X-Men: Dark Phoenix and X-verse spinoff The New Mutants have been delayed, Variety reports.

Well, X-Men: Dark Phoenix is moving from November of this year to February 14th of next year, with no real reason given for the delay other than the fact that Bohemian Rhapsody is now taking its spot.

Bohemian Rhapsody, the Freddie Mercury biopic, has come forward from December to November, and will now be with us on November 2 of this year.

Meanwhile Bohemian Rhapsody, which once shared an X-Men connection with former director Bryan Singer, is likely getting delayed due to its troubled production. Coming off the critical failure and commercial disappointment that was X-Men: Apocalypse, Dark Phoenix is meant to be the creative revival of the core X-Men series, while New Mutants takes a new horror-inspired spin on the comic book franchise.


Dark Phoenix is the latest installment out of the long running franchise based on the Marvel Comics property.

The delay for X-Men: Dark Phoenix is pretty understandable, with February proving to be a big opportunity after the success of movies like Deadpool and most recently Black Panthers.

Directed by Josh Boone, The New Mutants plans to flip the script on the superhero genre by injecting it with a horror movie element. The next post-Apocalypse installment of 20th Century Fox's superhero saga has been bumped from its planned November release date to February 14, 2019.

That film will star Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik, Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane, Charlie Heaton as Cannonball, Henry Zaga as Sunspot, Blu Hunt as Mirage and Alice Braga as Cecilia Reyes. That film will be released March 1, 2019, pushing out police thriller The Force.
