FOX Sets Release Dates For FANTASTIC FOUR 2 And THE WOLVERINE Sequel
Some rather surprising news regarding 20th Century Fox‘s Marvel movies have hit this evening. Despite all the rumors of absolute chaos and disorder regarding the Fantastic Four reboot directed by Josh Trank, the studio has gone ahead and set a release date for the reboot’s sequel as well as James Mangold‘s follow-up to The Wolverine. While those are shocking in their own right, a third movie that isn’t named at this time has gotten a release date as well.
BoxOffice.Com is reporting that Fox has their schedule in place for the next few years. According to their Twitter page, Fantastic Four 2 is set for a July 14, 2017 release. The first one hasn’t even started filming yet, and there are all those rumors about the film’s production, so it will be interesting to see if that date sticks. The release for the reboot has moved several times already. Mangold‘s Wolverine sequel will begin filming after X-Men: Apocalypse and will hit theaters on March 3, 2017. An as of yet unnamed Fox/Marvel film will be released on July 13, 2018 as well. There have been numerous rumors about a potential Fantastic Four and X-Men crossover, so hey let the speculation begin on that one. If it’s not that, it could be the X-Force movie from Jeff Wadlow. It was also revealed that Matthew Vaughn and Mark Millar‘s The Secret Service will hit October 24th of this year.
So things are moving fast at Fox. With X-Men: Apocalypse already being written, the Fantastic Four set to begin productions soon, The Wolverine sequel’s story currently being ironed out, and X-Force still being in the early development stages the last we heard, there are going to be a lot of new movies coming out over the next few years. With release dates set, I’m sure we’ll start hearing a few more details in the coming months about the line-up. What do you think about the news?
