Sneak Peek more new images from director Simon Kinberg's "Dark Phoenix", based on Marvel Comics "X-Men" mutants, noted as the final "X-Men" team-up movie, before Disney recasts for a new series of films, opening June 7, 2019:

Along with Sophie Turner, the new film also stars Michael Fassbender reprising his role as 'Magneto', who heads to the 'mutant' island 'Genosha', offering a new life for himself and his fellow mutants.

"He’s set up this place for mutants that don’t have a home to go to," said Kinberg, "and they can seek refuge there.

"They have to work as a community but it’s a safe place for them and they’ll be accepted...

"...It’s the mutant homeland."

"...in "X-Men: Dark Phoenix"...

"...returning from a mission in space, 'Jean Grey' is exposed to the deadly radiation of a solar flare...

"...and briefly attains her 'ultimate potential' as a telepath and telekinetic.

The New Mutants May Be Delayed Again And Released On Hulu

Remember when we were set to have three X-Men movies released in 2018? Well, we did get Deadpool 2 – twice, in fact – but Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants were both pushed back until this year. Dp looks set to land in June as planned, though early reactions are certainly not positive, but we haven’t had any update about New Mutants for ages. So is it still on target to hit theaters in August?

Apparently not, according to one source. Merc with A Podcast’s Scott Bechtel claims that a split between Fox and director Josh Boone is due to cause another delay to the movie’s release. It seems there are two options being discussed at the studio right now: a possible cinematic release in November, or dropping it onto Hulu in October.

Hooray! These Are the Release Dates For All 13 Disney Movies Coming Out in 2019

At 2018's annual CinemaCon event in Las Vegas, Disney and Marvel revealed some pretty epic news: the joint studios unveiled the entire release slate all the way through the end of 2019, starting with the highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War and ending with the anxiously needed Star Wars: Episode IX. Obviously, since then titles like Infinity War, Incredibles 2, and Mary Poppins Returns have all hit theaters, but there are still quite a few exciting films on the horizon in 2019.

While sadly there's still no sign of the live-action Mulan reboot, which has been pushed back to 2020, or Marvel's Black Widow solo film, revivals of beloved stories like The Lion King and Aladdin should keep us busy. There's also the matter of Disney's acquisition of 20th Century Fox to consider, which means films like Dark Phoenix and New Mutants are also on this list.

Deadpool Writers Say They Expect There To Be A Third Film

Though Charles Xavier and his peers still have at least one more adventure to go in the form of Dark Phoenix, a lot of fans are already looking ahead with excitement to the fresh start for the X-Men saga that the Disney/Fox merger is expected to bring. X-Force, on the other hand is a different matter, with the Deadpool series currently carrying a lot more momentum with both critics and the filmgoing public than the property it spun off from.

With that in mind, it came as no surprise to see the backlash that greeted the recent rumor that X-Force could be one of the many X-Men-related projects to get dropped in the transition to Disney, with even Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld sharing a few words of commiseration. But while we still don’t know for sure if this ensemble flick will ever see the light of day,

Simon Kinberg Sci-Fi Series Set for Apple

Joseph Baxter Jan 17, 2019

X-Men: Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg has landed a series commitment with Apple for an untitled sci-fi series.

Simon Kinberg has been a productive creative source for Fox, having written four entries in its X-Men film franchise, the last of which, Dark Phoenix, serves as his directorial debut – currently in post-production. However, it appears that Kinberg just made a deal to join an already-impressive lineup of creative talent for the streaming content platform of tech giant Apple.

Apple has given Kinberg a 10-episode straight-to-series commitment for an untitled sci-fi series, according to Deadline. While details on the project – set to be co-written by Kinberg and David Weil – are scarce, it is being described as “large, large budget,” as well as “ambitious” and “character driven.” With casting reportedly underway as we speak, its globally-shooting production is being targeted for the summer. Kinberg and Weil will serve as executive

Apple Nears Commitment For Sci-Fi Series From Simon Kinberg And David Weil

  • Deadline
Updated with more details: Apple is near a deal for an untitled science fiction series created and co-written by Simon Kinberg and David Weil. Kinberg has been the creative backbone of the X-Men franchise at Fox, and Amazon is casting up the Weil-created series The Hunt, with Alfonso Gomez-Rejon directing, and Al Pacino and Logan Lerman starring in a fact-based drama about Nazi hunters.

The Kinberg/Weil series hails from Platform One, and if it makes would mark the first series green light for the company run by CEO Katie O’Connell Marsh. Genre Films’ President of TV Audrey Chon would be an executive producer on the show, along with Kinberg and Weil. Specifics are under wraps for right now, but sources said this is a large-budget, ambitious, character-driven genre show that will go into production this summer.

James McAvoy isn’t sure the X-Men will work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

We’re now seemingly just a couple of months away from the completion of Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, which means that Marvel Studios will soon have access to Fox’s roster of Marvel characters from the Fantastic Four and X-Men franchises.

