X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX Delayed Until 2019 As THE NEW MUTANTS Gets Pushed Back AGAIN

Fox waited until nearly midnight to drop this bombshell but there's no way they can avoid backlash for this decision! X-Men: Dark Phoenix and New Mutants have been delayed and you can find out more here.

Disney's acquisition of Fox is expected to be completed by mid-2019 at the latest and based on the newly announced release dates for X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants, there's a very good chance that deal will have gone through by the time they reach theaters. Originally set for release on November 2nd, 2018, Simon Kinberg's X-Men: Dark Phoenix is now slated for February 14th, 2019

That's a pretty significant delay and could be down to the fact that the movie reportedly makes use of a great deal of VFX. There could be any number of reasons for this release date change, including issues with the finished product or Fox being more confident with a February debut for the Marvel movie. 

As for The New Mutants, that's already been moved from April 13th, 2018 to February 22nd, 2019 to accommodate reshoots adding more horror elements and another character but now isn't being released until August 2nd, 2019. Disney will probably own Fox by then so don't be surprised if it never actually reaches
theaters or heads straight to Blu-ray/TV. For now, though, we'll have to wait and see!
