'X-Men' Shake-Up: 'Deadpool 2,' 'Gambit,' 'The New Mutants' Get New Dates

'X-Men' Shake-Up: 'Deadpool 2,' 'Gambit,' 'The New Mutants' Get New Dates

And, finally, more news on Gambit: the film, which we learned this morning has no director, has been pushed back to June 7th, 2019.

Deadpool 2, meanwhile, has moved forward to May 18, and thus will be with us two weeks earlier.

That being said, Miller is now prepping his Terminator reboot with James Cameron, and presumably once he's finished with that, Disney and Marvel Studios will have made their decision as to how they plan to handle the X-Men moving forward.

The news about the changed date came a few hours after Deadline reported that the movie lost Gore Verbinski as the director of the project.

What are the reasons for these delays exactly?

The semi-good news, according to Jeff Sneider of The Tracking Board, is that The New Mutants' has been given this extra time in order to enhance the scare factor and make it the full-blown X-Men horror movie which the trailer seemed to promise: "Word on the street is that after the film tested well but not great, the studio made a decision to actually embrace the film's horror elements and beef up the scares in the wake of the success of It and Get Out a year ago".

He follows Rupert Wyatt who left in October 2015 and Doug Liman in August 2017.

It's also learned that both New Mutants and Gambit see changes as well. He just might be able to pull this off, and he's also been looking to get behind the camera, developing potential directorial debuts such as Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock and The Son.

At this point, Tatum should just direct Gambit himself in order to push his passion project through the studio system and keep everything on track for a March production start.

Stay tuned for more on 20th Century Fox's X-franchise as further updates become available. While there will be the inevitable success with the new Deadpool movie and the next X-Men sequel coming later this year, not everything else appears to be coming together as smoothly.
