LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hollywood studios are shuffling more release dates as a result of the coronavirus, including sequels to "Doctor Strange," "Spider-Man: Far From Home" and "Into the Spider-Verse."

Late Friday, both Sony Pictures and The Walt Disney Co. announced updated theatrical release schedules that significantly delay some of their marquee superhero films.

"Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" will now open in 2022.

"Thor: Love and Thunder," is being pushed up a week to Feb. 11, 2022.

Sony's live-action Spider-Man has been pushed back to November 2021.

And the animated "Spider-Verse" sequel is now dated for October 2022, back from its original April 2022 release.
