Unfortunately it is becoming more and more common that we are hearing this but just a couple of days after releasing it’s trailer and poster letting people know to expect the latest installment in the current X-Men Universe, Dark Phoenix on February 14 of next year. Fox has just announced that the film has now been pushed back until June on 2019.
The new X-Men movie will drop on June 7, 2019. Now to compete with summer movie season. This is two months before the other mutant based feature The New Mutants is slated for August 2, 2019.
It’s going to be an interesting set of events with Fox also given the recent developments on Gambit of the basis of the film even still without a director.
Do you think that it is solely to place the film in summer blockbuster season or could reactions to the trailer play a factor?
