According to a new reveal, 20th Century Fox has re-scheduled number of their movies and two superhero movies have fallen victim to that. Hop in to know more.
Here we go again. A 20th Century Fox movie release gets delayed…..Again. Well , In this case two movies get delayed. New Mutants and X-Men : Dark Pheonix. Do not worry we are not talking about Gambit. That movie is on another level of pushbacks.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix which was originally slated for November 2, 2018, moves to February 14, 2019 and New Mutants, previously slated for February 14, 2019, has been pushed all the way back to August 2, 2019.
Tracking Board Editor-in-Chief Jeff Sneider broke the news by tweeting an email from 20th Century Fox regarding release date changes for the studio’s slate. You can have a look at that below.

Nobody has any kind of idea why all this push backs are taking place although the general perception would be that it has to something with the ongoing Disney-Fox merger. Keep in mind that New Mutants has already been pushed back once. It was originally slated to release on April 13th, 2018 which is roughly two weeks from now. That time Fox gave the reason of reshooting a new character in the film and amping up the horror factor.
X-Men : Dark Phoenix was short on promotional material for a movie to be released on early November this year so it can be a product of Post – production delays. With the X-Men ensemble landing just one week before New Mutants’ supposed release date , the Josh Boone directed horror superhero flick automatically makes way and drops down further.
At the start of the year we were having nine superhero movies releasing in the theaters in 2108, now we are down to seven. Next thing you know Infinity War gets delayed by a couple of decades. Just kidding. Get ready for 27th April.
