20th Century Fox is going all-in on their recent success with their comic book franchises, and added six tentative dates for upcoming mystery Marvel films. With three planned releases already, including The New Mutants on April 13, Deadpool 2 on June 1, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix on November 2.

The new dates include: June 7th and November 22nd in 2019, March 13th, June 26th, and October 2nd in 2020, and March 5th in 2021. A few of those will most certainly be X-Force and Deadpool 3, as well as possibly the rumored Fantastic Four reboot, the second in a few short years.

Jessica Chastain in Final Talks for X-Men: Dark Phoenix

X-Men: Dark Phoenix is set to be released next November, and the cast is finally starting to come together, with details about where we can expect the story to go. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Jessica Chastain is in final talks to play Lilandra, leader of the Shi’ar Empire.

The trade is reporting that Lilandra is the film’s primary antagonist, so it looks like we can expect the X-Men to go cosmic, as well. An interesting thought, but with such a hit-and-miss record on Earth, we’ll see how well the film can do off-planet from a storytelling perspective.
