Catch A Sneak Peek At The Fiery Logo Of X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Brace yourself, guys; this one is coming in hot.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix was present during Fox’s recent CinemaCon showcase – ditto for The Predator and Deadpool 2 – and one eagle-eyed fan (h/t ComicBook.com) managed to capture the sequel’s fiery logo before it was pulled off screen.

It’s admittedly a little blurry and looks to have been taken on a smartphone in dire need of an upgrade. Be that as it may, the title card itself features a red-hot flame rising nearing the ‘P’ of Phoenix, while the letter ‘X’ doubles as the famous X-Men insignia. It also reaffirms that Valentine’s Day release date for X-Men: Dark Phoenix, after it swooped in to claim the mid-February corridor once occupied by Channing Tatum’s long-delayed Gambit movie.

That tells us one of two things: either Remy LeBeau’s standalone adventure has been placed on ice until late

Channing Tatum Celebrates 38th Birthday Newly Single — How He's Moving on After Jenna Dewan
Happy birthday, Channing Tatum!

The Magic Mike star turns 38 on Thursday, capping off what’s been a intense year for that actor, who recently split from Jenna Dewan after nearly nine years of marriage.

The jointly announced breakup has “been hard for Channing,” a source close to the couple previously told People. “He always had Jenna and their family to go home to, so having their separation be ‘official’ now has been a big adjustment for him.”

The actor stepped out earlier this week to promote his new animated film Smallfoot at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he walked

X-Men and Fantastic Four Aren't Coming to the McU for Years

When Disney announced their $52 billion acquisition of 20th Century Fox back in December, it touted that the sale would bring 20th Century Fox Marvel characters like the X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but don't expect that to happen anytime soon. Over the weekend, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was promoting the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, and he was asked when fans should expect these Fox-controlled Marvel characters within the McU. Here's what the producer/studio president had to say, when asked if the Disney/Fox merger is complicating plans for the McU, indicating fans shouldn't be holding their breath for this to happen.

"No, because any of that deal would take a while to get going and years from whenever and if ever it happens. So, certainly it won't impact the five movies we've announced, and it probably wouldn't impact anything for a handful of years after that.

Fox’s Gambit movie now looking to start shooting in June

20th Century Fox’s Gambit movie suffered its latest setback in a seemingly endless series of setbacks in January when it was announced that director Gore Verbinski (The Lone Ranger) had followed in the footsteps of both Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) by exiting the project.

As a result, Fox pushed back the planned March production start date for the X-Men spinoff, as well as its latest release date for February 14th 2019.

The film, which – if it ever gets made – will star Channing Tatum as Remy LeBeau, is now scheduled to arrive on June 7th 2019, and according to Omega Underground, Fox is now looking to get cameras rolling on June 19th in New Orleans.

If Fox is confident enough to set a start date, then one would have to assume the studio also has a new director on board for the film.

The Dark Phoenix Saga Was Almost Woven Into Bryan Singer’s X-Men 2

As you’ll no doubt recall, 2018 began with X-Men fans expecting no fewer than three additions to 20th Century Fox’s superhero universe: The New Mutants, Deadpool 2 and Simon Kinberg’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Sadly, that wasn’t to be, as Fox has since bumped New Mutants and Dark Phoenix far, far into 2019. Indeed, the former X-Men movie is now expected to release 16 months after first scheduled. 16 months!

However, had things panned out differently, the classic Dark Phoenix story would have made its way onto our screens much sooner – 2003, in fact, when Zak Penn asked Bryan Singer, director of X2: X-Men United, to shelve the cosmic adaptation for a later date on the belief that Fox’s franchise still needed to lay down its roots.

Channing Tatum's Gambit Film is the Little Engine That Could; It Now Has a Production Start Date

Fox's feature film adaptation of Gambit has gone through a ridiculous amount of production hell. But it is still managing to press forward no matter what obstacles get in its way! This movie is like the little engine that could.

Over the years, Gore Verbinski, Doug Liman, and Rupert Wyatt were all on board to direct only to drop out of the project after a little time trying to develop it. Verbinski was the last director to drop out, and the studio has yet to hire a replacement. But that isn't stopping them from setting a production date!

There's a new script that was recently turned in to the studio and according to Omega Underground, Gambit’s new production start date is June 19th. With this date being set, I imagine that the studio will announce a new director soon. Hopefully this time they stick around and finish and actually shoot the film!

Gambit Finally Shoots This Summer, Director Announcement Coming Soon

With 20th Century Fox recently pushing the release dates for two of its three X-Men movies originally slated to open this year (The New Mutants and X-Men: Dark Phoenix), many are wondering if Gambit is still moving forward, and it seems that is actually the case. Despite losing director Gore Verbinski in January, a new report claims production is still expected to begin this summer, with a June 19 production start date revealed. While this has not been confirmed by the studio, it also comes on the heels of another report that revealed a new draft of the script was coming in this month.

