The New Mutants Maisie Williams

It’s not enough that The New Mutants got pushed back to a later date, again. But there are reports that that 50 percent of the film will have to be reshot. While reshoots are just a part of the filmmaking process, it doesn’t bode well when half of the film has to be done over again. However, there is a good reason why Fox wants these reshoots. It appears that The New Mutants is not scary enough for them. There are also reports that the film already had Jon Hamm cast as Mr. Sinister. The keyword being “had,” as plans for that have apparently been scrapped. But it looks like they have already settled on a replacement.

More on the reshoots and the new villain here below.

New Mutants

Studios rescheduling their films is a very common practice. It doesn’t matter if it’s a small film or a big-budget blockbuster flick. Some of the time they move their films to an earlier date, like Disney did with Avengers: Infinity War. Other times, which is most often, a film gets pushed back to a later date.

This is what 20th Century Fox is doing with X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants (again). Both film will now hit theaters in 2019. Check out the new dates below.

Kevin Feige Talks Future Beyond ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ Possibly Adding X-Men and Fantastic Four

Just because Avengers: Infinity War could be the end, doesn’t mean it will be the end. In the film, Thanos seeks to collect the all-powerful Infinity Stones to bring forth balance within the universe. The Mad Titan suffered a great tragedy when he couldn’t save his home planet of Titan, and now he believes that if he is to save the universe, he will have to destroy it.

So it’s unclear what kind of future the founding Avengers have beyond Infinity War. However, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige clearly has a plan. In anticipation for the film, Feige is talking about the future of the studio and the effect the Fox and Disney merger could have on their plans for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. More on the story, below.

X-Men: Apocalypse Jean Grey

And this time, we will get it right. Or at least we can hope that Simon Kinberg gets it right as he makes his directorial debut with X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which as you could have guessed, will be a loose adaptation of the “Dark Phoenix Saga” comics storyline written by Chris Claremont. Though, this wouldn’t be the first time that the X-Men franchise has attempted Dark Phoenix in a film. In 2006, X-Men: The Last Stand tried to use a resurrected Jean Grey (then played by Famke Janssen) as the Dark Phoenix who was being manipulated by Magneto (then played by Ian McKellen).

Now with the film franchise’s timeline being rebooted, we can look forward to some wrongs being righted. We are getting our first look at Dark Phoenix, which includes our very first peek at Jessica Chastain‘s villainous character. Check them out below.

Lizzy Caplan in talks for Gambit

Remember how Gambit was one of the X-Men spinoffs FOX would be working on? The film would follow the critical and commercial success of Deadpool and Wolverine. Even Channing Tatum, who would star as the title character, appeared at SDCC to announce that the project was in development. But the film hit multiple production stalls and was even forced to be put on the shelf because they were unable to find a director. Both Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman walked away from the project due to creative differences. However, it seems like the studio was able to settle on Gore Verbinski to direct.

With a director locked down, the film can finally start taking the necessary steps towards production. But before they can do that, they have to assemble a cast. Reports say that Lizzy Caplan is in talks to be the first to join Tatum. More on the story below.

Jessica Chastain

The X-Men saga films are never short on star power. From Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart to Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, and Jennifer Lawrence, these films have found a way to rope in some very high-profile names into their superhero universe. And now you can add Jessica Chastain to that list. Reports are saying that the Academy Award-nominated actress is currently in negotiations to play the lead villain in X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

X-Men: New Mutants

Another name has joined the cast of Fox’s X-Men spinoff X-Men: The New Mutants. Or just New Mutants. No one seems to know for sure. IMDb has it as the former. The trades seem to like the latter. Apparently we get to call it whatever we like. Personally, I’m going to call it Boo! A Madea X-Men Spinoff. Y’know, because it’s said to be a horror.

Anyway, getting back on track. It’s being reported that Stranger Things star Charlie Heaton is in negotiations for a role in the spinoff. He joins the previously cast Anya Taylor Joy, Maisie Williams, and Rosario Dawson on the movie.

New Mutants

Unlike the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the X-Men ensembles have been pretty straightforward comic book flicks. The Wolverine and Logan had their own sub-genres while Deadpool was a comedic superhero film. Now The New Mutants, another spinoff, will take on a genre that’s never been seen in any of the X-Men films or spinoffs. Director Josh Boone says it will be a “full-fledged horror movie,” and that they are trying to do something much different.

Also, Rosario Dawson is in talks to have a leadership role in the film. More on these two stories below.

The Gifted

First, it was Legion. Now it’s The Gifted. Just as Marvel has expanded their little movie universe by taking a step into TV, so has FOX with their X-Men properties. Though these shows then to vary between praises and criticisms, nothing is really going to stop them from being made. So in order to stop from being repetitive, Fox’s The Gifted gets a new angle. A family on the run with their father who used to work for the very people who are chasing them.

While it’s a premise we’ve seen before, the added mix of a child with special powers does provide a new Marvel twist. And that may just be the thing to make this show a hit.

Check out the full trailer below.
