Yesterday, there were more feature film delays announced by studios with The King’s Man, a prequel set in the Kingsman franchise, has been bumped to August 20th from March 12th. The action film directed by Matthew Vaughn is expected to be part of wave of sequels and spinoffs as Disney seemingly has plans double-down on the mature action franchise.
THE KING’S MAN – As a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man must race against time to stop them. Discover the origins of the very first independent intelligence agency in The King’s Man.
Disney/20th Century Studios also announced that their animated flick Bob’s Burgers has been pulled from the schedule entirely after being etched-in for a release of April 9th and hasn’t been given a new spot. It’s possible that Disney is busy trying to determine where they want to place it with more switch-ups on the way.
This is expected to be the first of many Disney projects that they’ll moving around as their 2021 and 2022 slate is obviously going to be altered as other studios move their feature films out of the spring and summer. Black Widow and Shang-Chi are key Disney blockbusters that are likely going to get new dates.
