X-Men: Dark Phoenix (June 7, 2019)

Post by WyldeMan on 4/22/2017, 4:12 pm


In addition to release dates for Deadpool 2 and New Mutants, 20th Century Fox today also announced a third X-Men movie for release in 2018: X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Yes indeed folks, the Dark Phoenix storyline will be tackled once again in what appears to be the next film in the main X-Men franchise following last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will open in theaters on November 2, 2018, which follows the April release of New Mutants and June release of Deadpool 2, capping off a banner superhero year for the studio. On that November date, the film will be squaring off directly against Disney’s live-action Mulan and opens one week after Warner Bros.’ motion-capture Jungle Book: Origins and Sony’s reboot The Girl in the Spider’s Web.

But the release date is pretty much all we officially know about X-Men: Dark Phoenix. We exclusively broke the news recently that Simon Kinberg, the writer/producer of X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse as well as the producer of Deadpool and X-Men: First Class, was being eyed to direct the next main X-Men movie. Fox hasn’t yet confirmed if Kinberg will indeed be directing X-Men: Dark Phoenix (he’s certainly writing it), but if the studio is ready to announce a release date they must be close to landing the film’s director.

Kinberg has been itching to tell the Dark Phoenix story for some time now. He was a co-writer on X-Men: The Last Stand, which told a version of the Dark Phoenix comics arc but which Kinberg admits missed the mark. Now, with Sophie Turner being introduced as the new Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse, it appears Kinberg and Co. are ready to hopefully nail this popular comics storyline.

The involvement of Bryan Singer in this film is unclear. He returned to the X-Men franchise to helm the swell X-Men: Days of Future Past and also directed the underwhelming X-Men: Apocalypse, but Fox just dated the Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody for release in December 2018 with Singer directing, so he most certainly won’t be helming X-Men: Dark Phoenix but he’ll likely remain involved as a producer.

As for when Dark Phoenix might start filming, it’ll have to get underway this summer if Turner is involved. She’ll be due back to shoot the final season of Game of Thrones this August or September, so again, I imagine Fox already has the film’s director in mind.

We’ll certainly share more information as we get it, but right now all Fox will officially say is that X-Men: Dark Phoenix is hitting theaters on November 2, 2018. And with Deadpool 2 and New Mutants also set for release next year, the studio appears to be making a pretty big superhero statement in 2018. Coming off the smashing success of the R-rated Logan, it’ll be curious to see how the studio continues to branch out in the superhero genre.

I wish they would just make a deal with Disney the same way Sony did with Spider-Man.

Simon Kinberg Set to Direct ‘Dark Phoenix;’ Jessica Chastain in Talks For Villain Role

Producer Simon Kinberg is set to direct “X-Men: Dark Phoenix.”

Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, and Kodi Smit-McPhee are all reprising their roles when production begins in Montreal.

Newcomer  Jessica Chastain is in talk to join the cast in a new role as a villain.

The film will focus on Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey as it features the iconic story of the Dark Phoenix saga from the X-Men comics. The Phoenix, in the form of Jean, appeared as the primary antagonist of “X-Men: The Last Stand.”  She was portrayed by actress Famke Jansen in “X-Men: The Last Stand.”

Kinberg, who co-wrote “X-Men: The Last Stand” – the franchise’s first attempt at the Dark Phoenix saga — was reported several months ago to be in talks to not only write the “Apocalypse” sequel but to direct the film as well.

Production on the film is expected to take place from the end of this month until early t0 mid-October in Montreal.

Kinberg is producing with Hutch Parker and Lauren Shuler Donner. Kinberg is also a producer on “Deadpool 2,” as well “X-Men: The New Mutants.”

‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ Pushed Back to 2019, ‘The New Mutants’ Moves to Next Summer
Fans will have to wait a lot longer to see Fox’s next movies based on the X-Men franchise as the studio announced Monday that Simon Kinberg’s “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” would move from November 2, 2018 to February 14, 2019.

