Disney’s The Lone Ranger was originally set for release on December 21, 2012, but extended negotiations over the budget delayed the start of production.  Now those negotiations have been settled, a lower budget has been agreed upon, and THR reports that Disney has now set the release date for May 31, 2013.  Gore Verbinski is still attached to direct, Jerry Bruckheimer will produce, and Johnny Depp will star as Tonto with Armie Hammer set as the eponymous ranger.

However, this new tentpole date has shifted around Disney’s other films.  Thor 2 was originally set for July 26, 2013, but will now try to own the Thanksgiving holiday weekend with a November 15, 2013 release.  Keep in mind that Disney-Marvel already has one superhero movie set for the summer with Iron Man 3 due out on May 3, 2013. Phineas and Ferb, the feature-film adaptation of the popular children’s show, has taken Thor 2‘s July 26th date.
