Not letting the heat slow down, Fox has set three release dates for their upcoming comic-book films. The first comes as no surprise, with a release date of March 3, 2017 set for James Mangold's "The Wolverine 3". Mangold revealed on twitter earlier this week that he was planning a third standalone film after Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Apocalypse", so we're right on track with his statement. The March release is a bit out of the usual Summer releases for super-hero films, but the game has definitely been changing.
The more interesting set of news was that a release date of July 14, 2017 has been set for "Fantastic Four 2". The current reboot of the first film, being helmed by Josh Trank, has had a variety of issues up to this point. The cast has recently been locked including Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell and Miles Teller and names being tossed around for Doctor Doom. We haven't heard any further development on the storyline however, other than the fact that numerous rewrites have occurred. Will Trank return for the sequel or will Fox play that one by ear, after they see how the first one is received?
The third film has me personally the most excited. A July 13, 2018 release date has been set for an "Untitled X-Men/Marvel" film. Could this be the "X-Men" and "Fantastic Four" crossover we've all been waiting for? All signs point to yes, especially considering the other two films that were announced.
Out of the three, which title are you most excited for? Let us know in the comments section below!
