Question Release dates for Wolverine 3 & X-Force?

When do you think Fox will release Wolverine 3 and X-Force in theaters?

Wolverine 3 - I'm really hoping for a 2016 summer release date, 3 years after The Wolverine and 2 years after DOFP. As of right now these dates are taken:

5/6/16 - Marvel Studios
5/27/16 - Alice in Wonderland 2
6/10/16 - The Amazing Spider-Man 3
6/17/16 - Finding Dory/How To Train Your Dragon 3
7/1/16 - Angry Birds/Independence Day 2
7/8/16 - Marvel Studios
7/15/16 - Anubis

So the first weekend of may and memorial weekend are taken. I don't want another late July release, since it didn't help The Wolverine a lot.

Maybe the third weekend of May would be good for Wolverine 3, May 20, 2016?

As for X-Force, I don't see it being released.

July is fine. But I can also see March or April 2016, still plenty of time for that. X-Force is probably May 2017. I don't think they both come out the same year.

I think May is the best option right now, summer is gonna get crowded anyway, they should release it earlier while the blockbuster fatigue hasn't set in.

X-Force isn't in 2015?
I thought they're filming next year.

X-Force should come in 2016 yes or yes.

Wolverine 3, I dont mind the year, it could be 2016 too, or 2017, or 2018.

As long as I get a new concept/movie, Ill be happy. That and then an OT sequel, of course.

If both of them will be made next year then sure I would like to see them in 2016.

Though I'm not sure how the audience would response to the X-Force movie.

At this point, 2015 is too crowded and could you imagine 3 X-Men movies released in 3 years? Even the producers would want to give themselves a 1 year break for that.

Not crowded for FOX though. They won't just sit out a year, I don't think it works like that for them.

Exactly. With Marvel already producing two movies a year, Sony announcing they're going to expand the Spidey universe and DC no doubt finally get their butts in gear hopefully - Fox can't afford to sit out a year with their X-Men or Fantastic Four franchise anymore.

If they ever want the X-movies to be as big as they should they're going to need to kick it into high gear. Not saying they need to start churning them our factory style, but they are going to have to start being a little more aggressive with their releases.

Just because other studios are pumping out movies every year, or twice a year, it doesn't mean other studios should do it. It would just lead to over-saturation in my opinion.

And yes Sony announced that they are expanding the Spidey universe but as of right now, they haven't break the 2 year gap for their movies.

Anyway, Fox has 2015 for Fantastic Four. X-Men could wait for 2016, where the summer season is less crowded.

X-Force should come in 2015.
We have 2 Marvel Studios movies per year, should have at least one X-connected per year since now.

There's no mandate saying they have to release it in the summer. Look at Thor, The Hunger Games, The Hobbit and the next Captain America. They've all proven that you don't need to release a blockbuster within the traditional release window. A summer release date doesn't guarantee a big success.

April and November are great options as well with less competition. The summer slate is just becoming way too packed.

And as if the X-Men movies have the same strength as those other movies. Lets be real. And since you mentioned Thor, that movie is doing not so well in the United States. I imagine it would have performed worse if it didn't get the so called Avengers boost.

totally agree.

I think 2015 should be the only year without a X-related movie. In this case, its a F4 movie.

So from 2016 on, each year should have something from the X-universe, just each year with a different cast/concept.

if Fox wants to release a X-MEN main team in 2017, Xforce should come in 2016 without doubt.

this way by 2017 other characters will be already introduced, and if Fox wants a crossover after 2017 movie, they will have both casts already.

There are 4 full years until 2017, so thats more than enough time to release something new and different.

I think that BOTH movies have a good chance of being released in either 2016 or 2017.

Wolverine 3 is probably destined for 2016.

X Force could be 2015 if they get a move on and film it next year but more likely 2017 at this rate.

Im sure Fox wont release XForce and a big X-Men team movie on the same year.

would be pleasently surprised if they did, but highly unlikely

I don't think it would be strategically smart to even release an X-Force and X-Men team movie in the same year. They would cannibalize each other no doubt as many movie-goers would just see them as being the same thing.

Do one team movie and maybe one solo movie a year at the most. So X-Force could release the same year as the next Wolverine, than the year after that, a First Class 3 plus another solo movie such as Gambit or Deadpool. Than maybe another event movie such as DOFP for the only release a year after that.

Don't copy Marvel Studios on quality but certainly their business model

Not really, Marvel releases two films a year. Heck, they're releasing Ant Man only a couple of months after Avengers 2, their BIG event movie. You can do it, you'd just have to spread them out. For instance, have the big movie in the summer and the more obscure one at some other point in the year when the competition won't be as heavy.

You just said "Daredevil had the 2nd highest grossing Febuary opening of all time back then only behind Hannibal ( which had an already established following)" yeah you don't care about records. LOL.

And I didn't say every film should be a big hit, but every X-Men film that Fox releases should at least get moderate success at the box-office, not underwhelming or just okay like $179 million that Daredevil got worldwide back in 2003. Films like X-Force would probably underperform or perform just okay in months like February and January, and it would just look more evident that spin-offs are less marketable and appealing to mainstream viewers.

Films like Ghost Rider, Elektra, Punisher, Blade, Daredevil weren't released in summer and look at how much money they earned compare to the movies that were released in the summer. Obviously summer is more fitting to CBM movies. And some films like Oz, Thor, already has their established fanbase/franchise and properties like Alice in Wonderland is already well-known to mainstream viewers. If you think films like X-Force would perform similar to Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Hunger Games in March, then sure there's no problem with releasing X-Men movies in March or April or November or December. But as of right now, a X-Men film could barely crack the $150 million in the U.S. with a summer release date, I just don't think its possible that they would get more or perform better with a non-summer release date.
