Fantastic Beasts 3 Production Pushed Back — Though Not Likely For The Reasons You’re Thinking

We’re spoiled these days. Marvel Studios has their movie production system down pat, and it’s one that really puts every other studio out there to shame, including other big ones like Warner Bros. It was pretty much expected they’d be putting out the Fantastic Beasts films every other November until the franchise ended, but it looks like we’re getting our first indication of slowdown, courtesy of the outlet Deadline.

According to them, rather than shooting around July of this year, autumn is looking like the likely start date. So what’s the reason for this? Well, it’s fairly simple. They need more time to prep for this movie. In order to hit the July date, they will need to have already been in soft-prep at this point, and things have likely only just wound down for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

So yeah, once every couple years was already pretty darn ambitious, so that’s easy to see why this is needed. Interestingly enough, this explanation isn’t quite what I (and likely you) expected. Given the negative reception the latest movie and all the hate being slung at screenwriter J.K. Rowling, I half-expected the studio to have someone like Steve Kloves come in to help rewrite the script for the next one. As of right now, that doesn’t seem like something they’re doing — at least not based on this report.

What do you think of this delay? Should the studio be taking a closer look at those scripts from Rowling? Let us know your thoughts down below!
