I suppose we should have seen this coming with Disney’s recent Fox buyout. Not just because the X-MEN will soon be a part of the MCU, but because when huge companies get bought, shit takes awhile to adjust.
X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX shifts from November 2nd, 2018 to February 14th, 2019. But wait, that’s “dump month”! Not a good sign.
NEW MUTANTS shifted from April 2018 to February 2019, and now to August 2nd, 2019! Damn, also not a good sign.
Phew, that’s a lot of movement. A part of me just can’t help thinking this will give the studios enough time to figure out how to connect the MCU to the X-Universe.
Personally, I think Thanos and Dark Phoenix both should wipe their universe and Marvel should start from scratch. How cool would that be!? Thanos completely destroys the MCU and Dark Phoenix completely destroys the X-Verse. A boy can dream.
