It seems like just yesterday that industry sources confirmed that script problems would probably keep Spider-Man 4 from hitting the announced 2011 release date. Oh wait, it was just yesterday… Box Office Mojo is now reporting that Marvel’s Thor has moved from the planned May 20th 2011 date to Spider-Man 4‘s May 5th 2011 slot. This gives Thor the big tentpole date of the summer. And while Spidey is still listed for the same date, we’re sure that will be officially changed real soon.
And with an opening in Thor’s old date, Disney has decided to move Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides into the May 20th 2011 release date. The film had previously been stuck with a Summer 2011 TBA slot.
