Dark Phoenix and Gambit gets delayed , Deadpool 2 re-release in PG-13 ?2 min read


In recent news , FOX has yet again shifted some of the release dates of their movie ; and that include Dark Phoenix and Gambit as well. FOX’s re-attempt at the epic Marvel saga centering around Jean Grey now has moved on to a June 7 , 2019 spot. he Valentine’s Day spot is now reserved for Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel , who is now clear of Aquaman and Bumblebee radar. Deadline reports that the shift is done looking at the huge market of China especially since the trailer earned 44 million in the first 24 hours there.

However , personally I don’t think this to be a very good professional decision. Especially considering the fact that most people have already set in their minds the release date from the first trailer. Not to mention that to be free of a Captain Marvel movie that hit 3 weeks later , FOX is challenging a Avengers 4 movie that will be 1 month old in theatres. Also out of our sector , we have the Chris Hemsworth led Men in Black Spin-off and Toy Story 4.

As that of Gambit featuring Channing Tatum in the infamous role , it has shifted to a March 13 , 2020 release date. The movie was previously being worked upon by Reid Carolin and Joshua Zetumer with no directors attached. The movie has been delayed so many times that fans probably can’t care less about that. Also not to mention , considering the Disney FOX Merger goes in somewhere early next year , Disney might relieve FOX of this little pain it has been carrying for too long.

In other news , that free spot left by Alita: Battle Angel will now be occupied by a PG-13 re-release of Deadpool 2. Yeah yo heard that right ! FOX knows that it has no limitations on it now and any loss/profit in production is likely to be the headache of Disney from now on . So why not just… 

While the studio has remained numb regarding the whole affair , Ryan Reynolds has summarized his thoughts in one tweet :
