Marvel Studios

Marvel Studios doesn’t mess around when it comes to any announcements on a public stage like San Diego Comic-Con. After telling the world about a slew of upcoming titles including The Eternals, Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Thor: Love and Thunder, Blade, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige took to the stage the say that there were other titles in the works as well, they just didn’t have enough time to get to them.

And just as a nice tease, Feige revealed that these titles include Fantastic Four, Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2, and a film that could, possibly, feature some mutants. Check out more on all of these titles below.

Dark Phoenix starring Sophie Turner

It seems that Dark Phoenix, the final installment of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men film franchise was destined to fail right from the get go. Of course, the first film helped usher in a wave of adaptations which would eventually lead up to the highly successful Marvel Cinematic Universe, and to a certain extent the DC Extended Universe. However, after debuting with a weak $33 million, it is starting to look like X-Men is more X-Meh.

And like most big budget films that don’t to live up to expectations, there is always some sort of behind the scenes troubles that may have contributed to failures. That is no different with Dark Phoenix. More on the report below.

Since Disney acquired 20th Century Fox, the Mouse House’s theatrical release schedule has been significantly updated. Now the studio will be responsible for the release of all of the upcoming Fox films like Dark Phoenix, Stuber, Spies in Disguise, and much more. While some of the bigger films will stick with their current dates, others like The New Mutants will be doing some shifting to later ones.

Additionally, Disney has announced release dates for untitled Marvel Studio films, the future of Star Wars after Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and the Avatar sequels. You can find all of the dates below.

‘Dark Phoenix’ Trailer: The X-Men May Be Experiencing Some Déjà Vu

Dark Phoenix starring Sophie Turner

Dark Phoenix may be the final X-Men film under the 20th Century Fox banner before it goes over to Disney. If that is the case, then they will be going out on their own terms. And it looks like director Simon Kinberg could end the franchise with a story arc that we have already seen before: “The Dark Phoenix Saga.”

In it, Jean Grey becomes possessed by a cosmic entity and kills nearly all of life in the process. With the X-Men trying to regain control of their friend, there are outside forces that seek to manipulate her. And now we are seeing more of that, and how the new villain (Jessica Chastain) will stop at nothing to use Jean’s (Sophie Turner) new powers for her own nefarious goals. Fox has released a new trailer for Dark Phoenix, and you can check it out below.

Lauren Shuler Donner On The Future Of ‘Deadpool’ and The Rest Of Fox’s ‘X-Men’ Franchises Under Disney

Deadpool 2 Trailer

Last year, the Department of Justice approved The Walt Disney Company’s $71 billion offer to acquire Fox’s entertainment assets, including television and film properties. The news was a cause for celebration for Marvel fans as the move meant that X-Men and Fantastic Four characters would finally be able to play in the Marvel Studios sandbox.

However, this also meant that the current X-Men franchise, including its many spinoffs like Deadpool and the yet-to-be-released The New Mutants, was in serious jeopardy of no longer continuing or being rebooted. Deadpool, a raunchy superhero with a debaucherous behavior, doesn’t quite fit into what Disney has done with the MCU and the family friendly films they release.

Long-time X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner spoke about passing the franchise to their new owners, Disney. She also addressed its future, as well as the future of Deadpool and when The New Mutants will be released. More on the report below.

Kevin Feige Comic-Con #4

It won’t be long until we finally get to see the X-Men and Fantastic Four finally play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Thanks to Disney acquiring Fox Entertainment last year, we will finally get to see the two interact with The Avengers and Spider-Man. While the deal is expected to close near the end of this month, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is already talking about when we could possibly see either of these properties in the MCU.

More on what he had to say below.

‘The New Mutants’ Reshoots Haven’t Happened Yet; Could Still Aim For An R-Rating

New Mutants

The one X-Men film that seems to have fallen by the wayside is The New Mutants, a spinoff that centers on a different group of mutants who are forced to come to grips with their mutant powers while being held in a secret government facility. The film was supposed to hit theaters earlier this year before being pushed back to February 2019 and then to August 2019. The reasons for those new dates was to give director Josh Boone some extra time for reshoots. However, to push back the film almost two years after the film was originally scheduled to be released seems strange. And to say that the reason for that push was to get some reshoots in seems even odder.

But that appears to be the case. The reshoots are pushing the film’s release date to August of next year. But not because the reshoots are happening now. It’s because the reshoots haven’t happened yet. More on the report below.

Dark Phoenix Trailer Header

Dark Phoenix, the latest installment in the X-Men film franchise, was supposed to be released in November. But the film needed some additional photography and reshoots, and as a result, it pushed the release date to February of next year. Whether or not this was a sign of trouble is unknown. But at least we get to finally see what has become of Simon Kinberg‘s directorial debut.

Fox has dropped the first trailer for Dark Phoenix, which is based on the story arc of the same name which sees Jean Grey, one of the most powerful members of the X-Men, fuse with a cosmic entity who has the power to destroy the entire galaxy. Check out the trailer and a new poster below.

Disney CEO Bob Iger On Fox’s X-Men: “There Shouldn’t Be Two Marvels”

Marvel X-Men and Avengers crossover

Marvel Comics may share one universe, but when it comes to films, that’s a different story.

Sony has their Spider-Man-Less universe, Disney has the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and FOX has X-Men and Fantastic Four. But since Disney acquired Fox earlier this year, for $71 billion, many are hoping things are going to change. And it looks like that may be happening. Just how soon remains to be a question.

Disney CEO Bob Iger recently spoke about what the merger could do for their Marvel properties. But one thing is for sure, Iger believes that there should not be “two Marvels.” Check out the story here below.

‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ Not Going Through 3-Month Reshoot, As Rumored

X-Men: Apocalypse Jean Grey Dark Phoenix

When Fox announced that X-Men: Dark Phoenix would be pushed up from its original November 2018 release to February 2019, most took it as a bad sign. The film, which would mark Simon Kinberg‘s directorial debut, would need some additional photography — meaning, reshoots — after some test screenings, which is part of the entire process to help make improvements for the film. But the new release date was troubling at best. And with much of the cast having already moved on to other things since production ended last year, it would be difficult to get everyone together. Luckily, rumors of a 3-month additional shoot have been exaggerated. More on the story here below.
