If we thought Fox's off-the-rails, cinematic X-verse was quickly approaching its merciful end... not so fast. The Disney purchase deal won't be official until Antitrust Enforcement approves it (if they approve it). So, in the meantime, Fox has mashed the accelerator and is going to crank out as many cash grabs as possible before the last stroke of midnight. EIGHT as a matter of a fact! Dark Phoenix and Deadpool 2 this year, then THREE in 2019 and three more in 2020!
Anybody want to place bets on the quality of these as-yet unnamed movies that are going to be shoved through the pipeline as quickly as possible? We do know The New Mutants will be one of the 2019 films (btw, why did they start promoting this two years before release??). Please, please, US Government do us all a favor and get this deal done.
