"Deadpool 2" Lands June 2018 Release Date

I am still left wondering what it is about the Deadpool movie that is so profound, but since everyone else apparently loved it (this guy calls it groundbreaking, ha ha), I will point out that the sequel will be dropping next summer. The real news to me is that they are doing a new X-Men movie about the Dark Phoenix Saga with Sophie Turner as Jean Grey in the lead, who did a great job at demonstrating her total lack of acting ability in the last one. Is there a point of any of this, since Logan will be very hard to top?

Next year is going to be jam-packed in terms of Fox superhero titles: New Mutants will open April 13, 2018, while Dark Phoenix hits cinemas on Nov. 2. New Mutants, directed by Josh Boone, follows a young team of superheroes, while Dark Phoenix will revisit a classic comic book storyline that saw Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) become the host for the Phoenix Force, a cosmic entity that eventually drives her to becoming a destructive force that ultimately leads to her death. Longtime X-Men writer and producer Simon Kinberg is a top contender to direct the project, which is a followup to 2016's X-Men Apocalypse.
