If you were eager to discover Dark Phoenix after the first trailer, you will have to make a reason. The film’s release has just been rejected by the Fox.

A few months ago, the Fox already announced a postponement of the film Marvel’s Dark Phoenix. Originally scheduled for 2018, it was not scheduled to be released until February 2019. A few days ago, a first trailer was released, suggesting that the release was not very far. Unfortunately for fans, this is no longer the case. We will have to take his trouble in patience.

Dark Phoenix is postponed until June 2019

According to a report by Deadline, Fox has decided to postpone the release of Dark Phoenix once again. Instead of a release in theaters on February 13, 2019, the film will be screened only from June 7, 2019, which will make it a blockbuster of the Summer. Why this postponement? A perfectly legitimate question that finds its answer very easily: a release in the summer is a “better date”. And it also gives the film a better chance in the Chinese market.

Indeed, the trailer of Dark Phoenix would have accounted for no less than 44 million views in China during the first 24 hours. In other words, the Chinese market is very interested in the film. A postponement is always unfortunate but it will only increase the excitement and expectations of the fans. Let’s just hope that the result will be up to it.

This to make the most of the Chinese market

Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox’s latest Marvel movie, following Disney’s purchase of the studio. Several reports already evoke the integration of X-Men, The Fantastic Four and Deadpool in the MCU. The future looks interesting for lovers of superheroes. To be continued!
