Disney Delays New Mutants Release With Black Widow Likely To Follow Over Coronavirus Fears

Recommended Posts

Can you imagine if this movie does well and they decide to do a sequel? All the actors will probably be at least 5 years older from when they first filmed this one!

That was probably because that's how the Fox streaming rights for theatrical releases were setup

Exactly. The producers of these movies, Dark Phoenix and New Mutants, have a deal where HBO has first dibs on streaming.

The very fact that Disney has their own streaming, yet their movie (after a run in theatres) debuts on HBO proves it.

My suspicion is: Disney would rather make money on whatever paltry Box Office $$$ either movie (DPh and NM) would make instead of cancelling the theatrical release altogether and making ZERO money out of it and having HBO benefit from new subscribers from debuting those movies first. We know Disney has no problem canceling a theatrical release if they can still debut a movie on their Disney+ streaming: Artemis Fowl.

Guys, Dark Phoenix was no masterpiece, but have you watched the other X-Men films? Sure, it was worse than Days of Future Past and Logan, but about in the same tier as Apocalypse and the Wolverine, which is to say wayyy better than all the other garbage Fox put out. It was among the better movies in a terrible franchise. I guess I'm just not sure what anyone was expecting from the studio that brought us Origins: Wolverine, First Class, and the original trilogy.

And I still would like to see or at least know what was the original ending! I also enjoyed The Wolverine, but the director's cut version.

Yeah, I thought the Wolverine was fine! Again, no masterpiece, but solid entertainment, same as Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix.

Sure, Apocalypse looked cheap and The Wolverine was uneven (not even mentioning X-men: Origins Wolverine and X-men: The Last Stand, two of the three worst of the franchise) but Dark Phoenix committed the cardinal sin of franchise movies: BORING. I'd rather rewatch those other movies because I can at least enjoy some parts. I can't say the same for Dark Phoenix.

X2 was a gem. But yea First Class was pretty bad.

I don't know. I think Dark Phoenix had its moments. It definitely had some boring parts too, though. I liked X2 a lot when it came out, but it hasn't aged well, in my opinion.
