Men: Dark Phoenix & New Mutants Are Undergoing Reshoots

Fox Pushes Back Releases Dates For X-Men: Dark Phoenix & New Mutants

The Hollywood Reporter said "the horror-themed New Mutants will undergo a round of additional photography this summer that will insert a new character into the thriller".

Fox allegedly wants nearly 50% of the film to be reshot, and the addition of one or two new major characters. Perhaps they feel they've got enough "X-Men" this year, with "Deadpool 2" opening in May.

Some curious news broke recently regarding two of 20th Century Fox's upcoming superhero films.

New Mutants, another film in Fox's X-Men series from director Josh Boone and starring Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga, Blu Hunt, and Alice Braga, has been pushed back from its February 22, 2019 release date and will now arrive on August 2, 2019.

A year that once looked pretty X-Men heavy, with three features to its name, will now instead only have Deadpool to play with.

Dark Phoenix will now slide into a release date of February 14, 2019.

In New Mutants, five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves. The reshoots for "New Mutants" are expected to be way more extensive than your average blockbuster. But now we learn of a further six month delay for the movie. The actress called the film's delay "frustrating" and "disappointing", but she maintained that reshoots are ultimately a good thing because they represent a chance to make the film stronger. It's now been pushed back a second time to August 2. Bryan Singer's Bohemian Rhapsody takes over that November 2 slot.

ComicBook.com has learned that Dark Phoenix's release date is changing as a result of a decision Fox made to rework portions of the film following test screenings. "So, hopefully, all of these reshoots and adding of the new character that will give the fans an altogether satisfactory, wonderful product".