A report from March on the impact of the Disney-Fox merger on 20th Century Fox's movie slate revealed that the studio has given the green light for Gambit with a studio-approved budget, but that report didn't state when production may begin. That report, paired with this June 19 production start date,

Gambit Secures New Filming Start Date; Director Announcement Imminent?

For Gambit, there may well be light at the end of the tunnel after all.

According to Omega Underground’s sources, filming on the Remy LeBeau spinoff movie is now expected to get going on June 19th in New Orleans, Louisiana, which is also set to play host to Captain Marvel in the coming months.

This tells us that 20th Century Fox is finally – finally – ready to spearhead the troubled production after it was placed on ice soon after the departure of Gore Verbinski, who became the third director to walk away from the X-Men solo flick after Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow 2). Perhaps we’ll hear word of Verbinski’s replacement sooner rather than later?

Channing Tatum, meanwhile, remains attached to the title character, whose standalone pic has been described as “having a heavy comedic tone revolving around a heist, [and] will do better as a summer Marvel movie.

Cheeky International Poster For Deadpool 2 Places The Merc Between Domino And Cable

Change is afoot for 20th Century Fox and its lucrative X-Men franchise. And we’re not talking about the impending merger with Disney.

Deadpool 2 notwithstanding, the studio’s lineup has been subject to some pretty substantial changes this week, beginning with the decision to postpone X-Men: Dark Phoenix until February 14th, 2019 – the date once occupied by Channing Tatum’s long-gestating Gambit movie before it encountered trouble of its own. The New Mutants was also affected, after the Josh Boone-directed spinoff was delayed for a second time, taking it all the way back to August 2nd, 2019 – 16 months later than first scheduled.

Both movies are expected to undergo extensive reshoots in the coming weeks, when comic book fans the world over will be flocking to see Deadpool 2, and a little-known Marvel property called Avengers: Infinity War. And though that may be true, Fox has now dropped another international poster

Reason Behind X-Men 7 and New Mutants Delay Explained

Fox has delayed the release dates for both X-Men: Dark Phoenix and New Mutants, but it sounds like they had pretty good reasons for doing so. Originally, both movies were set to debut in 2018, with New Mutants originally set to arrive in April and Dark Phoenix slated for November. However, The New Mutants has now been bumped back for a second time and X-Men 7 has been pushed out of the calendar year as well. So, why did Fox decided to make these moves?

Starting with X-Men: Dark Phoenix, its original release date was November 2, but it has been moved to February 14, 2019, a date once occupied by Channing Tatum's long-gestating Gambit movie. Simon Kinberg, longtime writer and producer of the X-Men franchise, makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix. According to a new report, the movie was tested recently and the studio decided to order some reshoots. This is common

Fox Allegedly Bracing For Extensive Reshoots On X-Men: Dark Phoenix, The New Mutants

20th Century Fox’s slate of X-Men movies has officially been reshuffled. And not for the first time.

Earlier this morning, we brought you the news that both X-Men: Dark Phoenix and Josh Boone’s horror-tinged spinoff, The New Mutants, had relocated, with the latter now expected to hit theaters on August 2nd, 2019 – 16 months later than first scheduled.

For Dark Phoenix, it’s a little different. While the Simon Kinberg-directed blockbuster was originally on course to arrive in November, the Powers That Be have delayed the cosmic adventure until February 14th, 2019, where it will open in close proximity to Hellboy and M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass. That’s disappointing in and of itself, though we’re now learning that 20th Century Fox is bracing for extensive reshoots across both productions.

Sources close to ComicBook.com suggest both Dark Phoenix and New Mutants have been earmarked for heavy reshoots following today’s double postponement.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Pushed To 2019 As The New Mutants Gets Delayed Again

20th Century Fox’s X-Men lineup for 2018 has been whittled down to one.

After losing The New Mutants to 2019, we now have word that Simon Kinberg’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix has officially been rerouted to February 14th, 2019 – the date once occupied by Gambit – where it will open in close proximity to Hellboy and M. Night Shyamalan’s atypical threequel, Glass. It’s bad news for Josh Boone’s New Mutants, too, which is now expected to drop on August 2nd, 2019 – 16 months later than first scheduled. Yikes.

Rumor has it that Fox plans to incorporate an additional character during The New Mutants reshoots (Warlock, perhaps?), all the while amplifying the underlying horror element that helps set it apart from its mutant peers. Hell, in the eyes of Josh Boone, the star-studded spinoff may prove to be one of the “hardest PG-13s ever made.” How’s that for a pull-quote?

