Less than two days after the first trailer premiered, the release date for the next “X-Men” movie has been pushed back — again.
Rather than coming to theaters on February 14, the movie has been moved to the busy summer blockbuster season on June 7 (via Deadline). That’s about a month after Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” comes to theaters in May, and a month before “Spider-Man: Far From Home” arrives in July. Either Fox feels confident enough about the movie to release it among so many other big titles, or last-minute changes to the movie are potentially being made.
This is the second time that Fox, the studio behind the “X-Men” franchise, has pushed the movie. It was originally scheduled for this November, and production issues have reportedly plagued it. Montreal newspaper La Presse reported in July that the movie was undergoing extensive reshoots.
The first “Dark Phoenix” trailer debuted during Wednesday’s “The Late Late Show” to mixed reactions from fans. Some are excited to see Simon Kinberg’s directorial debut, but many feel it looks too similar to 2006’s disappointing “X-Men: The Last Stand,” which also attempted to bring the acclaimed Dark Phoenix storyline from the comics to the big screen.
“Gambit,” an “X-Men” spin-off movie starring Channing Tatum that has faced development issues for years, was also moved from June 7 to March 2020, according to Deadline.
