Marvel Trailer Updates: ‘Avengers’ Delayed to Friday, ‘Spider-Man’ on Saturday

Last weekend, the death of President George Herbert Walker Bush occurred, leading to a funeral on Wednesday. As such, the trailer for Avengers: Annihilation will arrive on Friday instead of that date as initially planned. Meanwhile, Spider-Man: Far From Home will have its first preview revealed on Saturday.


Insider DanielRPK previously indicated that this week was going to be big for Marvel, and that tease is already paying off with Monday’s debut of the second trailer for Captain Marvel. Still to come are the new trailers for Avengers: Annihilation and Spider-Man: Far From Home as Marvel prepare to wrap up Phase 3 and usher in Phase 4. (Oh, and the debut of the trailer for the Avengers video game from Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics thrown in there for good measure.)


However, this Wednesday’s funeral procession for George Bush Senior has been declared a National Day of Mourning. As such, Marvel have adjusted their plans and have moved the trailer’s arrival date back a bit:


While Disney want to pay respects to the passing of President Bush, there’s also an economic incentive to not release the trailer as well. With the stock market closed on Wednesday, there’s not an opportunity for Disney shares to get a financial boost out of hype for the trailer, and generally speaking, all eyes will be focused on the funeral procession instead of any major entertainment news. They can afford to wait for a few days and still have time for the trailer to be attached to all of December’s major movies. For now, a slightly longer wait is something that’s well worth giving the Bush family and America time to grieve.



Conversely, there’s also news of a trailer that’s been pushed forward. The first Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer was previously looking to arrive next week, according to DanielRPK:



The trailer is set to be attached to screenings of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, so it was expected to hit fairly early into next week. However, in an effort to capitalize on Marvel’s massive week, Sony have pushed it up to Saturday instead:



The Saturday date also coincides with Brazil’s Comic Con Experience, where Spider-Man: Far From Home has a presentation on that day. MCU Cosmic adds a bit to this story by stating that there are rumors that there will be some kind of trailer announcement on Thursday, which would make sense if there’s also an official announcement for the Avengers: Annihilation trailer around the same time. In any case, Marvel’s big week isn’t stopping anytime soon, and if anything, it just got bigger.


Captain Marvel will be released on March 8, 2019. Avengers: Annihilation will be released on May 3, 2019. Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released on July 5, 2019.
