Okay, so what’s the deal with X-Men: Dark Phoenix? Sadly, there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of information at this point. The long-awaited X-Men film, which will serve as the directorial debut of longtime franchise writer and producer Simon Kinberg, was pushed back from its release this year into next year, and earlier this week, we reported on the news that the film was randomly pulled from Fox’s website (though it’s still not clear if it was just a glitch).
In regards to the film getting pushed back, it was rumored that the film was undergoing serious reshoots. Given the opportunity to ask one of its starts, Digital Spy jumped at the chance, asking Sophie Turner about what reshoots they were hoping to get. Here was Turner’s response:
“I think it’s just a few bits and bobs, reshoot-wise. To be honest, I don’t even know what we’re reshooting at the moment. So I couldn’t really tell you much about that one.”
“All I know is that I’ll be back in Montreal at some point soon, and that the Valentine’s Day release date is quite a positive thing, because Black Panther got released on Valentine’s Day. So we’re keeping positive about it.”
So, from the sound of it, they do seem to be keeping that February 14 release date and the idea that she doesn’t know what they’re reshooting could be seen as an indication that nothing major will be overhauled. That being said, in the grand scheme of things, actors usually are the last to know about this sort of thing, so we’ll really just have to wait and see on that front.
