20th Century Fox plots out dates for new Marvel films

20th Century Fox is taking a page out of Disney/Marvel Studios’ book by plotting out the dates to a few of their future Marvel films.

The third Wolverine movie, which has recently hired writer David James Kelly to pen the script with The Wolverine‘s director James Mangold returning, is set to be released March 3, 2017. This will be Hugh Jackman’s eighth outing as the fast-healing mutant, and possibly his last.

Fox has also selected a date for the sequel to the reboot of the Fantastic Four, despite the first installment not even having finalized its casting yet. Sort of like Sony deciding to make their Amazing Spider-Man franchise into a four film series, and later coming up with spinoffs to expand the universe, all based on one film that did only moderately well at the box office, except worse. But come what may, the Fantastic Four sequel is set for July 14, 2017.

There will also be another Marvel film released on July 13, 2018, but the name has yet to be revealed. Some fans speculate it may be the rumored X-Force film, a spinoff of X-Men, which would allow Fox to keep the rights to the character Deadpool a little longer so they don’t revert back to Marvel.

Fox’s next Marvel film coming to the screen is X-Men: Days of Future Past, arriving in theaters May 23, with the sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse, due out May 27, 2016. Which films are you looking forward to seeing? And which movie do you hope fills the mystery spot? Sound off in the comments!