Fox pushes back X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants

Fox had big plans for the X-Men franchise in 2018, with the studio originally planning to release a triple-header in The New Mutants, Deadpool 2 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

However, back in January, the studio announced that it was pushing back the release of The New Mutants from April 2018 to February 2019 – with the film set to undergo “significant reshoots”, including the addition of a brand new character – and now we have word of more delays.

Firstly, The New Mutants has been delayed a further six months, and will now arrive on August 2nd, 2019, while Simon Kinberg’s directorial debut X-Men: Dark Phoenix has been pushed back from its original November 2nd release date and will now arrive on February 14th 2019.

The Valentine’s Day 2019 date was originally earmarked for the Channing Tatum-headlined Gambit movie, which will apparently arrive on June 7th 2019 (until it is pushed back again).

Mad Max: Fury Road costume designer joins Gambit movie

With a new director on board in Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean) and a release date of Valentine’s Day 2019 set, it seems that 20th Century Fox’s long-delayed Gambit movie is really starting to pick up steam.

According to Omega Underground, the project has now enlisted Oscar-winning costume designer Jenny Beavan, whose previous credits include the Academy Award-winning The King’s Speech and Mad Max: Fury Road. Beaven has also previously worked with Verbinski, with the pair having collaborated on this year’s A Cure for Wellness.

Gambit: release date confirmed, Gore Verbinski directing

Ryan Lambie Simon Brew Oct 13, 2017

Pirates Of The Caribbean director Gore Verbinski is confirmed as the director of Gambit, and the X-Men spin-off now has a release date...

A project that has dipped in and out of the news so often we'd long since begun to think it would never happen, the Gambit movie now looks as though it's finally moving ahead. Pirates Of The Caribbean director Gore Verbinski has now formally signed up as director, and will be working from a script written by Josh Zetumer. Unless something mysterious has happened behind the scenes, Channing Tatum's still on board in the title role.

Gambit even has a release date: the 14th February - now 20th Century Fox's favourite month, we're guessing, after the huge success of Deadpool. Will Tatum's superhero spin-off gain quite the same traction? We've a fair while before we find out.

Until then, we'll

Four news promos for 20th Century Fox and Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman sequel deployed over the course of the weekend, and we’ve gathered every last snippet for your viewing pleasure.

His newest project follows a teenager named Alex (Luca Oriel) who crosses paths with a mysterious box containing a demonic presence, and he mistakenly unleashes the sinister spirit, which wreaks havoc on Alex’s life and forces him to confront the evil that looks to consume his very soul.

How to fix the X-Men Cinematic Universe

Anghus Houvouras on how Fox can fix the X-Men: Cinematic Universe…

Fox has been cultivating the X-Men cinematic universe for nearly two decades. It’s been that long since fans were first treated to Marvel’s most magnanimous mutants on the big screen. The first X-Men movie wasn’t perfect, but it was a solid first entry into what would become a wildly disjointed franchise that struggled to find its place in an era of endless comic book adaptations. That seems strange when you remember that X-Men kind of kicked off the comic book movie trend of the 21st century. And yet, even with an eight year head start, Fox has been unable to capitalize. The X-Men franchise still lacks a clear and concise direction.

That has changed somewhat in the last year after Deadpool was released and donkey punched expectations. With much fanfare and little faith from Fox, the

Get Out Producer Jason Blum on Jordan Peele’s Directorial Debut

There are few producers who have had the overwhelming success of Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions from their early days turning Oren Peli’s low-budget Paranormal Activity into a hugely profitable franchise, followed by the equally successful Insidious and The Purge movies. Jason Blum also has an Oscar nomination notched onto his career belt for his involvement in getting Damien Chazelle’s Oscar-nominated Whiplash made, and Blumhouse were involved with bringing Jem and the Holograms to movie theaters. (Sorry, but I actually kind of liked it, even though it bombed… big time.)

Jordan Peele’s directorial debut Get Out will be the third time Blumhouse has worked with an actor making their transition into directing, as Jason Blum handled the same duties on Joel Edgerton’s The Gift and Leigh Whannell’s Insidious: Chapter 3 a few years back.

Get Out is a very different movie in which Daniel Kaluuya

Coen Brothers Bring Pens To ‘Scarface’ Remake, Universal Eyes Replacements For Antoine Fuqua

Over the past few years, the Coen Brothers have been happy to work on scripts for other directors. They penned “Gambit” starring Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz (which you probably forgot existed), put their touches on Angelina Jolie‘s “Unbroken” and Steven Spielberg‘s “Bridge Of Spies,” wrote George Clooney‘s forthcoming “Suburbicon,” signed up to write the internet thriller “Dark Web,” and now they’ve got another project they’ll give their Midas touch.
