Dark Phoenix and New Mutants Delays

Update: The Hollywood Reporter has more details on the Dark Phoenix reshoots. It seems that the third act of the movie needs some work and the reshoots are expected to cost under $10 million.

Earlier today, news dropped that Fox was moving X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants all the way to 2019. We now have a clearer picture about why this happened, and what the future holds for these films. More on the Dark Phoenix and New Mutants delays below.

X-Men Dark Phoenix

While the Marvel Cinematic Universe is showing no signs of slowing down, the X-Men franchise has been running out of steam. Even though Logan was a huge success, that movie went against the grain of the primary X-Men franchise. Meanwhile, X-Men: Apocalypse was a massive disappointment, and fans have been wondering if producer Simon Kinberg has any tricks left up his sleeve as he steps behind the camera for the first time with the next sequel.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will adapt an iconic storyline from legendary X-Men comics writer Chris Claremont. And no pressure: it’s only one of the most revered arcs in the long history of the mutant series. This will be the second time the film franchise has attempted to bring it to life on the big screen after X-Men: The Last Stand poorly adapted the storyline, but Claremont doesn’t see that as a problem. In fact, he hopes that this will be the X-Men movie that gives the Avengers a run for their money. Read More »

x-men dark phoenix score

There’s no putting this rock god into retirement. Last year, Hans Zimmer dramatically announced that he was “retiring from the superhero business” after he was beaten down from composing the score for Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

But that retirement was short-lived, as it appears that the Oscar-winning composer is returning to superhero movies to score Simon Kinberg’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

X-Men Apocalypse criticism

These days, filmmakers doing press for an upcoming sequel tend to transform their interviews into an ongoing apology tour for the previous movie. “Yeah, that one stank, but we learned a lot and this one will be better!” has been trotted out enough to feel meaningless at this point. Still, X-Men: Apocalypse was so bad that I can’t help but cling to Simon Kinberg‘s words when the longtime franchise writer/producer (and director of the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix) admits that the previous core film in the series flopped on a pure creative level.

x men dark phoenix first look

Update: More images from X-Men: Dark Phoenix have been released and we’ve added them below.

Out of the ashes of Apocalypse, a phoenix is born.

A first look at X-Men: Dark Phoenix has been released, along with plot details about Jean Grey’s turn to the dark side. The famous comic book arc was dabbled with in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand with Famke Janssen as Jean Grey, but the soft reboot of First Class has allowed the X-Men universe to have another go at the acclaimed X-Men storyline, with the new Jean, played by Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, at the center of it all.

X-Men Dark Phoenix Colossus

Filming on X-Men: Dark Phoenix is currently underway, but one of the superhero film’s characters is still shrouded in mystery. Actor Daniel Cudmore, who played the super-strong Russian mutant Colossus in X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, and X-Men: Days of Future Past, has revealed that he is also a part of the upcoming sequel, but he didn’t confirm whether or not he’s playing Colossus or an entirely different character. Hmm…

Halston Sage X-Men

We know that X-Men: Dark Phoenix, writer/producer Simon Kinberg‘s directorial debut, will primarily be about Sophie Turner’s young Jean Grey. (It’d be super weird if they chose that title and it didn’t focus on Jean.) But this is an X-Men movie, and that means, historically speaking, it needs an expansive cast of characters that might end up with decent supporting roles or, just as likely, could be little more than glorified extras.

We know the upcoming film involves the light-emitting, pop star mutant Dazzler, and now it seems that the producers may have found an actress to play her.
