Ehh, never been into Marvel's version of multiverse. I'm aware of them (Squadron Supreme), but that always seemed DC's jam.
It's a fairly straightforward conceit and they haven't yet done a crossover reveal in that manner even with the world-bending concepts put to screen thus far. On top of that, besides Quicksilver (which already provides its own story potential), these two universes were occupied by completely different characters.Marvel. But Marvel Studios has a decent record of improving on the material.
That was out of the blue. First, Multiple Man. Now, Kitty. I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm totally conflicted about the merger. There's finally starting to move away from the general formula and make different and great X-Men movies.
Well, Deadpool was the turning point in FOX thinking on what they were doing with X-Men. No Singer or Kinberg were attached. So they realized, they have a plethora of characters to choose from with the right vision.FOX...
I'm not sure if I should be happy with this news, or frustrated. I like that they're finally trying to branch out with characters who aren't Wolverine, Magneto, or Xavier (even if it took over a decade) but why now? It just feels pointless now, unless Disney lets them continue even after the merger is finalized.
I am curious to see if they'll keep Ellen Paige or recast.
The Hollywood Reporter just revealed that the horror-inspired X-Men film will now get a significantly later release date, jumping from April 13th, 2018 to February 22nd, 2019.
According to the report, this was partially influenced by the film's potential international market, as it would have overlapped in some countries with the release of Deadpool 2.
Deadpool 2 also received a new release date, moving up two weeks from June 1st to May 18th. And the Gambit solo movie - which was just met with yet another director exit this morning - has been pushed from February 14th, 2019 to June 7th, 2019.
Smells like merger issues. They probably are adjusting things for Disney. Hmm.Really because of international release dates?
Do lower budget horror movies even do that well overseas?
Something else is up that delay is way too long.
