All Your Favorite X-Men are Back for ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’

We’ve heard rumblings that Patrick Stewart is done with the X-Men franchise, and there’s no reason to think he would be around for X-Men: Dark Phoenix. But Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, and Jennifer Lawrence have all confirmed their return.

From the Deadline report:

Fox has formalized plans for Dark Phoenix, the next installment of the X-Men franchise. This all just happened, but they’ve set Simon Kinberg as director (long rumored), and the studio set a release date of  November 2, 2018. Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, and Kodi Smit-McPhee are all reprising when production begins in Montreal.

Yes, we are getting another X-Men movie from 20th Century Fox. Make of this news what you will. But Bryan Singer isn’t on board to direct, Simon Kingberg is so that’s good news. At least I think it’s good news.

Stay tuned for more updates on X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
