Fox Schedules An Untitled Marvel Film For IMAX
IMAX and 20th Century Fox have released a press release extending their partnership for a number of upcoming films including a mystery Marvel movie. Is this another X-Men installment or something else?
Currently, Hugh Jackman's next solo Wolverine film will drop in 2017, and two Untitled Marvel films are slated for March 2, 2018 and June 29, 2018.
Fox is presently developing Deadpool 2, New Mutants, Gambit, a Fantastic Four sequel and a Stan Lee Biopic. There's also another X-Men film in development with both Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg confirming a '90s setting and expressing interest in tackling the Dark Phoenix storyline. It's widely believed that one of the 2018 release dates belongs to Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool sequel but it's anyone's guess as to what Fox's second 2018 Marvel release could be.
