Three X-Men Films in 2018! Fox Confirms Release Dates For ‘DEADPOOL 2’, ‘NEW MUTANTS’ And ‘DARK PHOENIX’

Under what seemed like it was under a cloud of uncertainty Fox has just confirmed its release dates for its next three upcoming X-Men projects. Which of course includes the ‘New Mutants’, ‘Deadpool 2’ and the next film in the main X-Men franchise ‘Dark Phoenix’

‘New Mutants’ is confirmed for April 13, 2018

‘Deadpool 2’ will hit theaters June 1, 2018

‘Dark Phoenix’ is set for release November 2, 2018

Now there’s a few things to take away from this. First, it is interesting that ‘New Mutants’ is the first release of the year, with little to no news about the project being available other than rumors. You would assume the project would be filming now or would have to start soon to hit that release date. But Fox has a good track record with releasing X-men films earlier in the year, just look at ‘Deadpool’

Second, ‘Deadpool 2’ has clearly been given a big summer release date, which of course the first one famously did not have. It was released in February to huge numbers because it had little to no competition. It appears as if Fox is ready to tangle with the big boys when it comes to the ‘Deadpool’ franchise. And it’s probably a smart move, the name is out there and people want more of the “Merc with a Mouth”, so expect big numbers for ‘Deadpool 2’

Finally, the release of the fourth or wait seventh X-Men film? Who really can say but ‘Dark Phoenix’ is set for a November release and that is interesting. If you look at the schedule, there is nothing major coming out that month other than the sequel to ‘Fantastic Beasts’ and of course that could change but if it doesn’t, it won’t have much in the way of competition. The only thing that may stand in its way is the movie itself. Fox of course has played this game before with ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ and that was a major screw up. So let’s hope they can get the Dark Phoenix Saga right this time.-Jackson Hayes
