Update: ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ and ‘The New Mutants’
OK. Got some good news and some bad news comic book fans. The good news? You’ll still be able to see X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants in theatres. The band news? You’ll have to wait longer.
Dark Phoenix was supposed to be out November 2, 2018. Now: February 14, 2019.
This movie will focus on Jean Grey (played by Sophie Turner), a deadly powerful mutant who loses control of her abilities after being possessed.
And yes, you can expect a buttload of other characters in this movie (directed by X-Men screenwriter and producer Simon Kinberg) – in no order: Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), Alexandra Shipp (Storm) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler)!
My inner comic geek is freaking the F**K out right now!
The New Mutants was originally supposed to be out April 13, 2018 got switched to February 22, 2019… and now, August 2, 2019 (almost a year & 1/2 after the original date).
True comic book geeks will remember this series. Josh Boone directs the movie… and stars Maisie Williams (Wolfsbane), Charlie Heaton (Cannonball), Anya Taylor-Joy (Magik), Henry Zaga (Sunspot), Alice Braga (Cecilia Reyes) and Blu Hunt (Mirage).
Fear not, Deadpool 2 is still on schedule. In theatres May 18, 2018! Not. Long. Now.
I LOVE HOW MANY COMIC BOOK MOVIES ARE BEING MADE NOW!
