Fox announced it future Marvel moviesslate last night, including a sequel to the FF movie they haven’t even shot yet. But Fox has to keep making these movies or else Disney will make them so, full speed ahead. FF 2 opens July 14, 2017. There is also going to be a Wolverine movie on March 3, 2017. Even though Hugh Jackman has tragically revealed that he won’t be Wolverine forever, we’d hope that he’ll still be around and cut as hell for this one. Director James Mangold is on board.
Then there is a THIRD movie set for July 13, 2018 — but the subject is a mystery. Disney piles to pull these “mystery movies” and one was Guardians of the Galaxy and the other was Ant-Man so Fax won’t let a good thing go.
What will it be? Maybe another X-men movie. Or Deadpool. Or X-force. Or an X-men/FF team-up. Or…the Silver Surfer? I mide up the last one but the rest have all been rumored at one point or another. I’d put my money on something mutanty, but we’ll see.
Fox also announced that The Secret Service, directed by Matthew Vaughn and based on the Mark Mallar/Dave Gibbons comic has been moved from March 6, 2015, to October 24, 2014—sounds like a vote of confidence there, as February is a bad time to open a movie.
