Fox Shifts Its “X-Men” Film Slate Drastically

In the wake of Gore Verbinski’s departure from the “Gambit” film earlier today, 20th Century Fox has done some massive shifting of its entire release slate of “X-Men” movies.

The good news is “Deadpool 2” is being moved up by two weeks and will now open May 18th, just one week before “Solo: A Star Wars Story”.

The real shock though is that “The New Mutants,” Josh Boone’s horror-themed take on Marvel’s teen heroes, has been delayed ten months. Originally slated for April 13th, it will now hit February 22nd 2019.

“Gambit” meanwhile, which was slated for a February 14th 2019 opening, will now hit June 7th 2019 assuming it finds a director soon that it doesn’t lose.

The release of “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” remains unchanged.