That’s certainly a mouth-watering prospect for Marvel fans – and for Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige, who said he’d been dreaming about it for 20 years – but it appears that not everyone is convinced that the X-Men in particular are a good fit for the McU.

Actress Sophie Turner, who plays Jean Grey in the X-Men franchise, recently stated that she doesn’t think “the themes through X-Men will collaborate well with the Avengers”, and now that sentiment has been echoed by her co-star James McAvoy:

“I don’t know if the X-Men could go into the Marvel universe, I’m not sure,” McAvoy told

New X-Men: Dark Phoenix Reaction Calls It An Embarrassment To All Involved

X-Men: Dark Phoenix has had a troubled journey to theaters, whatever way you look at it. The very premise – redoing a story we already saw adapted last decade – left fans shrugging while the numerous delays to the release date dampened interest even further. And then, of course, there’s the sense that this could be the last ever entry in Fox’s X-Men franchise as they’re about to be hoovered up by Disney.

All that’s to say that Dark Phoenix is not at the top of many people’s most-anticipated superhero movie of the year lists. However, it might just find itself at the top of a few worst movies of the year lists if this early reaction proves to be any indication of how things turned out. Someone who’s seen a screening of the film has reached out to We Got This Covered to give us their thoughts on it,

James McAvoy Remains Uncertain How Successfully ‘X-Men’ Can Be Folded Into McU

James McAvoy Remains Uncertain How Successfully ‘X-Men’ Can Be Folded Into McU
James McAvoy and Samuel L. Jackson are joining forces in M. Night Shyamalan’s “Glass” this month, but the upcoming Disney-Fox merger means we could be seeing two of their most popular film characters on the big screen again in the not so distant future. Jackson’s Nick Fury is a flagship character in Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will finally be able to feature “X-Men” characters once the merger takes place. McAvoy is the big screen’s current Professor Charles Xavier, having played the character in three Fox-backed films, plus the upcoming “Dark Phoenix.”

When asked by Yahoo Entertainment about the X-Men joining the McU, McAvoy expressed some concern over how successfully the Disney team will be able to achieve the goal. “I don’t know if the X-Men could go into the Marvel universe, I’m not sure,” McAvoy said.

“Maybe they could? But I

X-Men: Beale Street Actress KiKi Layne Wants to Play Storm

Matthew Byrd Jan 15, 2019

KiKi Layne is "actively plotting" to play Storm in an X-Men adaptation.

Actress KiKi Layne is campaigning to play X-Men's Storm.

In an interview with Variety, Layne revealed that she's a huge fan of Storm. In fact, she describes the character as "an image of myself, of a powerful chocolate black woman," and that she thinks "that’s an amazing image to have." At some point, she would love to have the chance to play the character.

Actually, it sounds like Layne might be doing a little more than wishing. She mentioned that her agents, managers, and herself have been "actively plotting" to secure the role. What, exactly, that means is up for some debate as Layne didn't elaborate on the extent of her active pursuit of the role. It's also possible that she was at least half-joking about the idea of being able to actively

James McAvoy Questions The X-Men’s Place In The McU As ‘Beale Street’s’ KiKi Layne Campaigns For Storm Role In Reboot

2019 is a bit of an odd year if you’re an “X-Men” film fan. Normally, you’d be excited to know that this year brings not one, but two X-films to theaters with “Dark Phoenix” and “The New Mutants.” But, alas, it’s bittersweet because Fox is scheduled to become officially acquired by Disney in the next couple of months, which essentially means these final two films are lame ducks.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix’s Big Death Has Been Revealed

At this point, it’s no secret that X-Men: Dark Phoenix will bump off a major character when it hits theaters.

In their red-hot cover story from late last year, Entertainment Weekly teased that Dark Phoenix will contain a “massive twist halfway through that will irrevocably change the course of the franchise,” while everyone’s also already laid eyes on that photo depicting a graveyard scene featuring Xavier (James McAvoy), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Scott/Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee).

That tells us two things: first is that X-Men: Dark Phoenix will definitely include a big death, and second, it’ll probably involve either Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and/or Magneto (Michael Fassbender). And though the fans certainly have their guesses on who it might be, sources close to We Got This Covered have now confirmed which character will die and how it goes down (spoilers to

The Budget For X-men: Dark Phoenix Has Reportedly Ballooned To Over $200 Million

A lot of people are already expecting director Simon Kinberg’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix to bomb at the box office this year. I haven’t seen a lot of excitement for it. I think fans are more excited about the future of the franchise when it finally comes back to Marvel Studios.

A new report from the Observe says that “Dark Phoenix‘s budget is rumored to have ballooned to an exorbitant $200 million thanks to costly and extensive reshoots that wound up delaying the film’s release date by four months.”

