Director Simon Kinberg shared a set photo from Dark Phoenix last night as reshoots for the upcoming X-Men film are beginning.
Last month it was reported Dark Phoenix was headed back to Montreal for reshoots and this morning two reports went out claiming the length of the reshoots. QFTC President Pierre Moreau reported Dark Phoenix was headed back for three months while Collider states the film is only shooting for two-and-a-half weeks.
The film is reportedly reshooting some of the film’s third act, adding new scenes, and adding to existing scenes. Dark Phoenix was originally scheduled for November but was later pushed back to February. This all is happening as Marvel Studios gets closer to obtaining the rights to the X-Men films due to the Disney-Fox merger. Kinberg actually shared a photo last night from the set of Dark Phoenix on his Instagram Story before all the rumors began circulating again about the film today:

20 Marvel Movies That Could Be Made After Disney’s Fox Acquisition
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!
