Jungle Cruise Movie Delayed to Fill Marvel Hole

Normally when you hear a movie is delayed you figure something has gone wrong with it. Or, if it’s Disney, you can sit on a movie for months on end because you need to fix another problem.

On Friday it was revealed that Jungle Cruise starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt was moving from Oct. 11, 2019 to July 24, 2020. A move that large is usually cause for alarm.

Then shortly after that it was revealed that a Marvel movie had been removed from the schedule that was set for July 31, 2020. While the Jungle Cruise move is for a week earlier, the fact both things happened in the same 30 minute period makes it fairly clear what is happening.

I mean, good on Disney to just have a movie laying around they can that with.
