‘X-Men:’ Fox Pushes ‘Gambit’ Movie Back To Spring 2020

Gambit Simon Kinberg20th Century Fox has moved the release date for the X-Men film Gambit from the summer of 2019 to the spring of 2020.

The studio recently set new release dates for a number of projects and Gambit has been pushed back almost a full year from June 7, 2019, to March 13, 2020. The X-Men film has now replaced the untitled Fox Marvel film that had previously been set for the same release date.

Are you disappointed to hear that the Gambit film has been pushed back? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!

The project isn’t the only X-Men related film to receive a new release date, as Dark Phoenix was moved from February to summer 2019.

In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.

Directed by Simon Kinberg, Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.

Dark Phoenix will be released in theaters on June 7, 2019.

    Wheedon watches Flash and Supergirl…

    I’m simultaneously perturbed yet, somehow, not surprised.

  • Maxi Iroh

    The Wonder Woman movie probably has some elements from Whedon’s script.

    Also, this made remember about that Super MAX Green Arrow movie, they could probably do that film with 60 to 80 million.

    • SAMURAI36

      I love how Whedon throws soft jabs when he talks about DC. Dude is one of the most passive aggressive people in Hollywood.

      For example:

      I did not see Suicide Squad.

      Why not?? The film has been out for almost 3 months.

      I saw Batman vs. Superman. Everybody’s got their own method.

      What does that even mean? Sounds like he’s trying to be diplomatic about saying “I don’t like DC films”.

      I think Marvel has been more successful systematically.

      Well duh, of course they have. They have 13 movies. Were they more “systematically successful” (whatever that means) when Marvel was only 3 movies into their franchise?

      Because numbers and reviews say otherwise.

      DC has been more cinematic—their stuff looks amazing—but I feel like Kevin [Feige, President of Marvel Studios] is a really good storyteller.

      In other words, he’s saying he feels like Feige is a better storyteller, than the ones at DC.

      He really cares about coherence,

      And DC doesn’t? Because based on the past 3 DCEU films, there has been far more “coherence” than in all these Marvel films put together.

      and I feel like style never defeats substance at Marvel,

      Really? Because AOU had soooo much “substance”?

      but a little style creeps in. Ant-Man had some, Doctor Strange might be funky,

      How are you talking about a film you haven’t even seen yet?

      and they are doing very fun things on TV.

      ON TV…. You mean AoShit? The show you are a part of? There’s a shameless plug, if there ever was one.

      And you can’t be including Netflix in this part of your statement, because you make the differentiation later:

      The Marvel-Netflix thing is working really well.

      You mean, better than AoShit? Cuz that show has been teetering on cancellation for the past couple of years.

      DC’s decision to have their shows on TV with different actors playing the same characters at the same time as their movies, is a little interesting.

      As opposed to, what? Not having the movie actors show up on TV at all?

      Everytime he mentioned DC, it was to the tune of a backhanded compliment. If you could even call it a compliment.

      • George Daugherty

        It’s all a matter of opinion. You couldn’t find the substance in Ultron while I could.
        All film and tv is subjective.
        I don’t see them as jabs. I see them as him not agreeing with DC’s approach. It’s just an opinion.

        • SAMURAI36

          Just because it’s his opinion, doesn’t mean its a tenable one. I’m all for rooting for one’s team, but you don’t get to inflate your team’s stats, and/or downplay those of the other team.

          To say, or even imply, that your side cares more about coherence than the other side does, is downright false.

          Had he just said “ya know what, I’m just not a fan of what DC is doing”, I’d have more respect for him & his opinion. That certainly wouldn’t be the first time we’ve heard such an opinion.

          But to embellish on the “greatness” of Marvel (while completely ignoring their faults), while passive-aggressively vilifying DC, is beyond disrespectful.

          And you are quite free to have that opinion about AOU. However, that film’s flaws have been debated ad nausuem on the internet.

          • Chris Schroeder

            And no, that’s not an “asking to be blocked” comment. Just curious, I always enjoy hearing new opinions and whatnot

          • SAMURAI36

            Wait, what was your question? I didn’t see it anywhere here.

          • Chris Schroeder

            Sorry, realized it said it was pending approval -_-

            It was just in regards to the beginning of your comment saying:
            “Just because it’s his opinion, doesn’t mean its a tenable one. I’m all for rooting for one’s team, but you don’t get to inflate your team’s stats, and/or downplay those of the other team.”

            Isn’t that what’s done everytime you say Agents of S***.

            Apparently I spelled that out the first time and it wouldn’t post, also, not really sure how to reply to individual key points in comments like you do, sorry its all a mess lol.

          • SAMURAI36

            No worries. You gotta spell it as “AoShit”. The system reads it as a unique word that way, LOL.

            But saying AoShit isn’t an example of downplaying the stats of that show. The show really is doing bad, and has been nearly since its inception.

            I’ve posted the ratings for AoShit several times on here. The show has been on the brink of cancellation more than once, and still is. I’ve also posted how Clark Gregg called viewers “losers” for abandoning the show.

            It’s clear that ABC has given up on AoShit. They moved it to the 10PM time slot, which is the death knell for most TV shows. Putting Ghost Driver on the show was clearly a last ditch effort to save the show.

            None of this is opinion. However, none of this is anything Whedon touched on, when he said:

            and they are doing very fun things on TV.

            Which happens to be the show he works on. Moreover, I find Whedon to be wishy-washy. One moment, he’s vilifying his experience with Marvel, the next moment, he’s chanting them up, while throwing shots at DC.

            This is the typical Marvel approach, that I’ve seen.

          • Chris Schroeder

            Yeah I realized that after hahaha.