As a result, the horror-driven X-Men spinoff “The New Mutants” is also moving, from February 22, 2019 to August 2, 2019.

The studio also bumped “The Force,” James Mangold’s adaptation of a Don Winslow novel about a crooked NYC cop, from its release schedule altogether. It had been booked for March 1, 2019.

In addition, Fox announced that Bryan Singer’s eagerly awaited Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” would hit theaters in the midst of Oscar season, on November 2, instead of its previous Christmas Day release.

Joe Cornish’s medieval epic “The Kid Who Would Be King” moves back two weeks, from February 14, 2019 to March 1.

Fox also announced that Roxann Dawson’s faith-based drama “Breakthrough” starring “This Is Us” star Chrissy Metz will land on April 12, 2019 — one week before the animated feature “Spies in Disguise” that had previously been set for January 18, 2019.

With the move of “Dark Phoenix,” which stars “Game of Thrones” alum Sophie Turner as the telepathic mutant Jean Grey, a.k.a. Phoenix, the studio will be releasing only one “X-Men” movie this year: this summer’s R-rated “Deadpool” sequel.

“Dark Phoenix” will also star Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Michael Fassbender, Olivia Munn, James McAvoy, Tye Sheridan, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters and Alexandra Shipp.

Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaammmmmn Mutants! Razz Razz Razz Razz Razz Razz


Why ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ and ‘The New Mutants’ Were Delayed
X-Men: Dark Phoenix marks the directorial debut of franchise writer/producer Simon Kinberg and brings back the star-studded cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, plus Jessica Chastain in a key role. Kinberg’s script convinced A-list talent like Jennifer Lawrence and Michael Fassbender to return even though their contracts for the franchise ran out with Apocalypse, but with A-list talent also comes high-class scheduling issues.

Sources with knowledge of the situation tell us that Dark Phoenix had a test screening to see what was working and what wasn’t, and like most big budget films it needs some additional photography—this is standard procedure for blockbusters nowadays. But given the in-demand nature of this A-list cast, getting all the necessary cast members assembled for reshoots is no easy task. The earliest availability for everyone to return was August or September of this year, which would leave just a couple of months to complete necessary visual effects for the new scenes. That wasn’t enough time, and so Fox decided to push Dark Phoenix’s release date to February to give everyone the time necessary to complete the needed additional photography and post-production on said sequences. So the release date delay for this film is basically just an issue of scheduling.

New Mutants is a different matter, however. When the film was initially delayed, it was reported that Fox wanted to do some reshoots to make the movie scarier, even going so far as to add a new character. That still holds true, and while we hear the film tested well, it’s not “scary” enough. Director Josh Boone delivered a cut of the film that he was happy with, but Fox wants this movie to stand out as tonally distinct the same way Logan and Deadpool did.

The reshoots that the studio wants are now even more significant. We’re hearing that at least 50% of the movie may be reshot, and they’re adding one or two new characters who will be present throughout the entirety of the film—this isn’t simply adding a cameo. Moreover, Boone has been having some creative differences with the studio over the requested changes to the movie, so the reasons for the New Mutants delay are more complex than why Dark Phoenix is being pushed.

Dark Phoenix & New Mutants to Be Completely Scrapped by Fox?
The production of the next two X-Men movies, Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants has looked very cloudy, with both movies being pushed back significantly in order for them to receive reshoots. Unfortunately for X-Men fans, a new report has surfaced claiming that Disney and FOX plan to completely scrap these projects as the damage may be irreparable.

While a couple of Fox's more recent Marvel movies have been rather successful and high quality, specifically the Deadpool movies, the rest of their Marvel flicks have not been met with open arms. The 2015 Fantastic Four was an utter disappointment, X-Men: Apocalypse was a huge step down from Days of Future Past, and their next two movies may be following in the same path.

The New Mutants was originally slated to release earlier this year, and even had a trailer released back in 2017. However, after Fox reportedly deemed the final cut of the movie "boring" and "unwatchable," they ordered extensive reshoots that pushed the release date until August 2019, making a nearly year and a half difference between the two release dates. According to a recent report, the issue with New Mutants came from director Josh Boone and how he adapted the movie.

