the changes aren't all that dramatic.

He explains: "It's production shifts and changes, and because we have so many slots, we can just shift slots.

"So all the Marvel slots are the same, we're just shifting the movies coming out.

"'Strange' has moved six weeks, so instead of there being three months between Marvel movies, there'll be five months between Marvel movies, and I think that we can all handle that."

The new release dates now stand as:

'Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness'
May 6, 2022

'Thor: Love and Thunder'
July 8, 2022

'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever'
November 11, 2022

'The Marvels'
February 17, 2023

'Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania'
July 28, 2023

The only MCU release sticking to its original date is 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3', which is currently set to kick off summer 2023 on May 5.

As well as the Marvel delays, Disney has moved the fifth 'Indiana Jones' installment back nearly a year.

The Harrison Ford starrer will now open on June 30, 2023 instead of July 29, 2022.
