I'm of two minds about it. On the one hand, if this Fox/Disney merger happens (and it probably will), Dark Phoenix will just be a pointless afterthought to the X-Men series since we all know Marvel Studios will reboot that franchise. I'm also not fond about them taking yet another time jump without aging the actors up at all. I doubt there'd be that much protest if it were canned. On the other hand, I have really enjoyed McAvoy and Fassbender as Xavier and Magneto and I'd like to see them finish out those roles on a strong note after the disappointing Apocalypse. I think Dark Phoenix will see release, though. They've already filmed the thing and have poured a lot of money into it so it'll probably see the light of day, even if it is the last Fox X-Men film (not including New Mutants, which'll probably just be a one-off or whatever's next for Deadpool). I think worst case scenario with Venom is that it sucks, but Tom Hardy turns in a good performance. I've yet to see him phone anything in. But best case scenario is Venom turns out to be like Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which had horrible trailers but the final product turned out to be quite the opposite.