According to the report, Fox initially wanted the movie to be set primarily in the X-Mansion, being based directly on the comics. It even had a final battle against a Sentinel during the third act, which feels just like an X-Men comic book. However, Josh Boone came to them with a rather different vision carrying a significantly darker tone which they decided to follow. Now, FOX is apparently upset with their decision to follow Boone's vision and are desperately attempting to reshoot accordingly.

Other issues surfaced with the production of The New Mutants as the cast has been noticeably unhappy. Actress Anya Taylor-Joy, who plays Magik, reportedly did not get along well with another cast member. Additionally, it's understandable that the rest of the cast would be uptight as the movie has been in and out of production for over a year now, which is much longer than what they initially signed on for.

While we don't have as detailed of a report on X-Men: Dark Phoenix, we can imagine that the sequel is in the same boat. According to the report, Fox is now considering just scrapping the two projects, and the Fox-Disney merger isn't helping much. Apparently, Disney is starting to become more active in the decisions at FOX and are just as displeased with the two X-Men as the rest of the Fox executives. It would seem that if Fox doesn't cut their losses on X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants, then Disney will do it for them when they take over. Disney will want to integrate the X-Men franchise into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it would be difficult to do that successfully if X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants were absolute bombs.


This report came from Superhero Hype by a user who has been deemed reliable, but it should still be taken with a grain of Thanos dust. Fox does indeed cancel the next two X-Men movies, they will essentially be tossing out hundreds of millions of dollars. Only time will tell if we'll ever get the chance to see X-Men: Dark Phoenix or The New Mutants hit theaters, but at the moment, it's not looking too likely.

The release date for Dark Phoenix has been shuffled around at 20th Century Fox for some time and it finally landed on February 14, 2019.

Wish they went with a different story instead of Phoenix, we already saw a little of this in The Last Stand as bad as it was. This will be different obviously but it's still something they've done before. Still, trailer was ok and Sophie looks good.

Maybe the franchise will get put in order when Disney takes over and mandates annual X-Men films and spin-offs for the next decade.

‘Dark Phoenix’ Bumped Back to Summer 2019; ‘Gambit’ Gets New Release Date

The X-Men franchise keeps churning at Fox (at least for the time being; that hard reboot is coming once Disney finishes its purchase), but that also means titles are inevitably pushed back. You may recall that that Dark Phoenix was originally slated for November of this year. However, it was then pushed back to February 14, 2019. Fox even released a new trailer and poster yesterday touting that release date. But now it looks like they’ll need to update they’re marketing materials as the superhero saga has been pushed back again, this time to the summer movie season. The new X-Men movie will drop on June 7, 2019.

However, only two date changes isn’t that big of deal. Meanwhile, Gambit will remain in development hell until morale improves. The spinoff movie, starring Channing Tatum as the title character, has been pushed back yet again. This time, the movie is now set to March 13, 2020. Keep in mind that the movie has cycled through directors Rupert Wyatt, Doug Liman, and Gore Verbinski and is currently being directed by [check notes] no one. Producer Simon Kinberg says that the film will be a “romantic or sex comedy”, which, fine, whatever, but let’s see if this movie ever gets made. It could be Cronenbergian body horror for all I care at this point.

And speaking of horror, the one X-Men movie that isn’t movie right now is The New Mutants, which, after a delay of over a year (it was originally set to open back in April of this year), is still on the calendar for August 2, 2019. While some may doubt that Fox would release two X-Men movies so close to each other, that strategy hasn’t really hurt Marvel (Ant-Man and the Wasp opened two months after Infinity War) and New Mutants promises to be radically different than Dark Phoenix.

LOL! Pushing back this movie twice and now as far as summer is not a good sign. They might as well hold off on Gambit for Disney and have him join the MCU with the new X-Men.
