As a result, numerous fan-favorite projects are experiencing significant delays in their production timelines.

Sony Pictures’ Kraven the Hunter, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, is a prime example, as it has been pushed back almost a year to August 20, 2024. Another highly anticipated film, Beyond the Spider-Verse, is facing an indefinite delay, with its new release date yet to be determined until the strikes come to an end.
