Does Gambit still not have an actual director though and no one else but Tatum attached at this point?

they signed Lizzy too. or she was in talks.
Im sure they have met with a lot of directors this year, the big question mark is if they found "the one" or not.

Lol, is Channing Tatum still waiting on this and thinking this film is going to happen now?

Entertainment Weekly had said earlier that it would take two years for Disney to take over Fox. Just because the board agrees to it, it takes a while for everything to transfer over. There are plenty of examples of how slow the process can be in.
150 million is not a big deal; releasing it will hurt MCU's reboot of X-Men, which will generate WAY more than 150 million. It's asinine to put it out in the theatre and hurt the franchise in the long run.

that gif represents perfectly Fox's problem. All males, and only one of them being an actual X-Man. meh

give me the f**** awesome and badass X-Women, give me Cyclops, give me the great Nightcrawler, the badass Archangel. Not that Charles-Magneto-Wolverine show. Im done with this universe mostly because of them and Mystique, to be honest

Maybe I'm in the minority but Mystique is one of the characters that I'd like to see redeemed by Marvel. She can be a great villain when used correctly.

Well, I guess they’ll be asinine, then.

That is kinda weird now that you mention it. He's missing out.

I think you need her if you're going to do Rogue and Kurt again. I hope they don't take the Spider-man route and decide to put important characters like those in the back burner for his knows how long.

Naw we can do better.

He only has Gambit's body, not the talent.

I think the MCU will probably go for a younger actor when they cast their Gambit

Only one big budget movie was never released. It was a Chinese movie that went through multiple directors and was a complete mess. It supposedly cost 200 million. There are plenty of low budget films that got canned because actors died, controversy, or just were really bad. And before you say the F4 film from the 90s that was very low budget. I don't see how it will hurt X-Men for Disney any worse than ASM 2 did for Spiderman. I doubt it will be F4 bad or anything.

Yeah, they’re very reminiscent of the other First Class Posters.

True. I’m curious to see what they have in store for Dark Phoenix. Maybe Fox will feel pressured to release something this weekend, now that the Disney acquisition is imminent.

No surprise here. The writing’s been on the wall for months. If you asked me a year or two ago, I would have been against the rights reverting to Disney this early, but I really enjoyed Phase III, and it’s become increasingly clear that Fox’s long term lack of faith in these characters has left the franchise in a rut.

Here's to hoping it's not a repeat of the EW Charmander naked Dark Phoenix cover.

Phase III has been unbelievable, and you can see that Kevin Feige's careful long term planning is finally paying off big time. If he applies the same strategy on X-Men, we'd have so many epic stories that will show up on the big screen. I really can't wait to see what Feige has in store for our Merry Mutants.

Btw, I really don't think Fox will be releasing any movies without first consulting with Disney; they're on the same team now, and I doubt Fox will do anything to upset Iger and Disney, and that includes Dark Phoenix.

Exactly. The dividends from long term planning for the X-Men franchise would be amazing.

How? How do we know what they'll be able to do with films or television shows that have already been completed?

Very bad news.

It's like to to have (at least) the heart of Claremont's run (Fox), throw everything and come back to the early flat Lee's stories if we are lucky (Disney).

After Disney raped Spidey, Cap, Thor etc... (with the only exception of Daredevil, but it's more a Netflix thing).

Oh well, we will have costumes!

Let's hope they put double the effort that Fox did in their world building and story telling because no MCU film except Winter Soldier has shown it can handle Xmens tone and thematic depth.
