Walt Disney Co’s Marvel Studios on Tuesday declared February release dates for “Black Panther” and “Ant-Man” sequels in China, marking the 1st time in almost four several years that the Communist place has permitted Marvel videos into its cinemas.
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” will arrive in Chinese theaters on Feb. 7 adopted by “Ant-Person and the Wasp: Quantumania” on Feb. 17, Marvel announced on Chinese social media network Weibo.
