Has Fox Removed X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX From Its Release Schedule?

X-Men: Dark Phoenix has already been delayed due to significant reshoots but has Fox now removed it from its release schedule altogether? UPDATED WITH RESPONSE FROM FOX!!!

!!!UPDATE!!!
Fox has reached out and confirmed that they have NOT pulled Dark Phoenix from the web site. The fact of the matter is that other than a "First Look" in December for the Entertainment Weekly cover,  the film was never added. Official web sites for Fox films typically launch at the same time that the first trailer lands online.

Simon Kinberg will make his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix but problematic test screenings reportedly resulted in Fox ordering significant reshoots, something which may not bode well for the movie (bear in mind Kinberg is said to have helmed Fantastic Four's reshoots with disastrous results). 

Now, speculation is mounting that Fox may have pulled the movie from its release schedule altogether because it's disappeared from their website. It could be a glitch, an error resulting from Dark Phoenix being pushed back from November to February, or nothing whatsoever. However, it's also feasible that with the Disney/Fox merger on the horizon, something strange could be going on with this one.

Fox could have decided to pull the plug on the movie because it's not working or there may be so many problems with Dark Phoenix, it's going to be delayed again. Something which is also odd is the fact the studio won't be bringing the Marvel Comics adaptation to Comic-Con despite the fact a teaser trailer really should be ready to go by this stage.
