Fox Bumps FANTASTIC FOUR, THE SECRET SERVICE & ASSASSIN’S CREED To Later Dates
Looking at the 2015 film schedule, fans of the nerd kind are going to have a mind-blowing year. First up is the extremely anticipated sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron, which sees the re-teaming of Marvel’s iconic team, with the new additions of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, as well as the introduction of the mega-baddie Ultron, being played by the incomparable James Spader. Then there is the yet-to-be-titled sequel to Man of Steel, which sees Henry Cavill don the blue and red once more, with Ben Affleck filling the role of a tired and weathered Batman. Later in the year is the much discussed Star Wars: Episode VII, which JJ Abrams is helming. Not to mention the third, and final, film in The Hobbit trilogy and a little film called Ant-Man. Lest we forget Huger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2, the Terminator reboot, Bond 24, Jurassic World and Crimson Peak. That’s a lot of incredible movies to look forward to!
There are three more films to keep an eye on that year being released by Fox. Josh Trank’s highly anticipated reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise was slated for a March 6, 2015 release, has now been bumped to June 19th, pitting it against the big guns of Age of Ultron and Batman Vs. Superman. The March date it is vacating will now be fill be Matthew Vaughn’s adaptation of Mark Millar’s The Secret Service. Assassin’s Creed, which will star Michael Fassbender, will be moving from June to an August 7, 2015 debut.
The studio must have some faith in the FF4 reboot as this new release date puts it right in the middle of Marvel’s Age of Ultron, which hit theaters in May, and WB‘s Man Of Steel sequel in July. It also puts it in close proximity to Ted 2 and Jurassic World. Regardless, fans of film are in for a treat come 2015. It may put me in my grave from all the awesomeness.
