Dark Phoenix moves (again) to later release date

Dark Phoenix Mystique Death Dark Phoenix moves (again) to later release date

In Dark Phoenix, the X-Men face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey.

Fox originally had Alita set for release on 21 December 2018, which would put it up against Paramount's Bumblebee, Warner Bros.' Aquaman, Sony's Holmes & Watson, Universal's Welcome to Marwen, AND Disney's Mary Poppins Returns, all of which are due for release that same week.

This move follows the film's official trailer that was released on this past Wednesday and gave us our first look at the next entry in the X-Men saga.

Taking Dark Phoenix's original release date of 14 February 2019 is Fox's new sci-fi epic Alita.

That's right: After being slated for a February 14, 2019, theatrical release, Dark Phoenix won't hit theaters until June 7, SYFY WIRE has confirmed. The first time Fox pushed the film back, they brought the cast back for major reshoots to the final act.

Directed by David Leith from a script written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick & Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, and Jack Kesy. If this goes on long enough, Fox might never have to make another Deadpool movie.

One intriguing film on Fox's updated slate is an "Untitled Deadpool" movie that will be released on december 21.

The release-date musical chairs has clearly been done with an eye to better position the films for potentially stronger performances. Dark Phoenix has faced several setbacks, this being the latest one to worry fans.

Apart from being frustrated that Dark Phoenix is four extra months away than we thought, fans have been curious to know the exact reason for the change in release date.
