Disney today has announced that the 20th Century Fox New Mutant movie is being indefinitely delayed as they look for new release dates. While the MCU Black Widow movie is still on the books for a May 1st release, reports are that Disney is looking at alternative dates for it's release as well. These are just a few in what is a growing list of movies being delayed over growing fears of the Coronavirus.
Deadline has the opportunity to sit down with X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner during TCA and questioned her about Marvel's Kevin Feige, the Gambit movie and the New Mutants movie. Shuler Donner knows that handing the X-Men franchise to Disney and Marvel’s Kevin Feige is in good hands. “Kevin (Feige) and I started the first movie, he worked for me, he has a great story sense when it comes to weaving each world together, I trust him and I trust where he will take it,” said Shuler Donner. As for the Gambit movie with Channing Tatum; its final result will be determined by the new Disney Marvel when it comes to fruition. The film is currently not bubbling in development. There’s no director attached to the pic even though Fox has it dated for March 13th, 2020. As for Marvel characters, Shuler Donner says that there’s been some thoughts about a new Wolverine down the road. "It’s all in Disney’s playground and they get to decide,” said the producer. Will she be sticking around with the X-Men franchise once Disney takes control? “I don’t know, I don’t think so, certainly in name credit, it’s up to Kevin (Feige),” said Shuler Donner, “I don’t know what Kevin is thinking, I think he’s still dealing with the wealth of characters and trying to make sense of it all.” Shuler Donner hoped to clear up the rumors of New Mutants heading to Hulu, Shuler Donner, who yielded production oversee of the project to Simon Kinberg, says that she’s “hopeful” that the teen-horror pic will receive a theatrical release. The pic is currently scheduled to hit theaters on August 2nd. “They worked hard on it,” said Shuler Donner about the film’s production team, “I want to see it released (theatrically), I’d hate to see it thrown at Hulu.”
