In some mildly ironic news, it sounds like on the heels of potentially getting bought out by Disney, Fox is looking to have their Marvel output equal that of Disney for the next couple years.
This year alone, Fox is looking to release two films with Deadpool 2 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix (It was formerly three before The New Mutants was pushed to next year), and based on a new THR report, it sounds like they’ll be upping their game to three next year. For those three, we’re likely getting The New Mutants, X-Force, and Gambit (assuming that one doesn’t just collapse into a ball of nothingness).
But don’t expect them to fall flat immediately after. The report goes on, saying that they’re expecting to put out yet another three films in 2020 — though we don’t really know what those films could be. Between the potential Silver Surfer film, a Doctor Doom movie, and maybe even Deadpool 3 (though they may wait another couple years so enthusiasm doesn’t fizzle), it seems like the potential is there to make a memorable, three-film 2020.
That being said, Fox is no Marvel Studios. While Marvel has managed to create a thriving single world with a solid release schedule, Fox has always been a bit more traditional, playing it by ear with each film, re-assessing, and then moving forward. As such, don’t be surprised if we end up with two films next year, and maybe two films in 2020, as they’re pretty good about delaying/canceling films when they simply aren’t working.
