Simon Kinberg gives an updates on ‘Dark Phoenix’ reshoots, getting ‘X-Force’ done and the ‘Gambit’ film

The next X-Men film, Dark Phoenix is undergoing significant reshoots and the looming Disney purchase of Fox has put most of the Fox-Marvel universe in a gray area, but the film’s director, Simon Kinberg, gives fans an update.

“It’s normal for all these big movies now. We’ll go back when we can get all those actors together, and then it will give me enough time to have it ready and looking perfect.”

Kinberg spoke with Entertainment Weekly, also discussing the Deadpool spin-off X-Force which is set to have Drew Goddard serving as the film’s writer and director. No surprise, Kinberg confirms two returning characters from Deadpool 2.

“Drew, Ryan, and I sat down and talked quite a bit about what X-Force would be, but we haven’t on settled who those characters are yet. But certainly, we’d want Cable and Domino to be part of it.”

So, while things are up in the air, if X-Force happens, expect Zazie Beetz to be back with Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin.

Dark Phoenix isn’t the only film in the franchise that fell victim to a delay as New Mutants was pushed back to February 22, 2019.

Lastly, Kinberg opened up about the long in development Gambit film starring Channing Tatum which has lost three directors including Gore Verbinski who was previously set to direct but recently departed from the film’s production.

Kinberg revealed that the studio is still meeting with directors for the fan-favorite mutant’s solo film, “We have a really great script for that, and we’ve met with a bunch of directors in the last couple of weeks.”

Dark Phoenix is directed by Simon Kinberg and stars James McAvoy as Charles Xavier (Professor X), Michael Fassbender as Erik Lehnsherr (Magneto), Sophie Turner as Jean Grey (Dark Phoenix), Tye Sheridan as Scott Summers (Cyclops), Evan Peters as Peter Maximoff (Quicksilver), Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkholme (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult as Hank McCoy (Beast), Kodi Smit-McPhee as Kurt Wagner (Nightcrawler), and Alexandra Shipp as Ororo Munroe (Storm). Jessica Chastain will also appear as the film’s villain.

New to the franchise are Ato Essandoh, who plays a character named Jones, and Summer Fontana who plays the younger version of Jean.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix arrives in theaters on February 14, 2019.
