Oh, you thought Fox was done this weekend after dating four Avatar movies? Nope, they followed that by dating three X-Men movies and we won’t have to wait long for them.

Josh Boone’s New Mutants will be the first one in US theatres, opening April 13, 2018. That’s followed by David Leitch’s Deadpool 2 on June 1, 2018 and then X-Men: Dark Phoenix on November 2, 2018.
The biggest news here is confirmation that the next X-Men movie is, indeed, a Dark Phoenix film. Previous rumours had the title as X-Men: Supernova but X-Men: Dark Phoenix is much more direct.
Not on the list is X-Force, which is current being written and is rumoured to kind of act as a kind of Deadpool 2.5 with not just Deadpool, but Cable and Domino, who were both just cast.
Fox also pushed The Predator from February 2018 to August 3, 2018.
