Fans excited to see The New Mutants are going to have to wait much longer as the film has been plucked from its April 13, 2018, release date and rescheduled to hit theaters ten months later on February 22, 2019.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film being pushed back is due to the fact that both The New Mutants and Deadpool 2 would have been in playing in theaters internationally at the same time. However, TheWrap reports the film is actually being pushed back because it’s not scary enough. The New Mutants is the first X-Men film to step into the horror genre as it draws influence from New Mutants No. 18.
According to my sourcing, as for why “The New Mutants” is getting pushed back nearly a year after promotional campaigns had already commenced, an insider who spoke with TheWrap said that the move is being made because the film isn’t scary enough.https://t.co/NDAJ9ilf25 pic.twitter.com/dGAn4zAthx

In addition to New Mutants, Deadpool 2 and Gambit have also received new release dates. Deadpool 2 has actually been shifted up, set to hit theaters on early two weeks earlier on May 18, 2018. The film will now open in between Avengers: Infinity War and Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Gambit is being pushed back following the news that director Gore Verbinski exited the project, Fox has slated the film to hit theaters four months later on June 7, 2019, rather than its original date of February 14, 2019. The film is said to be leaning heavily on the comedy as the film is centered around a heist which insiders feel will perform better as a summer release.

20 Marvel Movies That Could Be Made After Disney’s Fox…
So the impossible has happened: Fox and Disney have recently agreed to a major deal, one which means that — aside from a few limitations with the Hulk and Spider-Man, who have their rights wrapped up with Universal Pictures and Sony Pictures — every major Marvel property will soon be able to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the plans for the remainder of Phase 3 likely won’t change that much, barring possible post-credits scenes showing major cameos being added on short notice, this development certainly gives Marvel an embarrassment of riches to work with for future film adaptations.
Since Marvel Studios had previously claimed that they have an outline for the next 20 movies they’ll make without the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, or any of their associated characters, I thought it would be best to similarly go all-out and suggest 20 more for the heck of it.
Here are, in no particular order, 20 movies that Marvel should think about making with a complete MCU at their fingertips. Click Next to get started!