We’ve been hearing that this movie has gone through extensive reshoots for awhile. Most of those reshoots are said to deal with the the third act of the film. $200 million is a huge budget for any movie! Hell, most of the Marvel Studios films don’t have that big of a budget.

‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ Star KiKi Layne Is ‘Actively Plotting’ to Play X-Men’s Storm
KiKi Layne is on a roll.

Not only has she received rave reviews with her feature film debut in “If Beale Street Could Talk,” but she’s following up the Barry Jenkins-directed movie with a big-screen adaptation of “Native Son.” Directed by Rashid Johnson from a screenplay by Suzan-Lori Parks, “Native Son” will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 24.

“I’m just feeling thankful that right out of the gate, I get to let audiences know that this is the type of work that really matters to me, and that I recognize that I have the ability to say something with my art, with the projects I choose,” Layne told Variety on Sunday at the Critics’ Choice Awards.

That’s not to say that she’s only interested in indie films. In fact, she’s got a particular superhero she wants to tackle — X-Men’s Storm.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix budget reportedly balloons to $200 million

M-Day is approaching for 20th Century Fox’s X-Men series, with The Walt Disney Company’s acquisition of Fox’s film and TV assets heading into its final stages and expected to complete by the end of the first quarter of 2019.

Over the weekend it was rumoured that the studio has now pulled the plug on all of its Marvel development slate – including the planned X-Force, Doctor Doom, Gambit, Silver Surfer, Kitty Pryde and Multiple Man films – leaving just X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to round out Fox’s near-20 year Marvel run.

Both of those movies were originally slated for release last year, but have been pushed back multiple times due to extensive reshoots. And, in the case of Dark Phoenix, it seems this additional photography has seen the movie’s budget balloon, with The Observer reporting that Fox has pumped over $200 million into the film’s production.

Lana Condor explains why Jubilee doesn’t feature in X-Men: Dark Phoenix

While X-Men: Dark Phoenix brings back the majority of the cast of 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse for what looks certain to be the final instalment in Fox’s X-Men series, there will be one omission from Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, with Lana Condor revealing that she was unable to reprise her role as Jubilee due to scheduling conflicts.

“I didn’t end up doing Dark Phoenix cause I was doing To All the Boys,” Condor tells Collider. “I hope X-Men lives on so hopefully in the future I’ll be able to go back to that family because it’s where I feel very indebted and loyal to… It’s funny because I, of course, love X-Men forever. X-Men was such an incredible experience because I had never worked before, I was so excited to be there. I love Jubilee and I hope that in the future she’ll get her due.

Here’s How Michael Fassbender Could Look As Reverse-Flash

Ezra Miller’s Scarlet Speedster is due his own solo movie at some point on the big screen. And when The Flash film does eventually materialize, there’s obviously one villain that fans want to see face off against Barry Allen more than any other: his nemesis Eobard Thawne Aka Reverse-Flash. The character’s been played by Tom Cavanagh and Matt Letscher on TV, but who could portray the evil speedster on the big screen?

Well, fans have got creative over the past few years and created art imagining their personal picks for Reverse-Flash. Just a few that’ve been suggested as perfect candidates to date include Dexter‘s Michael C. Hall, X-Men: First ClassKevin Bacon and Legion’s Dan Stevens. Now, Reddit user Smileysyklops has put forward their choice in the form of another X-Men star, Michael Fassbender, and here’s a rendition of what the German-Irish actor could look like as Thawne.

The New Mutants Said To Be The Final X-Men Universe Movie Before Reboot

Though the title of The New Mutants suggests a fresh start, it sounds like the film might well be the final installment in a cinematic universe that hasn’t been new in a long time, with a recent report alleging that the Josh Boone-helmed flick will be the last cinematic release of the ­X-Men franchise before Marvel Studios hits the reset button.

In light of the impending Disney/Fox deal, leaker Daniel Richtman has relayed intel that the X-Men universe will be calling it quits after Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants, with all other projects, from Gambit to Doctor Doom, reportedly getting the axe. Richtman also mentions that while the planned X-Force movie isn’t “officially” dead, it’s unlikely at this stage that the film is still going to be made under Fox.

Though these claims are yet to be confirmed, they wouldn’t be all that surprising.

Gambit, Doctor Doom And More X-Men Films Said To Be Cancelled

With the Disney/Fox deal roughly two months away from becoming final, the end is seemingly near for the current version of the X-Men universe, and according to a new report, several mutant-related properties have now been canned.

The claim comes to us from frequent leaker DanielRPK, who relays intel that the various spinoff movies planned for Gambit, Doctor Doom, Silver Surfer, Kitty Pryde and Multiple Man have all been shelved. And while this report has yet to be confirmed, it would genuinely surprise us if any of these projects saw the light of day at this stage, at least in the forms that Fox intended.

Out of all those movies, the only one with a release date set is Gambit, which was said to be headed for cinemas on March 13th, 2020. Nonetheless, the fans have long had their doubts that the film would actually make that deadline, especially in
