Next year could be a huge year for Fox’s X-Men Universe as today they officially confirmed release dates for three X-Men films. ‘New Mutants’ is up first on 13th April, which will be directed by Josh Boone, followed by ‘Deadpool 2’ on 1st June. Finally, the follow up to Bryan Singer’s ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’, ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ will release 2nd November.

We have next to no details about  ‘Dark Phoenix’, but we do know David Leitch will be in the director’s chair for ‘Deadpool 2’, with Ryan Reynolds returning as the Merc with a mouth. Joining him in this sequel is Zazie Beetz as Domino and recently announced Josh Brolin as Cable! 

Comic book movie fans look set to have a fantastic year to look forward to, with these 3 on the list alongside ‘Black Panther’ in February,  the huge ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ in May, ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ is currently dated for July, and Jason Momoa’s fist solo outing as Aquaman in December.
