It seems more likely than not the Disney/Fox deal will be finalized. At this point, the only way it doesn't happen is if Comcast changes their mind by abandoning Sky and bids again for the Fox assets by the end of this week(won't happen) or a third party from FAANG out of the blue significantly out-bids the Mouse for the Fox assets prior to that fateful shareholder meeting scheduled for July 27th. If the Fox/Disney deal goes as expected, at the rate its expected to close(by December of this year) then Disney/Marvel could potentially control the X-Men property and all related characters before Dark Phoenix comes out. Which means technically Dark Phoenix will be a Disney film even though at the time it was being shot Disney did not own Fox. Therefore, should Disney release Dark Phoenix(if they get Fox in time) on its currently scheduled February 14, 2019 release date it will be released a month before Disney/Marvel's film Captain Marvel comes out on March 8th. In my opinion, given the fact that both Captain Marvel and Dark Phoenix coincidentally are both 90's period pieces(but in totally different universe's) and apparently Dark Phoenix is rumored to have the Skrulls in them, I think Disney should move Dark Phoenix out of its February release date and put it in a date after Captain Marvel comes out in theaters. I think there would be some brand confusion releasing them so close to each other, imo. Though I still think the film should be released in theaters since I want fans of this series to be able to say goodbye to this version of the franchise before its inevitably rebooted into the MCU. I understand the concerns many have that if the movie is bad(which likely will be the case given who's behind the camera & if that rumored plot synopsis is to be believed) then that will hurt the brand but even if that is the case the X-franchise will survive Dark Phoenix even if it sucks. I want to know what the general consensus on what Disney should do with the upcoming main X-film: Should Dark Phoenix still be released in theaters despite the Disney purchase or should Disney just shelve it and dump it on the streaming service? Where does everyone here stand on the fate of that film if/when Disney gets Fox?
