DARK PHOENIX Officially Fox's Final X-MEN Movie; Looks Like NEW MUTANTS Will Get A Theatrical Release

Last night at CinemaCon, we got official confirmation that Dark Phoenix would serve as a "sendoff" for Fox's X-Men franchise. Plus, it looks like New Mutants will get a theatrical release after all...

Disney's CinemaCon presentation made it very clear that Fox's roster of Marvel characters are now firmly part of the Mouse House, as the likes of Wolverine and Deadpool featured in the opening sizzle reel. We also got a look at Disney's full 2019 theatrical slate, and both Dark Phoenix and New Mutants are part of it.

Although plans could change, this obviously suggests that Josh Boone's teen X-Men movie will indeed make it to the big screen, despite numerous rumors to the contrary.

In addition, Disney chief Alan Horn officially confirmed that Dark Phoenix will be "the perfect sendoff for our X-Men team," and the "final chapter" for the X-Men world. So, while The Merc With a Mouth will more than likely continue to be played by Ryan Reynolds, it looks like the rest of the mutant characters will definitely be recast.

A new trailer for the Simon Kinberg-directed movie was also shown, and while it hasn't been released online, word is it was a notable improvement on the previous teasers.