            I didn’t mean downplaying it in that regards, I just always try to stay away from making names for things and whatnot and it wasn’t like a personal attack against your comments in the least bit either.

            I totally agree with your opinion and posting the negative reviews. AoS has been back and forth between horrible episodes, halfway decent ones, and the rare good episode. the inclusion of Ghost Rider (granted not the Johnny Blaze one) has actually been kind of fun to see this season. I don’t always watch the show though, only here or there when a movie is coming out and I know there will be that throw a way line that somehow includes itself in the bigger MCU. I just enjoy being along for the ride, same with all the DCEU and TV shows.

            The time slot doesn’t bother me so much, my concern is to see if it lasts AFTER this time slot. CW did the same thing with Supernatural for seasons 6 and 7 (after the show SHOULD have ended with the 5th season) and moved it to the Friday night Death Slot, but it bounced back. I just wanna see where it all goes.

          • SAMURAI36

            No worries, I didn’t take offense to what you said. I’m always glad to explain myself, especially when the convo’s are productive, even if we disagree.

            It’s cool if you like AoShit. I”m not here to try to convince you to not like it. What you eat, don’t make me S***, as they say. But even so, you are still able to acknowledge the show’s flaws.

            To me, Marvel’s flaws are obvious. I’ve gone into great detail with pointing them out more than once on here. Just like I’m mindful of DC’s flaws.

            But the problem that I have, is that people (the media–this site included, the fans, and even the people who work for Marvel) approach Marvel in a Trumpian fashion, where they see no wrongs about Marvel, and when their obvious flaws are pointed out, folks from all 3 sectors love to shift the focus to DC.

            Like right now, this site is trying to present Dr Strange yet another Marvel success, because it has a “perfect score” on RT. That means nothing, when it has a 6.9 rating on that very same RT, and when MAJOR sites like this one:

            http://www.forbes.com/sites/scottmendelson/2016/10/24/doctor-strange-review-the-sorcerer-subpar/#1cb67e574214

            Are giving not-so-stellar reviews. But where’s the conversation about this? Just like people who are voting for Trump, people are going to pretend that there are no issues.

            If this film doesn’t do well (I don’t think it’ll get past $550M, especially when Fantastic Beasts hits the theaters like a nuke a few weeks later), then as the article/review above states, Marvel will really have to rethink all those MCU films that don’t feature RDJ, or Avengers Ensemble films. Especially uncertain, C-lister films like BP (with a 90% black cast) and Captain Marvel (female lead).

          • Chris Schroeder

            I wholeheartedly agree. I don’t try to push Marvel as the “can’t do wrong” studio, nor do I demonize DC for their films.I think both studios have a lot of great and both have their flaws and could stand to learn from each other. Same with the car industry, Mustang v Camaro, WRX v Evo, its the competition that causes each other to grow and not remain stagnant and in the end its the viewers that reap the benefits.

            I think its good that Marvel does try and push for lesser knowns, granted Ant Man and Dr Stranger were big back in the day, its good for them to come to the forefront. I seriously can’t wait for the day when DC’s movie universe is large enough and solid enough to push past the main characters (Superman, Batman, WW, the Flash) and bring out the lesser knowns; The Question, Wildcat, The Huntress,

            Same with Villains. Both Series have an enormous wealth of villains to choose from yet we always get Lex Luthor, The Joker, Bane, etc. Same issue I have with Marvel using mirror villains of their heroes.

            This is why I love DCTV. Between that an the DCEU, we are having our cake and eating it too. DC is putting their 2nd and 3rd tier characters on the forefront on a weekly basis, and they don’t have to wait 2-3 years for a film to do it.

            This is where, IMO, DC is leading the pack right now. They can make a character like Green Arrow popular, and not have to spend a half a billion to do it.

            Same with Villains. Both Series have an enormous wealth of villains to choose from yet we always get Lex Luthor, The Joker, Bane, etc. Same issue I have with Marvel using mirror villains of their heroes.

            I’d say DC has already started that, with SS. And that’s with their 3rd film in. Plus, we are getting Shazam, Cyborg, and JL Dark (which will have the benefit of an already intro’d Constantine character). The beauty about DC for me, is that it won’t take 14 films for them to bring their characters to the forefront, like it has done for Marvel.

            Plus, DC does what Marvel can’t/doesn’t, by intro’ing their characters via animation first. Vixen is benefiting greatly from this.

          • Chris Schroeder

            I agree, especially having the Vigilante coming up on Arrow. What I really hope for is to have the original on an episode of Legends of Tomorrow. Always been one of my favorites.
            Gotham would also be perfect to have the Question, and I’d love to have Adam West play the Grey Ghost on Gotham as well.
            Ever since Smallville I though GA could hold his own tv show, I love that its still going strong.
            Again, I agree, it’ll be nice seeing more and more from the Rogue’s Gallery. Batman and Flash have SO many to choose from. The only thing that let me down with BvS was I felt Doomsday came too soon. I get why they did it, but I would have loved him for a 3rd Superman solo movie where theres the destruction and death of Superman being built up during a whole movie. I would have preferred like a Bizarro to come in BvS (if they avoided the Death of Superman but kept Lex’s p[lot)

        • SAMURAI36

          And remember, this is the same guy that vilified Marvel for their faults, & has since then been attempting to walk those statements back, up to & including this latest statement.

      • Axxell

        LOL! You’re so freaking bitter about Marvel doing better than DC, that pretty much anything short of sücking DC’s d¡ck is an insult to you….you just HAD to nitpick every single sentence

  • SAMURAI36

    I love how Whedon throws soft jabs when he talks about DC. Dude is one of the most passive aggressive people in Hollywood.
